Looking at the Downsides of Bartering…

We’ve spent the last few episodes talking about the benefits of bartering…

So, you may be asking yourself what’s the catch or the downside???

This was a great question and one that was asked several times by our listeners. So, in today’s episode, we’re exploring the downsides of bartering and how to handle those nasty pitfalls when trading.  As a person who advocates bartering and has been trading for years, I’ve definitely seen its highs and lows. Join us as we pull back the curtains and take a walk on the dark side and explore the downsides of bartering.
