What Problem Are You Solving?
Despite the numerous products and services for sale in today's
expanding barter marketplace, members of a trade exchange like all
consumers, will exchange their hard-earned trade dollars for only
two reasons: either to feel good or to solve a problem.
put it in a more personal perspective, your customers don't buy what
your company sells … they buy what those goods or services do for
- They don't purchase clothes. They
purchase a sharp appearance, style and attractiveness.
don't buy insurance. They buy peace of mind and a comfortable future
for their family and themselves.
- They don't buy a house.
They buy contentment, a long-term investment and pride of ownership.
- They don't buy a book. They buy pleasant hours of reading and
the profits of knowledge.
- They don't purchase toys. They
purchase happy moments for their children and grandchildren.
- They don't buy a computer. They buy the pleasures of having the most
- They don't buy airline tickets. They buy
the comfort and convenience of a fast, safe, on-time arrival at a
destination feeling like a million dollars.
What does the
average consumer buy? Ideas, good feelings, self-respect, comfort
and happiness — those are the things they want.

Cashflow Can Be A Constant Problem For Small Companies
According to David Birch, a gazelle is a company that has a
minimum of $100,000 in revenues and manages to grow at least 20%
over a four-year period. Only 3% of all companies have accomplished
this demanding task. Birch, who is credited with hatching the
notion that small rather than large companies are the engines of job
creation, says that a small company views profitability as variable
and quite flexible. But cashflow is a constant issue because of
fixed expenses and overhead, such as payroll and rent.
Positive cashflow equals business survival. But not all cashflow is
due to good management, and not all of it will help you survive
either. Accordingly, if you find that you have extra cash at the end
of the month, follow this five-step strategy:
- Determine the source of the your positive cashflow.
- Project future cashflow.
- Establish priorities for the cashflow.
- Research viable strategies and opportunities to generate
- Choose the best strategy for your business and stick with
After all is said and done, positive cashflow comes from only
four sources: new debt, new investment, sale of fixed assets, and
operations. The first three are limited. So if the fourth source,
operations, doesn't kick in, then sooner or later your creditors
pull the plug.
Make it your goal to go after one of the
best sources for new cashflow — working with your trade exchange

Is Anyone Looking Out For Your Financial Interests?
According to a survey by market researcher PSI Global, only 15% of
owners with annual business revenues under $500,000, have been
contacted by their banker. So, if you own a small business don't sit
by the phone waiting to hear from your banking representative.
