to focus on activities that can make your business more valuable,
more predictable and more manageable, here are some suggestions.

trading at your marginal cost of doing business. Your barter or
marginal cost of doing business does not include your fixed costs,
as these are stable and covered by your on-going cash business.
8. Increase sales by developing new products or services. More
barter sales mean more cashflow, thus more money for research and
development of new products and services.
