Linda Zibell Says Good-Bye After 30 Years Of Dedicated
The unsung heroes of the trade exchange industry are the
hard-working barter brokers that keep business moving among the
members of a trade exchange. One of the best was Linda Zibell. Not
only did she perform for New England Trade for three decades, but
she mentored scores of new brokers who came into the
industry...always glad to assist and share her knowledge and
and others like her are responsible for the maturation of the
commercial barter industry. Below are her thoughts as she exits the
industry. Best wishes Linda, for success in all of your endeavors in
the days ahead.
30 years of watching the barter industry grow,
my time has
come to go to �The Old Brokers Home.� If you are receiving this and
are an owner it is because I hold you in the highest regard. If you
are a broker and are receiving this it is because I think of you as
a friend, colleague and co-conspirator. You hold a very special
place in my heart.
special �10� (fellow brokers from the industry) that travel together
once a year, you have given me so many memories to cherish. From the
very first NATE (National Association of Trade Exchanges) convention
I attended over 20 years ago, it has been my honor to know each and
everyone of you. The friendships forged and the memories we made are
something I will treasure.
30 years effective December 31, 2009 I will be leaving New England
Trade. My last day is December 24, and I wish each and every one of
you a Healthy & Prosperous 2010.
It has been
my pleasure to know you.
