“It doesn’t take money to make money, it takes action – the right, consistent action.”
That is my belief.
Some experts, coaches and thought leaders will tell you that it takes money to make money.
That’s not true. That belief has killed the dreams of far too many business owners. And then there are those business owners, that decide bartering is the way to build their business and solve their money problems.
That’s not true, either.
The bottom line is, bartering is an income blocker. The time you exchange with another person is time that could be spent focusing on getting new clients and generating revenue.
Think of it this way, if a business owner exchanged the time that they are bartering to focus on sharing their expertise and solving their ideal client’s biggest challenge, bartering wouldn’t be a consideration.
If you were to focus on revenue generating activities for one hour and you could close a $5,000 sale during that time, why would you ever barter?
If that’s not reason enough to stand in your power and get paid, let me offer a few more reasons why bartering just isn’t good for business.
- Bartering doesn’t pay bills. You exchange your services for a logo but that logo doesn’t pay invoices. You still need a paying client even after that logo is created. Clients don’t care about our logos, they care about solutions.
- Bartering keeps you from owning your greatness and charging what you deserve.
- Time is one of the most valuable yet least respected resources. The time spent working for free is time that could be spent bringing in revenue. Once that time is gone, it’s gone.
- People value what they pay for.
And lastly, bartering is rooted in a lack mindset. Once that energy is activated, more people that share that mentality will begin to seek your services – for free!
