Debbie Sardone knew how
to make a buck long before she discovered the secret to hanging on to
it. Now a tried-and-true barter advocate, she is sometimes referred to
as a ‘Barter-preneur’ because of her ability to turn good ideas into
successful business enterprises with the help of barter. Debbie has
bartered for Lasik eye surgery, dental work, auto repairs, printing,
marketing, luxury vacations, therapeutic massages, even parts of her
daughter’s beautiful wedding, and tons more! If you’re still paying
money for something you should be bartering for, STOP IT! This book
tells you how step by step.
