HOW TO BE A BETTER TRADER IN 2018:
This week we are going to share some ideas from the Midwest Business Exchange in Kalmazoo we trade with, on how the top barter traders do it.
1. Good traders do more than stumble over trade opportunities in the middle of the road. They act. They call. They email. They say stuff like "my daughter is getting married and we need a wedding dress, limo, catering, DJ and a marriachi band.
2. Good traders treat trade dollars as discretionary income. They know MBE (BTE) is found business. They also know the cost of a trade dollar. It's their wholesale cost of goods not their retail selling price.
