Did you know that banks aren’t the only ones who have money?
- Private lenders
- The Government
- Your employer
All those guys have money too!
And did you know that money isn’t the only thing that can be exchanged for goods?
Have you ever traded money for money (besides currency exchange)?
Of course not!
You know why? Because that’s stupid!
Money was invented because once upon a time people used to trade product for product. One day someone got smart and realized his product required more sweat to produce, or it was more scarce and therefor had a greater value. Someone was losing in the exchange, so they invented a medium that could be divided more accurately.
Well, barter may be old, but it isn’t dead!
If you can’t get creative enough to squeeze money from any one of the list of people above, maybe you can get creative enough to work out a bartering deal where you do something for them in exchange for them helping you get what you want.
I can’t do all the work for you! Figure it out!
But I can help you with some resources:
