The Beginning of a WEIRD BARTER Deal – Maybe –
CRAIGSLIST BARTER –
What to look for…(Find People who need HELP.)
For Example –
I was running my eyes down the F_R_E_E Section of CraigsList
Found this Item:
“3 skunks free, you trap and remove”
I LAUGHED – and passed it by.
BACK – Because –
LARRY HAS a Problem that I Can SOLVE.
The STINKIER his PAIN
the Better for any Barter deal.
Done so far…
I Called – Got VM and hung up. (I want him to Write me so I can Share What he says to me.)
Then Emailed Larry with a note…
“Your Craigslist Posting brought back memories.
“A – As a Kid We used Humane Wire traps to catch Raccoons and Groundhogs
that are eating our corn. Drove them far away.
“B – We Caught a Skunk. My 2 Brothers wouldn’t Get involved for fear of
getting SKUNK SPRAYED.
“C – But I figured a way to get the door open – safely.
“And had to come up with 2 OTHER Strategies too.
“Skunks seem to love Apples.
“We caught THREE skunks. Each with a different Personality.
the same trick wouldn’t work twice.
FINALLY – I told Larry – “You are 50 Miles away from me.
“How BAD a Problem are your 3 Skunks?
(I mentioned that usually skunks are GOOD to have around – they dig out
and eat Yellow Jacket nests in the ground.)
BARTER ACTION PLAN –
NOW we wait to see what Larry says.
I – How Badly does he want his skunks gone?
II – What is he willing to pay me to come catch his skunks?
III – Will he PAY cash?
IV – What does he have to Barter?
V – Can I just TEACH him what to do and still get Paid?
Unless Larry is a JOKER and CraigsList Clown. HE HAS A BAD SKUNK problem
to risk Getting made fun of on CraigsList by all his friends.
