Just remembered a barter story!
I think it was 2003ish and a “guru” contacted me about buying a domain name I owned. I immediately had visions of the million dollar pay day!
Wish I still had the correspondence.
Anyway, we decided that he would coach me to help me build my business and I would give him the domain name.
I don’t recall how long the coaching program went…it was one call a week… but it really worked out well for both of us.
My association with him gave me great credibility with other “gurus” and helped me grow my affiliate base.
Based on his experience with me he started a coaching program which lead to live events, I believe.
This actually reminds me that I should see if I can barter for some other domain names I own.
