I have a lot of friends with shops or who are practitioners of massage therapy, make their own products etc. Recently I decided to offer a few of my friends trade. Usually, for example I offer someone who does massage for $100/hour $200 in store credit which is roughly the price I paid for $200 worth of goods. I think it is a good way to treat yourself when you don't have much in the way of cash flow but have tons of goods. I know this isn't revolutionary but, it's a good thought because both business owners get to treat themselves at any stage of business.
