So I got the change to learn a little more about doing things for trade these past few weeks.  My boss at Silencia  has had a few people approach her and ask for help.  They are just starting up and don’t have a lot of money.  She offers to help for trade- which I think can be a great opportunity.  It works out for both people in my opinion because we get to help people start up and build their brand to hopefully blossom.  Plus, we get some little perks too (yummy hummus, coffee, etc!)

I’m sure there are some negatives to this- and I was wondering if anyone has any input.  In any of your internships or experience, have you found that to be a bad decision?

Happy Holidays!
