Today, my neighbor’s 7 year old daughter waited for me by the stoop and traded me 3 pieces of original, signed art in exchange for an extra large bar of Toblerone. She got what she wanted, and I got signed, original art on my walls.
I thought it was a great lesson in creative entrepreneurship.
1. Be in the right place at the right time.
2. Have something to offer, preferably something unique.
3. Be charming and make it hard for the other person to say No.
