End Goal

We got the TV and Projector!

The final trade for onematchstick is done! We have reached the goal of office space for a few startup entrepreneurs! Yeehaa! I had a possible trade with Ketha Innovations for the TV and projector for Allon, where they wanted the brick making machine, and after weeks of emails and zooms and negotiating with the suppliers of the machine, we just didn’t find a way to make the barter part of the trade work. It happens that way sometimes, with trading…

First part of my final trade done!

With my final trade that is in progress with Allon, the blinds were installed this week Tuesday! Wynand and his team did a superb job, and were so precise and cleaned up the mess from the drilling. The roller blinds, in black blockout material, look awesome and it was so great to see the old mats that had been used to block some of the windows, being taken away to storage 🙂 I say a BIG THANK YOU to Wynand…

Updated Wish List for my final trade

Off that list comes carpets – as that fell through (see the story here.) And onto the list went a new item: A projector! So, to make my final trade happen, I need to find some people who will trade with me for the following items:…

To carpet, or not to carpet

I’ve been chipping away at this Wish List for items to make my final trade happen. I’m in negotiations still with people for a lecturn…. and for blinds… And I made it right to the final negotiation with the carpets for the training room! Yes! Brandon of KBAC Flooring had made me an offer for this Vanguard carpet collection, that was partly cash, partly barter, and Allon agreed in principle. When it came to finalising the deal, and the Raizcorp…

End point to trade towards is?

Yesterday I had a client session at Raizcorp (thanks to this update!), and then to avoid loadshedding at my home office, I worked at one of the hotdesks there and bumped into Allon Raiz. He showed me the new office wing he’s been buildling and that led us to look for what I could trade with him as our final trade. And it turns out to be office furniture! ha! So now I start strategising to work backwards from the…
