Barter Exchange Success Stories
Exchange owners share their experiences with The Barter Trainer
Aaron Christensen, Kent Johnson
"I wanted to take an opportunity to write a quick note regarding your training program. When we started thinking about starting a barter company we knew that there were many things that we did not know. We had a basic understanding of barter, but like any business, we knew there would be many layers to running a barter business that we had no idea about. In talking with friends and family, they encouraged us to just bypass your consulting because we could figure it out on our own. We knew we could use some guidance. We are so glad that we used you Tom!
You did a great job in training us on how to start a barter company. We found that the training was very hands on and relevant. We were impressed with the depth of knowledge that you presented and your clarity in explaining how a barter company can operate. We also have been pleased with the fact that we can call at any time for help. We have talked with other trade exchanges that started out the same time we did, and we feel like we have had a head start. Our membership has been continually growing and we know it is in direct relation to your training.
Thank you for all you have done and will do"

"I so appreciated all of your efforts and the essential information I absorbed from my recent training session with you on how to successfully start up my barter business. Together with your full training manual set, the training was extremely informative and helpful with my plans to launch a barter network here in South Korea.
The sharing of your own experiences and especially how you built up your own barter business by elaborating on the profit centers within the barter business and various sales techniques were impressive and most helpful.
I continue to appreciate your quick response to my questions and kind consultation on all the detail matters that I have encountered through the course of my business planning. It’s a comfort to know that I have the barter expert to rely upon for consultation during the growing stages of my barter business, BixTrade Korea, Inc.
Thank you again for all of your time and help, and I look forward to a long and profitable relationship in the barter industry."

A former English teacher, Fran was Department Chair of one of Pensacola's premier high schools; she selected early retirement in order to pursue the barter business.
"I spent much of my life teaching young people and helping them to prepare them for the future. Now I get to work with business owners and professionals and to teach them new and exciting strategies using barter in the marketplace. I would, however, like to credit Tom McDowell, the barter trainer extraordinaire, for making a difference in exchanges across the USA - not only by helping us to achieve success individually, but also networking with other exchanges collectively."

Johnny had been the general manager of a radio station and purchased a barter franchise, before taking Tom McDowell's Barter Trainer Program.
"Coming out of the radio business, I thought I knew a lot about how to trade. I figured that buying into a franchise would give the pieces to the rest of the puzzle. Boy, was I ever wrong! All they gave me was a job, and I paid them for the privilege of working for them. It wasn't until I decided to start my own independent barter trade exchange and took Tom's training that I found out what the barter business really offered. Tom taught me how to make barter work for my clients, but more importantly he taught me how to make money doing it. If it hadn't been for Tom's training I could never have built a business worth so much that I could sell it and retire. The reason my exchange was worth so much was because I had set it up the right way. It ran well and it made money. I attribute a big part of my success to the training I received from Tom."

Past Treasurer of National Association of Trade Exchanges (NATE)
Keith was and still is, a C.P.A. He came to Tom's training class, along with his daughter Kristie, who wanted to start her own business.
"My original plan was just to find out how to do the books for Kristie's new business. But Tom made the barter business opportunity so exciting that I decided to downsize my practice and work in the business. It's a good thing I did, because now Kristie's raising her family and I'm the one running the barter company. As an accountant I never imagined that a business could actually be exciting and rewarding at the same time. The barter industry is exciting and thanks to what we learned from Tom, it's been very, very, rewarding."

"Just a quick note to say thanks for the training I attended last week, it was worth travelling 4000 miles. Your knowledge in the barter industry is second to none, part of me wishes I attended your training before I started in the industry, but having a few years of experience under my belt helped me full understand the inner workings of running an economy."
"I would highly recommend anyone considering entering into the barter industry
to attend your training as I believe it will benefit them enormously and save them costly time and money."
