Open to barter & New business

I am open to barter; I like to trade. It's great when you have a need for something but can't pay for it with cash. I am more than happy to discuss trade's for my services. In truth I prefer barter as I am still being paid :D

Items I will accept for trade:
At the moment I am looking for items for my sons' birthdays (one turns 13 in July and one turns 1 in June). I am also looking for party invitations (preferably digital), custom blog templates (for blogger & or wordpress), logos, banners,  gifts for my friends and family, advertising. I am also open to suggestions.

If you cannot afford to hire me for a day (or to buy a promotions package) please feel free to approach me about a barter.

3 month promotions package:
For 3 months of promotion it is $50. This is full-time promotion (banners on website, regular tweets, referrals, shoutouts on facebook, blogs, added to a business directory and more). If you have hired me for a day's promo before you will receive a discount on this promotions package (and I will also wear your shirt and make a couple of promo videos if I am not booked up). If you would like the occassional day with me wearing your TEE (or other item)and you have a TEE then there is no extra cost (except what it will cost you to send it to me). If you do not have a TEE and want me to make a TEE up there will be a small additional cost to cover this.

Please Note: If I am booked to promote someone for a full day I will still promote those people that have bought package (in a smaller way). My main focus will be on the Business of the day.

Reminder: What is TEEs Me, Please?
TEEs Me, Please! is a fun way to promote your business, cause or event. If you are looking for something outside of the box then this is it. I am a human billboard. I will promote your business, cause or event for a whole day online & offline.

A TEE promotion is NOT only for business. I will wear a TEE to announce an engagement, promote a cause, celebrate a birth, birthday or anniversary and so on. If you do not have a TEE or want me to make a TEE I can wear my own business TEE or a TEE that compliments your business or occassion.

If you have booked me before for a full day  and would like to book me again (as you are having a sale, changing prices, it's a special occassion) then you will receive additional days at a lower cost.

Sometime ago a respected business consultant reccommended i put my price up to over $100 per day. Most of the people i know cannot afford this and I dont want to be promoting many large businesses. $10 for a day of promotion still saw me getting paid but i felt as if I was undervauing myself. $30 is my preferred price but if you factor in the cost to make or post a TEE that sends the cost up to approx $50. So as of June 1, 2010 the set price for a day of promotion is $20 (for the first time; $10 for any subsequent days), plus you will receive a discount on the promotions package. If you would like me to wear a TEE that you already have you then you will need to send that at your own cost. If you would like me to make a TEE for you that will be an additional cost.

Some special days will still be auctioned eg public holidays and family events.

Freebies & prizes:
I have caused myself a lot of undue stress and financial difficulty by lowering my prices and giving away a lot of freebies. I will be only doing this on rare occassions now (eg to celebrate a milestone).

What I will do is free shoutouts, i will exchange banners, exchange links etc. 

I love to review products. Reviews are free (unless they are a part of someone's day). I am happy to return the item if you prefer. If you want to send two and I can give one away that would be wonderful.

I will add to this as I think of more information to add.

Lacking Motivation

Today I seriously lacked motivation. It was cold, I'm a little sick and I had too much to do and no idea where to start. Oh and being the colder part of the year my depression is raising it's ugly head. And i was missing RJ just a little bit.

I did still achieve a few things today but for some of the day I stopped fighting the lack of motivation and just porttered around.

So what do you do when you are feeling unmotivated? Do you go with the flow or do you try to motivate yourself?
