Trade Services

Simbi is an interesting trading platform. You don’t necessarily need to trade service-for-service directly as they use a sort of currency. This means you can “pay” for a service with it or trade your own service. Simbi gives you enough of this currency (called Simbis) for doing things like filling out your profile or connecting social media.

I currently offer two services on Simbi that would work for quick fixes or coaching. Check it out and reach out to me there if you’d like to barter.

Learn to Make Your Own Yogurt

Simple Mason Jar Yogurt is a short book with step-by-step directions for making traditional dairy yogurt or dairy-free / vegan yogurt.

Yogurt-making directions are all over the internet, but many are unnecessarily complicated or don’t provide good results. Simple Mason Jar Yogurt explains enough so you understand the process and can improvise where needed, but doesn’t get bogged down in microbiology lessons. Available on Amazon for $3.99.
