I am new to the world of bartering. What I want to do is start off trading my old smart phone with some other goods (e.g. electronics, computer parts, et cetera). I'm going to have a part-time job next week, so it's not paramount that I make a lot of money very quickly. My idea is to trade products that are slightly above the actual value of my products that I'm putting up for trades, which will take time and patience.
Basically, I'm just asking for tips and advice on bartering and/or books/websites/forums that can otherwise point me in the right direction. If it helps, I know how to repair computers and laptops depending on what's wrong with them. I also have a friend who has his own auto repair shop, so somewhere down along the road, I can buy/sell cars for profit.
