Ka-Ching ~ Time Is Money, So Bank It
Most people do a greater variety of tasks that others may not want to do or are incapable of doing themselves, from writing, preparing taxes, babysitting, housecleaning, plumbing or even dentistry. For example, an hour of gardening equals an hour of child care, dentistry, home repair or teaching someone to play chess. The idea is that people trade for what they need and do what they’re good at. Everyone gets what they need by exchanging their expertise.
Time banking works for groups, too. Organizations, agencies, churches and businesses can all can become members of Timebanks USA, formed in 1995, and contribute time, energies, skills and resources.
