what kind of "connections" do you have?

and by that i mean free..or even trade. Can you just pick up the phone and have a free baby sitter? Are you able to score free concert tickets...etc...

  • My mom is my free babysitter. I can go to a few restaurants and get free food or half off. I get my car checked out for free too.

  • One of my best friends works at a world-famous comedy club. I can get tickets for just about any show any time I want. I just have to cover the 2 drink/food minimum. I asked her to give me the heads up on a couple shows I want to see if they ever come to town.

  • I love my clients. I have one who is bailing me out of a major building disaster from another contractor for free haircuts and highlites for him and his son for six months.
    I can get free tickets to good shows, my clientele has a lot of musicians.
    My BIL is a manager for a major vacation resort in MN so we get nice cabins for only $50 the whole weekend and free ice fishing, and when we go anywhere he sets us up in a nice room from his company.

  • we don't have many...my husband does a lot of machanic work on the side so sometime we trade stuff out..we will fix someones car..they take care of our AC problems if they come up...i always have family for baby sitters..and sometimes i will go out and have a server or manager from a restaurant recognize me from places i've worked and they will give us a comp on drinks or something. Thats about it though...nothing fun =(
