I’ve always had a knack for exchanges. I had been waiting patiently to make my dream exchange.
So, when I discovered Simbi, you can only imagine how excited I was.
For years, I had been looking for these sorts of communities, but I never found one where I felt like I really fit in. Finally, Simbi gave me the chance to talk to different people from all over the world.
Needless to say, I started offering services right away-I almost used up all my simbi within a week! My boyfriend made fun of me for checking my phone every five minutes for a new deal.
“You won’t understand until you try it!” After hearing me talk about Simbi so much, he decided to give it a go. After making his first deal, he was hooked.
Not long after, my one of my biggest dreams came true! A massage therapist popped up in my search, offering her services. I immediately reached out and made a deal for both my boyfriend and me to get massages in exchange for my Creative Solutions consulting services. We got our massages the next week, and it was the most relaxing experience of my life!
Simbi is more than just exchanging services. I offer light language sessions, which are hard to get paid for in money. On Simbi, my sessions are in high demand. In giving and receiving services, I’ve found myself becoming more and more inspired by the positivity that the Simbi users offer.
When I use Simbi, I realize that so many of the most helpful, life-changing gifts and services on the site don’t have a pricetag in dollars. Simbi is full of both practical and creative services. And it’s already happening! One day, I hope to see people doing more of what they love and less of what they have to do. Little by little, exchange after exchange, our world will become much fairer.
There will always be more than enough to go around, because everyone has something to offer!
Thank you, Simbi!
