Creating a Shwapportunity

June 9, 2015

Many individuals become overwhelmed when they are bombarded with advertisements about new products, clothing pop-ups, sales, promotions, etc, on a daily basis as they scour the internet. It usually acts as a total distraction from their initial purpose. However, most people can’t seem to stay away from the addiction of online shopping. Most individuals abuse and overuse the moments of their day as they spend time searching and adding countless items to their “shopping bag”. Everyone has the same intention, “When payday comes, I’ll come back!”

That two weeks goes by and before they know it two things have possibly happened: a person has either talked themselves out of their need for the purchase or worse, the wish list items have disappeared due to the long absence. Individuals do not feel like making the effort to search those items again.

Online shopping has become just as tedious as regular shopping. It is time and money.

Shwapportunity is the latest, revolutionary idea that is wiping out competitors and the inconvenience. is an e-Commerce platform that allows individuals to find and swap products with other members. A community of people who have the ability to share and trade with one another in a forum providing a quick, ongoing solution. Shwapportunity has been developed to alleviate the stress of having to wait for the next paycheck for your essential items and the items that you desire. You also never have to feel like you wasted your money on impulse purchases, items that are no longer trending, or being put to good use. Perhaps a stunning, vintage gown that is sitting in your closet, only worn once? Trade it up for another glam piece that you can wear at your next event.  Old cell phones, bags, equipment, memorabilia, there is something for everyone. You can still fulfill your need to online shop as you view everyone’s goods, only now you are getting an even better bargain than anticipated- free!

Shwapportunity offers an extremely wide range of various items to meet your lifestyle standards; everything from high-end couture, clothes for your child as well as, electronics. Members can upload multiple photos and add descriptions of their items as they are displayed by several different categories. “Shwapp” confirmation occurs almost immediately when a transaction is made, members are asked to ship their items within 24 hours. No long, wait, and no high cost. It is as simple to use as uploading a photo to any social media network. With Shwapportunity, your opportunities are endless.

Each member has a profile or a “closet” of their personal items that they are looking to trade. Individuals have the ability to choose which items are being shwapped and with whom. Through the onsite messaging system, a person can deny a swap request, provide counter offers with one another, and of course simply accept and continue. Individuals may also rate one another, their products, and experience to assist other members as they make transactions. There is absolutely no cash payments for items identifying this a completely exclusive, and unique bartering economy.

Creator of Shwapportunity, Alicia Hiller, explains “The concept is simple. We have created an online platform that assists you in getting the products you want without the hassle of paying for them. Leave your wallet at home and search, locate and shwapp for items that you want. Our easy to use interface has your needs in mind. Load items into the My Closet, then connect with others who are searching for products that you own. We created Shwapportunity with one vision in mind: to provide a simple and effective online platform for a surging industry.”

The Economy & Your Business

June 4, 2015

Are You Still At Risk? Not if you consider this tip…

As the president of The Henry George School of Social Science in NYC, Andrew Mazzone offers his financial expertise and insight on the economy and how it has the potential to affect your business. Even seemingly wealthy and successful business owners are at risk of eventually hitting a wall. As most of us already know, there are certain points when a business/company may be experiencing a surplus in funds. Some elite “one percenters” often times take advantage of this increase in profits to benefit their own bank account instead of seeing it as an opportunity to re-invest in the economy or at the very least their own company.

Through Smart Talk, a series of discussions with leading economists, moderated by Andrew Mazonne himself, the economy is not only analyzed, but it is broken down. Professional authorities explain how it will inevitably and directly affect maintaining your business platform so it does not crash and burn in an evolving economy.

When owners are faced with that moment of decision making, their moral compass is often overshadowed by the potential improvement of their own personal status- expanding operations falls lower on the priority list despite their better judgement. The basic fundamentals of business include generating and distributing service. Supply and demand. Economics 101.

However, more and more individuals are beginning to invest in themselves as a business instead of relying on the head honchos leading them to the promise land of financial freedom. Even though this is capitalism at its finest, the authentic “dreamer” and entrepreneurial spirit tend to be blind to the current state of the economy. There is a specific financial strategy common among all of the top players in the industry- reinvesting.  Many intelligent business owners understand the concept of investing in order to prosper, but fail to see the importance of reinvesting.

-And although the country thrives off this mindsight, it is crucial to be educated on the true value of social justice and how the economy works so you can comprehend the benefits of reinvesting.

Every business owner wants the same thing, to be an economic force with ongoing and growing cash flow. Consider this a financial survival guide presented by the individuals revolutionizing the forefront.

Reinvesting is the best way to build your wealth. It is worth keeping in mind that investing isn’t just about the sudden influx of riches, but the appraisal of time and credibility. Reinvestment is a necessary evil. It doesn’t have to be all of your excess “dinero”, but a significant amount of resources, which when targeted effectively, can drastically monetize your bottom line.

Since there is no exact dollar amount to reinvest as missions vary, you can still focus on the other reinvestment aspects of your business- essentially catering to longevity and gain.

  • Reinvest Financially

This includes improving infrastructure, streamlining manufacturing, strengthening customer support/retention, and a more defined, clear-cut marketing strategy. There is truth to the adage that you have to spend money to make money. Tracking of all progress on promotional initiatives is key.

  • Reinvest Your Time

Time is money. By spending a small percentage of your profits to free yourself up can actually work out in your favor. Outsourcing administrative tasks and letting someone else tackle customer service, marketing, and bookkeeping allows you to take the time to step back and re-evaluate your goals and dedicating yourself to increasing sales.

  • Reinvest Expertise & Experience

Further training and education for yourself or your employees can pay off each time new skills are used. Some companies will even offer apprenticeship programs. A well-educated workforce can be a significant asset to a company and smart organizations invest in keeping their employees well trained and up to date on their credentials.

Many people are not savvy enough to allocate reinvestment responsibly simply because they view it as spending money. Implementing the right resources will avoid plateauing, failure, and other burdens. For those who aren’t interested in scaling their company or increasing profits – maybe advanced fortune just isn’t for you.
