Amber &

Amber D'Ambrosio is an expert in branding and web design. Daniela Busciglio is a consultant who helps groups, organizations, and candidates running for office to frame their message according to their values and build out their messaging to their customers or (potential) voters. After striking up a friendship, Daniela and Amber were able to work together at a rate that made sense for Daniela’s burgeoning company. Amber says: “Thank you Barter & Be for fostering this connection and while we weren't able to actually make a Barter happen we were both still able to create a win/win for both of us!

"I was in the middle of creating the platform/podcast We're All Creative. I was stopped in my tracks when I realized I needed someone to help me with the copy for the homepage. I had some things up there but I really wanted to make an impact when I launched the site so when Ciara Gigleux, from Barter & Be reached out to me it was actually perfect timing. I was able to help her with her new branding, and I was able to get new and improved copy for my platform! We're live now and I couldn't be happier with the way things went with Ciara. She’s amazing! The best part about all money exchanged. When you are just starting something, like I did, money is tight. The ability to trade what I'm good at for someone to help me with what I'm not good at...priceless."
