Barter Soars To New Heights

Dr. Michael Kanter talks about seeing the whole picture. He views his business, his home, and his relationships as integral pieces of a puzzle. He can do that, inwardly, sitting in an office chair, or, piloting his Piper Saratoga, getting a “bird’s eye view” of things.

Those “things” began, as a child, whose favorite uncle was a dentist. He knew he would follow his uncle’s footsteps, and became a dentist, too. He built three dental practices in the Sarasota, Florida area and currently practices at Lakewood Ranch Dental.

Things turned into a thriving 25+ year dental practice, family, a home on the water, a condo in the Bahamas, and the opportunity to snorkel, fish, dive in “absolutely gorgeous, crystal clear blue water.” Those entire pieces slide into place, based on drive, love of work, and a vision to grow a dental practice where, in one testimonial from the Lakewood Ranch Dental website, “it felt like they were all one big family.”

Kanter built his puzzle with an open mind. In 1983, upon returning to Sarasota after general practice residency in Jacksonville, Florida, he launched his original practice, accepting cash and insurance. “That’s when I got into bartering, when I joined IBE (International Barter Exchange),” Kanter says. “When you first start, it’s slow and you try to bring in additional business through whatever means reasonable.”

As a business person who eats out, “a lot,” Kanter befriended a member of IBE in the restaurant business and promptly joined. Finding bartering a promising marketing tool, he joined another one. He did not stay long. He had experienced inequality of reciprocal referrals, questionable pricing amongst members and no follow up from the administrators.

IBE Barter conducted the bartering service completely opposite. “IBE worked well for me,” says Kanter. “As time went on I got more and more IBE barter patients. The good thing about it is, if they are happy with your service, they’ll refer people to you who are cash patients.”

Kanter did not use barter to create a “State of the art facility,” according to the website. However, barter dollars provided office supplies, carpet cleaning and other services. “I had bartering from my first office,” he says. “When I opened my Lakewood Ranch office I continued doing barter because it was something that always worked for me.” Kanter has recently added Pediatrician Dental Services to the IBE Barter Community.

Today from that bird’s eye perspective, Kanter sees about 1000 patients, but doesn’t know how many pay with barter credit. Many have become a staple of his practice.  “It doesn’t matter what form of payment my patients use. Being here so long and having so many patients that have been patients for so long, and they have families, I know, there are a good number of IBE patients when they come in,” he says.

barter-soars-leaningThree practices and plenty of word-of-mouth advertising, Kanter says he doesn’t need barter as a tool to build his current business, but, has no reason NOT to have it.  After all, he added another piece to the puzzle when he added bartering for personal use. With bartered home care services, a pool remodeling, dining, and “other services you would use anyway,” Kanter says, “it just works real well for me and that’s why I stayed in all these years. The IBE owners “made it pleasurable and very beneficial for me,” he adds.

And, beneficial to his fellow members. Kanter continues to refer IBE services that he has enjoyed using. “I take people to IBE restaurants, and they go back as new customers,” he says. “I’ve referred my plumber, my lawn guy—all kinds of businesses. I’m real happy with my laundry service. They pick up and deliver without extra cost. If somebody is doing a good job, and they’re working with me, I’ll recommend them. It’s the right thing to do.”

In turn, Kanter has seen his referred clients arrive as one-time patients and leave as ongoing clients. “They’ve already been told something good about your practice,” he says. His approach is to figure out the patients’ comprehensive needs. Even if it is an episodic patient, “Once we address that,” says Kanter, “we always do our best to convert the patient to a comprehensive, so they could basically prevent those kinds of problems from happening. Our practice is almost all comprehensive care. It just worked out that way.”

It also worked out to build a loyal staff, some who have been with his practice for 15, 18, and 27 years. “My staff is so wonderful,” says Kanter. “Everybody knows everybody; they know what works; how to make everybody happy. It just makes everything flow. When you have a crew like that, it makes life so easy.”

Bartering makes it easy to reward his staff. On a regular basis, Kanter offers IBE restaurant scrips, Christmas gifts, holiday bonuses and other members’ services to his staff. Unlike some businesses that have dropped health care for their employees, and finding alternative methods to compensate, Kanter doesn’t offer bartering as an option or replacement. He provides health insurance for his employees. He says the dental industry has not been affected by the new laws, as much as the medical community. Still, he has seen unfortunate changes.barter-soars-front

“The way the insurance companies are cutting reimbursement down so low, a lot of times it works out better for me to do a barter patient than an insurance patient,” he says. Some of his patients who barter for their treatment would be unable to get dental care if they could not barter.

Kanter says whether his patients pay with insurance, cash, or IBE barter, it is the conglomeration of everything that makes his practice successful and completes the puzzle.

“I guess if you left out anything, you’d have less of a total picture,” Kanter says. “Then maybe you wouldn’t be able to afford some of those things, because your total picture is less. Like my beautiful airplane. If you add it up, how much cash money I saved just using barter, going out to dinner for a year that would probably cover the airplane maintenance for a year. I didn’t get my airplane through barter, but definitely the total picture of having that extra income and ability from it, allowed me to divert other money toward that hobby.”

IBE Barter Exchange Of Sarasota

In accordance with the IBE Trading By-Laws Rules and Regulations the IBE Members are required to trade 100% up to $2500.00 on any SINGLE transaction. There are times when this may vary (i.e.) when a selling member wishes to earn more IBE$$ on that transaction for whatever their motivation may be (i.e.) saving IBE$$ for large purchases. The ONLY exception to this rule would be when an IBE Selling Member has to purchase large hard goods outside of their existing inventory. This would be a ‘Large New Hard Good’ that would trade usually with a barter/cash blend, ‘noting,’ this would be an exception to the rule and only applies to ‘Large New Hard Good’ items that are not in the Members inventory. The barter/cash blend would be 65% trade 35% cash. The only exception would be IF the Selling & Buying Member agrees to terms that would increase the amount of accepted barter for a transaction like this based on the Selling Members motivation to generate additional IBE$$ for future purchases.

IBE Members also receive 3 to 1 Cash Referral Business from their IBE Barter Community Members. IBE Members that are happy with the services/products they have received from the IBE Barter Members then refer CASH business to them that may be business associates, family members, friends etc. that aren’t IBE members, which in turn helps to BUILD and GROW their Cash Business too!

Build & Grow Your Business

IBE Barter allows airlines and restaurants to fill empty seats, hotels and resorts to fill empty rooms, printers fill press downtime, professionals can fill empty time slots, health care professionals can treat new patients. Business owners and professionals can then take this new found revenue and reduce cash expenses or expand their operations. Businesses across America are taking a serious look at IBE Barter as a way to build their bottom line, and the rapid growth of the barter industry can only mean that business across the country like what today’s IBE Barter Economy has to offer.


We market your business to other exchange member businesses in the online member directory, weekly enews and through our Brokers. Your business gets incremental sales from buyers looking for barter opportunities within the IBE Barter Community.


The number one source of advertising for small businesses is “word of mouth.” If you do a good job for an IBE Member, they will refer their cash-paying friends, customers, family and other businesses to you. Additionally, barter revenue from the incremental sales that we will bring you can be used for radio, television, print, direct mail, outdoor, online campaigns and other types of advertising to attract more cash customers and build your brand.


You can improve cash flow by increasing sales and reducing costs. Participating in the IBE Barter Exchange does both! IBE Barter enables you to pay for the products and services you need with what you have. When you hire a contractor, paint your office, or buy office related services with IBE Barter dollars, you conserve your cash to pay other expenses. And, when you purchase using IBE Barter dollars, you pay for it with revenue from new sales – sales that you probably would never have had. MOVE EXCESS INVENTORY AND FILL IDLE TIME: Every business owner has excess inventory, production, capacity or appointment time. That unscheduled appointment today has zero value tomorrow. When you join the IBE Barter Exchange, we provide you with new business to put your excess to use in profitable ways. We accomplish this by matching your product or service with businesses looking to purchase them on trade. CREAT WHOLESALE BUYING POWER: With IBE Barter, the actual cost of the products you purchase on trade is the wholesale cost of your barter dollars earned. Making sales with built-in profits makes the cost of your purchases more economical on trade. When you join the IBE Barter Exchange, you open the door to a new, cash-free way of handling every day business and personal expenses. IBE BARTER PROVIDES A COMPETITIVE EDGE: The IBE Barter Community will patronize your business over the competition because your barter affiliation is an incentive to do business with you. Barter attracts new customers to your business, without affecting the existing cash sales already being generated by your company.


We eliminate collections. When you make a barter sale to an IBE Barter Member, you process the transaction by calling the IBE Office or online postings to verify that the buyer has the IBE Currency available to pay for their purchase. COLLECT RECEIVABLES: A small business might find it difficult to pay you the cash they owe, but would welcome the opportunity to fulfill their obligation with payment in products or services. IBE Barter Members can then offer these goods and services to other members of the IBE Barter Community for IBE Currency which get deposited to your IBE Barter account for the balance you were owed. Your non-collectable receivable just became revenue that can be spent on a variety of business expenses. EMPLOYEE INCENTIVES: By using,The IBE Barter Community of Healthcare Professionals, you can provide a much appreciated benefit to employees without having to pay cash for it. IBE Barter is also a great way to offer contest prizes, bonuses, wellness programs and tickets – all available to you without using cash, and all based on your cost of the incremental business that we have brought you.

J & R Glass And Mirror Company

Owning a home or business is a huge responsibility.  Every few years different fixtures, flooring and other odds and ends must be replaced.  After all, your home or business is an investment.  One of the major items that should be replaced is glass.  Think of the glass you have in your home…is it energy efficient?  Is your shower enclosure water tight and do you want a more modern look?  Your sliding glass doors are also important, and so are your table tops, glass shelving and glass railings. This is just another area of your life where your IBE dollars can come into play.

Experience and reputation really do matter.  J&R Glass and Mirror in Sarasota is the perfect example.  Roy Schneider, owner and operator, has been in the business for over 33 years.  Before he went out on his own in 1997, he began to see what shoddy work was being performed in our area.  Shortcuts were taken, and safety was sacrificed, so his personal credo became “safety first, beauty second.”  Integrity is first and foremost with J&R Glass and Mirror.

When Roy became an IBE Barter member, the same excellence in standards applied to any Barter job that J&R performed. Roy says that any work that has his name on it will be a perfect  fit, be up to current code and will utilize only the best and safest materials.  This is a man who can’t put his head down at night unless he holds himself and his business up to the toughest standards.  That can be pretty rare these days, that a man will accept nothing less than a perfect job and won’t finish a job unless it is PERFECT.

J&R Glass and Mirror does a myriad of services involving glass.  Some examples are custom mirrored walls, tub and shower enclosures, frameless heavy glass shower enclosures, table tops, counter tops, storefront windows, replacement windows and window repairs.  And that’s not all.  They can put in glass railing systems, sliding glass door repairs, broken window repairs, and more.  J&R Glass has their own team and will only send a team member out to do a job.   If you have a dream of how you want your custom glass to look, they have an artist who does highly skilled etching and carving.

J&R glass has a showroom at 7621 15th St. E., Unit 2E in Sarasota.  Come in and visit and take some time to look around at all the fabulous styles and patterns of glass available.  They carry the very latest in products and design and have a friendly, skilled staff.  Call today with any questions at 941-355-4969 or log onto their website  for more information.  If you can’t come to their showroom, they’ll be glad to come to you.  They want your experience with J&R Glass and Mirror to be an enjoyable one that you’ll want to tell your friends about.

Don’t forget that J&R Glass is a member of IBE Barter.  Those IBE dollars go a long way in affording products and services that can be a burden on your budget. Feel free to call Ron or Mary Unger for their opinion about J&R Glass and Mirror.

Medical – Barter Exchange Services Introducing Dr. Jack Jawitz

Dr. Jack Jawitz is a  certified Internist and Dermatologist, as well as owner of the Bradenton Dermatology and Laser Center.  Dr. Jawitz is an IBE Barter member and is a health practitioner.  Having had personal appointment with Dr. Jawitz, who gave me a cancer screening last year, I can speak from experience when I say he is thorough and enjoys educating his patients about crucial skin issues.  Take the sun, for example.  Dr. Jawitz will tell you just stay away from it.  If you have to be out in the sun, wear a sunscreen of at least 30spf, and re-apply every two hours.

Dr. Jawitz is a board certified Dermatologist as well as Internist but dedicates his endeavors to the practice of dermatology.  He specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of skin disorders.  He also studies the structure and functions of the skin and the relationship between skin pathologies and malfunction of the organs of the body.  Dr. Jawitz also performs the latest cosmetic services, and MOHS surgery.

Being able to use your IBE dollars for important health issues is a bonus.  As the ozone continues to thin out and the sun’s rays become more damaging, dermatologists have noticed an increase in sun-related anomalies in their patient population that directly correlate with sun exposure. Dr. Jawitz will provide you with a full body check for suspicious lesions and tumors.  After sending those to a pathology lab he will report the results to you and suggest further treatment.  Bradenton Dermatolgy

Your dermatologist should have knowledge of basic sciences including microbiology, pathology, biochemistry, physics and physiology.  They must also have a working knowledge of basic surgery, neurology, and endocrinology.  They must be familiar with all the other medical specialties because skin diseases are often associated with internal conditions.

Dr. Jawitz begins your first visit by taking your medical history.  This should the first step of any contact with a doctor or health practitioner.  In order to classify a skin condition, a dermatologist will ask detailed questions on the duration and temporal pattern of skin problems, itching or pain, relations to food intake, sunlight, over-the-counter creams and clothing. When an underlying disease is suspected, a more detailed history of related symptoms might be elicited.

You will be examined under a bright light to review any lesions that might be troublesome.  He will then take a sample for analysis.  A culture or Gram staining of suspected infectious lesions may identify a pathogen and help direct therapy. If the diagnosis is uncertain, or cutaneous malignancy is suspected, a small punch-hole biopsy can be taken under local anesthetic, to be examined by a specialist of histopathology.

Dr. Jawitz is fully certified to perform the above services and give you the knowledge of exactly what condition you have.  This information, when tests come back negative, is a reason to be extremely happy.  I encourage you to visit Dr. Jawitz very soon and put your own mind at rest.   Dr. Jawitz’ Dermatology practice is located at 2919 26th Ave. West, Bradenton, Fl. Call for your appointment today: 914-755-2255.

Medical – Barter Exchange Services The Modern-Day Answer To Hospital Emergency Room Visits…

IBE Barter members have such an array of services and products available to them with “alternative currency”, your IBE dollars.  If you are not aware of some of these services, they are listed under categories on the IBE website.  One great example is the Oaks Medical Plaza and Dr. John K. Head, M.D.  According to the National Med/Network, urgent care is defined as “a medical  facility where ambulatory patients can be treated on a walk-in basis, without an appointment, and receive immediate non-emergent care.”

Urgent care facilities were created in hopes of reserving the emergency room for those with life-threatening illnesses or injuries.

A friend of mine, who is also an IBE member, was recently a patient at the Oaks Medical Plaza, where Dr. Head took care of him.  He was so impressed with the doctor and his care that he inspired me to write this article.  My friend could clearly see the benefits of this kind of care.  He walked in with nasal congestion and a headache, but wanted to be sure he wouldn’t be complicating his symptoms on an airplane the next day, when he was leaving for London.  Dr. Head examined him and prescribed an antibiotic in the event that flying would worsen his symptoms.  He was also given a prescription for cough medicine and felt Dr. Head covered all the bases and possibilities.

There are definitely advantages in going to a place like Oaks Medical Plaza.  You have quicker access for treatment of your non-life threatening illness or injury.  I understand the co-payments are cheaper than treatment co-pays in the hospital emergency rooms.  You don’t need an appointment, and there are extended hours in most urgent care facilities.  They’re open on holidays and weekends, and you can usually find them in residential areas, in strip malls and alongside stores.

If you are new to the area and haven’t chosen a primary care doctor, or if your doctor’s office is not open, a walk-in facility is the answer to your needs.  Dr. Head and his staff have the experience and credentials to give you quality, non-emergent care.

The statistics are fascinating!  Of the100 million people using the ER yearly, as many as 80% qualify as non-emergencies.  There are currently over 8,500 urgent care facilities in the U.S. and that number is increasing by 300 a year.  Walk-in medical services have proven to be the better choice both medically and financially.  It’s important and useful to know that there are alternatives to using the Emergency Room for your health issues.

I highly recommend Dr. John Head, M.D., and the Oaks Medical Plaza.  You will find the Medical Plaza at 308 53rd Ave East, in Bradenton, Fl.  For additional information on hours or directions, call (941) 751-5551.  It’s just another bonus of being an IBE member, that quality; immediate medical services are available without having to go to the Emergency Room at your local hospital.
