Timebank Hobby & Non-commercial Skills

Timebanks operate within a capitalist democracy, so we all need to keep our day job.  We want people to share their skills joyfully, and that may be harder to do when sharing a commercial skill and receiving time instead of money.  If you feel frustrated or lacking when you get paid in time instead of money, rethink the skills that you’re timebanking.  Timebankers who want to showcase an unusual talent, consider offering an introductory service. For example, one member offers a 1-card reading (check our divinity category) through the timebank; if you want a full reading, she’ll direct you to her commercial website.

We each have skills beyond those that earn us dollars. If you earn a living as a space planner, then consider timebanking some skill other than space planning. If you fix bicycles for a living, you might consider timebanking advice on bike buying advice.
