Guess where my original matchstick is?  (and an update on the #onematchstick  story)
Hi! I'm Telana Simpson, and I'm trading one matchstick for offices. I started this project in 2006, and will be trading items up until I get offices, for me and for some startup entrepreneurs. Do you want a lifestyle makeover, my latest item up for trade? Contact me to make your offer.

    I’m trading one matchstick up for an office. Or a whole suite of offices, even a whole building! How it working is I’m making a line of trades up each time, until I get offices! And I'll go anywhere in South Africa to make the trade. Then what I’d like to do is use part of those offices to help fellow start-up entrepreneurs get their enterprises off the ground.
