Today we continue an 8 part series on applying permaculture principals to your business based on the article 8 Forms of Capital by Appleseed Permaculture.
In part three we discuss the concept of Financial Capital, from the article posted at Appleseed Permaculture
We are most familiar with financial capital: Money, currencies, securities and other instruments of the global financial system. The current global society focuses enormous amounts of attention on financial capital.
It is our primary tool for exchanging goods and services with other humans. It can be a powerful tool for oppression, or, (potentially) liberation.
In our businesses we can look at financial capital in a variety of ways,
1. Our cash on hand and cash flow
2. Forecasted future revenue
3. Convertible holdings by the business that are liquid
4. The concept of “potential and kinetic” income
While financial capital is the easiest one to understand and the most simplistic, we can still learn much by looking at the business aspects via a “permaculture” lens. Join me today as we take these concepts and examine them at a deeper level.
