This is the last in the 8 forms of capital series on applying permaculture principals to business cultivation. The word I kept alluding to during the entire series was “stacking”, it is a principle explained by Bill Mollison in his 34 principles of design as follows…
“Stacking: Multilevel functions for single element (stacking functions). Multilevel garden design, i.e., trellising, forest garden, vines, groundcovers, etc.”
Many would say that sure doesn’t sound like a business concept unless you are a farmer, however, business owners especially small business owners need to be experts at stacking. When you are a one man show and you do content production, editing, graphics, publishing, promotion, tech support and email responses you are stacking functions. Make sense?
During the 8 levels of capital series we kept finding overlaps, why, because capital has functions that can be stacked as well and may of those stackings overlap.
