^ I know the nuances are infinite ($500.00 vs $100K of debt, proposed business, time to profitability, etc.) and like most other questions in permaculture ..."it depends"... but I'm curious in a general sense.
I'm curious on how folks feel about the relationship between past debt (student and other) and the start-up of a new "regenerative enterprise". I'd be interested to hear from those on both sides... people who have focused on minimizing debt before beginning a business or those who jumped right into their venture without the reduction of prior debt, focusing on elimination later as the business matures and provides a viable income..... thoughts? Basically how much of a barrier do you see these fiscal obligations as?
