Access to Finance - The Biggest Challenge in Converting The Intangible Into Tangible
To be successful can mean many things.
For some, it is climbing the corporate ladder within a large multinational organisation to achieve high-levels of wealth and living standards. For others, it is starting their own business from the ground up and seeing their family’s name above a door on a high street shop or business. For a young person looking to accumulate wealth within a farm business from a standing start, then success is about growing net worth in terms of land and livestock while maximising profit through operational excellence.
What is the common denominator between these three examples of success? It is the successful conversion of ‘intangible assets’ into ‘tangible assets’. The conversion of ambition into wealth. The conversion of determination into a profitable business.
