What's The Value?

In the for-profit world, you make shoes, someone wants to buy them for a certain amount, that’s their value.

You make enough of them, you find enough people who want to buy them, you make money.

Sure, there’s more complex calculations, like future need, that go into the perceived “value” of a product (or a company); and there’s issues of finding your market and making sure your message is getting out – but basically, if the product is valued by the market, you’re a going concern, as the phrase goes.

There’s a lot more going on in the nonprofit world around economic viability and value.
