Making the invisible visible, mapping out capital

Human Capital–ex. Getting out of college,
Social capital—not only who you know, but WHO knows YOU
Cultural capital-how you navigate different cultural circles. How well and effectively you actually function in different environs. Some people cannot function in their own environment.

H + S+C (there will be areas where they connection, of possibly stand on their own)
Invisible Capital—family, body, community. Networks, skills, experiences, and our knowledge(wild card, other resources)

Finding inv. Capital for a greater end. Mapping out basic things that universally represent someone’s inv. Cap.

Ends for cross pollination
