9 Forms Of Capital For Entrepreneurs
For detailed notes and links to resources mentioned in this video, visit

When I first started our financial firm back in October of ’09, one of the biggest concerns that we originally had was how we were going to compete against other guys that had raised tens of millions of dollars. All we started off with was my money. We even lost several agents. They came to me and said, “Pat, you’re going to go out of business. Everyone is going to be affected by this. You’re making a big mistake. You shouldn’t be doing this. It’s going to hurt a lot of people.” But I stuck with it because I recognized that there are many forms of capital, and that financial capital isn’t the most important type.

In this video I get into nine different forms of capital, and how they can help you as an entrepreneur.

#1: Financial Capital – 0:59

#2: Spiritual Capital – 1:37

#3: Land Capital – 2:16

#4: Social Capital – 3:18

#5: Cultural Capital – 4:05

#6: Experiential Capital – 5:23

#7: Intellectual Capital – 6:04

#8: Natural Capital – 6:23

#9: Material Capital – 6:34

The Easiest Type of Capital to Get – 11:57

    Hi Patrick, my name is Maria Jones, I am a part time entrepreneur as per one of your videos. I would like to know if you have done a breakdown video of each of the 9 capitals you described in this video so i can have a better understanding of where i fit in. Or basically, I am a creative designer of various crafts. I sew, make party supplies and I have recently started making boxes out of wood. I am interested in many other crafts, and definitely interested in entrepreneurship. I’m just not sure where to aim my focus or if i really need to yet.
