Doing nothing is when the risk is highest

Parents often tell us that venture capital investment is very dangerous and there is a risk of bankruptcy. They use their failure experience to advise you not to invest lightly in starting a business, as long as you work hard, so that you only dare to put money in bank fixed deposits. Only dare to buy savings insurance, do nothing at the age when you should invest and manage money most, or make a wrong decision. At first glance, there is no loss. In fact, doing nothing is the most risky time, because your 1 million (no more investment), 35 years later it will be 14.78 million (calculated with 8% compound interest), if you do nothing, so 1 million is still 1 million, and it may be because of price inflation that 1 million is only 800,000 purchasing power.
It is not difficult to invest 8% in the long term. Taking Yuanta ETF 0050 as an example, the 15-year annualized rate of return is about 8% - 11%.
