I suppose it might come across as a bit odd to refer to parked capital growing too slowly because “parked” otherwise implies that it’s money just sitting somewhere and not growing at all since it’s not being put to work in any way. This is just one of those epitomes of how mystified the financial sector is though.
It’s referred to as parked capital and subsequently “given the ability to grow” as a means through which to suggest that it’s being wasted just sitting around in something like a 0% interest account. So it’s “growing at a rate of zero.” This opens up the door to the genius behind the rather polarising wealth transfer mechanisms of the financial sector, which is the existence of negative value as a representation of debt or credit.
This is not a lesson in economics though, but rather a post about what you should rather do with some money that might be sitting around doing nothing at all. It was perhaps pertinent to touch-on the associated principles of economics so as to provide the much-needed clarity to back-up the need to put your money to work. If your money is just sitting somewhere representative of a mattress in which you’ve stashed it, it’s doing nothing but losing value in actual fact, due to the effects of inflation amongst other economic mechanisms which have been designed to perpetuate the system of mass servitude.
Anyway, so you have some money lying around. What to do with it if you want a faster growth rate?
Investment Risk Segmentation
Who said you have to be super-loaded in order to operate like the venture capitalists do? They usually don’t even invest money that belongs to them in its entirety in any case, so you can definitely take a leaf out of their books.
What you shouldn’t do though is take the advice of your bank. Banks are only in the market to enrich themselves, so nothing they suggest to the consumers they “serve” is designed to enrich the consumer. You get the scraps from them.
So what you should do is segment your risk in the best way possible, which means going the route of something like backing crowd-funded start-ups. If you’re the one with the idea then your investment will go into the marketing of your own crowd-funding campaign, which suggests that the actual capital to get the start-up going will come from the various micro-funders who chip in with their micro investments.
The idea actually came to me when a fellow business owner in our network asked us all about some possible corporate gift basket ideas to hand out to his top-performing CFD traders who formed part of his private trading club. The point is you can put your money to work in various different industries which in effect have you investing in start-ups or existing operations that give people hungry for opportunities a chance to put their talents to work, with the suggestion being that all they really needed to succeed was some capital.
