4. Consider the long term
Don’t invest in something if you don’t think you’ll be comfortable with it for a long time. Avoid “get rich quick” investment opportunities and look for long-term value in your investments. Additionally, long-term investing allows you to save a little money on taxes. The capital gains you make on your investments are usually taxed in most countries. You can reduce the amount of taxes you have to pay on any gains you make in your investments by carefully planning and holding them for a long time.
