I usually come right out and say that this person is someone I’d hire again anytime for any project. That they’d be foolish to let an opportunity to hire this person slip away.

Hi all, I have the long-term goal of ultimately getting into a good Venture Capital firm at Associate level. I currently work at Amazon , did my undergrad and Masters in Economics at LSE. I have 2 main questions:
1) Is it even possible/feasible to pivot from Amazon to VC given my background?
2) I have the option to internally transfer in Amazon to a product/program manager role or AWS in a start-up Manager role - which of these would be best to maximise my chances of eventually getting into VC?

Need some advice. I am a simple person and have not thought much about some massive or strategic diversification of my net worth. I am 40 yrs old. Net worth of $2.2M. It is simply categorized in three buckets - $1M in 401K, $0.8M in bank and $0.3M in fully paid house. My house and 401K are appreciating at a good rate of 10-15%. Now after joining this app, I am seeing alternatives such as Roth IRA, Index Funds, Kids 529(?), annuity, tax saving strategies…there is so much. Where should I start?
