During my early education years, I earned a Masters of Business Administration from top ranked University. When I entered this institution, I was delighted to have such an opportunity to attend a top 20 Business School. My education here set the stage for a very rewarding career that has fulfilled my hopes of achieving lifelong success. In fact, I probably would not be in this same place without it. I encourage all young persons to pursue higher education that develops your skills and knowledge for success.
This achievement banter was not why I decided to write about my education today. I was reminded of something a professor discussed during an early class in my first year. While discussing the expectation of a career in business, this professor stated something I have always remembered and passed on to others. It was something like this: the first thing you should do when you land your first job is to start a “kiss my ass” fund because one day you will have to tell your employer to kiss my ass. This is the ideology of the classic cold corporate world of being pushed beyond your limits or where you draw the line. While the statement is over dramatic, it has an inherent meaning and purpose – be prepared.
Today, I think of this idea as one of those buckets we should be working to fill. To prepare for your later years, you always should diversify your savings. You obviously want an emergency cash account for unforeseen events. Then, you want to take care of your retirement through 401 and other type of retirement plans as the 40 year company pension plan doesn’t exist today. Some may invest in real estate or businesses as a diversification of investments. Then, where does the “kiss my ass” fund fit in with your personal planning?
I use the ole kiss my ass fund as my financial independence tool. This is where I invest using income strategies such as the covered call strategy and other monthly income opportunities. I sell call options on the stock until it is called away. Finally, I also collect dividends while I own the stock shares. In each of the positions, I am earning income! I also invest in CEFs that pay monthly distribution because I can diversify across numerous asset classes. And, I have a higher risk option spread account to play poker with through fast moving swing trades.
Of course you know where the cash goes from these income strategies – into my “kiss my ass” fund. Why? Because one day I will need the income generated from the “kiss my ass” fund to live the life I envisioned long ago! And to think – it all started from that one day in class that had a lasting impact on my life and I hope now your life too.
