Since I’ve retired from a dayjob I’ve been supporting myself a bit with my writing but primarily through stock and fund investments (the realworld kind, not the Empire Avenue kind). One aspect of owning stock that I hadn’t thought much about before actually owning shares in a company was the board of directors. Now I regularly get literature from the companies I own stock in, discussing their upcoming plans and often, nominations for new members of their boards of directors. As part of this process they disclose the money and incentives that members of the board receive.
And wow, do some of them make a boatload of money. And by boatload, I mean, a really big boat.
So, I just wanted to let it be known that I’m more than willing to join a (reputable) company’s board of directors, if the offer is right.
