It’s hard to believe that a few years ago, Ron Bass was working in hospitality management at a New York City hotel. Today, the Brooklyn native is quickly making a name for himself in the fashion and art world. Bass has designed clothing for some of the biggest names in the industry, including Beyonce, Jay Z, and Swizz Beatz. He has also collaborated with well-known brands like Forever 21 and Chevrolet. We had a chance to sit down with this artist and businessman to ask ‘What’s In Your Wallet?’
Cash or plastic?
I prefer plastic. I tend to lose bills when I reach into my pocket for other things like Chapstick or my phone. I also found that by using my card, I am able to keep track of what money is going out and where it’s going.
Simple, stylish, or no wallet at all?
Years ago, my best friend gave me a slim MCM leather wallet that only holds cards. I love it and have been using it since! It fits in my back pocket and leaves no bulge.
The most surprising item in your wallet or backpack?
Baby wipes. Although I don’t have any kids yet, I like to keep my hands clean. So I keep baby wipes handy in my backpack.
The most used item in your wallet or backpack?
That would have to be my business debit card, since I’m frequently using it to purchase supplies, paint, etc.
Any current guilty pleasures?
A movie date for one. I try to go to the movies two to three a month by myself. Weird right? I know.
Biggest financial lesson learned in the past year?
Save, save, save! You never know what the future holds and the importance of building credit now so that you’ll have it when you need it.
