Its time for me to post dividend income earned from my portfolios: DRIP, HID, & Roth. I enjoy sharing them as these passive dividend income provides me great inspiration and encouragement to keep chugging along and hopefully to the readers.
I scored seven+ hundred in total passive dividend Income: $740.08 to be precise. Passive dividend income was more than 46.9% compared to Jan quarter and out of park as compared to last April, over 140%. That’s awesome and crossing $700 third time felt great. It only shows the power of Dividend Income engine. I’m that much closer to being Financially Independent (FI) and living a life that I want to live and enjoy my freedom.

I like to own securities of Blue chip Aristocrats (companies with 25+ yrs of growing earnings) and Dividend Champions. Once the earned passive dividend income covers all my expenses, I will own my time as well.
I’d setup a goal of earning $7500.00 in total passive dividend income this year and so far have received $2823.13. The month of April was great for me and put me over $700 that I’m glad to share.
Full Disclosure: Long in all above mentioned securities.
How did your Dividend Income come along this month of April?
