Its time for me to post dividend income earned from my portfolios: DRIP, DIP, & RothI enjoy sharing them as these passive dividend income provides me great inspiration and encouragement to keep chugging along and hopefully to the readers.

I crossed a milestone mark of four digits in total passive dividend Income: $1477.35 to be precise. It was second highest ever and out of park as compared to last Sept. That’s awesome. 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’d setup a goal of earning $12000.00 in total passive dividend income for this year and received total of $11702.98 so far this year: almost close to the target .

Full Disclosure: Long in all above mentioned securities.
