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 close to four digit in total passive dividend Income: $843.71 to be precise. Though, it was less than September quarter due to BBL not distributing dividend this quarter however out of park as compared to last Dec, over 48%. 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 want 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’ll own my time as well and truly free from 9 to 5 tread mill.
I’d setup a goal of earning $7500.00 in total passive dividend income for this year and received total of $9810.71. Although, month of Dec fell short of my expectations of crossing four digit figure, however, the fact that I achieved my target for this year, gives me an immense satisfaction and I’m sure for all DGI bloggers and investors.
Full Disclosure: Long in all above mentioned securities.
