Dividend Income Update – Apr 2014

Its time for me to post dividend income earned from all of my 3 portfolios: DRIP, HID1 and HID2.

Wow, I had triple digit total Dividend Income: $149.10 to be precise and that too 2nd consecutive month of triple digit dividend income. As compared to last year’s, it was almost 390.52% more. That’s awesome and giddy, my friends. 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, be independent and not have to rely on someone else’s bread crumbs.

I want to own securities of Blue chip Aristocrats (companies with 25+ yrs of growing dividends) and once the earned passive dividend income covers all my expenses, I will own my time as well like a free bird 🙂 Think about it: you can travel around world exploring beautiful exotic culture or even explore blue lagoons and white beaches, play golf 😉 or simply relax and have a power to make a difference in someone’s life and do charities.

    1. Hi Dividend Hawk,

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Appreciate it!

      Yes, this April month was little crazy in terms of dividend income and I’m blessed to have it. I still remember that first tiny dividend check and frankly, it was a bit disappointing at that time. But, once the snowball starts moving, it’s effect is just magical 🙂

      Best wishes,

  1. Hi PIM,

    Congratulations on the triple digits! What a great milestone to reach.

    390% increase YOY is not too shabby either! 🙂

    Those Blue lagoons, white beaches and golf courses will be calling your name if you continue in this fashion.

    I hope you have an equally impressive May!

    All the best

    1. Hi Jason,

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Appreciate your support and wishes. You also had a great April. Congrats to you as well.

      I have also 12 Yrs goal of FI as yours and your dividend income provides an inspiration for my passive dividend growth.

      Best wishes.

    1. Hi Dividend SWAN,

      I’m glad to hear that you like my strategy of multiple portfolios: one of the important goal of having different portfolios is to see how different types of investments perform over a long-term basis.

      There is no better way than to actually invest, see them grow every month on this blog and therefore, they can show the usefulness and potential of earning passive income via these strategies and hopefully some inspiration 🙂

      I just went to your blog and saw you almost earned $150.62. That’s awesome and congrats!

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

      Best wishes.
