Its time for me to post dividend income earned from my portfolios: DRIP, HID1, HID2, & 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.
Wow! I scored a triple hundred in total passive dividend Income: $314.87 to be precise. This month, my dividend income was more than 44.27% compared to last May and out of park as compared to last August, over 300%. That’s awesome as my August month has always been slow in last many years and crossing $300 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.

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 will own my time as well and truly free from 9 to 5 tread mill.
I’d setup a goal of earning $3500.00 in total passive dividend income for this year and have received total of $2265.60, 64.73% of target. I’m hoping my passive dividend income for next month would be blockbuster and cover some more ground to achieve target.
My portfolio value recently crossed $90K last month and total count of securities along with ETFs is getting closer to 50 right now.
Full Disclosure: Long in all above mentioned securities.
How did your Dividend Income come along in month of August. Closing in to target?
