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.
I scored a double hundred plus in total passive dividend Income: $269.39 to be precise, this was 9th time of receiving triple digit dividend income this year and first time crossing $250.00 milestone figure. This month alone, my dividend income was more than 67.99% compared to full last year’s. 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, be independent and not have to rely on someone else. Isn’t that a powerful motivator!

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 $1500.00 in total passive dividend income at the beginning of this year and received $1880.57, glad to be surpassing my target , though, I started out with a small base. So, we will see next year how the growth turns out.
Full Disclosure: Long in all above mentioned securities.
