Dividend Income Update – June 2014

Its time for me to post dividend income earned from my portfolios: DRIP, HID1 and HID2. I enjoy posting them as these passive dividend income provides me great inspiration and encouragement to keep chugging along and hopefully to the readers.

Wow, I received triple digit total dividends this month of June: $164.70 to be precise. This is 4th time of triple digit dividend income this year. As compared to last year’s, it was almost 667.30% more. That’s awesome, my friends. It only shows the power of Dividend Income engine. I’m that much closer to being Financially Independent (FI), live a life that I want to live, be independent and not have to depend on someone else or social security, if it’s even there.

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’ll 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.

      Yeah! those will be fantastic to visit once in a while 🙂

      I’m confident you will achieve your goal, it takes a steady drumbeat of rolling dividends to become a beautiful stream 😉

  2. That’s a great month of dividend income. I am hoping to get up to the triple digits soon but still have a lot of work ahead of me. I can picture the white beaches and coronas right now!!!

    1. Hi DM,

      Thanks for stopping by and support.

      It takes a while to get to triple digit passive dividend income but I’m sure, you’ll achieve soon! Last year, I had triple digit only once in Dec, while, this year, its 4th time and in fact, my total dividends this year has already passed last year’s total. Steadily rolling dividends become a powerful force that you’ll soon enjoy! Keep it going.

      Haha! I love that: beaches and coronas 🙂

      Good weekend.

      Best wishes.

    1. Hi Dividend SWAN,

      That’ll be awesome! I’m looking forward to it. You are doing great over there with $240+.

      Thanks for your nice words and support. It reinforces what we all are doing. Ultimately goal is to earn enough passive Dividend Income to be FI.

      Good weekend.

    1. Hi Matty,

      Sure. You will hit that triple digits. Just, keep planting seeds of small investments here and there and in due time, they’ll start throwing ever increasing dividend streams. Even a big tree grows from a small seedling.

      Thanks for stopping by!

      Best luck in your journey!
