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.
Wow! what a month. I scored four hundred+ in total passive dividend Income: $417.73 to be precise, this is my first time crossing $400.00 milestone figure this year. Passive dividend income hit a record last month and it was more than 125% compared to last year’s Sept quarter. Also, this month alone, my passive income was more than whole of 2013. 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’d setup a goal of earning $3500.00 in total passive dividend income at the beginning of this year and received $2683.33 so far. I’ve covered 76.66% of the target and close to target. The month of Sept was a big one for me and most of DGI bloggers as well. It covered some ground in the shortfall of last low month, that I’m glad to take. However, there is lot more ground to cover to achieve a challenging target for this year.
Full Disclosure: Long in all above mentioned securities.
