      It was fantastic to have crossed the target last year and this year, I’ve setup another ambitious target for this year and we will see if I’m able to achieve it.

    1. Hi Doug,

      Thanks for the kind words. It was great to have crossed the target. I’ve made several changes this year: primarily, I’ve consolidated DRIP account into DIP account and we will see how this impact overall passive income.
