Monthly Dividend Income – July 2017

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

I crossed 4 digit mark in total passive dividend income: $1267.03 to be precise. It was little over June month but out of park as compared to last July. 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 and enjoy my freedom.

I’d setup a goal of earning $12000.00 in total passive dividend income this year and received total of $9167.40.

Full Disclosure: Long in all above mentioned securities.

How did your Dividend Income come along this month of July?

Thanks for reading.

      Ha! Nothing to be jealous of 🙂 you are on your way soon. Happy to have a 4 digit passive income last month. I need to step up the gas as well: have not done much shopping in last several months.

    1. Hi InvestmentHunting,

      Yeah. Snowball is definitely rolling down, however, I need to pull trigger on some of the buys. With bull market into 9th year, I’m keeping my fingers crossed, even correction has not occurred in so many years, make me nervous.
