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! I scored eight hundred+ in total passive dividend Income: $844.93 to be precise, a milestone figure to reach. Passive dividend income hit a record and it was more than 48.5% compared to last year’s Dec quarter and out of park as compared to last Mar, over 110%. That’s awesome and crossing $800 felt great. 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.
