Monthly Dividend Income – September 2016

Its time for me to post dividend income earned from my portfolios: DRIP, HID & 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 scored close to four digit in total passive dividend Income: $931.36 to be precise. Though, it was more than June quarter due to BBL distributing dividend this quarter and out of park as compared to last Sep, over 125%. 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 want to own securities of Blue chip Aristocrats (companies with 25+ yrs of growing earnings) and Dividend Champions. Once the earned passive dividend income covers all my expenses, I’ll own my time as well and truly free from 9 to 5 tread mill.

I’d setup a goal of earning $7500.00 in total passive dividend income for this year and received total of $7181.19. This month of September was superb as it came close to four digit number and I’m sure for all DGI bloggers and investors.

Full Disclosure: Long in all above mentioned securities.

How was your Dividend Income in month of September.

    1. Hi Dividendandhobbies,

      Absolutely, can’t wait to see Dec if it will hit $1000 marker again. Crossing 4 digit number is always a big deal for me and I’m sure for all.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

    1. Hi InvestmentHunting,

      Yeah, I was so close to hit $1000. The goal of $7500 looks like within sight and most likley happen next month. Keep up your options income over there.

  1. Fantastic month — you’re so close to collecting $1,000 in a month! And it looks like you’re easily going to make your goal of collecting $7,500 this year…

    Thanks for sharing and keep up the good work!

    Cheers

    1. Hi DivGro,

      Thanks for nice words. So close yet so far 🙂 Looks like I’ll hit my goal of this year next month with Nov and Dec as bonus, we’ll see. Worked so hard to come to this position.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  2. Another super solid passive income report that continues to inspire me along my own journey. You will surely exceed your passive income goal for 2016. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi DivHut,

      I’m glad that its inspiring you and frankly, reading these reports keep inspiring me. Congrats on your superb income over there, great work.

      Thanks for stopping by as always and commenting!

  3. Nearing the $1,000 in a month. That has to feel pretty amazing. I was just thinking that $1,000 in a month would be just about like adding the income from a full-time minimum wage job–without having to lift a finger. That’s a pretty amazing concept.

    1. Hi cp913,

      Absolutely, its amazing concept where the money keeps rolling w/o lifting a finger 🙂 Its hard work in the beginning and you can enjoy the fruits of that later. Compounding does rest of the work for us. Great thought right there! its like full-time min wage job, what a miracle.

    1. Hi GoGoAssets,

      Thank you. I’d a fantastic month of Sept and feels amazing to be close to 4-digit figure. Goal is to generate enough income to live a FI life.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  4. Congrats, awesome month! Looking at your previous months income, your trajectory seems like it’ll put you over $1000/month within a few months!

    1. Hi MrSLM,

      Appreciate the kind words. I crossed $1K one time this year, however, I still do not have consistent $1K marker every month, of-course, it will be awesome to have one!
