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 a milestone mark of four digits in total passive dividend Income: $1473.83 to be precise. It was second highest ever and out of park as compared to last Sept. 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 for this year and received total of $11699.46 so far this year: almost close to the target .

Full Disclosure: Long in all above mentioned securities.

      I absolutely agree with you that having the history would be cool. I’d like to do so if I get some more time.

  1. That looks like a great month to me. Your about to meet your goal for the year which is great. I’m excited to see just how good of a year that you end up having. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi More Divs,

      Thank you. It looks like I’ll meet and exceed my target for this year: it will be awesome feat for me to do so. Crossing $1K was a big deal for me but its so many years in making. Guess, making of a cookie takes its own sweet time 🙂

  2. PIM,

    This is just awesome. You are about to blow past your goal and it is only September. Heck, you most likely will have already surpassed this total by the time you read this comment. Seeing results like these are a lot of fun. Keep up the great work.


    1. Hi Bert,

      Ha! I did not notice that: you may be right about that though I’ve not tallied the totals yet: what an amazing feat to accomplish. Appreciate the kind words and congrats on the great work over there as well. It’ll be real fun when we achieve FI and free from 9 to 5 treadmill.
