July is done and this amazing summer continues! It has been a busy third quarter for us here, and so many bloggers out there, as the market continues to present buying opportunities. Lanny has initiated positions in companies like BBBY, ITW, and WRK and added to his position in KHC while Bert followed suit and initiated positions in ITW and WRK. Our inspiration to push ourselves to invest every dollar we can comes from ALL OF YOU in the blogging community. Each month, we read your income summaries and see how hard you are working to grow your income and relentlessly pursuing financial freedom. For those of you that are new followers, each month, we gather as many dividend income summaries from the community to share the results with all of you.

Man oh man. That is a lot of money for an “off month.” Everyone, think about it. 42 people earned over $25k in dividend income in the slowest dividend paying month of the quarter. THINK ABOUT IT! This year continues to roll and all of us continue to make impressive strides. We’ve found as many ways to save and as many ways to side hustle as possible. Truly, let’s all continue to make EVERY DOLLAR COUNT here. Let’s roll up our sleeves and hit the pavement hard for the rest of 2018. We know you have a lot left in the tank, so LETS JUST GO FOR IT!
Lanny and Bert, the Dividend Diplomats
