Goal Accomplished – $3,250 in Annual Dividend Income!

I threw a teaser in my last purchase article by mentioning that there was something else that I wanted to share with the community.  Well, back when I was setting my goals for 2016, I pushed myself to achieve at least $3,250 in annual dividend income.  You guessed it….my last purchase of Realty income pushed me over this mark and my forward dividend income total now sits at $3,265.  Now, I’ll summarize how I was able to knock this goal out with just under two months to spare in 2016.

Bert’s Q2 2016 Goals Review

I know I said it in my June Dividend income article as well. But still….HOLY COW, I can’t believe the year is halfway over.  This quarter will always hold a special place in my heart though considering I got married in May.  Can’t believe that was a month ago too. WOW!  After the quarter is over, we like to take some time here and check up on our 2016 goals to check our progress and see if we need to make any necessary adjustments on the fly.   With six months remaining, there is still plenty of time to steer ourselves back onto the road if we have started wandering off.
