Even after writing my September Dividend Income Summary, I still can’t believe that the third quarter of 2015 has come to a close. Holy cow, where has all of the time gone? Just like Lanny, I perform a quarterly goal review to track my progress so I can make any necessary adjustments before it is too late. Let’s take a look at my progress through the first nine months of 2015!
My goodness, we are halfway through 2015 and man has it been a fun ride. The second quarter was a lot of fun and I felt like the market presented some great opportunities for dividend investors to take advantage of, whether the market had a general pullback from fundamentals or due to the most-recent saga in the everlasting Greek saga. With all the purchases we had, I moved that much closer to accomplishing my goals in 2015 and I closed the gap on some of my largest, most difficult goals. Now that the quarter is over, I wanted to take some time to review my progress and see where I stand and if any adjustments need to be made before it is too late.
About two months ago, Lanny wrote about why he aims to save 60% each month. His article got me thinking about saving a large portion of my income and you know what, if his Italian self can do it – I can too! See why I am now also aiming to save 60% of my income each month.
