Welcome to the Wonderful World of Dividend Investing

“Compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world. He who understands it, earns it … he who doesn’t … pays it.”
― Albert Einstein

The power of dividend investing is remarkable, as we will get into going forward with this blog.  A blog isn’t a blog until you have the first big “Welcome” post. Therefore, with that being said – Welcome to our Dividend Diplomat story.  We are two young mid-20’s 30’s, dividend hungry investors who are working to break free from the chains of the 9-5 or in our CPA terms – 7-9 days of working for “the man”.  We are using dividend investing to reach Financial Freedom.

Instead, we are putting our hard/slave earned dollars to work by purchasing stock in strong companies.  Strong companies that show history of paying dividends and increasing those wonderful chips annually.  We are two young gunners that are relentless in our pursuit of undervalued investments.  The goal is to build a dividend income stream large enough to sustain our quality of life and pursue the things that we truly enjoy – sounds crazy, right?

See our Dividend Investing Portfolios.

We believe that investing in these companies will build a self-sustaining engine to allow us to maximize our time being spent doing what we love. Each post will take you through our thought process and our journey towards reaching this goal. While dividend investing stocks are the main focus, we will also enlighten you on ways to save money by using Financial Freedom Products.  We will teach you the benefits to side hustle and even Investing 101 topics.  The question I have is – Are you ready?  Are you buckled up?
