Bert’s November 2017 Dividend Income Report

Thanksgiving….done.  Black Friday and Cyber Monday have officially passed and the damage was not too significant.  I sit here today in disbelief thinking that November is already over and 2018 is rapidly approaching.  Time flies and it seems to only go by faster and faster with age.   Now that the calendar has turned and we have entered THE BEST dividend income month of the year.  But before we start counting down the days until we received our mutual fund distributions, I thought it would be a good idea to take a look and see how I performed in November.  Here is my November Dividend Income Report.

Bert’s May Dividend Income Summary

My crazy month has finally come to an end.  We entered the month in the middle of an intense housing search and left with an accepted offer.  Still can’t believe we are going to be first time homeowners!  My wife and I celebrated our one year anniversary Memorial Day Weekend as well.  The beauty of it all is that while all the noise of my personal life is rolling along, my dividend stocks are quietly doing their work in the background.  This is one of my favorite articles to write each month, where I review my monthly dividend income total, compare the results to the earlier period, and check my progress as I embark on this journey of financial freedom.   Now it is time to dive into detail.  Check out my May dividend income summary!
