Looking back, July was a pretty monumental month for me. My daughter turned four months old, went to an in home daycare for the first time, Cleveland hosted the MLB All Star Game, and it was my birthday! We talk about milestones on this website a lot. Although it wasn’t an investing milestone, my birthday did represent another milestone that I won’t talk about. But I am learning quickly that time does fly and things can happen with a blink of an eye. That’s why today, I am going to reflect on the dividend income received last month. Here is my July dividend income summary!
June was an odd month for many reasons. One will become apparent later in the article. The other reason…it flew by. In the blink of an eye, it’s July. Lanny continues to do amazing things on his financial front and I’m doing my best to follow suit. June had some nice progress. Let’s review my June Dividend Income Summary.
Another month towards financial freedom. Can you taste it? I know I am starting to. However, though sweet the taste this is, it’ll be very “sweet” once the dividend income trumps all expenses in a given month. We are not quite there yet, but in time, this will happen. Proof has been in the pudding, as you’ve seen throughout the years of writing articles, and May is no different.
Man the year is flying by! I can’t believe it is almost June and the fact that my daughter is now two months old! As you know, each month is an exciting new chapter in the story of dividend increases. And we summarize and discuss it here on our website. June is going to be a fun month, as there are a lot of names that are expected to announce an increase. Let’s start the process of reviewing and predicting the expected dividend increases in June!
Stress, the number one killer in the world, folks. Though stress may not be stated as the cause of death, stress is linked to the TOP SIX causes of death. Heart attack, stroke, suicide, cancer, lung ailments and accidents. I wanted to dive into the main flows of stress and how the wonderful world of Dividend Investing is the best prescription to reduce those symptoms. As the saying goes, “A dividend per day, keeps the doctor away”.
We know what time it is. This is one of the best months to be a dividend investor, as we wrap up a quarter-end. The market finished off an impressive note, closing up 13% for the year, thus far. The weather is finally warming up, as I believe we reached 60 degrees one day or two in the month. This was a fantastic month of investing and earning dividends, which truly shows the power of time and consistency pushes you forward.
