Hello everyone! Bert and I are staring at the finish line of our busy season right now, but we are still trying to pump out articles when we can. What better things that get us pumped up then hitting milestones with our investing that we do. We know how excited each and everyone one of us gets when we hit a new milestone. However, I don’t think anyone has really stopped to think and has said – being a dividend investor brings a plentiful milestones along the way. Check out what I’m talking about.

That’s right I am back at it again folks! Just when you thought that everything can be strategized and plotted out on a map, until you come to this site and realize – you can go deeper, simpler, easier and automatic. I am trying to make this investing journey an automated process as much as possible, as then you can allow yourself to focus on going forward, the everyday variables, planning further with the future and enjoying more of the moment now.
Just when I thought I was coming down with a great system, I realized that I still needed to make contributions into my IRA account for the 2016 year. I still actually am quite a bit away from maxing out the year, but with this purchase, I definitely reached closer to the goal. I love banking and truly am passionate about the moves being made in the industry. I know Bert knows all about this company, and I’m sure the community is starting to also learn a little bit more, hopefully! A few days ago I was able to make a stock purchase back into a community bank stock that I own!
Student Loans….a topic that almost everyone can relate to and almost every person in the personal finance community curse. We’ve all read the reports and the numbers are staggering: total student loans are over $1 trillion dollars here in the US and the average graduate is leaving school with an average of $37,712 (Source: Student Loan Hero). My goal today is to discuss my family’s student loan situation, some of the tough discussions we had before incurring the student loans, and then to cap it off, my plan to pay off our debt as early as possible.
Wow… October is over, isn’t it? World Series baseball has SPIKED and our beloved Cleveland Indians are making some history vs. the Cubs. What a great way to end October and intro to November! The cold and warm weather also keep battling on who is getting the last laugh, as it has swung from 75 to 50 back to 75 a few times over the last week. However, we all know that the cold always wins towards the end of the year here in Ohio! Enough about baseball and weather, you are here for dividends, so let’s see what I was able to rake in for the month in the dividend income investing world!
We’ve closed the chapter on yet another month of 2016. Time moves so fast…it is unreal. It seems like just yesterday I was typing up my July dividend income summary and feeling excited for what was in store for me in August (probably because we went on our honeymoon!). I received my last dividend of the month a few days ago, so it is finally time to once again share my results and track my progress as I race towards completing my 2016 goals. With that being said, here it is, my August Dividend Income Summary!
