Lanny’s February Dividend Income Summary

Busy season is two months down and thank God it’s a short month, as these are the dog days of them all.  However, what makes this month fun is that we close out a month of dividend income earlier and start to step into the iconic March dividend income.  Cleveland has been a bit of a whirlwind as of late – it was 75 degrees and now it’s back into the 20’s.  Talk about getting sick with the climate change!  On a stock note – the market, this month, has been up almost 3% in the last 30 days, ending February 24th.  This has definitely sidelined me from making dividend stock purchases, killing me!  Let’s see what February has brought me in regards to dividend income.

Take Risks – Nothing About Your Finances is Permanent

“Nothing is permanent about our behavior patterns except our belief that they are so” – Moshe Feldenkrais

I was a little shocked, but I was able to find a quote that aligns perfectly with the message of this article.  This morning, I felt motivated to write this article because it finally hit me.  If you are unhappy with the status quo of your financial situation or are on the fence about trying a new personal finance strategy, why not take risks and go for gold?
