Hello Everyone! This year is moving by really fast. We are already in early August and I start my capstone class for my MBA in a few weeks. One class in the fall and one in the winter and then I am finished. The costs of this degree is terrible for saving and investing purposes. It also does not come with a guaranteed job and salary. This makes it hard, but I hope it helps me in the future.

Hello Everyone! I made it through my summer class and am down to my final two courses for my MBA degree. I have a break from school until the end of August which is good. My dividend income may start decreasing a bit due to sales I made to try and reduce my debt levels from ever increasing tuition expenses. June was a pretty good month though for income. I have been trying to build monthly bond fund interest income up in my work 403b account at the same time as keeping track of this individual brokerage account here.

The month of May flew by pretty quickly as I am in an accelerated MBA course this summer that ends in about 10 days. It has been a busy semester with a lot of long papers to write. My bday was in May and I turned 33. I am trying to pay off credit card debt from school with selling as little in income generating securities as possible. I like to think I am making progress to covering all my expenses every year and can retire several years early then the traditional suggestions.

Hello everyone! April was a busy month for winter classes ending and continuing to work full time while completing my MBA. I ended up selling my shares in WMT after I received this dividend in order to help pay for high interest school debt and classes. I also made a couple purchases in KDP at attractive prices and think there is value in the stock in the future.

Another month has passed and the weather should be warming up soon, but the last couple days it was still snowing and icy here. Winter seems to be longer and longer every year and the weather never seems to warm up like I would like it to. The dividend income heated up and allowed me to hit over $400 for the first time in this account this month as the quarter came to a close.

We made it into March, but the weather still thinks it should be as cold as it is in the middle of the winter. The dividends are one of a few positive things to look forward to among the gloomy days of work, school, snow, and frozen conditions.
