Monday, September 1, 2014
August has ended and it is time to tally up the dividends received for this month. I am anticipating I will likely fall short of my goal this year in total dividends of $2700. This is mainly because my buying has been put on hold for a couple months because of the cost of school and books these days. I hope to be more active with acquiring income producing assets in the near future, but have been kind of stuck lately. I will at least get rid of my car payments altogether in September and own it. That eliminates about $210 a month out of the expense category. The nice thing about this strategy is most of my dividend stocks are being reinvested in additional shares. The portfolio continues to chug along with higher totals and share amounts without me at times. Once it is set up compounding can really take effect and if you are in a position to add more fresh capital you can reach Financial Independence that much faster. I encourage everyone to keep on going down this path. I hope we all get there and achieve our goals.
