Dividend Income

Financial independence cannot guarantee long term retirement unless the retirement capital generates enough income. Cash flow is more important then assets. I started tracking dividends since January 2015. I am mostly invested in cheap index funds and ETFs, hence dividends are on quarterly basis.

  1. Wow you really increased from 2016 to 2017! Thats awesome to see!

    I just started my own blog about dividend growth investing and my path to financial freedom.

  2. That is really impressive annual growth rate! Investing in index funds also gives you a nice sector diversification.

    1. Thanks DD. Yes I love the diversification. Even a major drop in market I am not too worried :-)

  3. Keep up the good work! You and I seem to be at about the same level of dividend income right now. Slow and steady wins the race as they say! Also, how has traffic been on your site? How long have you been working on this blog? I really like it and will be checking back frequently to follow your progress.

  4. Filling up surveys is another way to earn money online. Filling up market research survey may look like a very boring activity but the opportunities to earn money in this type of work are endless. There are thousands of research groups online, which would like to take your opinion about various things and in that process, pay you for presenting your opinion. For each survey completed, there are certain points or money given out to the users. Once the money-earning limit is hit, the survey team allows the user the opportunity to take the money or exchange the points for a certain amount of money.

    Another great way to earn money online is through blogs. The process of blogging can help users earn lot of money online by putting in creative content in their blogs. There are two ways of going about this blogging activity: one is to create your own blog and write all the content on your own. This is a painful process where you need to do all the hard work to earn money. The second one is to setup a sponsored blog where you write reviews about products for companies wanting to promote their business. These blog sites pay you money for providing favorable opinion about a certain product. This is one of the best income opportunities present online.
