October 2014 Dividend

Now for the time I unveil the amount of dividend income I received for this month, and I must say that I am very pleased with the way it has turned out. As unpredictable as the market is, there is one thing that stays constant and it is the dividends that roll in. The path towards financial freedom cannot be paved without these dividends.

Asset Assessment

Long time no post! With the recent collapse in my relationship things in life have been very hectic these past couple of weeks. Unfortunately I haven’t had a whole lot of time to pay attention to this blog, my portfolio, nor Mr. Market.
