For this post today I would like to share with you something personal. Throughout high school I never really exceled when it came to articulating my thoughts into writing format. In fact, I struggled very hard and would even get anxiety to write essays and written response questions. Though I do not know the true reason as to why, I have a good feeling it was due to being self-conscious and the fear of people thinking my ideas were dumb.

This is a little bit of a delayed post so I do apologize guys. This is a company I have been wanting to own for quite some time now and I was just waiting for a good time to pull the trigger, and with recent market events I figure I purchased this solid dividend growth company at a good price. Not only that but this purchase also brings me one step closer to a goal that I have wanted to reach since starting my dividend growth investing journey, which is initiating a DRIP with all the big 6 Canadian Banks.
Before I dive into my dividend income for this month I would like to remind everyone that this is the entire reason why I invest. Of course capital gain is nice, but that’s not the reason why I am putting my money into the market. With the recent decline in oil prices it has left Canada’s economy slightly shaken leaving many investors very anxious. However, I choose to ignore market noise and continue to invest my fresh capital. As Warren Buffet says, “The stock market was designed to transfer money from the active to the patient.” The beauty of dividend growth investing is that you get paid wait. And seeing as how I have no intentions on selling any shares I own, capital gain really doesn’t do a whole heck of a lot for me. In essence, I measure my investing success on the constant increase of my dividend income.
