Compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world. He who understands it, earns it . He who doesn't, pays it.

February 2017 Dividends, and Dividend Hikes

For anyone else who likes to supplement their income with the help of dividends, I’m sure we can all agree collecting money you didn’t have to work for is very satisfying. What makes this passive income even more satisfying is knowing the longer you keep reinvesting your dividends the more it will grow. Not only with the income itself grow but the rate at which it grows will speed up as well. My investing strategy really hasn’t changed from 4 years ago, when I bought my first stock from a dividends growth company. And as I keep reinvesting my returns I am starting to see my little money snowball evolve into something that can put a significant dent to my monthly expenses.

July Dividends 2016

Hope all is well everyone, and you guys are having a good summer. I know for me I have been spending a good chunk of my free (doesn’t feel so feel these days) time with my girlfriend and enjoying the outdoors while sharing a hobby that we can both enjoy which is fishing. Like last month I haven’t really focused too much into putting cash into the market other than the dividends which I receive, which of course is still a good help during times when freed up capital is tight.

Much Over-Due Update and April 2016 Dividends

Hello friends! Hope everyone is having a good year so far, with the downturn of oil and economic restlessness I’m sure there are many of you who had trails and challenges to face and overcome. For those who do follow this blog more consistently I’m sure you noticed I haven’t be really updating my portfolio nor have I been keeping up with my dividends/assets as well as I normally do. Well to say the least it has been an extremely hectic past 2 months, both with equal amounts of ups and downs. To start with all the downs, I found out in beginning of April that my landlord sold the house I was renting. Normally I wouldn’t be too worried, just simply move somewhere else, right?

Quarterly Update and Asset Assessment

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! And what better way to start this day by writing up an Asset Assessment. Damn 2016 is hands done one of the biggest years of my life. The fruits of many years of solid labor, and dedication are starting to pay off. I couldn’t even begin to tell you how many nights I’ve worked myself to the point my body’s joints start to ache. The amount of sacrifice I have made to get to where I am at, the amount of responsibility I have held on my shoulders these past 7 years, and it’s all starting to come together. I feel very much like a snowball midway through its pathway of becoming a massive snow boulder just startingto pick up some momentum, it is like my dividend income finally has some mass, but not as strong had it be like the Giant snowball at the bottom of a long steep hill. It’s very surprising how close I am to reaching F.I. almost as though I’m barely out of reach.

January 2016 Dividends

One of the best ways I like to start any month is by counting all the dividends earned that you didn’t have to work for. I can’t stress enough how great DGI is for my life. Throughout all this down economy, weak dollar, and bearish markets we have been experiencing in Canada I haven’t lost a minute of sleeping worrying about my investments.

Asset Assessment and Dividends for November 2015

For this entry I would like to share with you a quote that I to this day still look back on and use to remind myself to keep focus of whats truly important in life.

“You will find no one willing to share out his money; but to how many does each of us divide up his life! People are frugal in guarding their personal property; but as soon as it comes to squandering time they are most wasteful of the one thing in which it is right to be stingy”

October Dividends 2015

I can’t seem to grasp how fast time flies by the older I get, yes I know time will always remain constant but It really doesn’t seem like 3 years have gone by since I up rooted myself from the comforts of my last home in Saskatchewan to my current home in Northern Alberta. I never really took a moment to reflect on how monumental that decision I made back 3 years ago to move to an area thousands of kilometers away from my friends and family, to a completely foreign environment, not knowing a single person. Needless to say financial growth wasn’t the only change I encountered.

August 2015 Dividends

One of my favorite things to do is count up and add my dividend income for the month. Some say dividend growth investing is boring but personally I think it is very exciting. Watching the dividends slowly, but surely grow and compound is pretty damn thrilling, considering every time my dividends get reinvested it just brings me that much closer to Financial Freedom. Sometimes if I want to get creative with the way I look at my dividends I think to myself, that’s free cellphone services for the rest of my life, or I’ll never have to pay for my car insurance, I could buy a new wardrobe every month, and the list goes on, overall I’d say it’s a pretty cool way to look at dividends.

July 2015 Dividend

Well its days like today where I am exhausted from a busy stretch of work and stand-by services do I feel truly blessed that I have additional income coming my direction. For those who are not aware of what I do, I work in a diagnostic department in northern Alberta offering laboratory and x-ray services. The thing about providing diagnostic services to a 24/7 emergency facility, I am required to be near the site and ready to work on the drop of a dime. Having such responsibility, I am required to work at all hours of the day, and night. Whether it be a sunny, windy, raining, or a black out blizzard I am required to stop whatever I am doing(such as being in a deep sleep at 3 am) and rush to the hospital and provide my services for patients in need.

June 2015 Dividends

I use to dread the idea of myself growing old. Currently now being in my early twenties I am realizing that whether I like it or not I will one day not be able to consider myself a young man. However, the fear that perpetuated inside my mind is now slowly going away over these last several years when I began to assume accountability for all my actions, good or bad. With the mechanisms of dividend growth investing and compounding interest, I no longer dread the future, rather I welcome it and am waiting patiently for it. This is had profound effect on my mind and spirituality, I no longer worry about the small things in life, such as “who is doing what and where? Does that person like me? You mean I have to miss on this cause of work? “. I guess having a dream and plan being put into motion really does prevent me from being envious of others, and trying to keep up with the social media Joneses. With every month that passes by it truly is an amazing feeling I am that much closer to my goals of financial freedom. Here are June 2015 dividends:
