No major updates for March or actually for the whole month of March to report. The Skyy Fund has been chugging along but has been flat the past 5-6 weeks. Hopefully things will pick up again like they did after the election, but once again time will tell. Here is to another Great 8 months on the Trump Express!

Dividend Income Update – March 2017

Another month has passed by, and it’s time for me to post the dividends that Skyy earned in the month of March. It’s hard to argue the success of long-term dividend growth investing when you can slowly and surely see dividend income rise over time and get closer to covering your family expenses.

I hope these monthly dividend income reports provide inspiration for any investors out there that are just starting out. It shows that it’s possible to one day pay for monthly expenses with dividends, which would provide an investor opportunities and freedom to pursue other interests than full-time work.

What you’ll see below is a list of every dividend Skyy collected over the prior month, which company paid the dividend and the amount of the dividend.

March 2017 Dividends Received

  • Pfizer (PFE) – $3.43
  • Spectra Energy (SE) – $2.55
  • Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) – $1.66
  • Emerson Electric (EMR) – $2.51
  • Chevron (CVX) – $2.28
  • Realty Income (O) – $6.74
  • Unilever (UL) – $0.70
  • Consolidated Edison (ED) – $7.39
  • Old Republic (ORI) – $3.92
  • Waste Management (WM) – $0.89
  • Health Care Partners (HCP) – $11.85
  • Frontline (FRO) – $21.07
  • BHP Billiton (BBL) – $2.56
  • Bank of America (BAC) – $1.52
  • Cornerstone Fund (CLM) – $36.05
  • Aberdeen Income Fund (FAX) – $7.90

Total dividends received during the month of March: $113.02

Crazy to think that 3 whole months have already passed in 2017! I honestly feel sometimes that the market is waiting on Trump to actually do something that he promised, but once that is found not to be true there will be a big Drop. I am still trying to get the dividend income over $100 each month, but it might take at least another 5-6 months. You just have to love with each passing week there is Fresh Cash being added to the account.

As always we are truly thankful that Skyy was able to earn $113 this month without lifting a finger and continuing to be a great daughter. She did nothing to earn this money except for make great decisions with past Cash Flow!

Once again every dollar working on my behalf means my family will have to worry about less in the future. Since money doesn’t sleep, get tired, or get sick (unlike humans) I’d rather my money work for me rather than the other way around.

It feels really good to be in a position to continue to put fresh capital to work. Anyone can look at the stock market like any other market or store. It offers a lot of merchandise, some expensive, some cheap. In the end it’s up to the individual to pick what’s best for them!

Purchased 40 shares of Aberdeen Income Fund (FAX) on 10/20/16 for $ 4.93 per share

Purchased 75 shares of NXT-ID (NXTD) on 11/3/16 for $ 2.54 per share

Purchased 10 shares of Old Republic (ORI) on 11/28/16 for $ 18.12 per share

Purchased 35 shares of Aberdeen Income Fund (FAX) on 11/28/16 for $ 4.76 per share

It’s the end of March and the markets have recently Hit New Highs and still sitting above 20K. Also the Skyy Fund is chugging along with New Cash being added each week via Dividends.

I have decided to add more shares to the Aberdeen Income Fund(FAX), which has been slowly raising in Dividend Income the past couple of months. I also added 10 more shares to Old Republic(ORI) which has impressed me the past year with some growth for an older insurance company.

The past 2 years since I started on my Dividend Journey the account has been growing between 500-1000 dollars every few months ($100 dollars worth of dividends every month Helps). I have talked to thousands of people on my blog and facebook and I am glad that more people are opening their eyes to investing and thinking outside the box, instead of just the 9-5 (Rat Race). I may write a post about this in the future but until then I will continue to make this Free Cash Flow and here is to a Great rest of 2017 with Trump.

Be The Change You Wish To See

I’ve come to strongly believe that you cannot change others, for better or worse. So what I have decided to do is Become the change I wish to see in others through Action.

I find that people have to want to change themselves, and without experiencing some kind of epiphany will likely remain the way they are for the rest of their lives. I see and talk to people every week on social media (FACEBOOK) that fall into this or think investing can’t be done by them personally. Trying too hard to change people will often drive them further away from you, and closer to whatever it is you’re trying to get them to avoid. This is because people naturally get defensive when others – especially those closest to them – question their decisions or lifestyle.

If you’re trying to effect change in someone you become an external force which inevitably puts the other party in a position to internalize their feelings and emotions. In the end I just want people to be able to retire before the age of 60 and have their Money/Income grow and work for them through each passing year. To be able to pass down their wealth to their children/family, so they don’t have to start off in the same place as them when they were the same age.

I hope for the year 2017 more people begin to Invest and grow Wealth for either themselves and their families. America is built on Capitalism so why not be part of it? It would be like if your a Fish in the ocean but you decide you don’t need to swim to survive. I feel like if people are comfortable they will never want to change and at times I can’t blame them, but they should at least know how to grow their Money if they did lose their 9-5 job. In this world/America only time will tell and lets hope people make the right decision.
