Dividend Income Update – December 2017

Another month has passed by, and it’s time for me to post the dividends that Skyy earned in the month of December. 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.

I know a few of my posts will be late as I have gotten a quarter of a year behind, but the beginning of 2018 was off to a Great start. Also the Tax Reform Bill was passed and approved for the year of 2018. I believe the new Tax Bill will keep the Markets near all time highs/ we won’t go into a Bear Market until at least 2019, but only time will tell.

As always we are truly thankful that Skyy was able to earn $98 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!
