  1. AA,

    You're killing it, my friend. That's just a huge month of dividends. Must feel wonderful to earn that much passive income. :)

    Keep up the great work!

    Best wishes.

  2. AA,

    Strong month! September should be insane especially with your BBL payment.


  3. DM, thanks for stopping by! Your killing it yourself with your passive and online income! Awesome!

    Keep up the great work yourself :)

  4. MDP, thanks man! Looking forward to September and should be close to my first $2k month! Really looking forward to when my "weaker" months are at $2k..

    Just a matter of time for both of us!


  5. Your progress is awesome!. The pace of your reinvestments is wonderful. Do you live frugally or is it just that your income allows you such a high saving rate?

    BTW, I've also just published my july dividend income.

  6. Hi Jose, I have an above average income but also live in a very high cost area. I am also heavy in cash which I will deploy during a correction.

    Congrats on your progess as well! GE and PM are my 2 largest positions.

    cheers, AA

  7. What a great Blog and a wonderful Portfolio. I love your asset allocation and the way you invest. I personally own the most of your stocks by myself.

    Keep up your great work. Ah, I've put your blog into my blogroll. My readers should benefit from your great ideas. Hope you can do the same for me; be sure, I will come back soon :-)

  8. Wow great progress! I'm hoping to receive just as much as you are in a few years. :)

  9. Very solid month man. Keep on grinding

  10. Dividend Yield, thanks for the comment and the add to your blogroll! Congrats on your success! I hope to reach FI over the next 10 years myself and my dividend growth investing will be one of the main ways I will accomplish the goal.

    cheers! AA

  11. Tawcan, thanks man. You are doing a great job yourself and you will be where I am in very short time.

    Keep up the good work!

  12. Asset Grinder, thanks for the comment. Yup- Keep grinding week and week, month after month, year after year.

    I need to look into adding a brewery to my portfolio! :)


  13. Wow amazing! The dividend amount is HUGE! Hopefully I'll get to your point in the next couple years.
