7 Steps to Financial Independence



Are you looking for ways to become financially independent? That’s good! Because today I want to share with you my 7 powerful tips to help you reach your financial freedom. Financial freedom does not necessarily mean a retirement or to quit your job. I define financial freedom when you are not forced to work to pay the bills, but when you work for pleasure and have tons of time to do what you love and enjoy the most.

Portfolio Value Update - January 2017

Hello to all my fellow investors, friends, bloggers, and regular visitors! Welcome to the brand new 2017 year. I can’t believe time flies so fast. Next month it’s already spring and everything will start to bloom again. But first, let’s look how my portfolio did in in January.

As of January 31, 2017 my dividend portfolio balance stood at $40,710.55. That’s an increase of $917.90 from last month. Finally, for the first time ever, I broke the $40K barrier. Of course, that would not have been possible without my monthly contributions and dividend income. My next milestone is $50K and it should be attained by the end of this year.

Hello my fellow investors! Another month is in the books and I'm happy to post another portfolio value update. As of November 31, 2016 my dividend portfolio balance stood at $37,745.91. That’s an increase of $1,798 compared to last month. Not bad compared to the previous month. My portfolio have recovered from October sell-off and continued to rally higher. By the way, the 37K level is a new record for me. I'm slowly approaching a round number of 40K. It should take a few more months to get there.

Portfolio Value Update - October 2016


Portfolio Value
As of October 31, 2016 my dividend portfolio balance stands at $35,947.54. That’s a decrease of $429 compared to last month. The last week of October was bad. My portfolio has lost around $1000 in value, but that’s all right. Stocks go up and down and since I’m in assets accumulation mode, I can benefit of those low stock prices. We have two more months till the end of the year. This is the time when volatility increases and then everything settles down around January-February.
