My Dividend Investing Journey


Dividend Driven's Investing Thoughts

.

Years To Retirement

Welcome to my dividend investing blog. I am a dividend blogger and I created Dividend Driven to track my journey to financial independence by age 70. I believe investing at least 50% of my monthly income into dividend paying ETF's will maximize my passive income during retirement. I also embody the ideals that everyone can exhibit self responsibility and manage their investments themselves. Today we have more access to different types of investments and research tools than we have ever had before. Dividend investing will continue to be a solid investment strategy long-term and it will create an abundance of wealth for the smart investor. Below is my journal of things that I think about when it comes to financial independence.

5 Reasons

Why do some people pass on free money from a company match?

  • They live paycheck to paycheck
  • They think a house is a better investment
  • They think they will need access to the money before retiring
  • Their friends do not have retirement accounts
  • They have excuses to not cut on spending
