For the past 9+ years, my wife and I have been building a sustainable income stream that grows year after year. Although we didn’t know it at the time, when we bought our first share of a stock that paid dividends … we were heading down a path to financial independence. Over those years, investing […] The post Realty Income Corp (O) Giving Shareholders a 4th Raise this Year appeared first ...

It’s seems like it has been a long time since we reported a company dividend increase … about 2 months actually. And while it has been some time, the companies we own that are getting ready to announce a dividend hike is ready to jump. That is the best thing about owning a portfolio of […] The post Verizon Communications (VZ) Rewards Shareholders with Dividend Increase appeared first on The Money ...

The main purpose of The Money Sprout blog is to explore and discover new and exciting side income streams … also commonly referred to as side hustles. With the exception of a few minor side hustle ideas that have fizzled out (i.e. Fulfillment by Amazon), the only significant income stream we post about is our […] The post Blogging Income Goals for September 2017 appeared first on The Money Sprout. ...

Another month has passed in 2017 … and once again it is time to publish our dividend income results. We had an excellent month of August as far as dividend income earned … as our sustainable side income stream keeps growing and growing. Every month we are earning 20% to 40% more than we did […] The post August 2017 Dividend Income – $163.01 appeared first on The Money Sprout. ...

We have a goal this year to earn $2,400 in dividend income. Unless companies start slashing their dividends in the next 4 months … I expect we will surpass that mark by a few dollars. Earning $2,400 in dividends might not seem that significant, but after earning just under $2,000 in dividends last year, that […] The post How to Grow Dividend Income – August 2017 Updates appeared first on The ...

It has been over 2 years now that we have been tracking our net worth. And in almost every net worth report that we publish … our net worth has grown. Guess what? Yep … we had another increase in August … although it was smaller than normal. So … for the 8th consecutive month […] The post August 2017 – Net Worth Update appeared first on The Money Sprout. ...

Our family has never really followed a strict monthly budget. There are way too many spending variables for our family to stick to a budget. However, that doesn’t mean we are not conscious about where our money is being spent every month. You see … for our family … it is more about deciding what […] The post How Did We Spend Our Money in July (2017) appeared first on The ...

I am always looking for opportunities to grow our side income streams. One day in the future, I hope to replace our full-time income with money from a variety of income streams … of which most will be passive. Those income streams that are not passive should at least be location independent. This means we […] The post Blogging Income Goals for August 2017 appeared first on The Money Sprout. ...

We are now into the second half of 2017 … and our dividend portfolio of stocks continues to grow and earn our family more income. Every month we are earning 20% to 40% more than we did during the same month a year ago. For example, just last month (June 2017), we earned 39.7% more […] The post July 2017 Dividend Income – $153.50 appeared first on The Money Sprout. ...

We are set to earn over $2,400 in dividend income this year! This might not seem that significant, but after earning just under $2,000 in dividends last year, that is a 20% increase in income. Next year, we have even loftier goals of earning $3,000 in dividend income for 2018. That would be a 25% […] The post How to Grow Dividend Income – July 2017 Updates appeared first on The ...
