Another month down and another month closer to my goal of retiring on my dividends. I know this goal is years away, but it is really exciting for me to see the difference a month makes. Month over month, year over year, my dividends will continue to grow if I stay the course. My goal this year is to hit $1,500 in dividends. This was an aggressive goal prior to my decision to walk away from my employer. If you remember, changing jobs allowed me to rollover m 401k into an IRA, which has allowed me to buy dividend paying stocks. Since then, this has become the easiest of my 2015 goals. Last month my dividends surpassed $1,500 for 2015!

Adding up my dividends received, I’ve currently earned $1908.52. I estimate that I will finish up 2015 with dividends totaling around $3,000.
