Is it possible to create an ever-increasing income stream of dividends? The answer is yes. I know, because I am investing in (dividend) stocks since 2000. And many other people do the same. The internet is home of many bloggers sharing their stories about investing in dividend stocks. I call these bloggers income heroes for two reasons:
- They take their financial future into their own hands. Depending on your living place, this can be a tough effort. In Germany you better don’t talk about stocks. Otherwise people will shake one’s head and try to bring you to back to reason before your live gets ruined.
- Income heroes are a counterbalance to the horde of financial analphabets. Thanks to them, even surrounded by banksters and saving book lovers, you still have a chance to know it better – assumed you are connected to the internet.
DividendStocks.Cash strives to be a useful source for dividend investors by making it easy to find companies with long-term profit growth by offering most import facts using appropriate metrics and visualization. The launch of Income Heroes in particular is the attempt to create a platform to document the success stories of as many veteran income heroes as possible. You may feel honored being listed here, because it proofs that you did not only successfully invest in dividend stocks for a considerable amount of time but also invested plenty of your precious time in blogging. Many other bloggers kept investing but lost interest in blogging after some time.
This page records and analyses the monthly income of veteran bloggers as early as 2015. This allows anyone to trace dividend growth over a decent amount of time. As an interested reader, watch the passive income increase, visit income heroes' websites and finally become a dividend invest your-self.
Why you should create a dividend income, too
Maybe you don’t own a single stock and feel happy with this right now. Anyway, if you never profit from the power of growing dividends, you’ll miss one of the greatest opportunities of modern times: creating wealth and maybe even breaking the cycle of trading life time vs money. By patiently investing in solid dividend stocks you create an ever-increasing stream of passive income without any need on your behalf to trade precious life-time against. It is both fascinating and rewarding to observe your personal snow-ball of dividends growing.
