Hi. I’m Jason Fieber.
I was born in 1982 and grew up on welfare in Detroit. Lost my parents at a young age. Became adopted. Dropped out of college. Never had a high-paying career. And I was fired from my automotive job during the depths of the financial crisis, in 2009.
Finding myself in debt and unemployed at 27 years old, I realized that I needed control in my life. Being reliant on the whims of an employer in order to put a roof over my head was no longer acceptable.
I needed financial freedom.
Well, I achieved it in my early 30s. And I did so after all of those personal and financial setbacks.
How did I turn it around?
A lot of 60-hour workweeks and ramen noodles for sure.
But I really owe much of my success to a simple investing strategy called dividend growth investing.
This is a strategy that advocates buying and holding shares in world-class enterprises that pay reliable and rising cash dividends.
These dividends are the “proof in the pudding”. The profit pudding, that is.
Better yet, you end up with more pudding year in and year out.
And this is the kind of pudding that allows you to have it and eat it, too.
After financially struggling for much of my life, being financially free feels amazing. And I share content here to help others make smarter investment decisions, achieve financial freedom, and live off of dividends.
I spent years of my life living extremely frugally and pumping every spare penny into high-quality dividend growth stocks trading at appealing valuations. I worked hard, did my research, educated myself on how to become a great long-term investor, and built six-figure wealth inside of three years. Moreover, I went from below broke at age 27 to financially free at 33.
My six-figure stock portfolio now produces enough dividend income for me to live off of.
Living off of dividends is a dream come true.
Imagine having a gaggle of golden geese that lay an ever-larger pile of golden eggs. You never slaughter the geese for income. Instead, you live off of those golden eggs and watch the geese get fatter and happier over time.
Imagine having a magic tree in your backyard that sheds leaves of money. You never cut this tree down. You only pluck the money leaves and use that to cover your bills, watching the tree grow taller and able to shed even more money leaves over the years.
This is the beauty of dividend growth investing and living off of dividends. You build a high-quality dividend growth stock portfolio, abstain from liquidating your investments, and live off of the growing dividends your stocks send you.
Please follow along as I share content every single week covering stock analyses, market news, dividend updates, and the dividend growth investing strategy. This content is coming from someone who actually used investing to become financially free at a very young age. So I put my money where my mouth is.
I’ve been analyzing stocks, building a real-money portfolio, and creating investment content for a decade.
My content has been featured in places such as Lifehacker, Seeking Alpha, Daily Trade Alert, and Business Insider.
