Like everyone out there reading this, I need financial freedom in my life.
Well, I achieved it in my early 30s. And I did so after growing up on welfare in Detroit, losing my parents at a young age, dropping out of college, never having a high-paying job, and even getting fired during the depths of the financial crisis in 2009.
How did I turn it around?
I largely owe 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 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 a six-figure wealth inside of three years. Moreover, I went from below broke at age 27 to financially free at 33. I’m now in a position where my dividends cover my bills.
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.
