September 2017 Income

September has always been one of the higher paying months, and this month was no exception. In fact, I set an all time record for me… $1226.75. This is a 66.7% increase from last September. My rent for the month was basically all paid by dividends! This was the second...

February 2017 Income

Better late than never! I’ve been super busy with work, traveling to a prostate cancer conference in San Francisco, and traveling with my girlfriend.

January 2017 Income

Wow! January 2017 is done already. Time is just flying! This January I received $156.89, compared with $144.28 in January 2016. This is an increase of only 8.7%. It doesn’t seem like much but it is still much faster than inflation. January has typically been my lowest paying month, and...
