2017 Goals

2017 is finally here and I am more than ready for what it can bring us.   I believe this will be the best year ever in terms of what new skills I have learned.

DGI and Savings

This will be the first full year of Dividend Growth Investing and I can’t wait for what it will produce.  Plowing every possible cent in the brokerage account and making it investable dollars.

The savings average per month in the taxable account last year was $3,137.08 and in 2017, I hope to at least double that.  Goal for 2017 is $6,274.16+ which should translate to $75,289.92 in new capital from savings along, not including rental and side gigs. A hefty goal indeed.

I’m working on a way to publish my portfolio so you can be shown in real time. Stay tuned.

Rental Income

I raised the rent on one of the apartments since it had been a while since I raised it.  Total expected rental income profit per month will be $1,460, $17,520 per year in passive income.  All this extra income will go to brokerage account.

Other Gigs

Credit Card Trade lines should bring in at least ~$10k in additional passive income. Network monitoring for my friend’s office, $125/month, $1,500 per year.

Final Thoughts

My main idea for this blog will be to document my achievements so I can look back and see how much progress was made.   What could I have done better or worse.

Thanks for reading.

  1. Nice goals for 2017. That is a ridiculous amount of new capital you are able to add to your investment account. It will be interesting to see the big jumps in dividends collected in comparison to 2016. Good luck this year!
