How Dividend Investing Can Change Your Life

This is a guest post by Millionaire Mob, a blog focused on investing in dividend growth stocks and travel hacking. We have helped thousands of people with bettering their financial future through passive income and dividend investing.

I am on a path to achieve financial freedom through dividend investing and passive income. I am seeking to secure my financial future through these two methods to build income. I seek to have multiple side income streams to be used to recycle into my dividend portfolio. The average millionaire has at least seven different income streams to live off of, so get find yours. Time to go get mine, which is dividend growth investing!

With dividend investing, I like to think of it as a second job. Dividend investing allows me to build an income stream, but also gives an opportunity to realize long-term capital appreciation as stock prices rise. Thus, this results in the ultimate total return scenario.

What is dividend investing?

Dividend investing is a proven strategy that is focused on solely investing in dividend growth stocks that pay a dividend. Usually a company has two options use their cash flow from operations: one is paying a dividend to shareholders and the other is reinvesting the cash flow into the business. A dividend is a payment made by a company to reward shareholders. We’ve built the ultimate guide to building a dividend portfolio to help you succeed in your path to financial freedom.

Why is dividend investing life changing?

If you turn your focus to building a dividend portfolio, you enable yourself to live free. Building a dividend portfolio takes time and effort. However, if you have a specialized plan, you can build your wealth rapidly. Warren Buffett invested in Coca-Cola over 25 years ago. The stock and dividend has increased so much in value that Warren Buffett receives over a 40% dividend yield from his initial investment! I doubt Warren Buffett will ever sell a share of Coca-Cola.

If you look at Warren Buffet’s portfolio, nearly all stocks pay a dividend.

Where do you start to build a dividend portfolio?

• Find a brokerage that you like and one that offers low-commission trading. There are a number of different sites out there that will allow you to trade completely commission-free.

• Write down on paper how much you plan to allocate to the portfolio each month. Try to exceed that amount each month and increase it each year.

• Find the best undervalued dividend growth stocks to start building your portfolio. I suggest having at least 3-4 Dividend Kings in your portfolio. Dividend Kings are safe, high-quality dividend growth stocks that have at least 50 years of increasing their dividends.

• Make your initial investment in the companies that you understand. 

• When you receive your first dividend payment, reinvest it back into your portfolio of stocks! Make sure you are fully invested at all times and continue to allocate your balance transfers.

• Sit back and enjoy the show. Follow the plan and before you know it, your income will continue increase over time.

Please note that you should make these considerations after you have funded your retirement accounts in full or as much as possible. I always advocate for tax-advantaged accounts like a 401(k), Roth IRA or IRA should be fully invested first. After that, you can allocate the remaining to the dividend portfolio as a “sidecar” to build your income.

Dividend investing is not easy and is not a get rich quick method. It takes time and patience, but it is extremely rewarding. What are you going to do to achieve financial freedom? Please let us know in the comments below. We’d love to hear from you.
