  1. our goals are much the same! keep up the great work! I'm also trying to save 1k per month! Your annual dividend income is higher then mine currently also! I will work to catch up!

    1. Hope you catch up =) Good to see someone close to where I am and look forward to following your journey! I would love to keep growing at this rate but unfortunately might have to slow down for a bit in order to pay for some other expenses. Let's see what happens!


  2. The basis of my current plan is that I am trying to save enough money to be able to live off half of the interest, plus the rental income of the estate. I hope everything will be ok.
