Don’t treat Dividend Paying Stocks like Bonds! 3

A generation ago, income seeking investors looked to bonds for safe and stable income payments. This made sense as investors could easily get a safe yield of 8% or higher. But in todays low interest rate environment, bonds are not attractive for income seeking investors. This is especially true for retirees who traditionally tend to hold the majority of their portfolios in bonds as they need the income today. 10 year bond yields are currently yielding about 2%. This means that you need to have £2,000,000 invested just to generate an income of £40,000 a year. As you already know, this is a huge problem. Most retired investors don’t have […]

The Wonderful Feeling of Owning Stocks in Companies 3

I’ll never forget the first time I got dividends paid into my brokerage account from the first shares I ever bought. To say it was a wonderful feeling is an understatement. The thought occurred to me that being a part owner of a company is so much better than being an employee where you work your socks off for the benefit of someone and else and always have the worry of being laid off. It was passive income at its best. The first dividend payment felt like a whole new way of viewing the world. Even though the amount i received was small, the impact it has had is priceless. […]

Lyft is an app which matches drivers who own cars with passengers that need rides. It is one of the first peer-to-peer ride sharing apps created and that is why its founder Logan Green is a true revolutionist. Whilst thousands use Lyft everyday and millions more know of the company, not many people know where the idea of peer-to-peer ride sharing comes from.   So where did the idea of Lyft come?

Inside the small boat were several large yellowfin tuna. The tourist complimented the Mexican on the quality of his fish and asked how long it took to catch them. The Mexican replied, “Only a little while.” The tourist then asked, “Why didn’t you stay out longer and catch more fish?” The Mexican said, “With this I have more than enough to support my family’s needs.” The tourist then asked, “But what do you do with the rest of your time?” The Mexican fisherman said, “I sleep late, fish a little, play with my children, take siesta with my wife, Maria, stroll into the village each evening where I sip wine […]

For many people who want to be financially free, passive income is the ultimate goal. Passive income allows you the opportunity to do what you want to do without thinking of where your next pay check is coming from. Imagine this: You hop on a flight to Spain or Tunisia or Thailand. You spend a month revelling by the sea and sand.  You taste new foods. You discover new music. You spot wildlife you’ve never imagined. You have the time of your life. You don’t check email the entire time. Heck, you don’t even post photos to Instagram or Facebook. You’re radically offline — like it’s 1974. You return to […]
