My 2018 Goals

Posted on

With the new year celebrations well and truly enjoyed, now is an opportunity to reflect on 2017 and plan for the upcoming year. Last year I didn’t write about formal financial goals on my blog but I thought it could be fun this year. I’m sure as hell it will motivate me knowing you all […]

Dividend Harvest (October 2017)

Posted on

Previous Dividend Harvest here. October brought with it a few showers, some warm weather and a fresh harvest of dividend income. I received dividends from two companies.

Portfolio Page Complete
