I’m trying something new this month, my income report is now displayed via infographic below. People love pretty pictures and as a designer, I can do pretty pictures. What do you think of it?
I broke $70 once again! This is in large to my Cash Back Credit Card because I recently made some large purchases like a new tux (work thing) as well as nice watch. I try not to go excessive buying luxuries, but I when I do, I like to get something that last, much like my dividends.
I had a record number with my dividend income reaching $13.93. That is fantastic. That just proves if I could live off of $13.93 a month I could NOW retire. Unfortunately I can’t because I live in Denver, and there is just WAY to much cool shit to do.
I’m now testing that $13.93 I made from Dividends on a $6,000 portfolio vs the $3.30 I made off of Lending Club with a $300 portfolio. The lending club portfolio is roughly 12% which is so much better than my dividend investing portfolio. Let’s keep track of this and see how it continues to mature.
- I recently had a random encounter with Mike Kilcoyne of “Embrace the Suck” while I was out the other night and man, this guy is awesome. While we connected on our entrepreneur spirit. He asked some amazing questions about Wallet Squirrel that I never thought to ask. Afterward I started to peruse his website and the articles & writing are fantastic. I’ve been going over his post the good part of this weekend. I know this random encounter and lessons discussed will improve the direction I want to take Wallet Squirrel in the future.
- I want to start incorporating more graphics into my post like the infographic above. I am a designer within the investing world, I have a unique edge on most dividend investors in the way I can graphically tell a story. I want to start developing this.
- Continue to build my audience. This website is both how to make extra money and invest those funds. I’ve been targeting dividend investors, but people wanting to learn how to make extra money would find value in Wallet Squirrel as well. I need to show them what I’ve done that works and doesn’t.
What do you think of the new infographic set up?
