Goal Achieved – $2000 Passive Income

I started off this year with a goal of achieving $2,000 in passive income and I finally reached that goal this week. This came as a surprise as I was not expecting to reach my goal until November after my healthcare mutual fund decided to pay out its annual distribution in October instead of the usual December. As expected, I am ecstatic that I was able to meet and will be surpassing this goal by a few hundred dollars, thanks to my ever increasing investments in dividend paying stocks and addition of other sources of passive income this year.
I hope all my readers are achieving their goals and I wish them the best. I am yet to set a goal for 2014, which I should be finalizing in the coming weeks.

  1. Congratulations! That is awesome! I just posted my goal update after seeing earlier in the year I was a bit conservative. Go big or go home! Looking forward to seeing what your 2014 goal will look like.

    • Writing2Reality,
      Thank you for the wishes. I started off with a goal of $2000 and that has ballooned as my total investments over the year have gone up. I just discovered your blog after you left the comment. You have a great diversification of sources for you passive income. Looking forward to follow your progress. Good luck!

  2. Congratulations!

    $2,000 is more than a whole month of working full-time at $10/hour. That means you have a “worker” in the house going out there and working five weeks a year and giving you all of their income. Nice job!

    Best wishes.

    • Thats a great way to look at things, Mantra. Thanks for the words of support. Readers like you keep me motivated in sharing my achievement on the web.
      Hope you are on track to reach your goal of $3500 – and wish you the best. That might turn out to be my next years goal 🙂

    Congratulations! Quick question. What was your investment back in 2011? I’m at ~$500 from low yield savings + ~$600 from cash back (due to my current job, but can’t be sustained long term)
