  1. R2R,
    Good looking month here. I like that you’ve incorporated some income producing ETFs into your stream of cash. I’m am going to be looking at some of these once I deposit some money into my Roth IRA at then end of the year. Hoping to find some low cost index funds that pay me.

    • RDB,
      I like the idea of having the ETFs which reduces some of the risks in my portfolio, while allowing me to take advantage of the broader market’s rise. There are some great products out there – sifting through them will take some time. Good luck!

    • Thanks, Dividenden-Sammler.
      It takes time to build up. When I started a few years ago, I had no idea when I would be able to make $2000-$3000 a year. But I am at that point now. Im sure you will reach that point soon if you keep at it.

      Best wishes
