Dividend Income from YOU the Bloggers! – December 2020

december dividend income

We continue our march towards financial freedom. 2020 is finally over, but WOW has 2021 started off on a frenzy.  We have a new president and the WallStreetBets, i.e. the retail investors, are attempting to take down Wall Street hedge funds…we love it!  Talk about insanity though with what Robinhood and other brokerages are doing.

Every month, we are inspired by the growth and progress of all the dividend income bloggers from around the world.  Many records were set in December to close out the year, while countless other bloggers saw their dividend income increase.  All of you continue to inspire and demonstrate, yet again, that the passive income source from dividends is a viable path to financial freedom.

Therefore, without further ado, we proudly present to you, Dividend Income from YOU the Bloggers – December 2020 style.
