Well, the first quarter of 2016 is in the books and what a wild market ride it was.  The first half of the quarter saw a market bloodbath with lows not seen in several years, while the second half saw celebrations and cheers.  I have to be honest, as a Dividend Growth Investor with a growing portfolio still in the accumulation phase, I like those down days when it’s red everywhere.  It’s like going to my favorite retail store outlet and every item on the shelf is marked down 20 to 30%!

It is now time for our favorite subject – PASSIVE INCOME!!!  This is the time to tally up how much money my money made, how much I earned without doing anything to earn it.  It’s about planting a single seed into the ground and watching it yield fruit every season.  It’s a way to TRADE OUR hectic work LIFE for a much simpler one.
