Welcome to the fifteenth (#15) dividend income report, covering earnings I've made from dividend-paying stocks, peer to peer lending (both fiat and cryptocurrencies) in July 2018. 

In case you are wondering why I'm sharing online my earnings - the answer is pretty simple - I like transparency and these reports help me to observe my progress or bounces. Hopefully, my reports can give some inspiration to you as well.

For the second year in a row - July is the best performing month in my portfolio, and this July did break all milestones and for the first time since tracking, cracked pretty impressive $200 milestone.

Goals for July 2019

This is my favorite part of the reports - trying to forecast/set goals for the next year. But before setting goals for July 2019 dividend income, let's see what I forecasted for this July:

I'm looking to get about $200 in July 2018 dividend income

Wow, I just did it. Amazing!

Now, when speaking about July 2019 - I will set a goal to crack $300. Hard but doable.

With hitting for the first time $200 in a month from dividend income it feels amazing. More amazingly -  I started my journey towards financial freedom just 19 months ago. Seems dividend ball is starting to roll. Hope to report more often months like this. On the other hand, doubt I will reach another $200 before this December,
