First post about my Side Hustles that I wrote before, I try to bring as much income as I can so I can pay my child support(Alimony), so I built few income streams in case I will lose again my day job income - Like I was in the last 3 months.

so here they are:

Dividend income - $26.19

Ads on this blog and my other blog about coins and stamps - $0.10

Delcampe store - $2 sales (Not profit!!)

eBay Store - $0 sales( Yes ZERO!!)

Recycling Cans and Bottles - $80

Total Side Hustles for August: $108.29

I think that for first month that I do side hustles it is good income, What do think??

Dividend Income - August 2015

Another month has passed by and I'm glad to share my journey to financial freedom due to alimony.
In August I've earned $26.19 (after tax) in dividends  -

GIS - $5.94
AXP - $3.04
CL - $4.56
PG - $5.96
FAST - $3.99
COST - $2.70

This month I've sold 5 ETF's: DVE, IYR, IXJ, FDD and KBE.

This month I've bought 8 stocks: WFC, T , VZ, JNJ, DE, DOV, CAT and PM.

Next month probably I will have less dividend income due to the ETF's sells but I offset it with 8 new stocks so in the other months I will get higher dividends.

May dividend income covers 3.90% from the monthly alimony.

I invite you to write and share your dividend income of August.

I'm long on all the above mention stocks..

Dividend Portfolio Update - August 2015

Well, the time has come to update my dividend portfolio once again as heading to another start of a new month. My portfolio is my way to freedom from looking after funds to pay my alimony. One day, the dividend income this portfolio generates will fully cover my alimony. It’s important to keep in mind that I'm updating the overall value of my portfolio because if I have setbacks (like in the last 3 months I'm not working a full time job and I 'm doing side hustles), I will use the funds in my dividend portfolio to pay my alimony.

First Of September - My Life Is On The Right Way :)

In recent months I searched again the path of my life .
A year ago I've decided to make a change in my employment and learn a new profession - an insurance broker and an investment advisor .
At age 44(in 2 weeks :-) ), divorce, father of two children who is paying alimony(child support), it was a big risk, my studies cost a lot of money, I moved back from the north to the center of the country, and my new job was enough for basic expenses and alimony(child support).

As someone who has been throgh a thing or two in his life, I jumped back into the cold water with a lot of faith I can do it.
I enrolled in four courses at the same time to finish and gradueat as quickly as possible. 
I started a new job in a new city called Herzliya and it 
seemed that everything goes smoothly.

There was only one thing I didn’t tought about…
