I started saving money and taking care of all my debt. I took care of my student loans as well as my car in 10 months which was a total of about $19k. I am debt free which feels great.Once I took care of all my debt, I was interesting in finding a way to get passive income. My parents own two property. One is a house and the other is a condominium. I thought I would get a property for myself to rent out and start getting passive income from it like my parents. Since the market crash in 2008-2009, the house market was very cheap. However, I started looking for a house when things started to pick up in early 2013. By this time the houses were getting to be more and more expensive for me to own. So I gave up on looking for a house to rent.
I still wanted to get a way to get passive income some how. I was doing a lot of research and I finally learn about dividends. When I found out about dividends and the benefits, I realize that this was the way for me to build passive income to cover all my expenses.
I found and follow other people that blog there journey with building passive income with dividends. This help me to decide to create a blog of my own and to track all my successes and failures.
