2013 in Review

2013 has come and gone. I remember when the year just started and I was looking for a rental property (Here). Now I am a dividend growth investor.

Now that the year is over, I set out some financial goals for myself. Which can be found Here.

Here were my goals for 2013 that I set out for myself when I started dividend growth investing and this blog.

2013 Goals:
Receive $200 in dividends for the year.
Have a portfolio of $15k or greater by the end of the year.
Have a net-worth of $45k or greater by the end of the year.

I am very happy to inform you all that I have accomplished all my 2013 goals.

In this post (Here) I mention that I passed my $200 of dividends received for the year goal.

In my portfolio page, Here, you can see that I surpass the $15k portfolio value. As of right now my portfolio value is $30,177.12

I am also happy to inform you all that I just passed my Net-worth goal of $45k,

Here you can see that I just passed the goal by $5.

I am very blessed that I am able to set out my goals and accomplish them.

Thank you all for supporting my blog. Please continue to follow me on my financial freedom journal.


  1. Congratulations! It always feels good to surpass goals, and you did a great job. Onward and upward from here

    1. Yes, onward and upward lol. Thanks for the support Fast Weekly.

  2. Your net-worth is really great!
    I wish you that you reach your planned net-worth of $ 70,000 in 2014!

    Best regards!

    1. Thanks Dividenden-Sammler. Best wishes to you as well in 2014! and thanks for the support.

  3. Looks good FF!

    Squeaked by on the net worth goal, pretty close there. I find that it's difficult for me to predict portfolio value/net worth because I have no control over the value of the stocks and bonds I hold. I don't know how to predict where the markets are heading. I feel I can make fairly accurate income projections, but on the other hand dividend growth is out of my control as well. Anyways it's always good to have goals because it gives us something to strive for. I hope 2014 treats you well! Take care.

    1. Thanks Compounding Income. I just pick a number that I think I can reach and just try to get there. If I don't reach it, it is OK because I will be heading the right direction. Thanks for the support and good investing in 2014!

  4. Congrats on surpassing all your goals, FFD.
    Wishing you the best for the next year.
