Holy hell, where have I been!? It’s been fifteen days since my last post and I have hardly visited any of you guys’ websites – the longest I’ve ever been MIA. Busy times at the office, great cycling weather, and a general break from the internet forced my hand in the matter, but from now on you can expect regular updates again, like this one. It’s time to update the value of my financial independence portfolio once again, so let’s get to it.
A couple of days late, but worth the wait! The time has come to update the value of my portfolio and individual holdings again. As per usual my savings have been hard at work to make me more money, even though I enjoyed all sorts of shenanigans the past few weeks – yes, I’m looking at you, bachelor party. So let’s see what’s what.
With March gone the time has come once again to take a quick look at my portfolio and its performance over the past few weeks. The size of my portfolio and the dividends it generates, determine my progress towards financial freedom. Because your net worth directly influences your freedom and flexibility, it should come as no surprise that I like to keep close tabs on my net worth growth.
The time has come to update my net worth and portfolio once again. As a dividend growth investor the absolute value of my assets is subordinate to the fresh cash that they throw off each month, but seeing my net worth grow month after month is fun nonetheless. I think it’s fair to say that everyone loves seeing an upward-trending graph when money is concerned, unless you’re in debt.
This will be a fun post to write, I can already tell! Not only is it quite enjoyable to see my net worth grow as I continue to save and invest, but it’s also fun to explain what the journey towards financial independence is actually all about: building a sizeable freedom fund of high-quality assets. After all, I’m doing this so I have the option of to retire early one day, which is a long way down the road still.
