5 Reasons Why I’m Into Dividend Growth Investing

Would you like to become financially independent and even potentially retire early? Want to live off of the completely passive income your investments generate for you? Looking for the perfect strategy to accomplish this?

I want to share with you viewers today why I chose to be a dividend growth investor. I made this decision back in early 2010, way before YouTube investing videos were all the rage. This decision was based around a clear objective. I wanted to become financially independent and retire by 40 years old. At the time I was almost 28 years old. So I gave myself about 12 years to make it happen.

Now, there are a lot of investing strategies I considered and could have used. But I ultimately saw dividend growth investing with a dividend portfolio as the best strategy to get me to the promised land. And I must say, it worked out much better than I expected. So much better, in fact, that I accomplished my goal seven years early.

That's right. I achieved financial independence at only 33 years old.

I now collect four-figure passive dividend income every single month without lifting a finger. I get paid just to exist, which is amazing. This strategy has served me well. And I believe it can serve you well, too. I want to share with you five reasons why I chose to be a dividend growth investor and why I think it's the perfect strategy for becoming financially independent and retiring early.

The first reason is perhaps the most important reason. If you're going to live off of investment income in lieu of job income, you need to make sure that income is extremely reliable.

The second reason is this: Dividends are as passive as it gets. Once you own stock in a dividend-paying company, you don't have to do anything else in order to collect that dividend in perpetuity. It's a one-and-done that you'll find almost nowhere else. I'm not saying there aren't a lot of fantastic ways to make a lot of money.

The third reason is that it forces you to invest in only the best businesses. See, a growing dividend is a litmus test for two things. First, it shows you which businesses can to pay a growing dividend. Second, it shows you which companies value their shareholders enough to share with them their fair share of growing profit.
