Investing

Ask anyone who is financially independent and the one thing they’ll recommend is investing.

You can’t let your money sit on the sidelines collecting dust.  You’ve got to put it to work.

That’s where investing comes in.

It’s what makes your money grow without you having to do anything.  You earn more while you sleep.

Better still, invest in dividend stocks.  You can earn a passive income paycheck every month without lifting a finger.

A dividend is a payment made by a company to its shareholders.

The dividend can be in the form of cash or additional stock.  Think of it as sharing in the company’s profits.

Dividend paying stocks are proven market beaters compared to non-dividend payers.

Here are some of the best posts on investing and dividend investing:
