March 2021 Dividend Income

Hundred dollar bills in dividend incomeInflation is coming/here in America, brace yourself with inflation proof income producing assets as Federal Reserve, neither federal, nor does it have reserves, keeps on printing. The real reason why things such as commodities and everyday items go up is not because they magically start costing more, it is because dollar ($) keeps on being diluted/printed/expanded monetarily. Fiat currency is trash, well, actually even trash retains some of its value over time. To note, it is dollar’s 50th year anniversary since it was removed from backing of gold. The result is a loss of over ~85% of dollar’s value over 50 years. It is one of the biggest taxes humans already pay on top of all of the other ones we pay. Good luck, it will take more than courage to navigate through these treacherous monetary waters. Keep on staying ignorant at your own peril!
I enjoy publishing these monthly dividend income reports as I have gained a much better understanding in how much of my passive income is coming in every month and how much it is growing over time. For the month of March I have received a total of 24 diversified direct deposits in the form of dividends straight to my brokerage account. This is not to brag, but to motivate and inspire!
