Introduction

Hello, everyone. Right off the bat, I have to confess I am not a great blog writer, or at least I am not convinced I will be. This is my first first attempt at capturing and publishing my thoughts.

I love to read articles that others have written about personal finance, budgeting, and dividend investing. For me, it is really motivating to read stories about young people who make hundreds of dollars every month in dividends–I am looking at you Dividend Diplomats 🙂–but it can also be disheartening to someone who is just getting started and at a different point in their life.

I am 38, married, with three kids, a mortgage or two, and some debts to pay off. Unfortunately, I am not in a position to invest hundreds of dollars at a time. Most of the time, as my name implies, I am purchasing one share at a time.

At this point you could, and probably should, be asking, “Why are you investing at all when you have debt to pay off? You would probably save money if you paid off all of your loans first!” That is a great question, and I applaud your understanding of money if you are thinking that. Here is the problem: I am human, and just paying off debt is BORING! There, I said it.

  1. Glad to have found your blog. Everyone, no matter their age or means, has to start somewhere. I like your blog name, “One Share at a Time,” as that’s how long term stable wealth if often created. If you follow any of the dividend investors online you will see that almost all have been doing it for years. The beauty of creating a passive income stream via dividends is that you can see results (small in the beginning) every single month if you stay consistent and buy regularly even if it’s just one “one share at a time.” This is a marathon and not a sprint. Look forward to following your progress.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words. I really appreciate it. Your absolutely right, I am in a marathon. I will not finish first but I will not finish last. Hopefully it give me a nice foundation for my kids. Thank you again for stopping buy.
