January 2018 – Passive Income
January 2018 – Passive Income
Wow February already? January was a fantastic month for us. Our little girl decided to make an appearance. After going to a ultrasound they mentioned that the baby is really small and really hasn’t grown the last week or 2. So they might as well induce the wife to have her. Go get some dinner and we will do it after, exciting times. They thought she was around 6 lbs which would of put her in the intensive care nursery. Luckily she popped out 6 lbs 10 ozs. All good! Feeding like a champ and the wife’s recovering great.
I worked on the site a bit, now you got that s after the http – ( makes it more secure) and fixed the error on our credit score. (house we sold 2 years ago still showed a massive balance) Both of which were on my 2018 game plan. Now let’s get to the income!

December 2017 Purchases
- We Bought 200 Shares of Tahoe Resources. This is a capital gain move, sadly Tahoe doesn’t currently pay a dividend.
- We shuffled up our portfolio and sold hydro one, We added 1000 bucks and started a position in Canadian Utilities.
2 Months in a row we cleared over $1000 in passive income. How cool is that? Of course the credit card bonus pushed this one over. We technically got our first solar panel payment. They checked the meter 3 days after being hooked up. (when they check our meter to bill us) The panels were snow covered and brought in 55 cents in those 3 days.So we didn’t actually get money since the minimum payment is 5 bucks. Good to know everything is all setup and ready to go though! February should see our first real payment. Its crazy writing the income goal down on the page, its a massive jump. 2018 is going to be a great year!
How was your income? I Wish you all the best in 2018. May your dividends be huge and full of raises!
