Tall Investing is my personal journey to build passive income through dividend growth investing.
As a 30 something in the US, I began to realize that retirement might be further away than ever. Uncle Sam is likely to be far less generous in social security payments by the time I will reach 65, pensions are by and large a thing of the past and savings accounts pay about as much as the mattress you hide your money under does.
Through several months of research (see Resources) I came to the conclusion that dividend growth investing fitted my needs, interest and risk appetite.
So what is dividend growth investing (DGI)?
Wikipedia gives a crisp definition of DGI – a strategy that involves investing in company shares according to the future dividends forecast to be paid.
I wrote a post which goes into further detail on the concept of DGI – and why I like it so much.
After about two years of investing I decided to launch this site to share my journey, connect with like minded people, and keep myself honest and on track. Each month I research, analyze and buy shares in companies that pay dividends. When deciding whether to add a company to my portfolio, I like to see a steady and growing dividend pay-out.
Over time the sum of all these dividends add up to a steady and growing dividend income stream – supplementing my regular earnings. In the long run this passive dividend income will be a significant part of my retirement income.
I choose the name ‘Tall Investing’ because as a 6 ft 6 guy I hope to be done growing physically… time to reach new financial heights!
