Dividend for Starters nominated me for a Liebster Award. What is a Liebster award I thought at first? So I look around on the net and found the meaning of this nice award. It is always an honor to receive an award. I think it is not only excellent for motivation, but it means that readers (or at least one reader) are appreciating the topics I write on. Personally, that is a wonderful feeling. It’s great to feel appreciated. So thank you so much Dividend for Starters!
For accepting the award you need to write a blog post and answer the questions asked. So here I go, these are the questions that DfS asked me, and after there is the list of the 5 bloggers I am going to pass the award on to, and their questions as well.
These were the questions DfS asked me.
Did you try other methods of investing before getting into DGI?
Yes I did some mutual fund investing and some individual stock picking. I had some losses and wins. But overall I wasn’t satisfied. See also About on my Blog. As I wrote on my blog, when I turned 40 I looked at my net worth and I was shocked. This motivated me to get my act together. I started rearranging my portfolio and started with dividend-growth-investing. I realize that I should have started earlier. But I can’t change my past but I can influence my future! And I’m using my Blog is a written account of my journey
What’s your favorite movie?
This is Scent of a woman, with Al Pacino. A really great movie. Yabadabadoo!
If you have a spouse, does he or she support you with this journey?
Yes she’s supporting me all the way. Investing is my hobby, she is supporting me but doesn’t interfere with my decisions. I only invest with my own money.
Which book are you currently reading?
At this moment I’m reading two books. For entertainment Discovery of heaven from Harry Mullish and for my hobby The dividend investor from Rodney Hobson
What’s your opinion about Bitcoin and do you own any?
I do not have any Bitcoin. I think it is way to overvalued these days. I don’t understand Bitcoin much or the process of mining them. And I don’t know if it is really gonna last
