Dividend Investing – 5 Success Strategies for long-term wealth generation

For most of us, the start in dividend investing is definitely not easy. It usually takes years instead of months before we start to experience the benefits of our continuous efforts and dedication to dividend investing.

I’m now 6 years on the journey and recently I realized that more and more new dividend investors started following me.

That’s the reason why this time I would like to spend some time on sharing my learnings. This should avoid you to make some mistakes I made along the way and it’s something you can benefit from.

Maybe needless to say, but dividend investing is not some get rich quick scheme. Hence, you have some time to learn and maybe even make some of your own mistakes along the way.

But it just so much helps if you can build on other people’s learnings already.

That’s why, in today’s video, I’m sharing with you 5 dividend investing tips which I consider successful dividend investing strategies.

It's my desire to retire early via Dividend Growth Investing as a passive income stream. This is not easy and especially when living in Europe. That's why I started this blog and share my journey: to give you a European perspective.

Hi European DGI
Good piece! I like your points.
I’ve been dividend growth investing since 2009 and it has been very rewarding. In 2020 I built up a Tech Portfolio in addition to our Dividend Portfolio. I like to combine dividend growth investing while also being invested in tech growth stocks. Also because of the aspect of future dividend payments. For instance, I wouldn’t be all too surprised to see companies like Facebook or Alphabet making very nice shareholder distributions five to ten years from now.

Great video.

I started with #1 again due to the fact that I have my own car now that comes with different/new expenses (before it was a company car / leasing contract).
