If you want to know why, then check out my story and learn what’s driving me.
Having said that, let’s point you to some articles to get started.
I hope that helps 🙏

1. You are new to personal finance
If you are generally new to managing your personal finances, then I think it’s best to start with the basics.
Have a look at the following 2 articles:
- Should you pay off debt or invest? | 4 simple steps anyone can follow
- 5 Impactful ideas to maximize your savings
These should get you started quite quickly, because some of the ideas described in there are low-hanging fruit.
2. You are new to dividend growth investing
The same applies to dividend growth investing. If you are interested in this topic, then I assume you are already managing your personal finances quite well.
Having said that, if you are new to dividend investing then I recommend you to check out the following articles:
- How to retire early with dividend stocks [YouTube]?
- How to start investing in Dividend Growth stocks?
- How to build a dividend portfolio? – a dividend portfolio allocation strategy
- How to screen for dividend growth stocks
- What is a good Dividend ETF? – Top 5 & More! | 2021
This should really get you started into the world of dividend investing.
3. You have some experience with dividend growth investing
In that case we can go a bit more advanced. In the below articles I have been sharing some of my knowledge that I have accumulated over the last 6 years.
- How to average down stocks when share prices are falling?

5. You are curious for articles that make me proud
I would also like to share with you few articles that I’m most proud of.
Both of these articles took me a lot of time to compile and are unique in its own sense:

6. You want to know what’s on my mind
Besides this I’m also posting every Sunday my 5-Bullet Sunday. This is a weekly blog post with 5 topics that were on my mind during the week.
Those topics are mostly related to Financial Independence and Dividend Growth Investing, but sometimes also about something else. An overview of the series can be found HERE
7. You want to also hear me talk about investing
You can still find me active in two other places.
It is a weekly show with a strong European flavor that get’s released every weekend. We typically discuss:
- the news of the week,
- a main topic related to dividend investing,
- and we answer questions from the community
If you haven’t tried it yet, then please check it out. Over 1000’s of listeners are tuning in every week.
Feel also free to submit your questions so that we can address it on-air. You can do this by emailing us at [dividendtalk AT gmail DOT com].
Last but not least, I’m also present on YouTube.
I try to post a video on a regular basis, but my blog get’s priority when I’m short in time.
Creating videos on YouTube is something that I like, because it gives me the opportunity to be more visual and dive into some of the annual reports.
Hence, check it out as well. Subscribing to the channel would also mean the world to me, because I’m trying to get to 1000 subscribers this year.
I started my blog late December 2019, so the amount of content is still in an early stage. Therefore I will maintain this page going forward as I intend to add more and more content which I am considering foundational.
If you af any questions, please let me know via the comment section or get in touch with me.
Sometimes this can trigger me to prioritize a future topic for another.
