2015 Goals Progress

On my 9/8/2015 post, I had written that the point I can retire is when my passive income I receive exceeds my expenses.  And that amount is $3,000 per month in passive income.  Therefore, my goal at that time of the post was to receive $36,000 in dividends by 2041.  I had also posted a breakdown of target dividend income goals for each year from 2015 to 2041, which can be found here.

2015 Passive Income Coverage

My ultimate goal is to be able to retire by the age of 56, which will be in 2041.  As I've mentioned from the very beginning and in the "About Me" page of my site, my strategy to reach early retirement is to have multiple streams of income from interest, dividends, and rental income.  The point at which I can retire is when my passive income exceeds my expenses.  Therefore, I plan on posting at the end of every year the amount of expenses that is covered by the passive income I have received.

Since interest income can easily change with changes in interest rate and the principal balance in a bank account, I will only consider for purposes of my "Passive Income Coverage" posts my passive income from dividends and rental income.

Below are my dividends and rental income for 2015:
