How in the world is it December already? The end of the year is always such a blur and I just want to be able to slow time down. That's why I'm focusing on reaching financial independence at a young age. Even if time continues to move fast, you aren't having to spend 8+ hrs every day at work. Imagine what you can do with 16+ hours to yourself every day. You have time to build better relationships, volunteer, learn new skills that you've put on the back-burner for years, or anything else that you want. All because you no longer have to be stressed about money or spend all your time and energy at your employer's discretion.
I picked up some more Realty Income earlier this week to help average down my cost basis but other than that my portfolio just continued to churn out some dividends. I've been trying to find some smaller DG candidates as well as some more health-related companies, so I decided to dive into Owens & Minor, Inc. Check out the stock analysis and let me know what you think.
I hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving! Somehow that already seems like it was weeks ago. I'd just like to thank everyone that stopped by, commented, and shared posts from Passive-Income-Pursuit this past week. I'm so thankful for this great blogging community that continues to motivate and inspire me.
