The following is an excerpt from the interview that I had with Kanwal. The full interview can be found at the Simply Investing website.
I recently had the honour of interviewing the blogger behind the awesome blog Passive-Income-Pursuit!
Passive Income Pursuit has been blogging since 2011 and his blog covers my favorite topic, dividend investing! So I invited him to share his investing knowledge and experience with us.
Kanwal: Tell me a little bit about yourself and your blog.
Passive Income Pursuit: I was laid off in January 2009, and while it was frustrating at the time, as my unemployment period continued on I realized there's so much more to go after in life than being stuck in an office. I used that time to improve my relationships, my body, and continue to learn. Before then the thought of retiring at sometime other than the traditional retirement age never crossed my mind. I just didn't think it was possible until I started reading and learning about investing and luckily came across dividend growth investing. I now feel so much more in control of my finances and the end game of financial independence is in sight.
Passive-Income-Pursuit.com serves two purposes. One is to be a live journal chronicling my investing strategy. I think the best part about this is that it allows me to look back and see why it is I made a purchase or sell. One of the biggest factors with investment success is to avoid the big mistakes. I've made my fair share, but my blog lets me go back in time to see why I made the decision and correct the errors in my thinking. The second purpose for my blog is to help teach and motivate others. I've met several people that have started to take control of their own investing because of my blog and I just hope to continue helping others. The funny thing is I get inspired by my readers probably more than they do from me.
