Just for being alive, I earned income from 25 companies!
Another way to put it: These 25 companies are working for me and pay me because I am an owner.
The grand total for January was $982.96. That's an average of $39.32 per company. Not bad.
The big payout this month was a special dividend from Old Republic International (ORI). I love those special dividends. Hopefully they will pay a special dividend sooner than the two years it took since the last one.
I also began seeing a dividend from some of my newer holdings, like Comcast (CMCSA), and Canadian Natural Resources (CNQ). I'm motivated to make those payouts larger than $10 each.
Here's the breakdown.
