My April investment income went down to $96.83 from $98.43 the month before. This is because I didn’t add to my investments and the stock market went down. I won’t be adding to my investments this month either and it looks like the stock market is going down more so my investment income will probably go down again. This is a little frustrating since I was looking forward to getting over the $100 mark but as soon as I’m able to start adding to my investments I should reach the $100 goal.
Disclaimer: This is not my actual investment income. To get this figure I first add up my retirement savings, emergency fund, and any other money I consider permanent savings. What the total of my savings would earn at 6% interest for a month is my monthly investment income. My goal is to get this amount to $1000 a month. If I have $1000 in monthly passive investment income I will be able to retire early.
