Good dividend stocks does not have to only consist of REITs. You can also consider large consumer companies or utility companies that have relatively consistent dividends. Those will help diversify your concentration risk in your portfolio.

I was an engineer before, and I feel joining the CFA community really benefited me in term of job hunting. Apart from having the right skills, having a good network is very important in finding your dream job. good luck

You would need to tell FSMone to sign you a proxy form before you can attend. Make sure the proxy form is submitted to the company so that they know you are coming. If not you will be deny entry

I have been using Yahoo Finance, they are pretty good if you just want to keep track of the current status of your portfolio. But they do include dividend returns

Cash is the lowest return asset but also the most liquid. So do have enough cash for emergency purposes. But beyond that, it is better to start investing in higher return assets like stocks or properties

Starting with blue chip stocks are great. High quality business tends to do well over time. You can definitely start with just one stock, but as you invest, do remember to diversify your portfolio

Depending on your time frame. If you are a long term investor, it is always a good time to start investing. Because as time passes, the timing risk of investing will diminish.

You are your biggest asset, so #1 always invest in yourself to see how you can upgrade your skills and knowledge so that you can have a higher earning potential in the future. #2 Don't overthink your investment, starting is more important than doing it perfectly. #3 Delay your house purchase

Definitively, the beauty for investment income is that there is no limit to how high you can go. While our salary tend to hit a ceiling as we progress in our career.
