      My Personal Financial Resolutions for 2019:

      • Bring my total Investment portfolio value to around $50k or more by end of year
      • Deriving a total dividend yield of around 6 to 7% p.a distributed in quarters ($3,500 cash yield every year)
      • Optimise my REIT portfolio to model the index better so it's more diversified
      • Continually contribute my RSP between $500 to $1000 every month
      • Ensure our Joint Account with my other half continues to grow well (and put at a better Yield location rather than the 1% p.a now) Saw a 2.02% savings account model type (even better than SSB)
      • Buy 2 x Growth stock during the market crash (when it happens)

      Total Returns = Capital Gains (growth stock) + Dividend Yield (REITs)

      Other side resolutions:

      • Grow the Seedly community here while our team also grows! And become Singapore's largest personal finance community centered on the mission to make smarter decisions!
      • Donate some % of my income to charity I believe in (right now it's the Brain Tumour Society Singapore)
      • Lose 10kg and win the weight loss challenge at work - Total pot is worth $1k LOL
      • Try the Keto diet lol.

      I will be documenting my investment journey here on my Seedly profile, so do join me here:

      My personal finance resolutions for 2019:

      1. Learn to self pick REITS and low cash high potential equity via direct investment as first steps to build passive income stream.

      2. Sign up more classes to upskill / upgrade for better jobs / more income.

      3. Find alternative income stream to save more for better cash flow to invest to reach goal #1 faster.

      4. eXcercise and food control to lose 10kg! :P

      What's yours ? Any suggestions to reach all the above in plan ? :)

      Since we "Never plan to fail but fail to plan!" - Let's work towards our goals by first start planning !!!

      Cheers! Merry Christmas and Happy 2019!
