1H 2018 passive income exceeded $96k.

Wednesday, September 12, 2018

Reader says...

I just started reading your blog last week and I am already a fan!

Your passive income is amazing!

Totaling first two quarters for REITs and non-REITs, you have already exceeded $96k!

How old are you now?

AK says...

Welcome to my blog. :)

I am 47 this year.

Reader says...

Oh, I see.

I thought you might be a retiree in your 60s or 70s.

A bit difficult for me to reach your level by 47.

AK says...

When you say you are my fan, it follows that I am your idol.

Honestly, I don't want to be your idol.

Seriously, you should not be my fan.

Don't compare what you have with what I have.

Don't focus on what I have achieved.

Instead, focus on what you can achieve.

Whenever I say,

"If AK can do it, so can you!"

I am referring to achieving financial freedom.

I am not referring to an early retirement from employment.

I am not asking readers to have the same amount of passive income that I have or more.

AK's 1H 2018 passive income exceeded $96K?

So what?

You don't be "kiasu", ok?


Who threw a packet of tissue paper at me?

Who? Who?

In Singapore, a packet of tissue paper is not just a packet of tissue paper hor.

You are amazing to me.
There are a lot of others who are Rich, but you came to me as more a commoner as someone we can relate to.
I am still thrill to read your article.
Simple yet workable and effective in many ways. 谢谢.

I noticed in your previous post that you have several large holdings, like Singtel. How do you decide to put so much into a particular stock and not in others?

Hi NerdLibrarian,

It is about knowing what we want to achieve and getting the right tools.

If you read my past blogs on SingTel and my passive income, you will get an idea why I invest in certain stocks and why the sizing. ;)
