  1. Hi Dividend Hawk

    Some interesting links here, I have already read some of them, but some new ones also.

    It's interesting to follow investors in other countries (even if I haven't heard the names of most of the non US companies). Also you seem to have built up a substantial portfolio, do you have any idea when you may reach Financial Independence?

    1. Hi FI UK

      My goal is to achieve financial independence in 2025, the time will show if this will happen.

      Thanks for stopping by!
