Earning New Dividends

I just received new dividend from Livingston International Income Fund (LIV.UN) and Methanex Corporation (MX). I earn one extra stock of LIV.UN and another one of MX. And I earn an extra 14$ in cash to pay off my credit line. I really can pay off the interest of a 5 000$ credit line following Derek Foster strategy as he explains in his latest book Money for Nothing. Now, knowing that, will I be able to follow his strategy regarding optons?

I previously wrote that I began to understand the "options strategy", but really, I find it still difficult. I once call the Options department of TD Waterhouse. I spoke to an Indian I believe. Cute accent, good explanations. But in date of today, I find it still difficult. Would I be able to live from my dividend one day? And no siminar are being offer regarding options in the Montreal area. So what do I do now? :)

I am officially trying to make money online

Why it’s cool? Because with Gomez, my computer is doing all the work for me. And I have absolutely had nothing to do. It’s like Money for Nothing of you know who kind of deal! Basically, with Gomez PEER users get paid while their computer is connected to the Internet. It’s possible to earn money even when you’re not actually actively surfing the Internet. Like me right now.

The only thing that is needed is to download software. And the program is really easy to download. It’s work with Windows 2000/NT/XP/2003.

Once the download is completed, it’s taking up to 14 days to get fully registered in order to earn cash. I download the software about 4 days ago. I didn’t how it works, but than, I register my user name and the type of connection I am using for the Internet in a Window that appears. Starting from there, the process began. It’s possible to see the earnings in real time. For 120 minutes I had been connected to the Internet, I earn 0.01 cent. This, of course is really nothing at all. But the concept is really interesting. From the search I did on Gomez PEER, some people consider it as a SpyWare. But I install the Gomez PEER program on my laptop in which I have Kaspersky Internet Security, all new from this year, and nothing happen, and I run updates and virus searches quite often.

My account status with Gomez PEER is still Pending so I don’t know if I will ever be able to touch that 1 cent I already earn from the program lol. But even in the meantime, I let the software run. It doesn’t even slow down my laptop – which is not that new – I have the same machine since, I think 2005. Trying to make money online is fun fun fun. After reading this post, if you decide to give Gomez a try, don't forget my referral: JulieSky.

I now have a tax-free savings account

I was quite busy this week as I try to figure out a plan to make things better for me. I realize – but too lately, that I have invested too much in mutual funds. But I believe it was something I had to figure out by myself. It took be time and several reading if DF books. However, I do not regret any attends I made.

I finally read Money for Nothing of DF. At first, the reading was difficult, but I bring the book at work with me to read over again and some guy notice I was reading and come to me, asking what I was reading. At work, it’s aloud to read a book when do not received calls, but we are not allowed to magazines. And recently, we are not receiving as much calls as usual. I just hope I won’t loose my job.

Anyway, I show him the book and he asked me if I had money invested in stocks. I told him that no, that I was only reading the book for fun, telling him that the author was pretty good and that he had self-published 2 other one before this one and so on. I never told anyone about my investments I do not plan to do so. No one knows about my 50 000$. Let say I do not talk to others about my money. I prefer not too and its part of the reason why I prefer to blog anonymously and just to have fun with it by my own. And I have to say, I would look pretty stupid if I would go out about it, as my 3 jobs pay, 10.68$, 12$ and 10$ per hour.

Earlier this week, I open a tax-free savings account at RBC and I transfer some of my mutual funds in there. I was quite happy to learn that it’s possible to reinvest the amount of money I could withdraw from the savings account. It’s a huge benefit. But knowing how much I am paying in taxes, I really needed something like this at this time as my overall earnings before taxes make it around 43 000$. It’s not that much, but for me, it’s a lot. And it might be a lot for the government too as I expect to be paying extra taxes on this salary, unless I invest in my 2008 RRSP.

As usual, I did not invest in a month-to-month basis in my RRSP. With my terrible job situation, I prefer, as always, to wait at the beginning of the New Year. And with all the investments I made this year, I do not have extra money to invest in my RRSP. At this point, I realized I might have done my move too quick in the savings account. The issue being that if I do not invest the max of my limit for the 2008 RRSP, I will probably have to pay extra in taxes. And I currently do not have a penny left to pay on taxes.

I consider moving some of my non RRSP mutual funds into my 2008 RRSP.

Thank you
