Bert and Lanny chronicle their journey to financial freedom via the 1-2 punch of dividend reinvesting and frugal living. They also have a YouTube channel they started a few months that I highly recommend.
Keith has been investing in dividend paying companies since the Great Recession. I recall when I first followed him a few years back all of his holdings were in the green which I thought was remarkable. He has a great long-term mindset and makes purchases every month like clockwork to take advantage of dollar cost averaging.
