I like ETFs that "pay me" to own them ..
I also like getting an automatic annual "raise" ..
I expect to have growing passive income over time to support my lifestyle ..
I don't like having to experience periodic capital draw downs when markets decline ..
I also want to be diversified across various asset classes ..
I don't want to have to invest ALL my spare time managing my investments ..

The best way to accomplish the above is to hold a "hedged" portfolio of ETFs that
individually have had a "history" of raising their payout on at least an annual basis ..

Current ETF holdings are as follows

BLV = Vanguard Long Term Bond ETF
DVY = 100 ishares Select Dividend ETF
HDV = 75 ishares Core High Dividend ETF
NOBL = 50 Equal Weighted S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats ETF
SDOG = 50 Equal Weighted S&P 500 Sector High Yield ETF
SDY = 100 Dividend Aristocrats ETF
USRT = 160 REITs ETF
VIG = 180 Vanguard Dividend Growth ETF
VYM = 400 Vanguard Dividend ETF
XLU = 28 S&P 500 Utilities ETF

Employ "dynamic hedging" utilizing the mathematically flawed daily and/or weekly
reset leveraged volatility ETFs and ETNs .. SSO TVIX UVXY VXXB ..
Use hedge profits to increase individual ETF holdings ..
When markets are over extended make an "income sandwich"
by shorting SSO equivalent to half the capital invested in the ETFGRO portfolio ..
