Carnival Highlights For The Week #11

Here are some of the posts I like from Carnivals of the past week.

The Investors Blog Network (IBN) Festival #5 The Investors Blog Network (IBN) Festival #5 is organized by The BioHealth Investor.My Festival choice by Breaking the Shackles of the 9 to 5 on the Anatomy of a Stock Trade: Entry Techniques. This is a good post on the technical trading aspects on buying, managing risk and exiting a position in a stock.
The Festival of Frugality #71 is hosted by Money, Matter, and More Musings.My Festival pick is Frugal vs. Cheap posted at Money Walks. This post is an excellent discussion of the concepts with examples showing the difference.
The Cavalcade of Risk # 24 is at The Digerati Life.This is an excellent Carnival, with many great articles. I narrowed my Carnival selections to the following two.
The first is by Brazen Careerist tells us that You Don’t Need To Love Risk-Taking To Start Your Own Business. I like the key points in this post: Start with existing skills and assets, be flexible, find a partner (mentor), focus on what's important and have a positive attitude.
The second is by Personal Finance Advice which tells us about Understanding Disability Income Insurance. This post is an excellent detailed introduction to disability income insurance, which is more likely to be needed more than life insurance during one's working years.
The Carnival of Financial Planning #2 is hosted by The Skilled Investor Blog.My Carnival pick is Stocks Vs Real Estate, Winning Investment Strategies posted at The Digerati Life, which compares six areas of consideration when comparing the stocks to real estate. Her post convinced me that the real estate investment practice of personally buying and renting property to a tenant should be considered a small business instead of an "investment," since it may require frequent effort to have a positive return.

I hope you enjoy reading these Carnivals and finding ideas you can use.
Check back on Saturday for the next Reflections and Musings segment.
