The Wealth Builder Carnival #12

Welcome to twelfth edition of The Wealth Builder Carnival. The purpose of this carnival is to collect articles from the blogosphere on building, preserving and keeping enough wealth for a comfortable retirement. For reference, I have tried to keep the carnival content tightly focused on wealth building and did not include submissions that were off topic.

For reading convenience, I have listed the posts with brief summaries by the authors and organized them into seven categories: Earning, Investing, Insuring and Protecting, Living Frugally, Retiring, Saving and Taxes.

And now onto the Carnival:


Make Money Buying and Reselling Things You Know About! - "A great suggestion for earning some extra money."

Get off Your A** and Follow Through with your Business Idea - "There are too many people out there with fantastic ideas that don't do a thing with them - this is their wake up call!"

Insuring and Protecting

That's gross! Why home insurance won't pay for disgusting problems - "Rats, mold, bed bugs? Here's why home insurance won't pay, and some exceptions to the rules."


12 Stocks Sending A Strong Message With Higher Dividends - "One of the many reasons I like dividend stocks is because they provide continuous feedback. As time passes, dividend investors see their income grow steadily. You don’t have to wait five to ten years to determine if the strategy is working. Each dividend and dividend increase provides reassurance that the strategy is working."

Types of Annuities: Annuity Definitions - "What are the differences between the various types of annuities? Which ones are useful, and which ones are a raw deal?"

How To Teach Your Kids The Concept Of Investing - "How do you get your kids interested with personal finance so they can grow up with a better foundation for how to handle money?"

Worst. Trade. EVER! … - "CNBC has been running a great segment on the Worst Trade Ever for industry leaders like Warren Buffett and Bill Gross. Hence, Darwin has shared his horrendous investments from his 20s; share yours as well."

Balancing Risk Versus Reward Through Asset Allocation with Terry Vaughan Of Hottinger Asset Management Canada - "Whether you’re paying someone to actively manage your portfolio or if you’re managing it yourself, what you need to figure out is the amount of risk you can tolerate and then based on your level of risk tolerance, create a portfolio with an optimal mix of asset classes that will maximize returns and minimize risk."

Tax FREE Money Market Mutual Funds! - "Most astute investors are aware of municipal mutual funds also known as MUNIs. These funds invest in term debts issued by various state and local governments. In general dividends and gains from muni funds are exempt from federal as well as state taxes ..."

Your Mutual Fund Investment Portfolio: How Many Funds Should You Own? - "Do you own too many mutual funds?"

Living Frugally

New Car Buying Myths - "Get the best deal, NOT the best price on a new car. Understand the hidden myths."


FINANCIAL SATISFACTION; Now and Later - "Learn to maintain an attitude of 'plenty' and your WEALTH will multiply. Your focus and attitude are directly related to your wealth."


How Much to Save - THE NUMBER - "How much should one save from every paycheck? Our number was 20%."


5 Steps To Getting A Tax Rebate - "Are you due a tax rebate? Our guide will help you claim your tax refund."

New IRS Rules for Investors - "As if investing isn't already tough enough..."

That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of The Wealth Builder Carnival using our carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.
