Timeless Articles from the Archives #12

It's been over four years since I started My Wealth Builder. As I think about topics to write , I often remember, "I've written about that before," and decide to find a new topic. However, since many principles of personal finance are timeless, I want to include them in a recent post on My Wealth Builder. Therefore, I have started a series called "Timeless Articles from the Archives" that will highlight posts from the same week in 2006-2009.


Investing 101 - Managing Risk Successfully - To successfully build wealth, one needs to understand the concept of risk and manage it well. Here are my working definitions for risk and how I manage risk.

Six Steps to Creating Personal Wealth - Here are the six steps I used.

Afraid Of Investing In The Stock Market? - Here's how I get over my fear.

A Safe Car for a New Driver - My plans for a new teenage driver in our family.

Our Journey To Financial Freedom #5 - Setting Goals, Developing Plans and Tracking Progress - The fifth in the financial freedom series.


What I Look for in an Interview - Here were three of my criteria when I was a hiring manager.

Working for Perks - An idea for retirees who are interested in working.

How Bear Markets Can Help Grow Savings - A silver lining to the recent bear market for those just starting to invest.

Reducing Clutter - Shed and Shred Approach - A great idea that has taken longer than expected.

To me, the content of these posts are still relevant today and were worth reading again.
