Timeless Articles from the Archives #17

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.

Comments I've Received about Early Retirement - I still don't get the question that I think is most important.


Our Approach for Choosing a Contractor - Here are some of the criteria we use.

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