Timeless Articles from the Archives #34

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" which highlights posts from the same week in 2007-2010.


How To Retire In My Forties - Here were our three must haves.

Ranking One's Net Worth  - One of the most read posts on My Wealth Builder..

The Impact of Inflation  - I calculated the impact of 3 and 5% inflation.

Another Tax Break For Children - Hire One's Own Kids  - Kids cost a lot :-) Might as well get every tax break I can.


Personal Finance Simplification - Brokerage Account Consolidation  - A good plan but I didn't execute it after the higher cost brokerage lowered its fees.

Become A Millionaire  - An example of how compounding interest can help achieve this goal.

Degrees That Lead To A Profession  - With the high cost of a college eduction, getting a job should be a primary objective.

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