Timeless Articles from the Archives #35

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.


Expat Frugality  - An oxymoron but possible :-)

Estimating The Value Of My House  - Despite the real estate crash, I still like to estimate the value of our house.

The Difference Between Risk and Fear   -   Fear takes over when the absolute loss become large.

College Admissions - What I Consider the "Right Stuff"   - To me, it's not just good grades.


Agility Versus Skill     -  Showing agility is good, demonstrating skill is better, and having both is the best.

Do What You Love and The Money Will Follow - Counterpoint   - Not in my case :-)


Why Do Small Businesses Fail?  - It's not for lack of ideas or passion.

Privilege and Responsibility - With privilege comes responsibility.

Five Signs of Getting Old -  It's not just thinning or graying hair.


I Avoid Financial Advisors with These Characteristics - Here are some of the key misses in my expectations of financial advisors I've met.

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

For more on The Practice of Personal Finance, check back every Wednesday for a new segment.

This is not financial, career, investing, political, retirement or saving advice. Please consult a professional advisor.
