Timeless Articles from the Archives #41

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.


A Retirement Strategy - Die Broke  - I learned about selling our house and buying an annuity from this book.

The New Entrepreneurship - I read this article by Penelope Trunk when I was still working.  She was right about having control over my work and a flexible lifestyle making me happier.  For reference, my approach is to work part time jobs that have very flexible hours.

Risk Allocation In A Wealth Portfolio - I'm still working on reducing my aspirational portion :-)

Having Children When One Is Older - I'm still happy that we had a child when we were older.

Twelve "Best Ever" Financial Tips From MSN Money     -  I thought these were great tips.

Consider More Than One Scenario When Making A Decision   -  Unless, of course, one is always right:-)
Financial Readiness For Early Retirement   - Here are some of the elements that we considered when deciding about early retirement.


Saying Bye Bye to our Mortgage    - Here's why we paid off our mortgage.

Investing for the Next Bull Market   - Some good tips on putting money back into the stock market.

We've Achieved Zero Debt - Paying off our mortgage made us debt free.


Life Extending Habits  - Here how changes in these four areas can reduce the risk of death.

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