The Wealth Builder Carnival #39

Welcome to the thirty-ninth edition of The Wealth Builder Carnival. The purpose of this carnival is to collect articles from the blogosphere on building, preserving and keeping enough wealth for a comfortable retirement. For reference, I have tried to keep the carnival content tightly focused on wealth building and did not include submissions that were off topic. For reading convenience, the posts are listed with a brief summary or comment by the submitter and organized them into seven categories: Earning, Insuring and Protecting, Investing, Living Frugally, Retiring, Saving and Taxes.

And now onto the Carnival:


Dr. Dean presents Nursing Career: Pharmaceutical Sales Rep-An Interview! posted at Dr. Dean's TheMillionaireNurse.com Blog, saying, "Finding the perfect career is key to building wealth. If you aren't happy in your job or it simply doesn't provide for your needs, you may need to take a second look at your path. Here's one to consider."

Insuring and Protecting

Though not very sophisticated, payback can still help you screen for good, solid dividend growth stocks. Once you earn back your investment, some might say you are in a no-lose situation."

Jessica S presents Finance Definitions: Principal posted at MomVesting, saying, "In finance we hear the term "principal" quite a bit -- but we all know we're not talking about our favorite education professional. So when talking personal finance, what is principal?"

The index measures the performance of large cap, blue-chip companies within the S&P 500 that have a market capitalization of at least $3 billion."

Living Frugally
