The Wealth Builder Carnival #104

Welcome to the one hundred fourth 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 into seven categories: Earning, Insuring and Protecting, Investing, Living Frugally, Retiring, Saving and Taxes.

And now on to the Carnival.


Theresa Torres presents 6 Helpful Tips for Lowering Common Business Expenses - Hispanic-Today posted at Hispanic Today, saying, "If you're looking for ways to cut back on your business expenses, here are some areas where you can manage your spending better."

Super Saver presents Choosing the Harder Right for a College Major posted at My Wealth Builder, saying, "Back when we were in our teens, my spouse and I chose college majors that would lead to a good paying job."


Dividends4Life presents This Company Is Spicing Up Its Dividend With Another Increase posted at Dividend Growth Stocks, saying, "The company that started in one room and a cellar, now has 7,500 employees and annual revenue of over $3.5 billion dollars. You may not of heard of the company, but the cook in your family will be very familiar with its products. Who is the company? It is..."

Living Frugally

harry campbell presents Review of my Car2go Car Sharing Experience posted at Your Personal Finance Pro - Personal Financial Advice for Young Professionals, saying, "Although Car2go hasn’t reached every major city yet, there is probably some type of car sharing service available in your local metropolitan. Whether it’s Zipcar or some other service, the idea of car sharing has really taken off over the past couple years. I’m pretty intrigued by the whole idea because less cars on the road is better for the environment and traffic congestion. This is pretty important for a city like San Diego with millions of people and no viable public transportation options."

Charles presents How to Buy a House posted at Wallet Hub, saying, "Whether you are ready to buy a home or just sticking a toe in the real estate water, it’s never too early to start doing your homework. Buying a home can seem overwhelming, so let’s break it down into a series of steps, and take them one at a time."

John Schmoll presents How to Slash Years Off the Life of Your Mortgage posted at Frugal Rules, saying, "Buying a house is one of the largest purchases many people will make. Unfortunately many of us have to finance the purchase and repay for many years. There are a number of ways though that you can reduce the life of the mortgage as well as lower the amount you end up paying."


Sara Stanich presents Tax Planning for Beginners posted at Cultivating Wealth, saying, "Tax planning sounds complicated, but there are four basic things you should probably be doing."

That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of The Wealth Builder Carnival using our carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.
