The Wealth Builder Carnival #107 - New Year's Day Edition

Welcome to the one hundred seventh 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.


Jason presents How to Ask Your Boss for a Raise posted at WorkSaveLive, saying, "One of the most uncomfortable work-related missions is having to ask your boss for a raise. This is especially problematic now, since so many employers are facing tight budgets and are very reluctant to give raises in general."


Dividends4Life presents This Stock Is Flying High With Another Dividend Increase posted at Dividend Growth Stocks, saying, "In March 1910, William bought Heath's shipyard in Washington State on the Duwamish River. This later became his first factory. Today this company is among the largest global aircraft manufacturers, and the third largest aerospace and defense contractor in the world based on defense-related revenue. Who is this company? It is..."

Dustin Small presents What is the difference between Price and Value? posted at Stockodo, saying, "One very common misconception that newcomers have to Value Investing is the difference between the price of the stock and what we call it's underlying or "intrinsic" value. In this article I take an in depth look at the difference between the two and try to explain it in terms understandable by novice investors."

Living Frugally

John Kiernan presents Justin Bieber Prepaid Card Evaluation posted at CardHub.com, saying, "A relationship between Justin Bieber and BillMyParents seems like just another case of a celebrity trying to pull a fast one and endorse a financial product not because it’s the best on the market, but rather because the endorsement deal provides the best financial terms for them. How does this product measure up? - Will this really help you control your wealth building?"

Bryan presents How To Get Out of A Cell Phone Contract Without Paying Termination Fees posted at Gajizmo, saying, "Fees - they are the bane of our existence as consumers. Technically, we don\'t get anything for the money we spend on fees, and they are just an additional tax companies use to increase earnings. Well, what if you want to get out of your phone contract due to bad service or loss of employment, but don\'t want to pay early termination fees? We cover the many tactics you can use to try to get out of these fees, as well as some tips on finding the best cell service."

My Money Design presents Goal Setting Activities for Your Personal Finances posted at My Money Design, saying, "To understand what you want, expand your financial perspective through goal setting activities that help you figure out how you feel about your money."

John Schmoll presents Saving Money with Comparison Shopping posted at Frugal Rules, saying, "There are many ways you can save while shopping for various items. Comparison Shopping is one angle you can take to make sure you get the best price. This can be done through looking at ads, looking online, or using your smartphone."


Super Saver presents Retirement Financials - Perception versus Reality posted at My Wealth Builder, saying, "Here are five misconceptions Americans have about retirement financial situations."

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.
