The Wealth Builder Carnival #109

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

And now on to the Carnival.


Nick presents The Best Job Search Websites posted at Making It in Today's Economy, saying, "There are a lot of job search websites to choose from, but I sought to highlight the only three I believe most job seekers need--Indeed (for its comprehensiveness), Craigslist (for its local results and hidden diamonds in the rough), and SimplyHired (for its advanced search and filter functionality)."

Theresa Torres presents 6 Tips for Acing Your Next Phone Interview - Hispanic-Today posted at Hispanic Today, saying, "Preparing for a phone interview can greatly improve your chances of getting the job of your dreams. Here are some tips to help you ace that phone interview."

However, if you were hoping for a steep decline you may have to wait a little longer. Here are some key highlights of the bill..."

John Schmoll presents 4 Helpful Free Investment Tools posted at Frugal Rules, saying, "Investing in the stock market can be a challenge for the seasoned investor, much less a newbie investor. By using some free investment tools you can make more informed investment decisions that will benefit your portfolio."

Living Frugally

Liana Arnold presents Q4 2012 Credit Card Landscape Report posted at CardHub.com, saying, "What better way to start off the new year than to take a look at what the credit card industry was doing 4th quarter of the previous year? Boring you say? Maybe so. After all, it's all about numbers - but it is truly informative."

Charles presents Mortgage Points Guide posted at Wallet Hub, saying, "Mortgage shoppers often are bewildered by the dizzying array of fees when comparing offers, and no fee gets more attention than mortgage points. They’re quite simple, really, once you break them down, so let’s demystify them once and for all."

My Money Design presents Our Long Term Financial Goals and How We’ll Meet Them in the New Year posted at My Money Design, saying, "Here’s my assessment of our long term financial goals for the New Year and the steps we need to do to take to make sure we get to where we want to be."


Bryan presents How Much Should I Save Each Month? posted at Gajizmo, saying, "Once the bad habit of overspending is stopped and saving begins, the next question should be, how much do I save each month? The answer depends on your personal financial situation, but here are a few guidelines to fully fund your emergency savings, retirement, and think about short vs. long term needs."
