The Wealth Builder Carnival #111

Welcome to the one hundred eleventh 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.


Susan Wowe presents Make Money Online | A Free $10 Today posted at Online Business - Make Money Online, saying, "Every penny counts, especially if it is from a passive income. Spend little time to receive this $10 in your account all free today."

Insuring and Protecting

Bryan presents Compare Car Insurance posted at My Best Car Insurance 101, saying, "Liability car insurance is required by law in most states, but what about comprehensive, collision, gap, and under or uninsured motorist coverage? Do you know about all the coverage options available and how you should go about comparing policies, companies, and rates to lower your costs? This article is to help you maneuver the industry and buy the best and cheapest insurance coverage."

Super Saver presents The Value of Health Insurance posted at My Wealth Builder, saying, "In 2013, our medical insurance premium will more than pay for itself. I expect the billed amount for my medical treatments to exceed 50% of our annual living expenses. My out-of-pocket costs will only be a few hundred dollars."


Bryan presents Vanguard vs Fidelity posted at Gajizmo, saying, "Early on, investors learn they can't time the markets, so why should passive investors try to? Chances are, you have retirement funds in Vanguard or Fidelity mutual funds, so why not determine which company is the best for the rest of your investments. We compare the pros and cons of each company for your benefit."

My Money Design presents P2P Investing Denied! What Should be My Next Passive Income Ambition? posted at My Money Design, saying, "The tires on my P2P investing efforts quickly went flat last week when I discovered some very important information - Michigan doesn't allow it!"

Dividends4Life presents 12 Dividend Stocks Growing Their Yield posted at Dividend Growth Stocks, saying, "Investing in dividend growth stocks is a long-term proposition. One of the beauties of following a dividend growth strategy is that you don't have to watch your portfolio or the market on a daily basis. For the most part, daily, monthly and yearly movements are just noise in the system. Here are my income portfolio's top and bottom 5 performers for the year, through December 31, 2012..."

John Schmoll presents How to Take the Emotion Out of Investing posted at Frugal Rules, saying, "The stock market is driven largely by emotion, some say upwards of 90%. If you have a solid investment plan though you can easily separate the emotions from the day to day activity of your investments."
