The Wealth Builder Carnival #133

Welcome to the one hundred thirty-third 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.


Bryan presents Jobs That Require No Experience posted at Gajizmo, saying, "Similar to the chicken and the egg paradox of which came first, getting a job without experience can be difficult, but you need to get a job in order to earn experience. This can be especially frustrating for new graduates or the recently unemployed looking to make a career change. Here are the best jobs that require no experience."

Insuring and Protecting

John Schmoll presents Ways to Save Money on Health Care if You are Uninsured or Underinsured posted at Frugal Rules, saying, "Health care costs are no doubt out of hand. However, with some diligent planning and wise decision making you can get many of your health care needs taken care of and save money in the process."


Dividends4Life presents 5 Dividend Stocks Working Even When I’m Not posted at Dividend Growth Stocks, saying, "This past week I have been vacationing hundreds of miles from my home. As with most vacations, I have not done much work this week. However, a quick check of my brokerage account shows that my Dividend Growth Stocks have been very busy this week. It is nice to know my income portfolio never takes a day off. What’s even better is the portfolio is frequently getting a raise through higher cash dividend payments."

Jason Hull presents The Stock Market is Irrational. Does This Mean You Can Take Advantage of It? posted at Hull Financial Planning, saying, "Lots of finance professionals like to cite the Efficient Market Hypothesis (EMH) as a catch-all explanation for why the markets move the way they do. The problem is that our irrational behaviors also drive the stock market. Therefore, there are inefficiencies in the market, but can *you*, the individual investor, take advantage of those inefficiencies?"

Living Frugally

Khaleef @ Fat Guy Skinny Wallet presents We Paid Off A Credit Card This Month…But Does It Count? posted at Fat Guy Skinny Wallet, saying, "We Paid Off Our Credit Card, but of course there’s a twist. Find out how we did it, and what happened to take away from our celebration."

Theresa Torres presents How to Save Money While Traveling posted at CreditDonkey.com Tips, saying, "By following these tips on your vacation, you can save a little extra money that you can use on your next travel."

Khaleef @ KNS Financial presents A Budget Account: The Key To Protecting Your Emergency Fund posted at Faithful With A Few, saying, "A budget account can mean the difference between a secure financial household and one that is in chaos. Find out what it is and how you can start one!"


Bryce Fowler presents What’s Your Number? posted at Save and Conquer, saying, "Many people have no idea of how much money they will need to have saved when they retire in order to maintain their current lifestyle. It is not difficult to define your retirement number, but you must answer a few questions and make a few assumptions."


Super Saver presents A Tax on the 30% posted at My Wealth Builder, saying, "The Affordable Healthcare act will be a tax on the young and healthy that do not currently have health insurance."

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.
