The Wealth Builder Carnival #145

Welcome to the one hundred forty-fifth 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.


Shelby Martin presents 5 Nanny Expenses Your Employer Should Cover posted at GoNannies.com Blog, saying, "For some nannies, especially those newer to the field, it can be a little tough to bring up money with an employer."

Martin Poldma presents How to Start a Business With No Ideas and No Money posted at Success and Personal Development Blog, saying, "Here is a great post I recently wrote on how to start a new business, even if you have no ideas and no money at the time. I give an explanation of how 2 great entrepreneurs did it in their lives."


Bryan Chau presents Don’t Shun From Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) posted at Success Pen Pal, saying, "exchange-traded funds, ETFs, investing, business, wealth, retirement, success, market indexes, etc."

Living Frugally

John Schmoll presents A Pumpkin Costs What?!: 4 Fun and Frugal Fall Activities posted at Frugal Rules, saying, "If you’re like our family, we don’t want to spend $150 to get into a park to buy a pumpkin. I share some of our favorite frugal ways to celebrate the season and still have fun in the process."

Theresa Torres presents The Secrets to Job Searching on a Small Budget posted at Simply Hired Blog, saying, "The hidden costs of looking for a job can add up if you're not careful, so here are a few tips to help you along the way."


Matt Becker presents Roth IRA as an Emergency Fund - Is it a Good Idea? posted at Mom and Dad Money, saying, "The concept of using your Roth IRA as an emergency fund is one I find incredibly interesting, mostly because of the mental or behavioral considerations. From a purely technical standpoint, it can make a lot of sense. But from a behavioral standpoint, it can be dangerous when you start mixing your retirement savings with other purposes. Today I'd like to explore some of the strengths and weaknesses of taking this approach."

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.
