The Wealth Builder Carnival #148

Welcome to the one hundred forty-eighth 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.

This week, Blog Carnival had some technical difficulties resulting in fewer than normal submissions.

And now on to the Carnival.


Martin Poldma presents The Secret Behind Increasing the Sales of Your Business posted at Success and Personal Development Blog, saying, "In this article I talk about the secret that most top salesman use to increase their turnovers and revenue."

Insuring and Protecting

Gary presents How Much Life Insurance Do I Need? posted at MyLifeInsuranceQuotes123.com, saying, "Term life insurance is cheap, but why overpay for more coverage than you need? Or worse, accidentally under-insure yourself and put your family’s financial future in jeopardy? In this guide, we discuss the factors to consider when calculating how much life insurance you need."


Matt Becker presents Start Investing Now, Even if You Stink posted at Mom and Dad Money, saying, "Many people avoid investing out of fear. They fear doing something wrong and losing all of their money. But the truth is that those first few years of returns are relatively unimportant to your final result. So get started today, even if you don't know what you're doing. The benefits of starting far outweigh the risks of getting something wrong."

John Schmoll presents Reasons Why You Should Start Investing For The Long Run posted at Frugal Rules, saying, "Many people want to go for the quick buck when it comes to investing. However, a long term approach in generally best if you’re looking to build wealth and grow a decent retirement portfolio that will last."

Mark Hanna presents Why Dividend Investing is Perfect for New Parents posted at Debt, Dividends, & Diversions, saying, "4 points for why new parents should think about getting started with dividend investing: simplicity, time required, the ability to start small, and that it supports your kids as much as you."


Justin @ Root of Good presents $150,000 Income, $150 Income Tax posted at Root of Good, saying, "Justin at Root of Good reveals how his household made $150,000 and paid only $150 in income taxes through a combination of contributions to workplace savings plans and IRA's. Tax efficient investing and tax loss harvesting also played a key role in keeping his income taxes at 0.1%."
