The Wealth Builder Carnival #152

Welcome to the one hundred fifty-second 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.


Justin @ Root of Good presents Snapshot of Root of Good’s Diversification and Asset Allocation posted at Root of Good, saying, "Justin explains the asset allocation in his seven figure investment portfolio. Here's a preview: global diversification spanning the US, Europe, Asia, and Emerging Markets along with a tilt to value and small cap stocks. There's also a slice of alternative investments (real estate) to round out the portfolio."

John Schmoll presents TradeKing Review: An Online Brokerage Worth Considering posted at Frugal Rules, saying, "Investing in the stock market is vital to building wealth and with the variety of options available of where to invest it can be confusing. Choosing a good brokerage that has good offering and low fees can be a great way to help grow your retirement portfolio and get your investing on the right foot."

Bryan Chau presents Time To Take Stock of Your Investment Success - Follow Up posted at Success Pen Pal, saying, "stocks, investing, markets, success, tips, follow-up"

simon elstad presents Is Peer To Peer Lending A Good Investment Idea? posted at Modest Money, saying, "Have you ever let a friend or family member borrow money? That’s a small form of peer to peer lending. There are millions of people out there that want loans, but don’t want to deal with banks. They are increasingly turning to online platforms to acquire the funds. As an investor is buying debt notes worth the risk?"

Living Frugally

Gary presents The Best Time To Buy Anything During The Year posted at Gajizmo, saying, "The holiday shopping season is coming up, but should you buy everything and anything that is on sale now? According to our research, Christmas time is not always the best time to buy stuff, from cars and televisions to furniture and refrigerators, learn what month of the year is best to buy what products and services. You’ll be surprised by what you read."

Nivene presents Nearly Half of Americans Cutting Back for the Holidays posted at CashNetUSA, saying, "Unfortunately for the economic recovery, many Americans are set to cut back on their holiday spending this year. Almost 1 in 2 Americans (46 percent) report they will spend less on the holidays than last year, according to an October 2013 survey conducted by CashNetUSA."


Matt Becker presents What Does Financial Freedom Mean to Me? posted at Mom and Dad Money, saying, "I have a very simple definition of financial freedom that's a little different from the norm. Find out what it means to me and how I plan to achieve it."

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.
