The Wealth Builder Carnival - Sesquicentennial Edition

Welcome to the one hundred fiftieth 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.


Martin Poldma presents How to Write Your First Sales Letter in 9 Steps posted at Success and Personal Development Blog, saying, "This is an article about how to write your very first sales letter, in which I explain the main formula that most top copywriters use to sell their products."

Matthew Bauman presents How NOT to start a blog posted at The Zadoo, saying, "About a month ago I decided that a blog would be a profitable way to spend a few hours per week. My family would be considered "middle class" and a few extra bucks are always welcome. We have scaled back in the last few years, but the vision of escaping to Florida in February is on the wish list. I naturally enjoy spending time on the computer so what a better way to spend a few hours a week then to do something enjoyable to accomplish an item from the family wish list. Win-Win. Not so fast....."


Abdulrasool presents S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats 2013 posted at Top Dividend Stocks, saying, "S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats is a listing of all companies in the S&P 500 Index that have consistently increased dividends each year for the last 25 years. You will find some of America's largest blue-chip companies in this index including AT&T, Chevron, Coca Cola, Johnson & Johnson, McDonalds, Procter & Gamble, Wal-Mart and Walgreen. For the year 2013, the S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats Index had 54 companies that were equally weighted and not favored because of their sizes or market capitalization."


Justin @ Root of Good presents Developing A Retirement Budget posted at Root of Good, saying, "Justin at Root of Good reveals his $32,000 per year retirement budget for a family of five. He explains the process of developing a budget for retirement that is based on your actual spending and what you actually plan to do in retirement (instead of a crazy "80% of pre-retirement income" rule)."

Ward Carson cfp presents Women and Retirement – The Happy 401k posted at The Happy 401k, saying, "Ward Carson is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™. He is the owner of The Happy401k.com and the Managing Partner of Cambridge Financial & Insurance Group. Cambridge provides counsel to corporate clients in the areas of qualified retirement plans and executive/employee benefits. Through TheHappy401k.com, Ward shares valuable insight for sponsors and participants of corporate retirement plans."

Bryan Chau presents How To Maximize Your 401K - All The Way! posted at Success Pen Pal, saying, "401k plans, investing, money, savings, retirement, funds, stocks, strategies, success, etc."

John Schmoll presents Protecting Your Retirement Funds in These Volatile Economic Times posted at Frugal Rules, saying, "Whenever you invest in the stock market, it’s important to be aware of current economic conditions and how they may impact your retirement portfolio as you seek to build wealth that’ll last for the long run."
