Timeless Articles from the Archives #19

It's been over four years since I started My Wealth Builder. As I think about topics to write , I often remember, "I've written about that before," and decide to find a new topic. However, since many principles of personal finance are timeless, I want to include them in a recent post on My Wealth Builder. Therefore, I have started a series called "Timeless Articles from the Archives" that will highlight posts from the same week in 2006-2009.


My Wealth Builder – Goal Setting - Some goal statements are more effective. Here are some examples.

Do It Yourself and Save Money - Here’s the process I following for do-it-myself projects.

How Much Allowance to Give - Here are my thoughts on giving an allowance, which we haven't started yet.


My Quick Reference For Financial Success - Here are five points I think have helped us to be successful at personal finance.

Jonathan Clements On Making One's Kids Financially Savvy - I took away six points to include in our daughter's financial education.


Be the Go-To Guy - A simple strategy to keep one's job even during tough economic times.

Educating for the Future - I'd like to see problem solving and money management added to the curriculum.


Giving Saving Priority over Spending - Saving first helps us manage our spending.

Strategies for Building Wealth and Retiring Early - These were a couple of common themes when I compared notes with another early retiree.

To me, the content of these posts are still relevant today and worth reading again.

For more on The Practice of Personal Finance, check back every Wednesday for a new segment.

This is not financial, career, education, parenting, retirement or saving advice. Please consult a professional advisor.
