The Wealth Builder Carnival #18

Welcome to eighteenth 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, I have listed the posts with brief summaries, often by the author, and organized them into seven categories: Earning, Investing, Insuring and Protecting, Living Frugally, Retiring, Saving and Taxes.

And now onto the Carnival:


The Inner View of Your Interview by Ron Haynes – Excerpt - "The Inner View of Your Interview by Ron Haynes seeks to help those being interviewed to see into the mind of the interviewer in order to ace their interview."

Insuring and Protecting

Do You Have Alien Abduction Insurance? - "You read the title correctly … I want to know if you have Alien Abduction Insurance?!"

Do You Need Home Office Insurance? - "Does your small home business need insurance? This article will help you decide."


12 Stocks Not Missing Their Opportunity To Increase Dividends - "In everything we do, we always want to be the best or be associated with the best. You never hear fans yelling, ‘We’re number 2, we’re number 2″, while holding two fingers in the air. The same is true when selecting dividend stocks. One attribute of the very best dividend stocks is a long history of consecutive dividend increases."

Why I Think Gold is a Loser Investment - "Seems to me that the only people that get wealthy when you buy physical gold are the people that sell it to you and those who buy it from you."

Rosland Capital, Gold Coins, IRAs and ETFs. Oh My! - "An overview of some of the ways to invest in gold for your IRA."

What are Stock Market Indices and Why Do I Care? - "Let’s look at the definition of stock market indices, the indices available, and what indices can do for your investments."

Asset Allocation, Explained - "Asset allocation is so important and simple to do, so it make sense to spend just a tiny bit of time to explain what it actually is for everybody's benefit."

Living Frugally

Two Rules To Financial Success - "Two simple rules to finding financial success."


Social Security Benefits for your Spouse - "You may know about receiving social security benefits for yourself when you retire. But did you know that when you retire, your spouse also receives benefits?"


Choosing a College 529 Plan - "Since we plan to cover our daughter's college education, we looked into college savings options not long after she arrived."


Getting Tax Breaks from Paying for College - "Even if you've shelled out a ton of money for college, the government does help out a little. Several tax deductions and credits can save you years of payments."

When You May Want to File an Optional Tax Return - "This is a must-read for anyone who isn't required to file a tax return - you still may want to."

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.
