The Wealth Builder Carnival #66

Welcome to the sixty-sixth 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 onto the Carnival:


misst presents How Anyone Can Create Passive Income posted at Prairie Eco-Thrifter, saying, "Typically, passive income is portrayed as a device for the rich to get richer. Those that have the money invest in passive investments such as rental units, property, big businesses, or large amounts of stocks that yield dividends. Each one of these investments can provide an excellent income with very little amounts of work, but they also need a large amount of up-front cash! So, how in the world do average Joes begin to earn a passive income?"

Super Saver presents My Career Turning Point posted at My Wealth Builder, saying, "The first twelve years of my career were mediocre at best. I was doing good work and I had advanced the required one level to maintain employment. I was definitely a journeyman. Four years later, I was promoted to a first line manager. Three years after that I was promoted to the next level, which was part of the top 5% of our organization, and. I was able to take early retirement from this position seven years later. Here's what I changed."


Dividends4Life presents 24 Stocks Growing Their Cash Dividends posted at Dividend Growth Stocks, saying, "Dividend growth investing in its classic form focuses on identifying solid companies with a long record of growing their dividends each year; and an expectation that they will continue to do so into the future. The focus is not solely on yield but a combination of yield and dividend growth. Often it is the lower yield, higher growth, security that will provide the best return over time."

Dividend Growth Investor presents Dividend investing for monthly income posted at Dividend Growth Investor, saying, "Many novice investors are focusing on stocks that pay monthly dividends. However, by laddering dividend stocks with different payout dates, investors can generate a dividend stream of income every month."

Living Frugally

Dr. Dean presents A Valentine’s Day: Make A Choice! posted at Dr. Dean's TheMillionaireNurse.com Blog, saying, "Just like Christmas, it’s easy to let commercialization and materialism ruin a beautiful idea. Don’t stress your relationship over this over-hyped holiday. Now-go make love not war!"


Paul Vachon presents Key to Saving Money is Controlling Impulse Spending posted at The Frugal Toad, saying, "Have you gone to the grocery store for milk and eggs and come home with steak and eggs? Have you ever been tempted to buy something just because it was on sale? Impulse spending can wreck your finances and is a major reason why most people have difficulty saving money. Learning why you buy on impulse can be the key to saving more money."


Jessica Bird presents How CO2 Affects The Cost Of Your Car Tax posted at CarTaxBands.org, saying, "The amount of pollution that your car emits can have an affect on how much tax you pay. This article shows you how to find out what the CO2 emissions are on a car."

John presents Do You Have to Pay Taxes on Your Rewards? posted at Wallet Blog, saying, "A-tisket, A-tasket, a green and yellow basket Citi sent a letter in the mailt hat links rewards to taxes…With the issuance of 1099 forms to it's customers, Citi brought forward the big question--are rewards taxable or not? Can it be that it's not just for fun and games any more?"

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.
