The Wealth Builder Carnival #67

Welcome to the sixty-seventh 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.


John presents College and Future Earnings: What’s the Connection? posted at Wallet Blog, saying, "School for school's sake, not necessarily the best way to plan for your financial future. Look at the overall picture first, then pick the path to success that is right for you!"

Jon Rhodes presents Can You Handle Money Success? posted at Affiliate Help!, saying, "Suppose all your financial plans have come to fruition. Can you really handle this new lifestyle you have worked so long and hard to acquire?"


Dividends4Life presents 20 Dividend Stocks Giving Shareholders A Raise posted at Dividend Growth Stocks, saying, "Dividend stocks are sometimes referred to as defensive stocks since many investors flee to them in an economic downturn. Their dividends, if sustainable, provide a minimum level of positive return. This cushions the downward pressure from the market. Better yet, great dividend companies not only sustain their dividends in a downturn - they actually raise them."

Dr. Dean presents Can You “Like” This Post: On Facebook? posted at Dr. Dean's TheMillionaireNurse.com Blog, saying, "You may already have shares of Facebook in your mutual fund or retirement account. Will you be rich when they finally go public? Read on-but don’t buy that Lexus, yet!"

Living Frugally

Paul Vachon presents Personal Finance for College Graduates posted at The Frugal Toad, saying, "Graduating college is an exciting time in your life. You are finally on your own and facing many important decisions such as what career path to choose or where to relocate. Decisions made now can have a big impact on your potential income and living expenses. If I could offer one piece of personal finance advice to a new college graduate it would be to start saving money as soon as possible. Here are several other tips to get you on the road to financial success."

Theresa Torres presents Getting the Best Workout on a Shoestring Budget posted at Muscle Building Daily, saying, "You don't need to break the bank to get in good shape. Here are some suggestions to guide you in the right direction to keeping fit and healthy."


Super Saver presents Ten Worst States for Retirees posted at My Wealth Builder, saying, "Here is a list of the ten worst states in which to retire posted at TopRetirements.com."


Bill Smith presents The Relationship Between Capital Gains And Economic Growth posted at 2012 Taxes - Free Tax Filing Options, saying, "Find Out whether or not lower taxes on capital gains promote economic growth."

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.
