The Weatlh Builder Carnival #131

Welcome to the one hundred thirty-first 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.


Bryan Chau presents What You Can Learn From The Evolution of Amazon.com posted at Success Pen Pal, saying, "Investing in New Opportunities, Marketing, Business, Marketing Mix, Entrepreneurs, Amazon.com, Jeff Bezos, Success Pen Pal, Bryan Chau, etc."

Insuring and Protecting

Jason Hull presents Bronze May Be the Most Precious Metal Under Obamacare posted at Hull Financial Planning, saying, "Now that California has released its preliminary premiums for the health care plans under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), we evaluate which of the four tiers will be most economical for people who have to purchase health insurance under the state exchanges in Obamacare."


Dividends4Life presents 9 Dividend Stocks Providing A Growing Income posted at Dividend Growth Stocks, saying, "How much money will you need for retirement? This a very difficult question to answer. There are many factors and assumptions that go into estimating the income that will be needed in retirement. However, one certainty is that if you only invest in fixed income instruments, you will need more than if your investments provide you a growing income..."

Living Frugally

Bryan presents Where Should I Live? posted at Gajizmo, saying, "Deciding where to live is an important decision that will affect many aspects of your lifestyle and finances. Here is a list of detailed factors to consider when determining what city to live in and why."

Mr.CBB presents How To Overcome Laziness And Save Money In 5 Steps posted at Canadian Budget Binder, saying, "Not everyone has to build a garden to make a salad on their own nor do they have to hire a landscaping company to maintain the beauty of their home. Taking time to set goals and prioritize those goals will go a long way in saving money in the budget."

Theresa Torres presents Kids and Money: Raising Money-Conscious Kids posted at CreditDonkey.com Tips, saying, "Start your kids early in financial education with these money tips so they'll hopefully grow up to be money-savvy adults."


John Schmoll presents Things I Would Never Do: Raid My 401k to Buy Property posted at Frugal Rules, saying, "There is an increasing number of investors taking out loans on their 401k accounts in order to buy investment property. While diversification of investments is key, the inherent risk may not be enough to offset the potential gain."

Super Saver presents Low Interest Rates Making Retirement Harder posted at My Wealth Builder, saying, "In 2003, $1 million in savings could earn $50,000 in FDIC insured CDs. In 2013, that same $1 million can earn $15,000 to $20,000 in a 1.5% five year CD or a 2% 10 year Treasury."

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.
