The Wealth Builder Carnival #137

Welcome to the one hundred thirty-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.

For reference, multiple submissions from the same blog are included for this edition since this Carnival was not published the last two weeks. Normally, only one submission is allowed per blog.

And now on to the Carnival.


Buck Inspire presents Forced Out Of My Comfort Zone posted at Buck Inspire, saying, "I have been primarily in server management throughout my IT career. Recently, I vowed to expand my skills into networking."

Insuring and Protecting

Gary presents Best Life Insurance Companies posted at MyLifeInsuranceQuotes123.com, saying, "Picking the best life insurance policy for your needs is just as important as picking the best life insurance company to buy from.

Best and JD Power, one of which focuses on financial strength and the latter on customer satisfaction, here is a list of the top companies in the industry and what factors you should consider when picking your provider."

John Schmoll presents When Should You Start Saving for Retirement? posted at Frugal Rules, saying, "Saving for retirement can be challenging for many.
