Karin Price Mueller, an FPANJ Heart of Financial Planning Award recipient in 2010, is the author of the site and also writes “Bamboozled” for the New Jersey Star Ledger. is visited by thousands of readers monthly offering financial information that so many have come to count on from Karin. For member advisers of FPANJ, this is also a unique opportunity to gain earned media and advertising as well.

Generally, it costs $50 to post a “Viewpoints” article on the site, but our partnership allows any member advisers to send in an article for only $25. FPANJ will cover the other half! See her video here”

Karin has been a strong advocate of FPANJ who received the Distinguished Service Award in 2009, and was FPA’s Heart of Financial Planning Award recipient in 2010. Even though she is not a registered adviser, she has been writing on the financial industry to the benefit of her readers for many years. Her loyal following includes readers who range from those trying to learn more about money management to the savvy investor.

Even if you are not a strong writer, your content is important, and Karin will take care of editing the article without affecting its overall message. You are an expert in your field and have a lot to offer so please consider sharing it on NJ MoneyHelp!

If you haven’t been to the site, here are some features, and other ways YOU can contribute

  • Ask NJMoneyHelp – readers submit questions on topics like College, Credit, Estate Planning and more; advisers can offer 3-5 paragraphs to answer their questions, and are cited accordingly
  • Money Makeovers – readers request a review of their finances to obtain a plan, and an adviser is assigned to provide it, free of charge. Karin explains that the family under-stands that the plan may take four to eight weeks to complete, and advisers interested in providing these plans should understand that they are not to actively sell their services. For this feature, she is asking for CFP®s only.
  • Viewpoints – as indicated these are columns that advisers can submit to express their views and advice on financial topics; these are submissions advisers pay to post, but al-low advisers to promote themselves
  • News –articles that Karin will aggregate, summarize and link to other stories of interest on the web; she’s quick to point out that she’s interested in any news you may have to share - send her a pitch!

“Many advisers have worked with clients whose stories are what my readers want to know – everyone is curious to know what’s in their neighbor’s wallets, and even if their situations aren’t identical, there is always some nugget of information that’s helpful for them to take away from reading about it,” she said.
