Who We Are

Money Talk: Financial Planning Seminars and Publications (Money Talk) was established by Dr. Barbara O’Neill, CFP®, AFC® in 1992. The mission of Money Talk is to write, speak, and review content about personal finance topics. Over the past 28 years, Money Talk has provided financial education content development services through a wide variety of freelance writing, speaking, and editing assignments. Money Talk Founder, Dr. O’Neill is also the author of the recently published book Flipping a Switch: Your Guide to Happiness and Financial Security in Later Life.


What We Offer

Money Talk provides “as needed” financial education content development services for public and private organizations. When groups have a grant-funded financial education program to develop and deliver, a one-time special project that needs completion, or a workload that exceeds their current capacity, Money Talk can help them to get the work done.

Projects for clients have included the development of white papers, test questions, blog posts, lesson plans, radio shows, website and social media content, textbook chapter material, brochures, newsletter articles, curricula and facilitators’ guides, program evaluation summaries, webinars, and live financial education presentations for consumers and professionals.

Money Talk has also been hired to review and revise personal finance curricula, review and revise financial education curriculum standards, and serve as a subject matter expert/technical editor for television shows, trade books, and text books. Money Talk became a Jump$tart Coalition partner in 2020. Previously, Dr. O’Neill represented Cooperative Extension on the national Jump$tart board and served for over a decade on the board of the NJ Coalition for Financial Education.
