Trio of Bellevue Financial Planners Debuts Smart Money Moves Book to Inspire Professionals Early in Their Careers to Make the Most of Their Money and Their Lives

Book Publishing, PR Beyond the Backyard, PR in Action Comments Off on Trio of Bellevue Financial Planners Debuts Smart Money Moves Book to Inspire Professionals Early in Their Careers to Make the Most of Their Money and Their Lives

For Immediate Release

January 30, 2019

Three financial planners from Juetten Personal Financial Planning, LLC have released a new book for professionals early in their careers about getting on track and staying on track with their money, just in time for goal setting in the new year.

Smart Money Moves: Get On Track and Stay on Track Early in Your Career with These Tips, Hacks, and Strategies is now available for purchase at

“Money matters are top of mind at the start of a new year. Smart Money Moves is a perfect gift or resource for 20-and-30-something professionals to help them get off to a good start managing their money. It’s an easy read and a useful resource packed with hacks, tips and strategies to make the most of their money and their lives,” says Steve Juetten, CFP® , Founder and Principal of Juetten Personal Financial Planning, LLC.

When money questions come up around buying a car, starting a new job, or deciding to start a family or buy a house, while figuring out how to pay off student debt, Smart Money Moves is the book to turn to, Juetten suggests.

Co-authors Kyle Wilke, CFP® and Chelsea Hodl, MBA, are early career professionals who confer with and advise 20 and 30-something career professionals about money matters. That is refreshing for clients who prefer to talk to peer experts as opposed to advisors who are decades older.

Roseanney Liu, a nonfiction author and speaker from Los Angeles read the book and had this to say about it:

“Filled with eye-opening eureka moments was my experience reading Smart Money Moves. The financial advice shared with millennials and early career professionals is timely and on par with great wisdom that will help readers be on the right track to financial security and success. As someone with young children, I was pleasantly surprised by tips on the differences between pre-paid tuition plans and education savings plans and that bank accounts may be set to P.O.D. (read the book to find what it means) condition in order for beneficiaries to not pay estate taxes. It was interesting to realize the differences between credit freeze and a credit lock and they both can safeguard one’s financial identity. The advice about how to smartly research and choose debt consolidation companies is excellent for those seeking this avenue to pay down their debts. The explanation on how Bitcoin works and its risks are refreshing for me, as someone not well-versed on this digital wallet account works, and the advice is sound on why fee-only financial advisors and personal (not online) estate planning attorneys are best. Overall, Smart Money Moves is a wonderful, easy to understand financial advice book for millennials, and I look forward to implementing some things I have learned and sharing it with my children as it’s never too early to sow the seeds for one’s financial security.

Common Questions about Press Releases and Their Results

PR Beyond the Backyard, PR in Action, product publicity Comments Off on Common Questions about Press Releases and Their Results

Clients ask me time and time again what actually happens with their visibility, credibility, and profitability when they issue press releases. Many good things often happen, and here is a partial list of what can and often does happen for those who are serious about getting known through the power of good press in the traditional or online media.

Even if it has been a long time since you actually held a real newspaper in your hands, do not underestimate the value of having your expertise showcased online. It makes it easier for your ideal prospective clients to find you and decide at first glance that you truly are the right expert to engage to solve their urgent problems.

Note: All Images are Clickable to Make It Easy to Read or Watch the Press Releases.

  • Clients who feel invisible to their ideal clients appreciate the visibility and credibility they welcome when their expertise is more easily found in a Google or other internet search engine investigation. The transformation from invisible to visible feels really empowering to experts who for one reason or another have been hiding out in obscurity for way too long.
  • Sometimes, one media placement invites others to fan the flames of visibility to create a firestorm of interest in the expert being featured.  For example, remember when the PBS series “Downton Abbey” was at the height of popularity? My husband — Bellevue, WA Certified Financial Planner Professional Steve Juetten —  and I crafted a press release about the financial lessons inspired from the halls of Downton Abbey. That press release  opened the door for follow up media placements on the PBS blog,,, and many other prestigious media outlets. This effort resulted in excellent and prestigious visibility and it also delivered 300 new opt in subscribers who were interested in the Smart Money Rules gift booklet he was offering at that time in exchange for their name and email address.  Steve says a number of those new opt in subscribers subsequently decided to invest in his personal financial planning and investment management services.

  • When using prREACH – a video news release service that is part of a Press Release Pizzazz done-for-you service I offer, placement reports demonstrate that 370 or more outlets run the news as presented. That is a lot of potential “eye balls” of potential clients who can make the wise choice to take the call to action noted within each release to learn more.
  • Often experts will welcome speaking gigs and invitations to contribute commentary to podcasts, teleseminars, and other high profile opportunities to share their expertise with more of their ideal clients. For example, Sara Harvey Yao — an expert on executive leadership and presence — took advantage of the epic win of the Seattle Seahawks in a championship game to bring her expertise to the top of the search engines fast.  When she shared the media coverage that resulted from this effort with her most important client, she was booked for two paid speaking engagements almost immediately.


  • New Author Dr. Susan O’Malley was excited to share her new book with the world, yet her own author platform had not yet grown to a size where an email to her list would make a lot of noise. She took the opportunity to debut her book about working hard for success around the St. Patrick’s Day holiday to make her point that success is not to be left to chance.  The visibility came at the perfect time to draw attention to a book signing event in her home town of Connecticut.  And the “cool quotient” associated with the video news release also made it easy and fast to share the good news across social media.


  • The World’s Leading Relationship with Money Coach Morgana Rae reached out to get press for her expertise. One of the most amusing results of that effort was that Siri — the voice of the i-phone — returns her website as the result when you ask “Who is the world’s leading relationship with money coach?” It’s hard to quantify the value of that, but when it is you who is showcased by Siri, you’ll immediately feel the impact.


  • Christine Kloser has seen fit to use press releases to promote the Transformational Author Experience.  Here is the release from the 2013 event.  The media placements earned as a direct result of this are now proudly posted to the home page for the 5th annual event.
  • Media logos from placements can be showcased visually as demonstrated by this image of yours truly. As a Facebook profile image, this clearly sets my profile apart in a credible way that reinforces my “media savvy” expertise.

nancy-2013-with-logos (3)

  • Clearly, my husband  of 28 years Steve is my longest standing client. I am a huge champion for his success.
  • In his business, the use of testimonials and the sharing of commissions is not allowed by the Certified Financial Planner code of ethics.  His is running a business that is based squarely on trust, and building his credibility in a clean and ethical manner has always been a high priority.
  • Since potential clients will search for someone with his expertise using key words such as “Bellevue, WA Fee-Only Financial Planner” or “Certified Financial Planner Professional, Bellevue, WA,” Steve has made a point of emphasizing those words on the “home page” of his website and on blog posts he writes.  And, he also knows clients serious about engaging his expertise will often do an internet search of his first and last name to learn more about him.  
  • Since he has been issuing press releases and commenting to the media about financial planning topics for years, the credibility around his expertise is very solid.  One article that ran in the Seattle Times years ago still comes up quickly in an internet search for Steve’s name because he is quoted by offering stellar advice.  Time and time again, clients say, “I read your comments in the Seattle Times article, and that helped me know that you were the adviser I wanted to meet with.” 
  • Once Steve meets with the clients, his listening skills and gifts at enrolling clients to his services take center stage. 
  • In the internet marketing world, some experts elect to use press releases to reach potential clients who have not yet become part of their email subscriber communities.  While this does not contribute significantly to a huge wave of new opt in subscribers in my experience, it DOES contribute a “cool quotient” and additional credibility around their expertise. For experts who have achieved a measure of meaningful success, the recognition associated with being seen in this way is hard to calculate and meaningful at a very personal level.   The email notes of appreciation I have received time and time again reinforce how very true this is. While some people say business is business, experts who have worked long and hard for their success consider GETTING PRESS very personal.
  • Some clients are reluctant to take center stage for whatever reason and don’t want to put themselves on video.  The advantage of a video news release is that the expert’s perspectives and call to action can be highlighted, while an attractive news reader delivers the information.
  • People learn in different ways. Video engages people with sight and sound, enhancing the likelihood that the message will be received and ignite some action. Video is highly relevant in today’s video crazed, “let me watch it on my i-phone” culture.

These are just the tip-of-the-iceberg results that can unfold when experts, authors, consultants, and speakers make an ongoing use of press releases — video or traditional — to build buzz about their expertise and invite visibility, credibility, and — of course — profitability.

I’ll be speaking more about press releases and the potholes to avoid during an interview Tuesday, May 26 at 10 a.m. Pacific. Join me and Christine Kloser of the 2015 Transformational Author Experience to listen in and benefit. The replay will be made available for 24 hours without fee.

Wow — Your Press Release as BROADCAST NEWS — and Top Rankings on Google for a Song!

PR in Action, PR Success Stories Comments Off on Wow — Your Press Release as BROADCAST NEWS — and Top Rankings on Google for a Song!

prreachlogoYou know, the more deeply I dive into my business…And as it continues to grow and evolve…The more grateful I am to live in such an amazing time. Because whether you’re a small business or a huge firm, the opportunities for success are truly endless…Technology has helped to level the playing field…And here’s just one new example of how.

prReach is a powerful service created by Rob Burns.  If you’ve never heard of Rob, he’s one of those “mad scientist” types who like to create intricate systems that boggle the mind (and produce results).  He’s spent the last five years putting his genius towards Search Engine Optimization (SEO), and crushing the front page for himself and his customers. 

And I have put the service to the test to welcome solid results for my own business and for my clients.  In fact, the press release I created and sent on behalf of Alex Mandossian last month is one that comes up #4 in a Google Search for his name.  The placement report from prReach reveals that the release was picked up by 370 media AlexWelcomeoutlets, bringing his news to a great many potential fans, followers, and potential clients.

To give you a quick overview, prREACH takes PR to a whole new level. Press releases, done right, can get you in front of millions of people, covered in the media, and highly visible in the search engine results. Rob has created the first ever service that adds VIDEO into the mix. Instead of just an old-fashioned written press release, every release is complimented by a professional news anchor, reading YOUR news, live in studio. This helps build massive social proof, among other things. 

See how prREACH can build your brand >>>

prREACH is one of those game changing tools. The type of service that can really replace most (if not all) of your other marketing efforts, and give you the ease and simplicity you may be looking for inside your marketing.  The system Rob’s built combines the power of video marketing, social network marketing, and press release marketing all into one. It is super easy to use, too. And on top of delivering the most bang for your buck, he’s about a quarter the cost of his top competitors.  Bottom line, Rob’s really outdone himself with this one. You’ll have to see it to understand.

Click here to see prREACH in action >>>

Why is it urgent to pay attention to this blog post now?  Because the pricing goes up at midnight, August 7, 2014.   If you want to benefit from the visibility, credibility, and video WOW that this service delivers for a song, now is the time to act.  

As for me, I write a lot of press releases in my business — for my joint venture partners, my clients, and to create buzz for my own business.  I am a big believer in their value because I have worked as a publicist for many years and used publicity to build my brand and reputation long before I even knew what a joint venture was.

I signed up to send 4 releases a month at the amazingly low rate of $197 a month.   That is a no-brainer level of investment for the impact.  If ever there was an EASY YES decision for me, this is it.  So, take a look and see if this is something that strikes a chord with you.  And say YES to benefit from the best pricing.  Prices go up at midnight, August 7, 2014.

Business Bio Expert Nancy Juetten Offers Timely Tips and Gifts to Say ‘Bye-Bye Boring Bio’ and Kick Self-Doubt to the Curb to Attract Clients in 2014

Event Promotion, PR in Action Comments Off on Business Bio Expert Nancy Juetten Offers Timely Tips and Gifts to Say ‘Bye-Bye Boring Bio’ and Kick Self-Doubt to the Curb to Attract Clients in 2014



Contact: Nancy Juetten, 425-641-5214,

BELLEVUE, Wash., January 4, 2013– Writing a client attracting bio can be a time-consuming challenge that keeps many self-employed business owners, authors, coaches, and speakers feeling frustrated and stuck. They want “bio pride” but continue to suffer from “bio cringe.”

“There is a story struggle and message muddle epidemic in force that needs relief now,” says Bye-Bye Boring Bio Author and Business Bio Expert Nancy Juetten. “Let the healing for boring business bios begin because ‘The Bio Doc is In.”BioDocisIn8-211x300

Juetten offers tips to make a powerful first impression with well-chosen words quickly:

  • Decide what you need right now. Do you want to attract clients, media interviews, investors, or speaking engagements? Cater your message to your audience because one size bio does not suit all situations.
  •  Lead with the role you play that has the greatest potential to attract clients now. “Author/Speaker/Coach is a list of roles as opposed to an intoxicating message about results that a reader can’t wait to learn more about,” Juetten explains.
  • Reflect on the who, the how and the wow. Who is your ideal client, what result do you bring about for them, and what’s compelling about that result that makes hiring you a no-brainer?
  •  Identify the specific, terrific results from your work with clients in crystal clear terms. Readers need to know that relief or compelling benefits are within their grasp with you as their service provider and be willing to invest.
  • Add your personality. What quick stories or sound bites can you share? “People hire me for my head, pay me for my heart, and trust me most when I use both,” is an example from Steve Juetten, Certified Financial Planner. It sets the tone to create a relationship and invites clients to lean in to learn more,” Juetten explains.
  • “Content over Cute” is a good rule of thumb. Name and claim your geography and expertise – such as ‘Fee-only financial planner, Bellevue, WA.’ Then, it easy for clients searching for that expertise to find you, call you and do business with you,” Juetten says.

Juetten offers two gifts to guide frustrated bio writers to get help to make their stories more client-attracting now:

  •  The Heal Your Boring Business Bio for Client Attraction Now – The Bio Doc Offers Tips and Story Makeovers to Show You How gift booklet

Juetten’s next Get Your Client Attracting Story Done Worldwide Virtual Workshop takes place January 22, 2014 from noon – 3 p.m. Pacific. This is a 3-hour working session that guides authors, experts, and speakers to get their client attracting stories done with expert help. Everyone who enrolls receives a bring-a-buddy email invitation within 24 hours. Participants receive a digital copy of Juetten’s popular Bye-Bye Boring Bio workbook, practical tools to build online and offline business buzz, and useful handouts to guide the experience and the results. They can also attend a two-hour “Bio Doc is In” follow up call on January 29, 2014 from noon – 2 p.m. Pacific to get even more expert help.

Juetten suggests, “Get together with a colleague, fellow independent business professional, or ‘storytelling buddy.’ Share the modest $197 fee for the support and resources. Together from your home or office with my support, you can collaborate and get to the essence of your best client attracting stories in time for a great 2014.”

Shadow – The Best Example of Seeing, Hearing and Celebrating Others that I Know

PR in Action Comments Off on Shadow – The Best Example of Seeing, Hearing and Celebrating Others that I Know

Getting seen, heard, and celebrated means a lot to me, which would explain why I love my dog Shadow.  This golden retriever knows what it is to see, hear, and celebrate everyone who crosses his path, especially me.  Every day starts with the bringing of gifts ranging from socks to stuffed toys to unmentionables he’s found along his travels throughout our house.  His nose rests beside my bed, his tail wags with enthusiasm, and it’s time to wake up to the joy he brings every day.   Shadow is quick to jump on the bed, get “eye to eye” with me, and encourage me to start each day with a smile.  I love this dog.

Shadow joined our family when my son Kyle was seven years old.  These two have grown up together and shared many a joyful moment.  It’s been a joy to behold.  And when I’ve had the ups and downs that are typical as an entrepreneur, Shadow has been loyal, devoted and full of joy, no matter what.

Walking through the neighborhood, Shadow is like my own personal “Chamber of Commerce.”  He greets everyone with a smile and a wagging tail.  He makes friends wherever he goes. This dog knows how to win friends and influence people.   We can all learn a lot from him.

Now, things have changed.  The vet tells us that Shadow has cancer.  My husband, son, and I are faced with some very difficult choices, and we are very sad.   The next few days are going to be very hard, so if you have some love and joy to send our way, we would all receive it gratefully.

You can see a mini video of Shadow’s life by visiting my Facebook page.  Please share a comment if you are so moved.

Discouraged Former Real Estate Investor Finds Riches in Sassy Novelty Item — It Takes Balls to Golf

PR in Action, product publicity Comments Off on Discouraged Former Real Estate Investor Finds Riches in Sassy Novelty Item — It Takes Balls to Golf

The media loves a rags to riches story, and I had the opportunity to work with a new entrepreneur last week with a very timely, relevant and entertaining story to tell.

Who among us hasn’t been impacted by the challenging economy?  Doug Baker, a former real estate investor, was discouraged when his house flipping business was turned on its side as a consequence of the dramatic changes in the real estate market.  Discouraged and dismayed, he followed advice his wife Sandra gave him.  She said, “Follow your heart.  Figure out a way to make a living doing something you love.”

As it turned out, what Doug loves is the game of golf.  One morning, he woke up with an “aha” moment to create “My Sack.”  Today, the company is on track to generate $1 million in revenues.    Read the press release below for more details and inspiration that anything is possible, if you just allow yourself to think creatively, act decisively, add value to the marketplace — and have a little fun.   And, if you are looking for a playful and affordable gift to share with the golfer in your life this Valentine’s Day, MySack could be just the ticket!

By the way, if you need help turning your “aha” moment into a media opportunity, check out the “Rent Nancy’s PR Brain” service.   That’s what Sandra and Doug Baker did, and they are smiling now.


Contact:   Sandra Baker or Doug Baker,  801-391-7515 or

(or call Nancy Juetten, 425-641-5214 or send email at if Sandra or Doug aren’t available.)

My Sack Has “Cutest Gift for Men” in the Bag, According to Hallmark Buyers at Altanta Gift Show

Discouraged Former Real Estate Investor Finds Riches in Sassy Novelty Item

(Atlanta, GA – January 14, 2010) — A new novelty item for golfers took the January 2010 Atlanta Gift Show by storm when “My Sack” came out of the bag in a big way, Founder Doug Baker quipped today.  Baker is founder of My Sack, the original ball holder (

Gift buyers from Hallmark stores and beyond called ‘My Sack’ the unexpected darling at the gift show,”  Baker said.  Gift buyers from Hallmark and scores and scores of boutique chain retailers and gift stores are placed orders valued at almost $70,000 in sales in a single weekend at this show.  Based on the sales momentum achieved since the product first debuted in July of 2009 at their first Atlanta Gift Show, Baker is optimistic that “My Sack” is on its way toward achieving $1 million in sales for 2010.

“That is great news for him as well as for women everywhere who are looking for the a show-stopping gift to delight their golfing husbands this Valentine’s Day. The picture tells the story about what this item is quite well.  Within the sack are two logo-adorned golf balls and the message, “It Takes Balls to Golf.”

MySack is crafted using high-quality, ultra-suede fabric and industrial-strength stitching.  It has a heavy-duty velcro enclosure and sturdy clasp which are both double-stitched to ensure longevity.  All logos are embroidered (except custom-ordered corporate logos).  MySack was designed to ensure laughs and durability for years to come. My Sack retails for $14.99.

Prior to launching ‘My Sack,” Baker was in the business of real estate investing and flipping homes.  When the market fell out, his business did, too.  Discouraged and dismayed, he searched for inspiration to create a new way to serve the marketplace.  An avid golfer, he woke up one morning with his “aha” moment.  Why not create a useful ball holder that could also lift spirits for those hoping to swing the club for a win next time.”

Baker said the product was in four stores in June of 2009.  In August, MySack was in 36 stores.  By December, 120 stores were carrying the product.  By January, well over 500 stores are carrying the product.

Baker said, “My story offers timely inspiration to those many thousands of Americans who are discouraged, underemployed, or out of work.  You really can live your dream if you just set aside your disappointment and let your imagination take flight.  You just might find a hole in one.”

Baker also offers an extraordinary guarantee for this remarkable product.  He says, “I am so confident that MySack will be a hit in your retail store, as it has for others, I will guarantee that if you are not pleased with the sales of MySack after days, I will buy back the display and all unsold items from you.  I can only do this because of the history and success that we have seen so quickly with MySack.”

This guarantee applies with purchase of the $39.00 display which includes three free MySacks (retail value $42.00) to offset display cost.  Call or email us for pricing info. Doug Baker is available for media interviews.  Call Doug at  801-391-7515.  Reporters and bloggers seeking product samples to feature in Valentine’s Day Gift Guides are encouraged to get in touch, request samples, and share the news with their followers.
