Introducing Money Mavens Network

A few weeks ago I was invited to join a group of financial bloggers with varied backgrounds and specialties. Shortly after agreeing to the alliance, we chose to call ourselves Money Mavens Network. We each offer a unique viewpoint and as in any well-chosen collaboration, we feel the sum will be better than the individual parts. In weeks to come you will see some special projects as well as references to our fellow Mavens.

Now, please allow me to introduce the full Money Mavens Network:

Canadian Finance Blog

Canadian Finance Blog is the Canadian source for personal finance.  The site covers universal topics such as how to invest wisely as well as tips on how you can save money on everyday expenses and bills.  As one of the leading sites based out of Canada, numerous topics that matter to Canadians are covered, including RRSP’s, TFSA’s and Canadian taxes.

Enemy of Debt

Brad Chaffee founded Enemy of Debt in 2008 in an effort to motivate and inspire financial discipline by focusing on behavior and truth. Brad feels that by learning personal responsibility, debt free principles, and the importance of planning people can learn how to take control of their finances one step at a time.

Fiscal Geek

FiscalGeek focuses on Personal Finance from the view of a Geek. Paul makes no apologies about his inner geekdom, and that’s why his audience appreciates him so much. He spreads his knowledge about finance and technology to help his readers improve their fiscal fitness, one spreadsheet at a time.

Green Panda Treehouse

I’m working in the financial industry and I am specialized in personal finance. I’m always trying to find way to make money differently than receiving my pay check every two weeks. I love to try different things and I will post true stories about them. I am currently building my own online business while working 4 days a week at my day job.


JoeTaxpayer is the founder of the eponymous www.JoeTaxpayer.com where he has been blogging on various financial topics for over three years. He is interested in all aspects of financial planning with a strong focus on tax issues and retirement planning. Joe is also a frequent contributor and one of the moderators of the Usenet group misc.taxes.moderated and guest blogger at the TurboTax blog.

Len Penzo dot Com

When it comes to writing about the world of personal finance, Len definitely marches to the beat of his own drummer! In a uniquely irreverent and highly-entertaining style, Len covers a broad array of money topics, with an emphasis on personal responsibility and running your household like a business – just like he has done successfully for the past 20 years.

Money Help For Christians

Money Help For Christians (MH4C) promotes a frugal, simple, debt-free, and generous lifestyle so Christians can faithfully maximize their resources by putting them at the disposal of God’s Kingdom. MH4C is committed to providing relevant resources in order to assist Christians in this effort.

The Oblivious Investor

At The Oblivious Investor, Mike writes about ways to invest successfully without having to watch the market from day to day or month to month. He covers topics like asset allocation, building low-maintenance portfolios, and making the most out of your retirement accounts.

Wealth Pilgrim

Wealth Pilgrim is about financial balance.  On the one hand, Neal believes most of all of us can do better financially.  Spend more mindfully, invest smarter, get better educated, make sure we maximize our earnings.  On the other hand, there are some things that are beyond our control. Rather than allow those realities to diminish our joy in life, Neal feels we should learn to accept them and find joy in those limitations. Neal writes about finding this balance on his blog Wealth Pilgrim.

I look forward to shares my knowledge and learning from my fellow Mavens.

    Joe I’m terribly happy to be a part of this tribe as well. I see great things in store!

    Great idea guys! Looking forward to seeing more from this.

  • Jeff April 12, 2010, 4:24 pm

    Good luck Joe, I’m looking forward to reading about the Mavens 🙂

  • Len Penzo April 12, 2010, 7:02 pm

    Joe, I know I speak on behalf of all your readers when I ask “Are you EVER going to finally reveal your middle name?”

    (Sorry, but Peter at Bible Money Matters made me ask.)

    All the best,

    Len Penzo dot Com

  • JOE April 12, 2010, 7:23 pm

    Uh, sure, it’s William. Really. Although with my effort to promote the brand JoeTaxpayer as a single name, no space, no hyphen, the real question is what is my last name.

  • Mike @ Green Panda April 12, 2010, 7:31 pm


    I wish that one day, you will be able to change your name for
    “Joe – The guy that doesn’t pay tax anymore”
