Hey there. Tired of boring money topics? Weird. So am I.
“Picture The Daily Show, but swap out Jon Stewart for a blonde using clever analogies and wry wit to simplify financial topics.” – Forbes
I expose the truth about financial topics in an entertaining way that empowers you and makes you laugh and learn rather than want to slit your eyeballs.
If you work in finance you’ll either love or hate this site. You’ll probably love it because you’re obviously surfing the internet at work right now and looking for a reason laugh and learn and not do your boring job.
And hey you! Stop worrying if you missed what the Fed just said or have no clue what their umpteenth announcement means for your money.
Delivered directly to your inbox every Friday, The MSB Report will tell you what you need to know in case you were asleep at the wheel all week (endorse).
The report is broken out by day, Monday – Friday, with a key event for each day and what it means for your money (including Wall Street douchebaggery that you should avoid).
@MakinSenseBabe One of the top MSB reports I’ve seen. Thanks for keeping it entertaining & simple!

Hi, I’m Kathryn Cicoletti, the founder and producer here at MakinSense Babe Media. I graduated from UC Berkeley with a BS from Haas School of Business. I have over 10 years of experience working in finance and spent the last seven years as a Director at GAM, a $40 billion asset management firm in Los Angeles blah blah blah.
I used my research background to parlay my knowledge into a successful sales career becoming one of the firm’s top revenue generators in the United States. And then I got really bored and quit so I could create money-focused content that empowers and entertains you. Here’s an article on Forbes about me that explains why I left my $500k+ job.
I started my asset management career at Julius Baer as a research analyst in New York where over a five-year period I became the youngest Senior Research Analyst on the team. During my time as a Senior Research analyst I interviewed and conducted due diligence on over 1,000 long/short equity and relative value arbitrage hedge fund managers in the United States and Europe for potential investments. Some are in jail now, it’s cool.

I began my financial career at Meritus Research, a San Francisco-based hedge fund research company. When I’m not busy running daily Adobe software updates on my computer, I love to run, explore new places, and a beer in the Santa Monica sun is always nice. I’m an introvert but often mis-categorized as an extrovert. We’re here to entertain, inform and empower, so don’t take everything I say so damn personally.
