Get The Best F@#king Investment Cheat SheetThis is a subscription based monthly investment educational tool that helps you understand your existing investments and helps you get started investing. It will make your life better by taking the stress out of investing. 

Subscription based ($). Once a month. To your inbox by the 7th business day every month. 

> The majority of the financial community overcomplicates investing topics so you are reliant on them (and have to pay them money) to do things you can very easily do yourself.

> The Cheat Sheet will show you how to do this (how to pick investment funds, how to grow your money over the long-term, how to understand your risk tolerance, and more). You can do this. It is actually very easy but most financial professionals like to convince you it is very hard. It is not hard, you can do it.

> I (Kathryn, below) am tired of financial professionals and all their insider baseball financial lingo. They all speak this way to one-up each other and sound smarter than the next guy.

> The way they communicate does not help anyone. That dialogue perpetuates the cycle of “how smart can I sound with big financial words to convince everyone I am smarter than you.”

But really…..

Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains. – Steve Jobs

We created The MSB Cheat Sheet because the freeloader subscribers to the free MSB Report (above) asked for specific details on how to select investment funds, how grow their money over the long-term, and information on the easiest way to to get this done. They wanted this information to be *very easy* to understand and to come with realistic actionable items (unlike other financial educational information that leaves you thinking “oh f***, where do I begin.”)

The MSB Cheat Sheet an investment educational tool that will teach you what is important, what you should ignore (a lot), and teach you how to grow your money for the long term. This will come to you in a simple digestible format each month.

Hope this is a no-brainer for you. Check out the list of features and be sure to read the testimonials, here.


kathryn cicoletti founder of makinsensebabe

Hi, I’m Kathryn Cicoletti, the founder here at MakinSense Babe LLC. 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, educates, and entertains you. Here’s an article on Forbes about me that explains why I left my $500k+ job (and one in Fast Company and Huffington Post).

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.

If you’re interested in learning about how to invest your own money in a simple digestible format every month that makes sense, check out The Best F@#king Investment Cheat Sheet. Be sure to read the testimonials. They actually give you the best idea on what you’re going to get.

I began my financial career at Meritus Research, a San Francisco-based hedge fund research company. I’m an introvert but often mis-categorized as an extrovert. I love to run, explore new places, and a beer in the Santa Monica sun is always nice when I’m not busy running daily Adobe software updates on my computer.
