Hey there. Tired of boring money topics? Weird. So am I.

The MSB Report is a weekly newsletter that is delivered to your inbox every Friday.

I plow through news that impacts your money, cut out the clutter, and make sense of it all so you don’t have to.

The MSB Report will inform and empower you by making you not want to punch yourself in the face when you’re reading about money topics.

Here’s how Forbes describes the content: “Picture The Daily Show, but swap out Jon Stewart for a blonde using clever analogies and wry wit to simplify financial topics.” – Forbes

We love to expose the truth. We have no problems making your “financial guru friend” want to punch him/herself in the face because sometimes the truth hurts.

So stop worrying if you missed what the Fed just said and have no clue what it means for your money.

Every Friday The MSB Report will tell you what you need to know. It’s like Uber for ____. Just kidding, I am using that comparison because everyone else is and it usually makes no sense. See, already making sense for you.

PS No spamming. One email. Every Friday. For f**ks sake, who has time to send more than one email a week? When you join you’ll automatically be pinged last week’s Report. You’ll see some videos on Makin’ Sense Babe but the content that is in the weekly MSB Report is for subscribers only and not on the site.

Background

kathryn cicoletti founder of makinsensebabe

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.
