Breaking Money Silence, with Kathleen Burns Kingsbury


In this episode of Money Tales, our guest is Kathleen Burns Kingsbury. Kathleen has always been financially savvy, thanks in part to her parents talking to her about money all the time. And then, she and her husband were conned by the contractor next door. This rocked Kathleen’s world because she thought she should know better. Rather than letting this situation get her down, Kathleen’s voice for money conversations strengthened and amplified.

Kathleen is a wealth psychology expert, founder of KBK Wealth Connection and host of the Breaking Money Silence® podcast. She is an internationally published author and speaker. “Breaking Money Silence®: How to Shatter Money Taboos, Talk More Openly about Finances, and Live a Richer Life is Kathleen’s fifth book.

Named one of nine amazing conference speakers in 2017 by InvestmentNews, Kathleen is a sought-after keynote speaker, consultant, and coach on the topic of women and wealth and couples and money. Her mission is to empower women, couples, and families (and the advisors who serve them) to shatter money taboos and communicate more effectively about financial matters.

As an expert on financial psychology, Kathleen has appeared on television and written for consumer and trade publications. Her work has been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, PBS News Hour, Money Magazine, TODAY Money, Forbes, and CNBC. Kathleen serves as an adjunct faculty member of finance at Bentley University and Champlain College.

When she is not working, Kathleen is an avid alpine skier who lives for the next powder day. In the off-season, she enjoys mountain biking, kayaking, and laughing with her friends. She lives with her husband and her cat Avery, in the Mad River Valley of Vermont.
