On this week’s episode of the Wealthy Woman Lawyer Podcast, we speak with Kathleen Burns Kingsbury, Founder and CEO of KBK Wealth Connection. Kathleen is an expert in financial success, psychology, behavioral finance, and gender-savvy communication. She is the author of five books, including her latest, Breaking Money Silence: How to Shatter Money Taboos, Talk More Openly About Finances, and Live a Richer Life. She also hosts a popular podcast of the same name, the Breaking Money Silence Podcast.

Kathleen says, “My background is both in finance as well as psychology, so it’s a perfect blend between those two worlds. Somebody might use financial psychology and really start to examine how they think and feel about money, how they think and feel about negotiating money, asking for money, or managing their finances. Often what we find is that it isn’t the technical side of finance that trips somebody up, it’s how they’re thinking about it, or their money personality, or these unconscious thoughts that they have. So, financial psychology and the work that I do through Breaking Money Silence is really all about that.”

We chat about Kathleen’s journey, particularly her work as a financial psychology expert, as well as:

  • The taboo against talking about money

  • Why women are more reticent to talk about money and aspire to wealth

  • The gender difference with regards to entrepreneurs and risk

  • Why being profit-motivated should be encouraged

  • And more
