What Just Happened...

What a great Vermont Women's Investors Network meeting on January 23, 2020 with Kathleen Burns Kingsbury (KBK), author of several books including her latest, Breaking Money Silence®: How to Shatter Money Talk Taboos, Talk More Openly about Finance, and Live a Richer Life.  Kathleen shared her story behind her work and why she is passionate about women embracing their economic power. We all took away greater insight into our own money mindset and how it can impact our financial and investment decisions.  A big thank you to Kathleen for giving of her time to our group! 

Check out and and definitely listen to her Breaking Money Silence podcast at

For those who want more, Kathleen is offering a free webinar, Breaking Money Silence® on Negotiations, Wednesday, January 29, 2020 at 1:00pm EST.  Sixty-one percent of women would rather talk about their own death than money, and this money silence contributes to the gender wage gap and investing gap that persists in the United States. It is time to empower yourself to stop paying such a big price for this silence and speak up financially.  In this webinar, discover the common myths about women as negotiators that hurt us the most, how your negotiation mindset impacts your financial success, and how to use a proven five-step process for mastering the art of negotiations.  Register HERE
