“This book is about uncovering trauma around money and then saying, ‘now that we know this, here’s how to navigate this imperfect system.'” – Ashley Feinstein Gerstley
You can tell how much I love a podcast guest when I ask them to be on the show a second time. Founder of the Fiscal Femme, Ashley Feinstein Gerstley was on the show back in 2019 when her first book, The 30-Day Money Cleanse came out. And today on the Become an Unstoppable Woman podcast, I’m so excited to have Ashley back to talk about her second book, Financial Adulting.
This book is a must-read for anyone who wants to dig deep to gain true financial confidence and awareness. It’s been combed over and fact checked to every single detail so that it can be a true financial bible for you, containing a plethora of information from money goals to investing to buying a home and everything in between that makes up a true financially confident and competent adult.
And the best part is that this book is written using a racial and feminist justice lens to tackle rarely discussed topics in money and equity, allowing you to better understand deep-seated historic and systemic obstacles. Ashley took this book to the next level by interviewing a variety of people from different backgrounds, truly showing how financial confidence looks in different perspectives.
Adulting is hard on so many levels, but finances are one of the biggest obstacles. Ashley’s book covers the different pillars of being a financially competent adult, so you can see how you identify and then grow from there.
