A Quitter for All the Right Reasons: Ash Cash Teaches You about Your Money
During one of the worst economic times in the country’s history, 30-year old Ash Cash has decided to take a leap of faith and quit his six figure job as a bank manager to pursue a dream of becoming an entrepreneur and teaching financial literacy. Born and raised in a single parent household in the St. Nicholas projects in Harlem, it was believed by Ash and most of his peers that they would be dead or in jail by the age of twenty-five. Somehow through faith, family support, hard work and sacrifice he was able to avoid both.
With more than ten years of banking experience, Ash was able to work his way up the ranks from teller to personal banker, private banker and branch manager. Throughout his career he managed a book of 400 affluent clients with assets ranging from $100,000 to $22 million, coached and trained over 100 sales professionals, opened and managed six branches and brought in almost $90 million in deposits. Today he is an entrepreneur, motivational speaker and the author of Mind Right, Money Right: 10 Laws of Financial Freedom. He works with city agencies and organizations and teaches financial literacy in churches, colleges, and to undeserved, at risk, and incarcerated youth. Simply put, Ash is on a mission to Financially Re-Educate Every Spectrum of Humanity.
Ash believes that the biggest problem in the community, as it pertains to money, is that “we spend money we don’t have to buy things we don’t need to impress people we don’t like.”
He continues, “As a people, we are so used to not having money that we can’t really grasp the concept of saving for the future and spending our money wisely. Couple that with the fact that a lot of us have low self-esteem and use expensive material things to make us feel better. Some of us would rather spend money on cars, jewelry and clothes than to become homeowners, save for emergencies or fix our credit. Our issues are deeply rooted and they become a cycle that is passed down from generation to generation making it more difficult to break. The good news is that there’s a movement going on; people are starting to wake up and take more responsibility. We are seeing more of our people excel in positions that in the past didn’t seem possible. This movement is what is spearheading the paradigm change and forcing many of us to put the first things first.”
This is what led Ash to writing his book. Mind Right, Money Right: 10 Laws of Financial Freedom, is a book designed to teach readers how to effectively manage their personal finances. It shows how with the right mental attitude and laser sharp focus, anyone can have anything they desire in life. It’s an easy to read book that anyone, at any level, can understand. This book is especially geared towards those who are tired of having a dependency on money and are ready to take some practical steps in order to correct it.
Ash comments, “This is our generation’s ‘Think and Grow Rich’. Starting with the power of self confidence the book discusses in detail how having a positive mental attitude, paying yourself first, budgeting and planning for the future are all ways to immediately change your financial situation.”
Mind Right, Money Right demonstrates how a person’s mindset plays a tremendous role in creating financial abundance. By using examples of successful people such as Sean Combs, Tyler Perry, Oprah Winfrey, Shawn Carter, Curtis Jackson, Chris Lighty and many others, the reader is given a real life account of how these laws have worked for others and how it can work for you. It’s important to point out that the title is “Mind Right, Money Right” and not the other way around.
“Once we are able to control the way we look at money, the way we feel about money and the way we think about money, then it will become easier for us to keep and grow our money… To sum it up simply: This book will change your life,” he says.
Mind Right, Money Right: 10 Laws Of Financial Freedom (Revised Edition) is now available on Kindle for $0.99 or in paperback on Amazon for $9.99. For more information on Ash Cash, visit www.IamAshCash.com
