My real name is Ash Exantus; Ash Cash is a name that was given to me by my friends when I was a kid because I was always focused on making money. I have more than 15 years of banking experience. When I decided to go into financial education, I kept the nickname because it was easy for people to remember.
When I was young I really didn’t know what I wanted to do. In fact I fell into my purpose and career in finance by just taking a job as a teller at a bank as a way to make more money than I was making at that time. Eventually, I started to see the positive impact that I was having on people’s lives and it felt good.
Currently, I’m the Director of Financial Education for BankMobile, responsible for leading our mission to financially empower every one of our more than two million customers.
My favorite part of my job is helping people maximize their full potential by giving them the inspiration, tools and resources needed to live their best lives
The most important thing that people need to know about money is that it should work for you instead of you working for it. Depending on where you are starting out financially, you may have to work for money in the beginning but that shouldn’t be the end-all and be-all.
Right now, I’m focused on helping BankMobile help as many people as possible reach their full potential. I’m also excited to work with our Vibe BankMobilist program to help empower the next generation of fiscally responsible adults.
