The Career Passport Podcast

What if there is no such thing as a dream job? What if, instead of chasing that elusive Career Holy Grail, we figure out what makes us tick and what we need for our work and career? And from there we can design a career (and life) that fulfills us, but the world also doesn’t come crashing down if we need to pivot or make a change. Sound liberating?

“The Career Passport Podcast: Advice & Resources for 30-Something Women” is a weekly show that provides fresh perspective, special guests and resources you can use as you navigate your career….and how it relates to your whole and full life.

Jun 8, 2017

This week we’re talking to Ashley Feinstein Gerstley, founder of the Fiscal Femme and financial wellness and money coach. I know I say this a lot, but this was such a fun one to record for so many reasons. In addition to  her general awesomeness surrounding the work she does with clients, students and corporate wellness programs, she’s on the air today to help any of us in the following situations: 


  • You got used to a lifestyle with a high salary but want OUT. The idea of a paycut terrifies you. 
  • You don’t get paid what you’re worth and it’s starting to take its toll 
  • You want to start your own business but don’t know how to rein in the spending and/or figure out to change your mindset from one of lack to abundance 




If any of the  above made you gasp in agreement, tune into episode 007: Stop Stressing About Money- Here’s How with Ashley here: 


We’re talking about tons of goodies on the show including: 


  • Getting started on changing your money mindset 
  • Understanding your spending habits and choices using a money journal – grab the free tool from the episode here 
  • Communicating new priorities with friends 
  • Breaking through tough to break habits 


Ashley is the founder and creator of the 30 Day Money Cleanse. This was the program I took in 2014 to figure out how to shed miscellaneous spending and change my money mindset so that I could become fully self-employed (and self-funded).  




PS: We didn’t talk about negotiating salary in this episode but I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention our downloadable guide we created around the topic. You can grab it here.
