How Do I Make Work Work for Me? (Part One)
We’ve been hearing so much about the changing nature of work recently– whether it’s the rise of the gig economy, or millennials rising in the workforce. And we know so many people’s money questions are work questions, so we decided to do a two part series on it! In this first episode of the series, Ashley talks to Andrew, a plumber’s apprentice and part-time arborist, about how his financial identity has shaped his zig-zagging career path. They discuss Andrew’s hopes for the future, and what it’ll take for him to find both financial equilibrium and meaning in his work. Then, Ashley convenes a panel of two people who’ve been where Andrew is today. We hear from Heather Marold Thomason, founder of the sustainable butchery Primal Supply (https://www.primalsupplymeats.com/), and Jeremy Ayers, the artisan behind the Vermont-based Jeremy Ayers Pottery (https://www.jeremyayerspottery.com/), about how they found the confidence and perseverance to launch their own businesses and navigate life outside the 9-to-5.

Ford, we'll be putting those questions out in the open, exploring how money is tangled up in everything and finding the answers through our own “Financial Identity”.
