Financial Educator | Podcaster | Public Speaker | Writer | LGBTQ+ Activist | Feminist | Abusive Relationship Survivor
Regarded as one of the future leaders of the financial industry, Adrian J. Hall, also known as “Man Vs Cash” has been directly involved in personal finance for over seven years and counting and uses this expertise to wage a war against our perception of personal finance.
Professionally, he has most recently thrived in a Mortgage Pre-Underwriting role with a specialization in secondary market residential lending for a two billion dollar financial institution in the Greater Knoxville, Tennessee area. Adrian’s experience is anchored with time as a senior branch staff member for a multi-million dollar credit union, loan servicing, vehicle titling, new account sales, local-level marketing, consumer lending, residential real estate sales, and pre-owned automotive sales.
He is the co-host, producer, editor, and owner of Cash Talk, a weekly personal finance podcast about money and finance… from an average person’s perspective. Adrian also serves on the board of the TNMIC Networking committee, a young professionals networking group with the goal of motivating, innovating, and connecting the future leaders of the finance industry across the southeast region of the United States.
Adrian started manvscash.com as a personal blog with the objective of self-accountability and a “call to arms” as he documented his war against debt during his journey to becoming debt free. In the first 12 months, he navigated and explained his process in paying off nearly $20,000 of debt, and gained a following of over 2,500+ people interested in understanding more about their own finances.
These demands for education lead Adrian to numerous speaking engagements and publish hundreds of motivational and educational personal finance articles that have been featured all across the internet, including Out & About Nashville, Financialli Focused, and The Lavender Table, among many other publications.
He is currently positioning himself to become a real estate investor by 2020, and aspires to secure a million dollar net-worth by age forty. When Adrian is not busy helping people grow financially, he enjoys tinkering with cars, traveling with his spouse, and doing home improvement projects.
