My Guest on the Show…

One of the questions I get all the time is, “Peach, how did you get your wife on board with your money plan?

First off – HA! You obviously don’t know my wife…she doesn’t just get on board like that. There was a lot of trial and error, a few hiccups, and in the end we won with our money together.

I bring on my wife Andrea to give you her perspective on:

  • What it takes to get on board
  • The struggles we faced
  • What she did that changed everything
  • How much she spends on a dress today vs 6 years ago
  • Our “entertainment” monthly budget
  • The most difficult thing she faced when climbing towards financial freedom
  • What life is like now we are debt free


What you will find in this episode is the raw truth: it wasn’t easy. The number one cause of divorce in North America is money fights and money problems. Somehow we managed to stay married through the ups and downs of our finances, but in the end we are stronger than ever both financially and inside our marriage.

Money truly does touch every aspect of your life…especially your marriage.

Chris Peach Author 150x150

Chris Petrie

Chris (Peach) Petrie is a personal finance expert, money coach, speaker and podcaster.

In 2011, Chris and his family were exhausted from living paycheck-to-paycheck and facing a mountain of debt. They started going against the society standards of misbehaving with money and made the decision to take back control of their lives and money. Within seven months they paid off $52,000, started saving like crazy and began building real wealth.

The word spread fast and Chris started showing friends how to create a budget over dinner. Soon after he started showing their friends how to do the same and eventually Chris started teaching personal finance classes around the community. As the need for the classes grew, Chris launched Money Peach in 2015.

Money Peach was created to help everyday people remove the stress and fear of money by showing them how to save more, make more, and keep more of their money.

Chris Peach has been featured in places like Business Insider, The Huffington Post, Elite Daily, and CheddarTV.

When Chris isn’t at “work” he can be found at the Crossfit gym or riding on the fire truck — Chris is also a full-time firefighter in Phoenix, Arizona.
