My Guest on the Show…

Andrea Robinson, Morning Show News Anchor and my wife…

I asked (begged) my wife to come back on the show after popular demand from Episode 24.

Andrea Robinson is the morning show news anchor on Phoenix, Arizona’s #1 morning show. Five days a week, Andrea joins over 1 million viewers in their homes, at work, and on social media to deliver the news, talk about the latest trends, and even give her audience a glimpse into her daily life.

I met my beautiful wife in college and I have watched her take the vision of a news career to fruition. Her journey from hopeful college student, to news media professional, and then full-time mommy is truly amazing.

Here’s what we talk about:

  • The early days starting off at $10/hr in a “closet” and reporting traffic conditions
  • Working a second job to make to pay the bills
  • Overcoming rejection (twice)
  • The bank robbery (seriously)
  • Her favorite interview
  • “Balancing” work, play, kids, dinner, husband, and life
  • Best piece of advice she would give her younger self

Now, I have a few questions for you all…

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.
