My Guest on the Show…

On the show this week I am exposing Money Peach behind-the-scenes. Over the past few weeks I have interviewed some of the most successful entrepreneurs in their specific niche and have learned a ton myself as the result of having them all on the show.

However, all of the entrepreneurs up to this point have (or just about) “made it”. They are wildly successful in both their personal and professional lives, which is why I asked them to come on the show in the first place. But, one thing I haven’t done on the podcast yet is to bring on someone who was still getting started, still finding their way, and still growing their business from the ground up.

In this episode I am completely transparent with my own business, Money Peach. What started as an idea (in my bath robe) at my kitchen table has grown into a powerful blog, weekly podcast, and an online training program that stretches all over the United States and now the entire globe!

In this episode I share with the the top 10 things I have learned growing my business and the lessons I wish I would have known starting on day one. This episode was a little intimidating for me to record since I do share more about the business than I have before, but I also know this is going to help you with your upcoming dreams, goals, and plans.


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.
