Episode 054: From Schoolteacher to Nutrition Coach to Debt Freedom

My Guest on the Show…

Amanda Walker from Awalkmyway.com is a successful nutritional coach who has had tremendous growth in her business and has even created a cult-like following in her first year as a macros coach.

I ask Amanda to tell her story of leaving her job as a schoolteacher to pursue her passion as a successful entrepreneur in the niche of nutritional coaching – specifically macros coaching.

What is macros coaching?

Amanda explains what “tracking your macros” actually means, why it is important for everyone to “macro”, and why this has become such a popular trend over the past few years. Whether you are a new mom trying to get back into shape or a power lifter trying to build more muscle, tracking your macros is a must.

Much like I said many times in regards to your money – what gets measured gets managed – the same holds true for your nutritional goals as well.

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.
