My Guest on the Show…

Jonathan Barkl is the Co-founder and CEO of AirGarage, Inc., a new app connecting homeowners and businesses to those looking for affordable parking.

Jonathan is also 20 years old…

I asked Jonathan to come on the show to share his incredible story of how he went from creating a $500 per hour side hustle in high school to then attending college AND starting a business which has already changed the trajectory of his life forever.

Jonathan explains how he went from a problem he personally had with parking on college campuses, to creating a solution, and then providing an incredible new opportunity for everyone involved.

The broke college student can now find affordable parking, the homeowner can now generate income via their own driveway, and AirGarage generates revenue by connecting the dots.

How does it exactly work, what does Jonathan do everyday that very few (including college students) do, and what does the future look like for AirGarage?

You are going to hear it all and be absolutely amazed and inspired by this 20-year-old’s drive for success.

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.
