My Guest on the Show…

I received an email from Brian of Clean Lots and he told me, “I’ve been cleaning up litter in and around commercial properties for over 30 years and I’ve been earning a 6 figure income from it.”

Wow! That is an email I’ll read all day long!

I decided to head on over to his website and sure enough this guy started a side hustle back in 1981 and now generates an incredible income doing what he calls “walking around parking lots and picking up trash”.

Since one of the most common questions I receive is “how can I earn extra money to…..?” I decided to bring Brian on the show to share how anyone (literally a-n-y-o-n-e) can start their own litter pickup service and generate income right away.

I ask Brian…

  • To share his story
  • What is the first step if someone were to get started today?
  • How much can one really earn when getting started?
  • Why there is the need for people to pick up litter?
  • How many hours per week and when can you put in the work?
  • How can we find out more?

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.
