Mark Asher

Mark Asher was once co-host of the #1 sports radio talk show in Arizona. He made up half of the “Gambo and Ash Show”, the local drive-time afternoon radio program where local sports dominated the airwaves for the drivers of Arizona.

It’s unheard of for a radio show to last 5 years in today’s world and the Gambo and Ash show went on for 12 years. But as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end. Their radio show was #1, Mark was living out his dream, and life was great – until one afternoon when he came in and was fired in a blink of an eye.

I asked Mark to come on the show to share what it’s like to go from #1 and on top of the world, to then having your life completely flipped upside down in a blink of an eye.

However, just like every good story, there is a happy ending that Mark never imagined happening.

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.
