My Guest on the Show…

Michelle Schroeder-Gardner is one in a million.

In 2011 she had started her blog Making Sense of Cents as a hobby to share her ideas of how she was managing money in her early 20s. It wasn’t until after six months of blogging for fun, she was told by a friend she could actually make a few bucks through her blog.

Six months later she made her first $100 and began to realize there was room for growth. Fast forward to 2017 and she is consistently earning over $100,000 every single month from her blog!

Not only is she generating an incredible income from her laptop, she is also doing all of this while living in an RV full-time with her husband so they can travel all over the United States.

I wanted Michelle to come on the show to share how she is as normal as normal can be, yet she also has such an incredible accomplishment – financial freedom and the ability to live the life many only dream about.

During the interview, I ask…

What sets Michelle apart from the thousands of bloggers who are trying to do the same thing she is?

  • How many hours per week does she really work?
  • What does a normal day look like for Michelle?
  • How does she generate income from her blog?
  • How does one really live full-time in an RV?

Chris Peach Author 150x150

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.
