FinCon is the conference PT actually started in 2011 as a way for people inside the world of financial blogging to come together and create a community that had never been created until then.

Fast forward just a few years later, and FinCon started to take on it’s own identity. Lifelong friendships have formed, small blogs have turned into multi-million dollar media empires, and the people who attend now label themselves FinConners.

Which is why the conference continues to grow each year, with over 1,700 people flying into Dallas to be part of what FinCon 2017.

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.
