My Guest on the Show…

Allow myself to introduce….myself 🙂 

Today on the show I am not bringing on a guest for an interview and we are taking a week away from talking about money.

Instead, we are shifting to talk about the one thing I feel everyone needs in their lives at any stage of life: A Mastermind.

What the heck is a Mastermind?

To make it as simple as possible: a Mastermind group is a group of 5-7 people who get together on a regular basis to work towards individual goals within the group, while using the group and a vehicle for achieving the highest level of success in whatever you’re working towards.

I say this with confidence: I would not have the level of success I have today (in all areas of life) if it wasn’t for the two Mastermind groups I am part of.

BONUS: MasterMind Cheat Sheet

In the episode I promised to put together a cheat sheet and worksheet to help you get started forming your own MasterMind group.

Here you are…

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.


  • Hi Chris,

    Thank you for your valuable information and congratulations on your 100th episode. I feel a mastermind group is similar to a network group BNI in particular. I believe I. His concept because this a win win for all sides.
    Thanks for your info!
