My Guest on the Show…


Financial planning shouldn’t just be for the uber wealthy.

Chris Hutchins is coming on the show to talk about the problem we are beginning to face when it comes to getting professional financial planning advice: the cost.

A financial plan takes time to complete and that time costs $2,500 on average…and all that gets you is a one-time plan.

In addition, our lives have changed over the past few decades and fewer people are working a 30-year career, retiring with a pension, and then living happily ever after.

Instead, what you see today is a constant move in careers, changes in life plans, moving all over the country/world, and countless other changes that are much different than what was once the norm.

And each time you make a life change, is it fair to have to spend $2,500 to adjust your plan with a financial planner?

Heck no!

Basically there are three different ways to get professional financial wealth building advice:

  1. Meeting with a financial advisor (Expensive and individualized)
  2. 100% robo-advisor (Cheap and cookie-cutter)
  3. Hybrid approach (A mixture of both)

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.
