Episode 103: How She Earned $700K in College Scholarships with Pam Andrews

My Guest on the Show…


Pam Andrews is a College Admissions Coach and Scholarship Strategist, but more importantly she helped her son earn over $700,000 in scholarship money to pay for both undergraduate and graduate school!

This is $700,000 in money that her son WILL NOT have to pay back in the form of student loans.

How did she do it? This is exactly why I asked Pam to come on the show. As a parent of two kids and the 5% inflation rate for college tuition, I needed to know EXACTLY how her son was able to get that kind of money to put towards the undergrad and the graduate college of his choice.

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.
