My Guest on the Show…

Up until recently, real estate investing was only an option for the top 1% income earner – meaning the average Joe investor had to overcome a steep price tag to cross the barrier of entry into real estate investing.

Those days are now officially over.

My guest on the show is Craig Cecilio, real estate investor, expert crowdfunder, and founder of Diversyfund.

I asked Craig to come on the show to discuss how crowdfunding works, why it’s so accessible for everyone, and how technology is making it even more affordable for the everyday investor.

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.
