My Guest on the Show…

Over the past 6 years, I have watched Sheila build her home-based business and start earning enough “side hustle” cash to walk away from her very lucrative full-time sales career inside Corporate America.

You and I have seen a ton of people start a home-based business and quickly drop out after they spent hundreds (or maybe thousands) of dollars with very little success and the only thing left to show for it is a bedroom closet stocked full of product.

Or I am sure many of you have been to a friend’s party where she brings in a rep to show off some products you don’t really need and then asks you to “sign up” so you can start making easy money right away, right?

This is what I at first wondered when Sheila was getting started, however 6 years later I still notice she is building her home-based business and making a full-time income.

And she works on her own schedule, around the kids nap times, and works 15-20 hours per week from her laptop in her small town in central Arizona.

Of course, no one is saying building a business is going to be easy and you definitely will NOT get rich quick. However, Sheila will share her plan for “getting rich slowly” and why she thinks she has found so much success building her home-based business.

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.
