Talaat and his wife Tai started His and Her Money back in 2015 and have become known as America’s Couple Money Experts. They have an incredible YouTube channel with 144k subscribers and one of their highest viewed video is where they walk into the bank and pay off their mortgage!

From starting with a negative net worth, lies about money inside the marriage, and a pile of debt — the two almost didn’t make it.

During our conversation, Talaat explains the steps they took to rebuild the trust inside the marriage and money, how they paid off their $30k in debt, and then how they paid off their mortgage in 5 years…starting out on a single income teacher’s salary!

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.
