My Guest on the Show…

A few months ago I came across this really incredible FinTech (Financial Technology) software called Trim.

Trim does many things like sending me a message letting me know how many subscriptions I have active, how much I am (over) paying, and even allows me to cancel anything and everything with one push of a button!

The way I think about Trim is this: it’s the virtual assistant in the background of my life, working 24/7 for free, and making me look like a financial rockstar when it comes to the everyday money.

Which is why I wanted to talk to the man behind Trim – Thomas Smyth. Thomas is my favorite kind of entrepreneur. He took an idea running around in his head, gave it a direction, and created an incredible product with a very strong WHY behind it – to automate our good financial habits so we can focus on the things in life we would much rather focus on…versus spending an hour on the phone with the cable company negotiating a bill (Trim does this).

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.
