My Guest on the Show…


Co-founder and CEO of Blooom, Chris Costello, comes on the show today to talk about your 401k, 401a, 403b, 457 or TSP.

Chris spent his entire life in the financial advising world and now he’s blowing the whistle on the crap that he says has been going on for way too long.

He’s talking about the outrageous fees, the terms no one understands (or is supposed to understand), and the ridiculous amount of greed the folks from Wall Street posses when handling your retirement funds.

In 2013, he founded Blooom which he coins as the new way to 401(k).

Chris is extremely passionate about investing and saving for your future and he doesn’t disappoint. We may have had to “BLEEEP” him out a few times during the show, but I completely get it – he’s seen these maniacs ripping people off for way too long and it’s time for a change.

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.
