My Guest on the Show…


Today’s guest on the show shares her incredible story of how she paid off $30,000 worth of debt in only 96 days.

Yes, you read correctly – ninety-six days.

Meet Mary Wheeler – founder of Abundant Wealth Solutions and a financial coach helping people destroy their student loan debt so they can create their own gateway towards REAL financial freedom.

Just like many of us, Mary didn’t start off a financial rockstar. She shares how she grew up in the projects of Mississippi and always had to struggle to simply get by. She carried this belief of money with her into her adulthood and graduated college with $30,000 worth of debt and no plan to pay it off.

After a few years of making interest-only payments and struggling to get by, she realized she would have to change the way she handled money if she wanted to change her life and her family tree.

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.
