Episode 001: $52k Paid Off in 7 Months

Welcome to the very first Episode of the the Money Peach TV Podcast! In this episode, I tell you a little about me. How did my wife and I go from completely broke, paycheck-to-paycheck, and without hope, to then paying off $52k in 7 months?


It was hard.

It seemed impossible.

Then we did it.

The truth is money isn’t about the numbers, it’s about your behavior. No one signs up for a credit card and thinks: “I cannot wait to carry a $15k balance at 24.99% and make minimum payments on it for the rest of my life.

But isn’t that what many do?

No one says, “I cannot wait to buy this brand new car that loses 60% of it’s value in the first 4 years, and then have to trade it in because I am upside down in the loan.

But this is normal, right?

No one thinks to themselves, “Wouldn’t it be nice to pay for a vacation on our credit card, and then make monthly payments on that same vacation fo the next 18 months.

You get the point.

The first step to solving your problems with money is to take back control of your money. This always starts with the Budget.

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.
