Peter Jeppson

Powerfully impacted at age 19 by a serious car accident, Peter Jeppson knows first-hand the crushing burden of the financial problems facing most people today. After Peter was terribly burned in this auto accident, he spent several months in St. Luke Hospital’s ICU in Boise, Idaho before being referred to specialists in Salt Lake City to graft back he eyelids, nose, lips and ear.

As a young college student, Peter didn’t feel a need to have health insurance, so the amount of money he owed to the doctors and hospital skyrocketed. Peter was forced to study and learn money management principles in order to pay off all the medical bills. This successful experience inspired Peter to Co-Author Money Mastery, a principled centered money management system: Control Spending, Eliminate Debt and Maximize Retirement income. This training is used in many Utah School Districts to teach high school students how to manage their money.

Today Peter is a Master Coach for Dave Ramsey, a Retirement Specialist for Federal Employee Advocates and has been an adjunct faculty member for several colleges.

Motivational Speaker & Educator

Peter has been inspiring people as a nationally recognized motivational speaker, author and financial mentor for over 45 years. He has lectured to over a million people in well over 10,000 speaking engagements on how to handle personal finances so money problems. The goal is to help people create a money management system so they don’t disrupt their family life, rather strengthens the relationships at home.


Peter is the co-author of the book, Money: What Financial Experts Will Never Tell You; and of the four-book series How to Spend Your Way to Financial Success; and the Money Mastery Personal Financial Management System; and The Peter Jeppson Story motivational audio program,


Peter has a B. S. degree majoring in Finance from the University of Utah. He specializes in retirement Planning, using fixed guaranteed insurance products.
