Meet the Team
It’s time to meet the new Peak Prosperity team!
As my long-time followers and subscribers know, there was a bit of turbulence as my former business partner and I went separate directions. That was finalized on May 12th, 2021.
Here it is just about a month later and our new team is not only in place but is already firing on all cylinders.
I am beyond lucky to have attracted such a talented team, and my only regret is all the very talented people who I didn’t (yet) have a place for.
This team is working hard to improve everything about this site, much of which will be happening behind the scenes. Our main aims are to significantly improve your experience with the site, and to make it more attractive and welcoming to new people.
I have decided to invest heavily in the business and that begins with people. Now we’re focusing on rebuilding the website (probably from scratch), and while I can’t give you a date yet to expect the new site, I will say that we are going as fast as we can.
Without further ado, please join me in giving these people a very warm Peak Prosperity welcome!
Aaron McKeon, Business Manager and Head of Technology
Aaron McKeon, member of the Peak Prosperity Tribe since 2014 and former corporate renaissance man turned country homesteader, joins the Peak Prosperity team as Business Manager and Head of Technology.
During his 15-year career at a publicly traded medical device company, he eventually became the company’s only other general manager besides the CEO, personally running an $8 million sales and manufacturing operation in Australia / New Zealand. Prior roles spanned IT, sales, marketing, and operations, giving him a rich understanding of all major areas of the business. Ever since his high school days running his own company building websites, he has also maintained a passion for developing websites, one he now brings to the table at Peak Prosperity.
In 2014, Aaron discovered the Crash Course and has been a member of the Tribe ever since. He and his wife spent their time in Australia learning permaculture and, upon moving back to the United States, left Corporate America to build a homestead in New Hampshire. He has truly taken the Peak Prosperity ethos to heart.
Aaron’s aim is to maintain alignment between the vision of Peak Prosperity, the business strategy, and its day-to-day operations.
Jeanne Sheffield, Head of Marketing and Strategy
Leading our Marketing and Strategy department is Jeanne Sheffield of Charleston, SC.
Jeanne spent nearly 15 years rising the ranks of corporate America, managing many areas of the business from retail operations to data analytics and ultimately customer experience marketing. However, she left the comfort and security of the corporate world to pursue her own entrepreneurial goals; ultimately launching 2 successful businesses of her own, a marketing management consultancy as well as a niche self-directed IRA real estate investment agency. When Jeanne learned that Chris, one of her most trusted resources during the COVID-19 pandemic, was looking to build a world class team of experts to spread his critical message far and wide, she did not hesitate to offer her talents and skills in order to help Chris help others during this time of great crisis and transition.
A born adventurer and of an eternally curious mind, Jeanne is always looking for new ways to engage with and learn about life, people and the world around us. She is an avid world traveler, speaks 5 languages, and can be found in her leisure time travelling North America in her sustainable RV, chasing her unique version of the American Dream.
Livio Sanchez, Head of Production
Award-winning editor, producer, and director Livio Sanchez joins the Peak Prosperity team as Head of Production.
Throughout his career, Livio has worked with numerous world-renowned advertising agencies, brands, studios, and foundations, spanning an immensely diverse and distinguished body of work – from documentaries, commercials, and music videos, to feature films and 360°/VR experiences. His work has earned top industry honors, including a Cannes Entertainment Lion Grand Prix, AICP Most Next Award, and Television Academy Honors.
After stumbling across the Crash Course and attending a Peak seminar in Denver, Livio’s collaborations with Chris began earnestly in 2011 with a visit to Zuccotti Park during Occupy Wall Street to witness firsthand what was really going on.
Livio brings his passion for visual and emotional resonance to the Peak Prosperity community, helping the tribe to craft stories with maximum impact.
Whitney Easton, Content Manager
Whitney Easton, an anthropologist, works with Chris and the team to change minds and build resilience through content.
Whitney has worked in both industry and academia and anthropology’s context-rich, holistic lens on human experience is always at the heart of her work. She has consulted on projects for major international clients, ranging from design research for global mobility ecosystems and financial wellness products, to cultural analysis of pastoralists’ livelihoods. For her dissertation, she conducted long-term ethnographic field research on agricultural change, livelihoods, and tourism in Italy. She is committed to building sustainable food systems and is glad that Peak Prosperity has a healthy contingent of food producers, homesteaders, and gardeners.
Whitney is a lifelong asker of “big questions” and in her early days, her father urged her to “just watch the Crash Course!” Finally, she did, and she doesn’t regret a thing. Her “resilience” shirt is far and away her favorite.
