Greyson Peltier has been involved with Internet broadcasting, business ventures and activism projects since he was 12 years old. However, his first foray into the world of finance and the media came at 7 years old, when he appeared on CNBC’s The Suze Orman Show.
Later, Greyson took to the radio airwaves on ESPN’s AM 830 KLAA, appearing on air with the likes of Roger Lodge (former Blind Date host), Dave Smith, and Jeff Biggs. He was named the Resident Political Analyst of The Sports Lodge for his ability to provide cogent perspectives on politics in a manner that was cohesive with the show’s sports format. In addition, Greyson hosted his own Internet radio show, was a columnist for Huffington Post subsidiary Patch, and worked with a nonprofit media organization primarily covering financial regulatory legislation.
Simultaneously, he helped to build Fitt Enterprises, Inc. into a leader in a critical component of direct response television: testimonial group participant nutrition. The company originally started as a healthy foods takeout business called Fitt Meals To Go, which received an Award of Excellence from the County of Orange in 2010 and held a 5 Star Yelp Rating throughout its operation. Fitt Meals To Go was also a pioneer in healthy school lunches, as its School Lunch Solutions program was introduced into a small group of Orange County private schools with great success years prior to federal intervention to improve public school lunches. Realizing that the facility where Fitt operated had sufficient capacity to support other businesses that did not have a commercial kitchen, Virtual Kitchen Solutions was launched, primarily under Peltier’s auspice. But the true star of the business was its partnership with a leading television infomercial company to prepare meals in accordance with the diet books included with fitness products. Fitt was contracted to provide three meals a day and snacks to test groups of as many as fifty that would later show their results on infomercials aired nationwide.
He has also researched various methods of using the power of finance and markets to help the less fortunate. These include education, socially responsible investing, novel loan underwriting methods, and assistance programs designed to promote self-sufficiency.
Having graduated high school at age 15, Greyson earned his degree with honors at age 20 from the University of Southern California, majoring in Political Science. He also attained five Associate’s degrees in the fields of Communications, Economics, Business Administration (AA and AS-T), and Social and Behavioral Sciences from Coastline College in Newport Beach, CA. While in school, Greyson put his desire to serve into action by volunteering with the IRS’ Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program and by co-founding his school’s first honor society, Alpha Beta Gamma. Additionally, he conducted research on the political preferences of young evangelicals using a unique discontinuity analysis method to isolate and determine their attitudes relating to social justice.
Greyson is a Christian and wants to serve God through helping people in need with the skills and resources God gives him. His charity tab on this site will be updated with information on his efforts.
