Welcome to Adventures with Anne #8

First Call Security and Sound – A full service security, surveillance – Audio & Visual – Home Automation

The beginning…

Pete grew up in New Jersey. Moved to Los Angeles at 18 where he began his journey of “moments of impact” which is what he calls each person that entered his life, at a specific time, for a specific reason, leaving him with a valuable life lesson.

His background:

Pete brings business management and sales credibility from his vast experience with some of the top companies in America. Being the top sales executive for firms like Stanley Steemer and Terminix were a good springboard for Pete when he was recruited by the #1 security company in the world to bring his unique, motivational style to ADT.

Pete wasted no time becoming the “Top Sales Manager” for ADT Security Services for 6 consecutive quarters before being promoted to Regional Sales Manager and soon after, became the youngest National Sales Trainer in ADT history since 1874.

As a small business owner, Pete has developed, managed, and successfully sold two security companies, a dry-cleaning store, a sports apparel company, and developed the valley’s most successful and largest business networking group called Desert Elite Referral Partners.

Pete brings real world experience and a proven track record with his BE ALPHA message on networking and marketing your business. Pete has the unique “in the trenches” approach that helped him grow networking groups from $300,000 a year in passed referral business to over $2.79M in a single year. He has the experience of having launched, independent start up networking and marketing groups and hand selecting members that complement one another and create a CULTURE OF COMMUNITY unparalleled by competitors.

Pete’s passions in life.

If there is one thing, above all others, that Pete Chryss prides himself on, its being innovative in economic development and using that creativity to “train up” the next generation of entrepreneurs. Pete believes that entrepreneurship is the great equalizer. Entrepreneurship knows no race, gender, religion, or creed and it only recognizes a dream and hard work.

What is your why?  My why is to honor the sacrifices that my grandfather made to escape Nazi captivity and get to America by making sure that my life is a testimony to that courage. To insure that my children and grandchildren never forget where they came from but also…..understand the “foundation” under the “house” that they are building.


Goals for the future?

There are so many people that feel defeated….feel not included…..feel “less than”. I know that feeling. We need strong advocates for all. We need a steady hand with a confident voice to represent our needs in our valley. That is why it is my goal in the near future to run for public office and fight for the unique opportunity and the distinct privilege to be your voice.



List 4 unique things that most people don’t know about you.

1.The grandson of Polish immigrants who escaped the Hitler death camps, Pete always felt an obligation to fulfill his grandfather’s dream…….the American dream.






2. I was homeless at 16 for 2 years.

3. I hosted a Christian radio talk show on Remnant Radio discussing faith in business and family affairs.









4. Blessed husband to Mary, proud father to 8 grown children, and doting Papa to 7 grandchildren.
