After surviving the mean streets of the inner suburbs in the great state of Texas, Mr. Garrett obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration and work experience as a Certified Internal Auditor, Financial and Data Analyst. As a Senior Millennial, his inflated self-esteem was amplified with participation trophies given to him without merit during his most impressionable years. Somehow he overcame these personal roadblocks to become an award-winning freelance writer on topics running from love and relationships to debt and personal finances.
Marcus Garrett is a motivational speaker, staff development manager, and author of D.E.B.T. Free or Die Trying: How I Buried Myself $30,000 in Debt and Dug My Way Out. He co-founded Paychecks and Balances, LLC.—an award-winning business dedicated to helping working professionals make money, save money, and get out of debt before selling his stake in 2020.
