Paychecks & Balances
Marcus Garrett is the author of Debt Free or Die Trying, a book about the sometimes serious, most-times amusing story of how he buried himself in over $30,000 in debt and dug his way out by age 30. Marcus was originally born and raised in the great state of Texas where he obtained a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration…(continue) after surviving the mean streets of the inner suburbs. His goal is to help Millennials see that living a debt free life and living life do not have to be mutually exclusive. Rich Jones, his co-host, has been working in HR & Recruiting by day for nearly a decade (though what he does by night is far more interesting).
