Florian“If you’re serious about making a change, Garrett is your guy. He quickly went from budget teacher to friend to life coach of sorts.

I now have numbers that I can look at each month that give me muuuuch needed confidence (or ass-kicking) about how much I’m spending on certain things.

It makes it so much easier to make decisions about what to cut and what to spend more on. I’m grateful to my core for my decision to invest the money upfront in our work.”

Have you ever thought…

  •  I‘m working harder than ever, so why do I feel like I’m living month-to-month?
  •  As an entrepreneur/freelancer, how do I deal with variable income and surprise expenses so my emotions don’t constantly mirror the swings in my bank account?
  • How much income do I really need to be happy and meet my goals? Right now, I always feel like it’s never enough.

As a money coach—much like a fitness coach—we work together. You’re never alone in figuring out (or laying out) a great plan for your finances.


Erica - pineapple cropped“This is for someone who needs the wool pulled off their eyes.

I found examining my past spending and going through my budget with a fine-tooth comb to be the most eye-opening and helpful part of this experience. I’m most excited to feel hopeful again about getting out of debt and knowing I can do it.

Our generation needs to think about our future selves and not be so stuck in the now. Garrett’s program helps the “now” not feel so scary!”

I’ll help you:

  • Understand where you’re at (this isn’t as scary as it sounds!)
  • Get clear on where you would like to be.
  • Help you create a step-by-step (and easy to execute) plan to get you there.

In addition, you’ll receive:

  • Smart guidance: no more weighing big money matters on your own.
  • Caring accountability: to keep you on track with gentle loving nudges as needed (including an occasional pat on the back or kick in the rear!).
  • Customized feedback: Together we’ll uncover your goals, values and money metrics, so feedback will be specific to what matters most to you.

You’ll also get tools and techniques to help you feel empowered around money while creating an Awesome balance of work and play in your life.


Pete“Garrett is a down-to-earth, brilliant, fun money coach to work with.

He will help you achieve money goals you thought were hard or impossible. My wife Annesa recently jumped for joy when she saw our House Downpayment account balance. That’s a first!

The accountability he provides helps his clients live abundant and Awesome lives.”
