Garrett Gunderson came from a long line of coal miners. His father, grandfather, and great-grandfather were all coal miners. And yet he NEVER set foot in a mine. His parents invested time, money and love into him so that he would have the resources and confidence to create new opportunities for himself and for his family. And that’s just what he did. In 1994, he took 3rd place at the Rural Young Entrepreneur public speaking competition and was accepted into South Utah’s Governor’s Honors Academy alongside inventors, scientists, senators, and leaders. In 1996, he won Young Entrepreneur of the Year. In 1998, he was investing and earning more than his professors.
Garrett continued with this sort of successful growth over the years. Personal losses of business partners and then of his parents cause him to stop and reflect and eventually write his first book, Killing Sacred Cows, in August 2008. The Great Recession between 2007 to 2009 was a difficult time for him and his family. He was over-leveraged with real-estate, doing all he could to hold it all together. His health and marriage suffered. Then, in 2010, he began to rebuild his marriage and his family while his partner handled the business.
The Wealth Factory was created in 2014, with a vision to liberate one million people by supporting them to create financial independence. In 2017, Garrett decided to try comedy for the first time and thought he might be funny. After trying a few of these over the next couple of years, Garrett was ready to go the full sha-bang and he created a show to teach people about money through comedy. The show is called “THE AMERICAN DREAM.”
