About Justin Garner

I have been self employed since 2003 but have been an entrepreneur since I was a young boy. My first real business was a Martial Arts School. It was very successful but not without it’s ups and downs. I opened it at 23 years old and was super successful right out of the gate breaking organization records and doing some incredible things. After an attempt at expanding into multiple locations, I learned several very valuable lessons and have applied them to all aspects of my life. I then went on to become a business coach for hundreds of Martial Arts Business Owners across the nation as well as manage the web design, digital marketing and advertising for multiple companies and brands. In 2014, my first son was born and changed my life. Since then, I made the decision to form Garner Group to create a company around my gifts of teaching, coaching and marketing.

I am overwhelmingly blessed to able to share my gifts and talent with multiple industries such as: Martial Arts Schools, Gymnastics Academies, Dance Schools, Medical Supply Manufacturers, Various Online eCommerce Stores and more.
