After appearing on the show Shark Tank and gaining international attention, he sold his company to Snapchat for $54 million.


When Garrett and his wife Jessica were figuring out what to do with that huge amount of money, they decided that they wanted to travel the world.

But instead of using the newfound fortune to fund their adventure, they put it all into savings and sold everything they owned for traveling money.

When asked why they decided to be frugal while traveling, the couple revealed that they felt uncomfortable being thoughtless with money and wanted to show humility by living frugality.

The family documents their journey on their Instagram and YouTube, where they share their adventures from all over the world.
