Marcus Pearce and his wife, Sarah, enjoyed a great big wedding, setup a business with all the trimmings … and found themselves in more than $50,000 in credit card debt (not including business overdrafts and loans).

It’s been a rocky road for Marcus to become a property owner, but having knuckled on some timeless financial wisdom from books including Think and Grow Rich, The Richest Man in Babylon and more, Marcus shares his story from bad debt to good debt.

When he’s not discussing property, Marcus is talking longevity and life design. He is the author of Your Exceptional Life and runs a 2-day event in Byron Bay each year called Create Your Exceptional Life. You can find out more at
