About Garrett Strong
On this page you’ll discover a brief overview of my life, including why I do what I do… people I’ve helped… results I’ve gotten… and how I could possibly help you out. That might be through my products, through my free reports & videos, or maybe reading my blog posts. That’s up to you.
Either way, I hope you enjoy
Growing up – literally as far back as I can remember – I loved to work with my hands and I would stick to something until I got it perfect. I am a bit of a perfectionist. I remember being about 7 or 8 years old building a bridge across the creek in my backyard that was so solid my 250 lb father walked across it without thinking twice.
I’m not sure why but I have always been a risk taker, which is probably why my public school teaching career didn’t stick. Life seems boring to me if I’m not taking risks. So I learn new hobbies to keep my mind going.
Welding really struck a chord with me, and I’ve been passionately doing it for almost 6 years now.
The first time I lit an oxy acetylene torch and started welding my first weld bead I was hooked!
My fascination with welding eventually led me to start welding with the other welding processes. I quickly found that welding with an arc welding process like MIG (metal inert gas) is the best route for beginners to learn quickly with.
Because of my prior experience learning to weld, I realized there really wasn’t any quality welding training for beginners in an online video format. I mean, I found several resources for professional welders, but not much for beginners who want step-by-step “hold your hand” instructions on how to start welding.
This led me to create MakeMoneyWelding.com so I can help all those beginners and hobbyists out there who want to learn welding fast, without having to sort through all the garbage.
Results I've Gotten Beginners
I’ve also been featured on the Longevity Welders website in the video training section, and have gotten hundreds of thousands of views on my Youtube channel.
Of the thousands of members I’ve helped, here are a few welding projects that people have sent me over the years.
And here is what just a few of my satisfied customers have had to say about my training videos.
"I am truly amazed..."
Garrett, I am truly amazed! How many people selling welding programs actually ask how you are doing? You are the first one! I really appreciate your concern.
Yes, everything is going along just fine. I find the modules chock-full in information, tips and tricks. I think I posted before that I have done some arc welding with my uncle's 40+ year old buzz box and got lousy results.

"I have nothing but good things to say about Garrett and his series of video's."
This is exactly what I was looking for as a newbie welder. Having last welded in high school some 40 years ago I felt inadequate trying my hand at mig. Garrett's video's helped me make that transition. Great video's, keep up the good work Garrett.

"Your videos are great, easy to understand and informative."
I'm so lucky to have found your course when I was looking around the net, your videos are great, easy to understand and informative. I told my boyfriend I'm a pro welder now, in my head anyway haha, but putting wire to metal will paint a different picture I'm sure. Either way, you have shown me how to go about it and for that I'm extremely grateful.

“Excellent videos to get the beginner welder started …”
“Being that I am new to welding, these videos have been very informative. They definitely pointed me in the right direction and I have been able to successfully practice welding butt joints, t joints, lap joints, and corner joints. Keep in mind; I never welded in my life. These are excellent videos to get the beginner welder started. I can’t wait to perfect my welding joints so that I can start on some welding projects.”

Those are just a TINY handful of the results I’ve gotten.
To be quite honest it’s hard to even keep track anymore.
How One Beginner Welded His First Motorcycle Project Using My Methods
It was a cold day in late January, 2015 when Mark Roach contacted me.
He was working on a motorcycle project, and he’d reached a point where he needed some welding done. Mark had never welded before, and was afraid of what could go wrong if he tried.
He always thought it was dangerous.
As a result, his motorcycle project sat stale for many months until one day a friend asked him why he didn’t just do the welding himself. Mark told him he was avoiding it, and his friend suggested he look into MIG welding because beginners pick it up pretty easily.
Mark hesitated but he knew it was time to overcome his fear.
Later that evening, Mark was searching the internet for MIG welding training, and he came across makemoneywelding.com. He read a few articles, scrolled through the feedback from members, and he decided to give it a shot.
He downloaded the free report and video course, and he was so shocked at how fast and easy it was that he emailed me to tell me about his experience…
Excellent on-line course
“I've been working on a motorcycle project and had reached a point where I needed some welding done. Project had stalled because I was afraid to tackle the welding. Saw your web site and glad I did! Can't wait to get into the shop and start practicing!!! Feel confident I can get it done thanks to your info. You covered so many areas that I had questions about. I would highly recommend this to any beginner that needs the basics to get started.”
