Famous author and scientist, Peter Senge once said, “All great things have small beginnings.” Such words are especially true for Garrain Jones whose origins were quite humble.

From his moribund encounters and family loss to thefts to imprisonment for drug trafficking, his life looked bleak till he turned it around with a newfound sense of direction.

Garrain’s philosophy rests on the belief that a changed perspective is the source of greatness in a person’s life. He has devoted his efforts to coaching others in finding that shift for distinction. Garrain will be speaking at CapCon 6.

Who Is Garrain Jones?

Garrain “Steph” Jones was born July 3rd, 1979 in Houston, Texas. At the age of four, his life took a sad turn, starting with his first near-death experience and his parents getting a divorce. When he was six, he had a second near-death experience. He almost drowned from a prank gone wrong on a fishing trip. 

At age twelve, his father, a drug dealer, was murdered. Without examples to look up to, Garrain began a life of drug pushing, stealing, and stripping. His mother struggled to make ends meet while he struggled with school and being taken in and out of juvenile detention centers. When he turned 17, he improved his life and worked on his grades at school with sufficient success, and subsequently sought a change of environment for better growth and direction.

At age 18, he discovered a sense of purpose in the book The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale. He undertook more productive careers in modeling and music video appearances. He got back into drug smuggling which earned him a two-year sentence in 2002, a time Garrain used to reorient himself with the book that initially inspired him. 

Leaving Ludacris

After he got out, he worked hard and got a $500,000 deal with a famous rapper, Ludacris at Def Jam where he wrote songs. He eventually left the label, a decision that resulted in living in his car and a debt of over $200,000. Things changed after he met a stranger at a gas station who had asked for money and offered Garrain the expression “change your mindset, change your life.”

He took those words to heart and made an effort to change his life, which he did successfully with his health, relationships, life partner, and businesses. These led him to become an author and life coach, making him a millionaire at 37. He has inspired others to bring positive changes to their lives through his book, Change Your Mindset, Change Your Life. Garrain currently runs his transformational coaching program via his platform, Garrain Jones and Mpowered Brotherhood
