About Us


Square One Financial Group is the result of a shared idea between two Husky Entrepreneurs, (Michael Montague and Danna Jarrard). You Read That Right…We said it! HUSKY (A term popularized by SEARS between 1910-1988 which provided a softer sounding identity description to semi overweight boys/men).

But we digress...


After starting and building a successful Federal Student Loan Education business in 2014, We shared a new idea and passion that would serve many purposes. WAIT! STOP!! I mean we shared a PASSION to help others. Not a passion for each other! We are both married to other people! (Moving on) We grew our first business slow. Learning from mistakes and really placing a focus on our clients and their needs. We live by the philosophy that “If you help enough people get what they want, you’ll eventually get what you want”. Thanks Zig Zigglar! We also live by the philosophy that if we wouldn’t suggest it to our mothers, we wouldn’t suggest it to you.


We wanted to extend our knowledge and experience in the Federal Student Loan category and assist those same people with their unsecured debts as well. We understand exactly how they feel and quite honestly, we’ve felt the same way! What we found is that there isn’t enough debtor education out there to assist borrowers in truly understanding that they do have options. These same people who were seeing challenges in repaying their Federal Student Loans were most likely having trouble in other areas of their finances. And we also knew that the only way out of Federal Student Loans was either to file Bankruptcy (IF the court approves this), disability discharge or to just die. We are for sure not a fan of the death option, so we hope to help in the other ways. Maybe if we just helped them get their finances re-established or redrawn they could see the light at the end of the tunnel. Hence, our mission is to help you take your finances back to Square One!
