Who is Karl Monson?
I’m a 27 year old entrepreneur chasing my dreams and turning them into realities. I run a successful tech company and have a handful of side ventures to keep things interesting.
My background consists of just about everything that an entrepreneur can do, including network marketing, affiliate marketing, amazon, ebay, and so many other shiny objects.
Ever since I was a kid, I’ve wanted to own my own businesses, and for a long time I thought there was going to be some sort of magic threshold that I would cross that would let me know when I had made it. Now I’m discovering that there is no magic threshold, and being an entrepreneur isn’t all glamorous.
While many people would consider me successful, I still consider myself as “not having made it yet” because I believe that “making it” leads to complacency. For years my ultimate goal was to have enough money that I could retire to a tropical beach somewhere and not have a care in the world. Can you relate?
The hustle of being an entrepreneur is now engrained in me. There are days where I do nothing, and they totally suck. That feeling of going nowhere really starts to get under your skin if you don’t give in to your craving for productivity.
Who knows, maybe you aren’t like me and you long for days where you can do absolutely nothing, but what does that accomplish?
You aren’t going to get rich quick. If you do, it won’t last.
The hustle is real. Every. Day.
