My name is Karl and I run MonetizePros.com. I started my first blog almost 7 years ago and the journey has been life-changing for me in dozens of ways. I’ve made tens of thousands of dollars, lived in many tropical countries (currently Thailand), met hundreds of amazing entrepreneurs and much more.
When I first got started it was simply for fun and some side income. I never expected it to turn into such a high-paying career. But, I’m not special – I’m just like you, an average guy.
Now my goal is to help other people who are in the same position I was, start their own blogs. Follow this step-by-step tutorial and I’ll show you exactly how to create a blog that’ll make you money for years to come and change your life. It’s simple.

Over the last decade Social Media has emerged as a platform for people to connect on the internet. It is essentially the current state of the Internet. Businesses have started to realize this over the recent years and started to build their presence on all the relevant Social Networks.
Social Media benefits your business in a lot of ways, like providing an easy way to communicate with your customers, understand customer insights, delivering exceptional customer experience and scaling your outreach/marketing efforts.
But in this bustle of know-hows, there are only a handful of businesses that are able to execute their strategies and grow their business through Social Media. But why do majority of the businesses fail to do that?

When it comes to massive business growth, it’s not just the digital marketers with wildly popular blogs you want to be learning from. It’s the successful entrepreneurs themselves—people who have built real businesses from the ground, up.
Every successful entrepreneur will tell you that exponential growth is hard. It’s a product of more than just a few great hires or a viral marketing campaign. Business growth that happens at lightning speed is more often than not a result of a movement. Something about the business has to trigger such a strong emotional response in consumers, they can’t help but tell everyone they know about it.

Laurence McCahill is the co-founder of The Happy Startup School, the uncommon startup school that helps people bring their ideas to life. He spends his time helping people question their passions, their reasons for doing things, and even themselves and their abilities. He is damn good at asking damn good questions. Questions that make you think, and perhaps even consider, why your answer is what it is.
McCahill framed 10 questions most entrepreneurs are too afraid to ask themselves.
Why am I actually doing this?
Entrepreneurship isn’t easy. There are undoubtedly easier ways to earn a living. But, if like Laurence, you’re a terrible employee and would rather inject your eyeballs with vodka than work for someone else, then you don’t have too many other options. Before taking your first step, really consider why you want to be your own boss. What’s driving this big idea? Whose needs will it serve? By taking time to reflect on, and define the purpose behind your idea, you’ll not only attract the right customers but you’ll also get more clarity as to what you should be working on. It will help you to know what’s in and what’s out.

Life is busy. It can feel impossible to move toward your dreams. If you have a full-time job and kids, it’s even harder.
How do you move forward?
If you don’t purposefully carve time out every day to progress and improve — without question, your time will get lost in the vacuum of our increasingly crowded lives. Before you know it, you’ll be old and withered — wondering where all that time went.
As play-write, Meredith Willson, said — “You pile up enough tomorrows, and you’ll find you are left with nothing but a lot of empty yesterdays.”
The famed artist, Pablo Picasso, said something strikingly similar: “Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone.”
