Media Kit - Karl Hughes


After a decade leading software engineering teams at venture-funded startups, Karl started down the path of agency entrepreneurship. He founded a niche content service, in 2020, and within two years, the company reached $2.5 million in annual revenue.

After removing himself from the day-to-day, Karl partnered with long-time friend, Manuel Weiss to purchase an audio/video production company, The Podcast Consultant (read more about the acquisition here). They’re currently focused on growing that business and helping more agency owners sell their businesses.

In his free time, Karl likes to write about his journey buying and scaling digital service businesses, run, play retro handheld games, and spend time with his family in downtown Chicago.
