  • Saguaro National Park and the Sonoran Desert

    Nestled within southern Arizona in Prima County lies the beautiful and majestic Saguaro National Park and the Sonoran Desert. Consisting of two parts, the Tucson Mountain District and Rincon Mountain District, the park was unified in 1994 and lies 10 miles to the west and 10 miles to the east of Tucson respectively.

    The nearly 92,000 acre national park offers stunning Sonoran Desert landscapes, flora, fauna, wildlife, but most notably the saguaro cactus. 
    The national park was named after these giant cacti that call the area home. The breathtaking saguaro cacti are found nowhere else in the world and are the focus of many of Matt's shirt designs here at MNKR. The Lone Saguaro, Saguaro National Park, Explore the Desert, and Get Lost lines were all inspired by his days spent in the park amongst the cacti. Not only has the national park inspired his designs, but also his tattoos, lifestyle, and appreciation of nature as a whole.

    It is said that the Native Americans that populated the area believed the cacti to be souls of their ancestors. When Matt witnessed the sunset over the national park, it became more than just a day in the desert; it truly became an experience that left a mark.

      Overcoming that requires taking some distance with the idea and applying intellectual honesty. My advice is to talk to potential customers or users from day 1 and for every day after that: never stop collecting feedback. We’re now 25 people on the team at Scoop.it, but I still answer support tickets and take sales calls because there’s nothing as real and valuable than a direct conversation with a customer."
      Thinking that ideas are more important than teams. I hear a lot of first-time entrepreneurs tell me ‘I have a great idea for an app; I just need to find a technical co-founder to code it.’ But successful startups iterate their original idea constantly based on market feedback. Sometimes they even radically pivot like Paypal or Slack. Only great teams can do that, so the execution is much more important than the original concept. And it’s easier to change the idea than it is to change the team."

      In 15 years as an entrepreneur, I’ve made many mistakes and I’ve seen a lot of entrepreneurs do them too. My answer is two-part since these are equally as important."
      Falling blindly in love with an idea. Entrepreneurship needs passion, but love can be blinding. Many entrepreneurs believe in their idea so much that they fail to validate it. They tend to dismiss negative feedback on their products or neglect collecting some. And they end up missing product/market fit.

      Stay balanced. As an entrepreneur, you need to be constantly processing new information, adjusting your plan, and making decisions."
      If you are exhausted and 100% monopolized by work, you won’t have the perspective and insight that you need to guide your venture in the right direction. Sleeping, exercising, and having a life outside of work is critical for your endurance as a human information processor and decision maker."

      I have to go with: inaction. New entrepreneurs tend to overthink things that don’t really matter (logo, copy, etc.), but instead of validating their idea, they get lost in the weeds."
      The advice is simple – just do it. Do a minimum version, talk to some friends, and see if they would be interested in it. If so, make a quick version, and go from there."
