He moved back to Houston at the age of 15 because he felt that Houston had a better school system. When he moved back to Houston he attended Jack Yates High School and was offered an opportunity to finish high school one year
early. Karl graduated in the top 5% of his class and then went on to attend Dillard University in New Orleans.Karl wanted to travel and also help his country at the same time so he joined the United States Armed Forces. As a 19D, cavalry scout, in the army he was able to travel to Korea as well as parts of the United States. The army taught him many life lessons like how to deal with loss, how to follow, as well as how to lead. Mr. Simmons is no stranger to hard work. Once leaving the army he entered into the job market and quickly realized that in order to find work it was important to have a college degree, and so he decided to continue his education
at Texas Southern University.
Realizing that having a good job wouldn’t be enough to build generational wealth he looked towards investing and investments. It was at that point he discovered his passion for the stock market. While learning how the stock market worked, he lost money initially. The stock market doesn’t care about your educational background, color, or even how much money you have. It’s an even playing field. Once he came up with a strategy to attack the market he has since had lots of success.
