The Pop Quiz, Monday is a fun little exam that we love to give to savvy business owners. The examination is not a surprise after all since the interviewee already knew about the questions in advance. However, we can always pretend and have fun with the scenario of a young entrepreneur sitting in class nervously biting on their pencil. They are ready to take a pop quiz on a chapter that they were supposed to read the night before. Instead, they played Metroid all night on their SNES (Oops, this was me in high school). The real purpose of the pop quiz is that this is a fun way to introduce business tips from real-world experiences that you can not learn in a classroom. We want to thank our entrepreneur for being a good sport and volunteering their time to answer a few questions to help our community grow from their knowledge.
I want to introduce you to our guest today who will be taking our Pop Quiz Monday.
- Can you please tell everyone your name?
My name is Casey Stubbs
2. Tell us about your business and what you do?
My business is generating leads and traffic in the financial industry. I use various channels, google search, facebook, twitter, youtube. I then deliver that traffic to clients so they can promote their products.
3. Why did you want to become an entrepreneur?
I wanted to be in business for many reasons. First I always believed that I would and that I would be great at it. I also like the challenge of being your own boss and also raising up a team to do great things in business. As well as using my business as a platform to help others.
4. What are the challenging aspects of running a business?
The biggest challenges are the unexpected difficulties. Such as when sales stop, and you don’t know why and then you have to pay all of your employees even though revenue is dropping and you might not have enough to pay yourself.
I think the reason most businesses fail is that they don’t correctly account for the risk that is involved. In starting a business.
5. What do you love most about your job?
Getting to do something new every day and the fact there is always growth potential. I also enjoy spending time with my team and meeting people all over the world with whom I do business with.
6. How do you have fun at work (team building, pranks, etc..)?
I wish I were more fun! My best times are having coffee and just getting to know each other on a deeper level.
7. What would one piece of advice that you give to a new business owner?
The biggest advice I would have is calculating the risks you are taking and try not to get caught up in comparing yourself to others, you can only be you, not anyone else. So just do the best job you can and show up to work and keep at it, even when tough times come, if you preserve enough you will get the success.
