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?
What is your job role?
Managing director but deep down it’s leading
Tell us about your company?
My company allows companies to outsource their marketing budget to build a customer base
What do you love most about your job?
Watching new candidates develop as a person and break comfort zones they initially didn’t have the confidence to break
What motivates you to get up every day and go to work?
My goals and vision. I set goals that make me responsible for others to hit rewards and life achievements. as humans, it’s easy to give up on ourselves, but when it’s for someone else we find more gears to move into
How do your co-workers inspire you?
We share goals and accountability. once we swim together, it doesn’t matter if it’s with or against the current
How do you have fun at work (team building, pranks, etc..)?
Not being stuck to the same routine. Being confident enough to veer away from the plan or schedule. I read the room and environment every morning; I’ve often just grabbed everyone out of the building and done something spontaneous
What are some of the challenges of your job?
Educating people and helping them understand life and success isn’t about stereotypical systems college … age etc… the system fails our generation and embedded structures and stereotypical expectations kills the majority of our people’s ambition
What are some lessons learned from a past project that you can share with us?
Body language is more powerful than words you say. I can elaborate more if needed
What advice would you give to someone who is starting in your industry?
Accept that no business will tell you to do something that is going to hinder their company and profits. so what I mean by that is be open-minded and be coachable
