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?
Tell us about your company?
BlockchainBTM is a Bitcoin/LiteCoin ATM operator. We operate a network of these machines in California, Nevada, Texas – and soon, Illinois! We are a group of blockchain enthusiasts who believe access to crypto should be simple.
What do you love most about your job?
Working with really smart professionals in this space, and learning from them.
What motivates you to get up every day and go to work?
We are a start-up, so our working days are not “normal” – but I’m motivated by our mission, and by the new projects we’re taking on this year (keep up-to-date with us on Twitter)…
How do your co-workers inspire you?
We are a very random group with varying backgrounds (just see our team page). Their work-ethic inspires me, and their passion for space and to make this company grow inspires me.
How do you have fun at work (team building, pranks, etc..)?
The guys are always teasing each other, and us girls just roll our eyes. We’re always laughing.
What are some of the challenges of your job?
I am not a technical person, nor is this my only job, so staying on top of all the latest happenings in this new industry is a challenge.
What are some lessons learned from a past project that you can share with us?
Keep it simple. Our President is always telling us to keep it simple – focus on our goals, and do the tasks that will get us there. Running a start-up business is inherently challenging, so it’s essential to not complicate anything along the way.
What advice would you give to someone who is starting in your industry?
Surround yourself with people who are in this industry for the right reasons.
