Pop Quiz, Monday with John Vitti

John Vitti

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?

John Vitti

Tell us about your business and what you do?

MrktStar is a prediction game where people get paid for
being right. Did you think Airbnb was going to be big? Did you get paid for that prediction? Probably not…but now people are winning thousands of dollars a week on Mrktstar.

Why did you want to become an entrepreneur?

I have too many ideas in my head and I love to create. Most people don’t think starting a business is creative…but it’s all creative.

What are the challenging aspects of running a business?

The loneliness of feeling it all rests on you and your team’s shoulders. You have to be very disciplined on making tough choices all day.

What do you love most about your job?

Problem solving. I love puzzles…starting a company is like stepping into a 3 dimensional puzzle every day.

How do you have fun at work (team building, pranks, etc..)?

Always telling jokes and eating food 🙂 we like food.

What would one piece of advice that you give to a new business owner?

Look at what people are already doing naturally or what people would love to do and create an awesome experience around that.

Thank you for taking our pop quiz today. You get an A+ for effort. You can learn more about our interviewee and their business by visiting them on the web:
