Pop Quiz, Monday with Connie Chi

Connie Chi

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.

The courage that they demonstrate to think outside of the box is a huge inspiration for me.

How do you have fun at work (team building, pranks, etc..)?
We always leave the door open for everyone to make suggestions on things to do. As an agency that prides itself on creativity that also needs to be translated to our team.

What are some of the challenges of your job?
When it comes to building creative experiences for our clients, you have to be flexible enough to make real-time changes which can be challenging when because you never know what to expect.

The biggest lesson, when you create for customers what you envision as the outcome sometimes isn’t always the case. You need to be able to take the feedback and make changes.

What advice would you give to someone who is starting out in your industry?
I would say definitely have the courage to think differently and create differently. There’s no right or wrong answer, but you need to be strategic in how you create/execute your ideas.
