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?
Founder and CEO
Tell us about your company?
I run multiple projects, all aimed at helping people make a bigger impact in health & wellness. I run the Health Bloggers Community, Whole Influence (network of startups and content marketing agency) and co-run the Register of Health & Wellness Influencers. Yes, I do like to keep busy!
What do you love most about your job?
I love the fact that no two days are the same – cheesy, but true. I love to challenge myself and be creative at my own terms. I also love being able to create incredible products and see how they grow organically through time.
What motivates you to get up everyday and go to work?
The people I am helping. They can be very vocal, but they are the best bunch I know. Seriously, I could not ask for a better bunch of communities to surround myself with.
How do your co-workers inspire you?
My team is small but mighty, but we are incredibly motivated. We all work really hard, and we complement one another really well. We are like a small, tight and supportive family. We all have side passions and projects, which keeps us motivated at work!
How do you have fun at work (team building, pranks, etc..)?
Loads of team building activities and events, we get a lot of invites, and we make sure we take up fun activities and do them as a team – we also all love food so we talk about food – a lot.
What are some of the challenges of your job?
Switching off and boundaries for sure. It’s hard to say no sometimes, especially when working with a whole host of different clients on different projects. Still, it is great fun!
What are some lessons learned from a past project that you can share with us?
Get laser-focused clear about what you love to do, and not just what you are good at doing. You may be good at a lot of things, but you should mainly do and focus on what you love doing, or you’ll take up things you’ll regret saying yes to!
What advice would you give to some one who is starting out in your industry?
Competition is fiercer, and your story is your greatest asset. Go and get them, tiger!
