The Pop Quiz, Monday is a fun little exam that we love to give to savvy business people. 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 cannot learn in a classroom. We want to thank our interviewee 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?

Amanda Whitcroft

Tell us about your company?

I own Panda Pr and Marketing. We represent various industries helping to secure exposure and organic growth.

What do you love most about your job?

The freedom of creating my schedule and expectations.

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

Every time we get a new client, because of the company name, I will blast the song Panda by Desiigner and do a little victory dance for myself.

What are some of the challenges of your job?

Wearing different hats. As anyone knows having worked at a business or even owning it, it’s just a title, and I know that I juggle many different roles to keep clients happy.

What advice would you give to someone who is starting out in your industry?

To be careful whose advice you buy. Everyone has their own method, and although it’s business, it is so personal at the same time.
