Dottie Mattison is the CEO of Gracious Home New York, a furnishings company, and she’s not someone who likes to grill job candidates in an interview. Instead, she likes to build rapport with them by asking fun questions. The more comfortable an applicant is, the better she can see what kind of person they really are.
One of these questions is “If you won the lottery, what business would you open?
Speaking with The New York Times, Matthison explains:
“Sometimes that turns out to be a product category they know a lot about, or a certain customer they understand really well”.
Many of us have great ideas for a product or business but are held back by lack of funding. By removing the money barrier, Mattison hopes to encourage creative thinking that is not constrained by reality.
