Today we’d like to introduce you to Dahlia Dillon.
Dahlia, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
My passion for music started in high school living in Atlanta and just seeing the music scene I knew I wanted to work in the music industry. After high school I attended Clark Atlanta University during that time I was an intern at Think It’s A Game Records and worked as an intern for Ms. Erica Bowen. I interned at a couple of more places and then realized I really had a passion for the music industry but couldn’t figure out what it is I wanted to do. I then took some time to figure that out and realized I loved marketing. I now do social media marketing and management for The Progress Report media group.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
No, it was definitely not a smooth road, wanting to be fully committed to your internship but having to work and go to school it became hard. The challenge was figuring out how to balance it all, but in the end it worked out once I graduated from college I had a lot more time to dedicate myself to the industry and it’s been going good thus far. Quarantine also helped in some ways because I was really able to sit down and have time to do the things that I love.
We’d love to hear more about your work.
I love social media marketing, so right now l work with different artists and brands on their social media platforms, managing their pages, and helping them create content.The best part for me is seeing the growth. Watching the different brands and artists that I work with grow their audience, and it’s also a good feeling to know that you were a part of that process.
Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
I feel like patience is an important trait to have. Success doesn’t happen overnight especially when you’re doing something you’re truly passionate about and I had to learn that as well. Everything takes time but if you are consistent and work hard at anything you do God will bless you and you’ll be successful.
