Interview with Carlos Dasilva (@carlos.dasilva_)

Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path? 

I kind of just fell into it, a good friend of mine ended up working for one of the biggest PPC agencies in the US. Told me about how great the company was and that I should meet one of the managers in their London office. I was convinced to join and loved everything about digital and I loved the fact that we were directly helping business grow.

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this? 

I have traveled a lot. Thanks to Google because we have built a technology platform that enhances their Adwords product, they have sent me all over the world to over 20 countries to speak to there staff about our algorithms and tracking software. 

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”? 

I think if you really love what you do, you won’t burn out. So my advice is if you are feeling burnt out have a good think about what you are doing every day and is it really making you happy?

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story? 

My dad, what he thought me was that without hard work you have nothing. It’s great to dream but without an action plan, it will be very difficult to get there. 

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world? 

I try to give back every year, we do a lot of work with children’s wards in a lot of the local hospitals. We try to bring joy by donating brand new toys to children who are in the hospital during Christmas time.

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? 

I’ve failed over and over again in my life. That’s why I succeed. 

I truly believe the secret to success is Resilience and this quote hits the nail right on the head.
