Interview with Daniel Lin (@daniellinceo)

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

I started working in the music business as an event promoter. Promoting music festivals across the nation while starting my first company at the age of 19. While juggling school work and my company, I was able to festivals for free and network with people in the music industry. All of the networking eventually led me to develop my own record label and media company. 

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

Working in the music industry allowed me to meet some of my idols such as Martin Garrix, Alan Walker, Yellow Claw, and many more artists.

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

Constantly treat yourself. Sleep and eating well is crucial. Take walking breaks or meditate. Don’t do the same thing twice, do it right the first time.

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 family, teachers, and mentors.

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

Always giving back to the community through charitable donations and volunteering as much as possible. I love to support any cause with a positive impact.

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

“Make goals that will shoot for the stars, so that even if you land on the moon, you’re still miles ahead of the game.” I’ve worked so hard on my companies since I was 18 years old with barely any money in my bank account. However, without giving up at any cost, I was able to discover what I truly love to do while still making a living. If you try and fail constantly, you have a greater chance of winning eventually.
