Five Minute Impact: Colleen Quill

My interview I did for my internship!

We Deliver Great Music

If you’re managing an artist or you’re an artist doing things on your own, then things can start to stack up quickly. Ever hop onto something like Facebook or Twitter and think, “I do this every day for my own life so why is it so hard to do for my music?” We get it. We totally, totally get it. That is why DashGo is launching Five Minute Impact with experts where together we’ll teach you the best ways to make an impact and grow your fan base in that five minutes you would have spent staring at your screen in panic mode.

Do resolutions count if you start them after New Year’s Day?

I don’t know if these count because I’m making them a week into January. Umm, my New Year’s Goals? Who cares. I was running around like a chicken with its head cut off during my break at home. I find I hold myself more accountable to things the more I write them down. So, here there are for posterity

2017 Resolutions (Goals):

  1. Keep being healthy! Walk, eat right, do yoga, ya know, the whole shebang
  2. Don’t let frustrations block you from working. This goes for school, work, blogs, etc.
  3. Let yourself be creative. Take photos, write, paint, draw, sing, and don’t give two fucks if anyone thinks it’s “good”

I grew up in a small town in southwestern Pennsylvania, so I knew I wanted to get out and experience somewhere bigger, but not quite a city yet. I did my undergrad at George Mason University. I received my B.A. in Communication with a concentration in PR and a sports comm minor. Don’t worry, I’m not fancy, it’s just a lot of words. I also used my undergrad as a springboard into traveling with a two-week course in Kenya and a semester in Australia. After I graduated, I worked for awhile before deciding to apply to grad school. I knew that I wanted to something that could keep me in…

Fake Money is the Best Money

I don’t know why more people haven’t pick up on how many different ways there are to have money without having money. Maybe I picked it up more because I’m a broke college student, but there are so many ways to pay for things without having to have money. I’m not talking like big important things or having to take out loans, but ways to be able to still have fun when you are short on cash. I think a lot of people go for them because it makes you out to be that “annoying” friend. Who cares when you can get stuff for free?! I have gotten free Pura Vida bracelets, free tickets to Bonnaroo, or a free meal just because I was willing to share or retweet something. That just takes a few moments of your time and when you cross that threshold into something that might take about 15 minutes, then you are getting great rewards like actual money. On college campuses, especially, people are looking for people to take surveys or sitting through meetings just to get feedback or some information for their thesis. It usually means ten to twenty dollars in your pocket at the end of the day. It is basically no work for all of these rewards or real money, but no one takes advantage of it. So, the next time a company asks you to share, like, or fill out a survey for them, do it! You’ll never know what the advantages might be!

16 Things Unemotional Women Will Understand

I think we all have those moments where we take a serious look at our surroundings, examine the people in our lives and go ‘what the fuck is wrong with me? Seriously.” Those strange moments where we’re sure we are some sort of alien species barely resembling the other well adjusted humans around us because everything we do suddenly seems off kilter. Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating a bit, but the point is that I think we all feel different and alone at some point in our lives (the reality being that we are neither different nor alone, of course).

Growing up, riddled with the female stereotypes of prior generations, I seriously thought I was emotionally broken. I felt like I was lacking some key sensitivity gland or brain wave because I had a hell of a hard time relating to the other girls/women around me. Contrary to…
