Check Out Dylan Sim’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dylan Sim.  

Hi Dylan, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
I’m 2019, college students everywhere were sent him because of the coronavirus, and for a temporary time, there were no classes. I did not know what to do with myself with all this time, so I decided to start my first podcast. I have always been a huge sports fan, and I wanted to find people who would want to listen to my insights and talk about sports with me. So, I started a sports podcast called Next on Deck, where I talked about baseball, football, and basketball. I got my friends to come and talk on the show, but I found that most of my friends only knew about football, and that is the sport I enjoyed talking about the most, so we shifted from covering those three sports to just football. Every episode, we try and challenge ourselves to make our show better every week by introducing new games and new topics to make our show more entertaining. 

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
It hasn’t always been easy to stay focused on the podcast. Especially with school, it can be tough to put my full effort into school and the podcast. We believe that we provide quality content, and it can be frustrating sometimes when we do not get the results that we want. 

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I am currently going into my senior year at grove city college, majoring in business and sports management. I am most proud of my ability to keep my podcast going while in school and still have the work/life balance that people struggle with. I believe that my emotional intelligence sets me apart from others because when some people feel lost or misunderstood, I feel like I get where they are coming from and try to look at things from their perspective. 

Before we let you go, we’ve got to ask if you have any advice for those who are just starting out?
Keep with it! It is tough when you start producing content to keep your spirits up, especially when most people consider it a pipe dream. It takes time to make good, quality content, and I am still trying to get better but with time, it will. There is a lot of trial and error and not every idea is going to work, but you never know till you try.
