Getting to Know our Doll of the Month!

D.O.L.L.S: During your child hood what was your favorite cartoon character?

Dale: I liked Rogue on X-men.  I think it was the hair.

D.O.L.L.S: What would be your dream car and why?

Dale: I would like a Black BMW X-5 or X-3 with white interior.  Not too fancy but it’s comfortable and sleek.

D.O.L.L.S: How would you describe yourself in three words?

Dale: Reserved, Silly, Determined.

D.O.L.L.S: If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would it be and who would it be with?

Dale: I would love to go to Australia with my sisters, Lea and Alaina.

Looking Towards the Future with our Doll of the Month 

D.O.L.L.S: What dream are you currently pursuing?

Dale: Currently, I am building a record label called Royaltie Entertainment Company.  I’ve had this dream since I was a little girl. 

       D.O.L.L.S: What are the first steps you took to follow your dreams?
       Dale: The first step I took was to find an artist I believed in and worked well with.  From there we developed a marketing and production plan for her and I developed a business plan for my company.  Because there was no program at the University of South Carolina (my alma mater) specifically, I’ve had to do a lot of research.  But it’s worth it for my dreams.
       D.O.L.L.S: What are some roadblocks that you have come across?

       Dale: Having enough time, energy, and money to accomplish everything needed to propel my company forward has been a challenge.  I believe we are making lots of headway now though because I haven’t given up.  God always makes a way. 
       I also have had problems with a lot of doubters, especially because I am a female behind the scenes.  When I am with my artist, Kashayla, at a gig everyone assumes I am just a friend.  No one expects us to be working together, or they assume I’m not serious about it; that I’m just working with her to become an artist myself.

       D.O.L.L.S: Who are some individuals in your field you admire and would like to work with in the future?

       Dale: My biggest inspiration is Russell Simmons.  I want REC to follow a similar path as Def Jam.  I would love for him to become a mentor for me.  I’m also a poet/songwriter.  It would be incredible if Dianne Warren took me under her wing. 

       D.O.L.L.S: Is there anything that you’d like our readers to learn from you?

       Dale: Yes.  If you have a dream, it is possible.  My entire life people told me not to attempt a career in the music industry because I was a female.  Apparently, it’s too hard for us to handle the business aspect of music. All the experiences I’ve had in my life have taught me to ignore people’s doubts and do what I truly believe in. 

       D.O.L.L.S: What advice do you have for young men your age?

       Dale: Stop assuming all women are the same.  There are good men who treat women with respect, but it seems the definitions of respect, chivalry, and romance have all been changed by women with low standards.  A lot of men my age are confused because a lot of women accept the bare minimum.  Treat women how you would want your mother or sister treated, regardless of what a particular woman will accept.

       D.O.L.L.S: At this point in your life, what makes you happiest?
       Dale: Spending time in the country with my family and eating my mother’s food.  I am also extremely   happy when Kashayla finishes a song that’s clearly a hit.  It’s nothing like being a part of making quality  music.

       D.O.L.L.S: What motto do you live by?

       Dale: Love yourself for yourself because you can’t depend on other people to make you happy.

       D.O.L.L.S: How do you stay motivated to accomplish your goals?

       Dale: I think about my family and how disappointed they would be in me if I gave up.  Marine and failure don’t match.  (Corny I know)

       D.O.L.L.S: What can we look forward to from you in the future? 
       Dale: Stay tuned into www.reverbnation.com/Kashayla for new music and performances from Royaltie Entertainment artist Kashayla.  We’re going to put in a lot of work for the rest of 2011 and 2012.  I’m still writing poetry, and I hope to have a book done next year as well.   My poetry can be found at http://royaltieentertainmentpoetry.tumblr.com
