We had the good fortune of connecting with Anita Tillero and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Anita, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
The most important factor behind the success of “Anita Tillero” has been the support of the successful people who surround me every day, experts in the area of the music industry and that is never enough for me, I always seek to improve myself, criticize myself and nurture myself from the examples of the success of colleagues I admire.
Please tell us more about your work. We’d love to hear what sets you apart from others, what you are most proud of or excited about. How did you get to where you are today professionally. Was it easy? If not, how did you overcome the challenges? What are the lessons you’ve learned along the way. What do you want the world to know about you or your brand and story?
What sets me apart from others is my personality.
I can be an ambitious and very anxious person but humble grateful and noble, unable to trample others to get to the top.
It makes me proud to see how my colleagues admire my work and respect me because for me there is no better demonstration of gratitude from others towards me than admiration and respect.
I got to where I am today because I never stopped chasing my dreams and I didn’t let bad times and failures discourage me from lowering the level of my creative development in each of the projects I work on, on the contrary, I learned from them. and I was improving in every detail.
It has never been easy for a woman in the music industry to get to where I am today. It is an industry dominated 70% by men and appearing among them on our own merits is not an easy job.
Along the way I’ve learned that the path to success in this creative area of the music industry is to not take anything personally.
I would love for the world to know that for women there are no unbreakable barriers in any work area, you just have to know how to fight with confidence and learn something new every day to stand out from those who still want to do things the old school way.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would take them to the beach, to Lincoln road, to eat ramen in wynwood, to walk around the design district and to my house because that is where they will eat better because I love to cook.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
In my trajectory there have been certain mentors who have made me a successful professional both in the creative and corporate spheres, starting with Walter Kolm who has believed in me from day one, Horacio Rodriguez who supports me and pushes me to be better every day and brighter giving me the confidence and the tools, Jorge Pino who was my first boss in this industry and I will never forget how he taught me to insist and not give up on anything, Isabel Paz and Pierina Jatem who teach me every day to be more corporate and more leader because they see a potential in me that sometimes I don’t see and many other people who are always by my side betting on me and holding my hand to help me shine.
