Today we’d like to introduce you to Eddie Rios. Them and their team share their story with us below:
DLE Vision was born out of a passion for tech, storytelling, and helping people make their visions become a reality. Founder and owner Eddie Rios has always been a tech fanatic. As a kid, Eddie loved piecing apart technology and very much enjoyed piecing it back together. Eddie always became the “Guru” of anything he got himself into and eventually was recruited by one of the most recognized brands in the US, AT&T. Eddie was able to enjoy working with technology while simultaneously providing solutions to customers.
His love for tech and passion for sales & business also allowed him to explore the automobile field. Eddie became a team member of Mercedes-Benz as a sales representative (Arlington, VA location), where he would also aid with the social media and content creation for the dealership location. Eddie was learning the art of filming and cinematography through online courses when he was given the opportunity to help and take part in a TV commercial for Mercedes-Benz. This experience allowed him to feel inspired by the entire production and creation process. Soon, Eddie began filming internal private events for Mercedes-Benz until he was solicited by a local artist to film a music video production.
As a music artist himself, Eddie found an even deeper passion for filming within the entertainment industry, especially within the music industry. Less than a month later, after the release of his first music video production, Eddie was booked for various more music video projects and artistic projects. With a booked calendar, minimal filming equipment, a heart filled with passion, and a VISION, Eddie made the decision to take risks and pursue his dream. Eddie quit his stable job filled with great consistent pay and benefits, founded DLE Vision LLC, and never looked back.
With an entrepreneurial mindset, vast knowledge on filming and editing, ten years of customer relation experiences, and a certification from the mega-popular investor Tai Lopez on Social Media Marketing, Eddie, as the owner of DLE Visions LLC, now helps businesses, entrepreneurs, and music artists push their brand and fulfill their vision not only in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area but as of June 2021 also in the Orlando, Florida area.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Taking the risk of leaving my stable job that I actually loved at Mercedes-Benz was a rocky road on its own. There were a lot of times where I doubted taking the leap because “what is it’s not the right time?” I would ask myself. Until I realized I had to be decisive and just go for it.
At the time that I decided to start DLE Vision, I was a single father. I was dedicating a lot of time to both the business and my children and they definitely were my motor to keep going, but finding the time to connect with other businesses and potential clients was very difficult.
Though I faced many obstacles, DLE Vision was thriving. The DMV community were loving our services and final product so much, the word spread and without realizing it, I was traveling further out to New York and New Jersey to film for music artists and businesses. And then COVID-19 happened. We had to cancel all of our booked projects, and the longer we were in lockdown, the harder things got. Finally realizing we did not know when we would be able to “go back to normal” I took the downtime as an opportunity to work further into my business and continue to educate myself. I challenged myself to create 100 videos before the end of 2020, whether they were paid or unpaid. I proudly created 96, and although I came short by 4, I was still proud of the value those 96 videos brought into the lives of people.
Today we face a challenge that we are grateful for. I moved the business from the DMV area to Orlando, Florida in June of 2021. We are putting in a lot of work to increase awareness of DLE Vision and I know it won’t be easy to grow the support we have in the DMV area and that is okay with me. If it’s not easy that means it’s worth it! I am so eager and I have the most motivation and energy I have ever had as a business owner. To be able to be of value to the Orlando community makes me feel extremely grateful. To be able to make this kind of move while still living through a pandemic and still experience people believing in DLE Vision and supporting us has been a blessing.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
