Beverly Hills, CA – Amari Fields was recently interviewed for insights to help the young generation figuring out career options or those planning on being social media influencers themselves. He has recently published the #1 selling book titled ‘How To Grow A Successful YouTube Channel’. The Interview revolves around How Amari Fields started his journey as an influencer and his story. The links to his YouTube channel and Instagram accounts are provided below.

QUESTION: People refer to you as being successful and a success story. What does that mean to you? What is your perception of “success”?

ANSWER: To be very honest, I do not consider myself to be successful yet. Success for me will be at the time when I can give back to my parents and family who supported me and always stood by my side to help me advance my career to the next level. On a personal level, motivation and dedication are what got me where I am today. I work very hard and take an interest in trying new things. The fact that people refer to me as being successful and a success story is truly an honor, but I feel a spark inside me that says I can become bigger. My YouTube channel should grow bigger, my fan base should grow bigger, and to achieve that I will continue putting in efforts and the hard work I have been putting in every day till today. I always told myself one thing, consider it a goal for me, ‘I want to be rich and successful at a very young age’ this is what I think about every day and work towards achieving it.

QUESTION: What about values and principles? What can you say about these?

ANSWER: Most young people do not have an answer to this. Asking people of my age about values and principles or to define their purpose often leads to silence or they begin thinking about it. The same is for me. The only thing that held me together is my vision, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my life and how I wanted to do it. My constant thought process was that I never wanted to work for anyone, I wanted to be self-made. I am striving towards being self-made to this day. Like I said earlier, to become rich and successful at an extremely early age is a huge goal of mine!

QUESTION: You keep mentioning goals a lot. So what are some of the things you have accomplished within your career so far?

ANSWER: One thing I consider as an accomplishment is my YouTube channel. I went through several ups and downs with my channel but never gave up and now I am at a point at which I can be proud of. Without any doubt, I am content with what I have achieved but this is only a start. I am extremely proud of what I have built so far, with my main channel having over 80,000 subscribers and the second channel at 20,000 subscribers. Another thing that I have accomplished in life is being an author. I always thought that it was cool to be an author, to inspire and motivate someone through a book is the coolest thing ever. The thought of becoming an author occurred to me when I was in school in the 7th grade. Since then I always wanted to be an author until a few weeks ago, when I launched my first book titled “How To Grow A Successful YouTube Channel”. In the book, I broke down all the secret tips and tricks to growing on YouTube. This book is currently being sold on Amazon and within the first 72 hours of the book being out, I was marked as a #1 Best Selling author for my book. This is something I am extremely proud of because I always dreamed of doing something like this, and for me to actually accomplish this goal is the best feeling in the world. The last thing to mention as an accomplishment but not the least is that I also run my own Drop shipping business. The store sells winning products and so far the store is going great. Honestly, I would say that being a true entrepreneur and learning as much as possible is my greatest accomplishment!

QUESTION: Many young people look up to you and everything you have done so far. What are some things that you would recommend to younger people that wish to walk in your footsteps? 

ANSWER: Frankly speaking, the best advice I can offer is, ‘If you want to do something in life, then simply do it’. It doesn’t matter how young you are, if you have a vision, just go for it, believe in yourself! I always recommend that if you set your mind to something you want, with hard work and dedication you can achieve it. I have had plenty of obstacles within my career, but I am happy about one thing that I did not let those obstacles stop me.

QUESTION: Since you brought it up, what are some of the obstacles you had to overcome within your career?

ANSWER: I have had a ton of obstacles within my career. However, the biggest and toughest obstacles to overcome were my parents. Back in 2016 when I just started with YouTube, I used to sit in my room all day. My parents used to think that I was sitting there playing video games. Little did they know that I was recording, editing, uploading, and working hard on so many things to start up my YouTube career. Moreover, there were several times when I explained to them what I was doing but they just didn’t seem to fully understand. All they would do was get mad at me and be annoyed at me for staying in my room all the time. They would get so mad that they would constantly nag about me sitting in my room playing video games to family members and their close friends. This embarrassed me. My parents would even take away my electronics for days-weeks-even months and would compare me to their friends’ children saying “They’re getting jobs and working hard, and here you are stuck in a room”. I even remember those days when my parents use to say “At this rate, you’re going to be a bum” because they didn’t fully understand what I was doing. Despite all this, I used to bottle up my anger and continue striving for my goals, hoping that I achieve my goals soon so that I can show my parents that I was not wasting time. Little did they know that YouTube could make money and can be a career path, which could lead to even better opportunities.

QUESTION: Wow, that was an amazing story! Thank you for sharing. Where do you see yourself within the next five years?

ANSWER: In the next five years, the first and foremost place I see myself in is as a rich and successful individual. I always tell my parents that I will be a millionaire by 21, and I am firm on keeping my word on that. I also see my YouTube channel having around 6 million subscribers by then based on the current average of 500,000+ views per video. I also aim on owning other businesses, continue investing in stocks, and even write a few more books to help my younger audience out!

QUESTION: It seems you have an extremely bright future ahead of you! What are some unique experiences or opportunities that have opened up for you as an influencer?

ANSWER: Being an Influencer, the most common opportunities would be brand deals and sponsorship ships. So far I have had the chance to work with a few companies including GFUEL, KontrolFreek, SeatGeek, etc. and even have some major clothing brand deals coming out soon. Besides, I have also had the chance to befriend a lot of great-doing YouTubers and have even done a few collabs on my channel. These would be some experiences or opportunities that I was blessed with in my career till now. 

QUESTION: What are some of the negative aspects of being an Influencer?

ANSWER: Honestly, I don’t have a lot of negatives but there are a few. I would say that the biggest negative is that people start being jealous of you. While I was in school, there have been several instances where people would hate me for having a little bit of a fan base, but what I don’t think they realize is that I worked very hard to get where I am today. On top of that, you always have people that ask you for shoutouts trying to get free handouts, but on a personal level, I do not believe in this. Because I never got a free hand out my entire career so I believe you have to work your butt off to get to a successful point just like everyone else. Lastly, another negative I would mention is fake friends. When people find out that you have some clout they try to talk to you and be your friend out of nowhere. It’s like at this point you never know who is genuine.

QUESTION: What are some assumptions people have about you when you introduce yourself as an influencer?

ANSWER: People assume that being an influencer is a job and not much work is required to be done. Little do they know being an influencer requires a ton of work. Being active on social media and YouTube, keeping the audience engaged, delivering interesting and new content on a regular basis are some of the things that we influencers constantly need to focus on. Honestly, if you were to ask me, I would say that it’s one of the hardest jobs.
