Interview with Young Sorealist


Interview with Young Sorealist

Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path? 

I had three goals in life: I wanted my work to be seen and noticed. I wanted to be the main person in the family soirilus so I created Young Sorealist . I wanted to make my parents proud.

Two weeks after graduating, I got my first entertainer job at Walt Disney. I had a great boss. Her name is Emily and found that I love the music business. After 5 years of working in entertainment, I saw a golden moment to start my own brand. I realized there is a need for a star in my family, therefore I created a young Sorealist. Fast-forward to 2022, now I have my own music manager, Giordany Louis, and have a good size of followers on Instagram and I’m currently growing.

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this? 

Achieving success might sound simple with the lens of hindsight, but it took two years to establish momentum for my dream. I originally started young Jay then later change my name to young Sorealist. At the same time, I also managed to learn how to do all types of genres of music. All you have to do is give me the beat and I got it, from all of that a lot of artists have a whole lot of respect for me because they know what I am capable of. Once I noticed I had a big crowd following me that’s when I know how to keep pushing forward, I hit the ground running with newfound enthusiasm. I spoke to hundreds of people at conferences and events that’s when I knew exactly that I was a superstar.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”? 

I have Three tips: mindset, exercise, and disconnection. Mindset is critical as it helps frame all circumstances. Bad situations become tolerable with context. Great situations become launching boards with context. Exercising is key for me because it provides a way to raise endorphins in the morning and burn off some of the stress. Finally, I try to disconnect one day a weekend. If I feel maxed out, I’ll spring for a vacation.

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story? 

My friend Kathee is this person. While many people supported me as I started being an artist, she was the one who gave me the most consistent and valuable advice as we were dealing with various stages of growth from the “where are your fans” phase to the “holy cow we need to do a photo shoot” phase. She is a talented advisor and the single person I go to regularly who gives me amazing points of view that have a direct impact on being an artist.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?

Yes, I hope so. I think this is happening in two ways. First, for my first small trucking business clients, we provide transportation throughout the whole 50 states of America, which is helping out the American economy, actually the world. The second way is that we help stores in distribution Center to get their stuff on time.

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? 

My life lesson is never to give up. It’s relevant to my life because I remember I got to a point where I needed to quit because it was getting so hard, right when I was about to quit music, I had 70,000 views on YouTube that kept me going. I didn’t give up anymore so my life lesson is never to give up.
