We had the good fortune of connecting with Shayla North and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Shayla, what is the most important factor behind your success?
Consistency; is hands down the main factor behind the success that I have seen with stocks, Youtube, and music. It’s all about consistency. Also, I’ll have to add having a constant hunger for knowledge and always wanting to learn more has made expanding much easier.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
As far as my YouTube channel “Black Girl Stocks”, every piece of it is a part of my art in some way. From the music in the background to the graphics and effects to the logo and the merch; all of that is designed by me. I just think that is something that sets me apart from others in this sector. It’s very easy for me randomly get inspired to design a new merch item and post it within the hour or to make a new video that helps people learn how to read a stock chart and earn passive income.

I can vividly remember being in high school and I didn’t really go to parties much. I found so much joy in making music in my room or making some type of graphic design on my computer and I think that learning those skills throughout my young life has helped to create many forms of income and do things I love. It wasn’t an easy journey but it definitely wasn’t hard either. I attribute that to going to school and getting an education because in doing so, I was able to have a good-paying job and get whatever equipment I needed at the time so education is definitely important.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Okay hey friend, so first we would have to visit the Dallas aquarium and arboretum. then after that, we can just hang out in the area because there is so much to get into downtown. Of course, we will probably take a trip to Northpark mall to get some shopping in, and knowing me I’ll probably want to drive around and enjoy looking at the beautiful homes and manifesting homes of our own. We are definitely going to take a trip to Blends to get some top-notch daiquiris and somewhere in there taking a trip to Interskate for adult night. I’m not much of a nightlight person so we will have to play that part by ear.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Well, first I would have to give a shoutout to my mom and dad. My parents have been very influential in my life. It is such an honor to be able to look to them for guidance and love. They also inspired me to trade stocks since childhood so in a way I wouldn’t be where I am today and helping other people if it wasn’t for my parents.

Also, a special shoutout to Stormy Wellington, also known as “Coach Stormy” on social media. A lot of her inspirational videos and live chats gave me the courage to not only start my business but to be fearless in my growth.
