If Being in College Didn’t Stop YouTuber WooBaby From Succeeding, Nothing Should Stop You Either


Growing up, Taihele WooBaby Williams may not have thought about being a YouTuber. But his family had fun moments at the dinner table listening to his jokes. It was as if he was practicing to become the man he is today. 

His vlog, WooBaby Ty is teaming with thousands of views and it’s just two years since the first video went up. From viral challenges, to reaction videos, WooBaby Ty is the place to be, especially if your taste is content that makes your laugh out loud. 

WooBaby’s Humble Beginnings

Everything may be pointing in the right direction for him, but WooBaby had to start somewhere. He recalls how friends and family urged him to upload his very first videos. That was how a few clips from his iPhone XS MAX gave rise to his channel.

He says that were it not for his subscribers, there was no way he would have made it this far. True to this fact, WooBaby gave his first ever YouTube earnings back to the community. Yes, $100 worth of toys that he donated to a toy drive. “I took that money to purchase toys from the mall for a Toy Drive, because I know there will be greater profits and I couldn’t have done it without my subscribers or viewers,” he says. 

Being a YouTuber, WooBaby has had a couple of memorable moments. However, he has a fond memory of a basketball game he had gone to. “I went to the vending machine during halftime and the kid had called me by my alias, mind you, he was probably 12-13 years old,” he recalls. “It caught me by shock that I was upstate at a time when I thought I wasn’t,” WooBaby adds.

How Not To Burnout as a YouTuber

Like all other content generation activities, vlogging can lead to burnout. WooBaby, however, has a way out of it. By staying focused and maintaining a strong will to persevere, WooBaby believes you can make it. He knows from experience that sometimes content creators think they cannot keep up with the demand for videos that keeps going up as subscribers increase. To make it past this barrier, you have to be perseverent.

Like most entrepreneurs, WooBaby has a few things he wishes he knew before getting into vlogging. The most important, however, is that YouTube is more than just a platform. The people who subscribe to your channel and engage with video content are related in almost the same way as a family is. 

Secondly, it is very important to keep note of trends, as this will always inform you about content that is relevant to your audience. Thirdly, it is not always necessary to look out of the box for ideas, as these are almost always dependent on your audience. If you observe and listen to what your audience is saying, then you will never get it wrong.

What’s In Store?

With such a great start, WooBaby is set up for success. He’s currently looking at future collaborations with other accomplished YouTubers like Jah Playboy, Mo FromBk, and many more to be named from the NYC area.  

Contrary to popular opinion among content creators, WooBaby’s advice to upcoming vloggers is not to view their art as a job, but as a hobby. According to him, “when you start to treat your art like a job, you start to get less attentive to it and your muse will slow down.” He is not the type of person to follow in the tracks of people who have come and gone. 

As a matter of fact, he says he never liked history! “Learning about someone in the past doesn’t help my future or present.” 

“You can’t live in the past,” he says. “That will only slow you down.”
