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

Hi Adam, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
Risk taking can feel dangerous and scary at first. Until, at one time, I realized that if I don’t take risks then I would never know what the outcome would be. With every great success or failure comes immense opportunity. So, I decide to take risks. Especially when change is needed.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I have a successful YouTube channel that covers entertainment, celebrities and reality television. What sets my channel apart from others is I cover daily hot topics in a positive way and consistently have celebrity interviews.

It wasn’t easy to build a base of subscribers. In my business, you have to constantly work very hard to provide amazing content. Whether starting out begging people for interviews and just being told NO a lot, you MUST keep going. There are constantly obstacles to overcome and always someone behind you wanting you to fail. The ultimate challenge is to stay positive and keep pressing forward, there is no backwards.

I wanted to build a brand that would be exciting and fun! There is too much negativity in the world, especially when it comes to entertainment.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
There are so many great spots to eat and drink! We’d start by having brunch at the all-day cafe CULT in Santa Monica, followed by a walk around the pier. Travel north for a cocktail overlooking the Pacific Ocean at Malibu staple, Moonshadows. After an afternoon or relaxing in the sun, we’ll have dinner and drinks on the rooftop of La Peer Hotel at Issima in West Hollywood.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I’d like to shoutout my fiancé, Jason. He always has my back and infinitely supports me. I also need to shout out my supporters, subscribers on YouTube and my family for always pushing me to be better and grow!
