We had the good fortune of connecting with Kevin Larney and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kevin, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
My daily routine for growing the company stays very consistent. I wake up and I immediately put out 5-6 pieces of content before I even get out of bed. With social media, it can be very draining. You have posts that get thousands and sometimes millions of views, but the majority of the time I’ve seen posts of mine only receive 1-10 likes on platforms like Instagram. If I was focused on likes and followers, I would’ve stopped making an effort a long time ago in growing this media company. Staying disciplined and being passion-driven seems to be the key to success in my opinion. I’m still just rolling with it.
What should our readers know about your business?
What I love about Wildchat Sports is the uniqueness of what we do. Yes the views, subscribers and other numbers may look underwhelming to the public eye, but the environment we are trying create is really starting to come together. Our main goal is to help athletes portray themselves as celebrities, and give celebrities the opportunities express their interests within the sports. Especially since Quarantine, we’ve seen plenty of celebrities get more involved with athletics or sportstalk while athletes are trying to improve their social following or start producing music etc. Athletes, rap, social media, and movie stars have more in common than ever before, and sports has played a crucial part in that. We are authentic in what we do and we are extremely grateful of the relationships we have built thus far.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
There’s too many. Obviously my closest friends and family have always supported me along the way so I’m extremely appreciative for that… especially on days I feel like I didn’t get 1% better. Outside of that, I learned a lot from all my previous bosses, good and bad. I’m only 23 but I’ve already had 16 different jobs. I learned a lot by trying these different opportunities.
