Tall Guy Car Reviews

Being a YouTuber is a great source of income but it is not easy to establish yourself in the industry. For many people who want to start YouTube channels, researching how successful YouTubers started and emulating their process is a great way to get your foot in the door. 

If you are one of these people or someone who simply researches success stories out of curiosity, you will find this article informative. This blog is about Correy Barrett, a successful YouTuber who attained success in the most unconventional way. He is often recognized by his YouTube channel name: Tall Guy Car Reviews.

Before you keep reading, however, let me be up front with you: starting a YouTube channel sounds glamorous, but it has its issues. My issue with it is you have to CONTINUALLY be hustling for more views and more likes, which means overworking yourself to create more content. I prefer a much more AUTOPILOT business model. A business I can setup that runs without me hustling to create video after video from scratch.

Here’s the course I recommend instead. My own teenagers are using this course to setup autopilot businesses online that require very little ongoing work. There’s a Free Video On This Business Model Here.

Here’s a video of my daughter’s business using this :

The course my daughter used above is much better than becoming a YouTuber. But since you are here to learn about Correy Barrett, lets get back to that:

Who is Correy Barret?

Correy Barret grew up in an unfriendly neighborhood and that had a bad influence on his behavior. He was constantly in fights and was often sent out of school. He was also constantly made fun of for his appearance; he had lighter skin and curly hair. This made him defensive and rough since he had to fight his bullies often. It didn’t help that his father was also not a good role model for him. 

His behavioral issues made it hard for him to stay in school and he dropped out of school by the age of 12. He began smoking with his father. He was practically on the street after some time and he started stealing, selling weed and crack. 

He got caught and that was when he decided to leave the bad vices behind. He started on a clean sheet and got a job. He worked at a daycare, then at Menards, Wendy’s, Subway, and Marshalls. But the money wasn’t enough for him. He found himself back on the streets but this time, he was using more hardcore tactics to make money. He robbed people with fake guns, but he was swatted on February 2007 when a phone he stole was tracked to his home. 

He was sentenced to six years in prison. While he was in prison, he experienced a growth spurt he never anticipated; he grew to a height of 6ft 10in. This is how he got the name, Tall Guy. He received his GED while in prison and fortunately for him, he got out of prison after serving 4 years. 

He went back to school and started playing basketball. He was doing well until he was sacked due to his criminal record. He was lucky to sign up with an overseas basketball team but he suffered an injury to his knee a day before his departure. His basketball dream came to an end just like that. 

While figuring out what he can do next, he leased a Dodge Hellcat, his favorite car at that time for a month. While cruising around in his $600 leased car, he felt a satisfaction he has never felt before. He thought to himself, what if everyone gets to experience this? He got the idea to start a YouTube channel. 

He learned from Tood Johnson how to grow a YouTube channel and also watched lots of car reviews for over 6 years. Although he learned a lot from other YouTubers, he wanted to be different. He didn’t want to come across as the guy who could afford all the vehicles he drove or someone who got these vehicles for free. He wanted to be real with his followers and show them how they can also drive their dream cars even if they cannot afford them. His originality attracted lots of followers to his channel. 

He also emphasized that passion instead of money should be a driving force behind a career move. He is currently based in Los Angeles, California. 

Tall Guy Car Reviews YouTube Channel

Tall Guy’s YouTube channel featured content about cars. He mostly created detailed reviews on the cars.

He also makes videos on getting vehicles wrapped, and his adventures on the road. 

He has reviewed Hellcat, Lamborghini, Porche, Mercedes, Rolls Royce, Ferrari, corvette, and several other cars. 

Late last year, he sold his vehicles to invest in real estate but that didn’t go so well. He still continues to share his life journey on YouTube. His channel has been known to inspire many of his audience. He currently has 859,000 followers and over 1000 videos. He currently has over 144 million views on YouTube.
