Today we’d like to introduce you to Tyrik Wynn.
Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
At 14 years old in 2014, I wrote my 1st book, “Green Is The Thing! Money Management For Kids.” The purpose of this book was to teach kids how to make, save and manage their money at a young age because I was taught this at a young age. Nowadays, the school systems are lacking financial literacy, which is a problem. I wanted to be part of the solution. My mom had already written two books herself, so I had tons of help from her. When I published, the books tons of media outlets continued to reach out to bring me on their platforms to do interviews, so that’s when I had my first press tour. When I was getting invited to do all these interviews, that’s how I got the “media bug.” I started watching the news regularly, watching talks shows and more, and that’s when I realized I wanted to be a TV personality.
In August of 2016, my parents and I were in the car, and I said to them, “I want to create my own show, so let’s go to NBC, CBS, ABC and tell them to make me a show.” My parents told me that unfortunately, it doesn’t work like that. They informed me that I should start on YouTube and get discovered from there. A few weeks later, I set up a small tripod and a small Nikon camera and began to film myself talking. It took a lot of takes to get it halfway decent. I decided to name the show “Tyrik On The Move.” My first guest was actually my mom, and I interviewed her about her books. I continued to do more episodes, and then I landed my 1st paid gig. I was asked to come and interview various authors at an author showcase event. That’s when I realized I can start making money off of my show and I made a few dollars here and there. At 1st my show was lacking viewership, and I realized I needed to change up some things, so I had the amazing idea to start interviewing celebrities on my show. I have had the amazing pleasure of interviewing Vice President Kamala Harris, Congressman John Lewis, Tony Gonzalez, Judge Lauren Lake, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, RHOA’s Cynthia Bailey, Boxer Gervonta Tank Davis, Anthony Hamilton RHOA’s Kandi Burruss, Drew Brees, Andrew Yang, BNC’s & RHOA’s Mike Hill, BNC’s Sharon Reed, Sierra McCormick and so many more. Bringing on these amazing celebrities has helped the show grow tremendously and I can’t thank them enough.
In 2017, I got really passionate about being a news anchor/reporter and I actually tried to get a job at some of the major news stations here in Atlanta, but they informed me that I could not work there because I was still in high school and I didn’t have experience. Since they told me no, I went and created my own news broadcast called “TW News.” I would go around town, report on various stories, and come back home and anchor my own newscast for the show. When I was doing this, I was the anchor, a reporter, the meteorologist, the producer and everything else in between.
My parents noticed that I was very passionate about all of this, and they said when I turned 18, we would turn all of this into a business. In December of 2018, we created Wynn Productions LLC. At 1st Wynn Productions was only a production company that taped “Tyrik On The Move.” After we created the company, our 1st credentialed event was Super Bowl 53 and the Lord continued to bless us from there.
Over the past few years, Wynn Productions LLC has come a very long way. Now at Wynn Productions, we specialize in professional videography services, which are TV Commercials, Customer Testimony Videos, Video Business Cards, Drone/Aerial Filming, Television Shows, Event Filming, and more. Wynn Productions also sells digital billboard ads. The purpose of people using our services is so they can grow their business and get tons of exposure. Right now Wynn Productions goals are to get all of the shows we tape and produce on major television networks and streaming platforms and to open up our own studio and office space.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It has not been easy. There have been lots of stressful moments, lots of disappointments and lots of obstacles, but by the grace of God, I have overcome them. For example, at first, when I was trying to get celebrity interviews, all of their publicists kept telling me no because my audience was not big enough and so lots of people would never give me a chance, but in the end, the Lord led me to reach out to the right people and apply for credentials to the right event and now it’s pretty easy for me to get celebrity interviews.
On the business side of things, when we first started doing video production, it was very hard to get clients to purchase our services and I would always have to reach out to people so they could purchase our services and support the business, and I kept getting no, not at this time, I’m not interested, etc. Now, the Lord has blessed us where we no longer have to reach out to anyone. Tons of customers come to us on a weekly basis to buy video production services and billboard ads.
We’ve been impressed with Wynn Productions, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?

I have really big plans for the future.

We will also open up a big-time studio and office space for the business.
My personal future plans include graduating from Georgia State University in 2022, owning my own television network and streaming platform, winning an Emmy Award, create more hit TV shows, getting cast on a reality TV show, and so much more.
