Play • 48 min

When Rita Onyx proposed starting a family YouTube channel for fun—and a little extra cash—she could not have predicted the reroute that would happen next. The whole family jumped on board, and within two weeks their videos BLEW UP! Now, with over 3 million subscribers on the original family channel (and 6.3 million combined with spin-offs,) Onyx Family is a growing multimedia brand with multiple YouTube channels, books, a podcast, and a magazine (just to name a few!). In this episode, we’re chatting with Mirthell & Rita Onyx—Dad and Mom of the Onyx family—about their road to success, identifying & nurturing their kids’ unique talents, and honoring their faith as they continue to turn their passions into an empire.


We’re exploring:

  • Mirthell & Rita dish on the strategies that helped their first YouTube channel take off
  • What motivated their 4 kids (Shalom, Sinead, Shasha, & Shiloh) to get involved in the fun
  • Finding balance (and boundaries!) for reading comments on their socials and videos
  • POWERFUL advice on overcoming struggles through your core: love, values & community
  • Why tapping into the family’s natural talents—and developing new skills during homeschool—is KEY to their success
  • They share their TOP TIPS to avoid burnout and stay motivated in the pursuit of new endeavors
  • And so much more!
