Candice Van Wyk is a Speaker, Property Investor, Entrepreneur, Business & Property Coach, and Advocate for SME Development.
Candice Van Wyk was born in South Africa, in a small city called Boksburg in the Province of Gauteng. As a little girl she always sensed that there was something significant she needed to do in life and from a young age had aspirations to become a successful entrepreneur and help make this world a better place. In fact at the age of about 7 she created her own business cards. She imagined herself owner of a very successful business. Today she is pursuing that very Dream.
Candice’s Vision is to be a global influential leader and catalyst in growing small and medium sized businesses and this she plans to achieve through her Mission, which is to equip, empower and coach people in the areas of Property and Business.
She is especially passionate about coaching women entrepreneurs and aspiring women entrepreneurs on how to grow their businesses with limited resources.
She is the Co-Founder and Director of property ventures, Laos Holdings and Property Pick, as well as newly registered property development company- Evimeria Holdings.
Candice’s business journey started by registering her first business Crystal Garnet Bridal Boutique in 2010.
In 2010 Candice and her mom converted her mom’s garage into a mini bridal boutique and this is where Crystal Garnet Bridal Boutique started. She consulted with brides on a part-time basis for about three and a half years. In January 2011 she started a Dreamwall and this was after she heard a teaching at church about the power in having a Dreamwall. The Bible teaches us in Proverbs 29:18 (KJV) that where there is no vision, the people perish. Another translation (NLT) says that they run wild, meaning they have no focus and will eventually die…she then made a decision that day to start her own Dreamwall or what some may call a vision board. She added a picture of a well-established bridal boutique to it, which she found in a magazine and said that this is what she wants her bridal boutique to look like one day. She did not know where it was or who it belonged to at the time, but she imagined her mini bridal boutique looking like this one day. In 2014 an opportunity became available for her to move into this very same bridal boutique, i.e. the one that she had on her Dreamwall! The Power of a Dream.
