Interview with Juan van Wyk (@juan.vanw)
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
Meeting new people has lead me to this career path. I enjoy being around others as it gives me an opportunity to gain more knowledge and to connect with more people..
Can you share the most interest in exciting happened to you since you started doing this?
I have had encounters with some very interesting people around the world, and its always very interesting to hear how and why people get into a certain career path.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?
Always try get the job done as soon as you get given a task. Do not wait until the last minute to do something, as this can make things very difficult and stressful.
None of us can succeed without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
My brother has helped me choose my career path. He explained that it is not necessary to get amazing results in school to become successful. This is why I am grateful towards him.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I have helped many people, by either donating, or even by sharing my past experiences with people to help them achieve the same success.
Do you have a favourite “written Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“Just do it” is a quote by Nike that I love. I find this quote relevant in everyday life, as some things just need to get done. It has helped me to understand that life becomes less stressful when work or even exercise gets done before you go out to have fun.
