how it all started
Erna was born and raised in rural South Africa and started her first business, a promotions and events company, at the age of 22.
Having just completed a bachelor’s degree at the University of the Free State, she had zero capital to invest in her first venture. She decided to sell her student car and subsequently succeeded in growing the company to double its turnover year after year.
She started her second company out of sheer frustration. As a newly engaged twenty-something, she wanted to create her dream wedding, but was unable to find a centralized portal for wedding suppliers. Majestic Weddings started off as an online directory service and expanded into a monthly wedding magazine publication with online wedding planning tools.
Both companies were sold for a profit and she has founded two new companies since. Erabella is a premium hair extensions brand focused on making women feel more confident with beautiful hair.
Erna is also the founder of her latest venture, Woman Entrepreneur. Woman Entrepreneur is a multi-phase online and digital platform for women in business that serves to help women build successful businesses and become entrepreneurs by giving them the correct tools and knowledge to grow.
