Welcome to the ultimate analysis of Troy Candy for 2024.
I’ve spent thousands of hours watching successful business educators on YouTube, including many Australians. I used to live on the Gold Coast and he was well known.
The goal of these profiles is to show you the different ways people have built 6 and 7-figure businesses online, so you can see what it takes to find your own success, starting today.
Troy Candy At A Glance
💡Full Name and Age
Troy Candy’s real name is Troy Williams and he’s 30 years old but looks much older. He uses the name ‘Candy’ because that’s the name of his business.
🤑 Net Worth
You’d be surprised by how rich Gold Coasters are becoming…
As of 2024, I estimate that Troy Williams from Eye Candy Motorsports has a net worth of $7,200,000 Australian dollars.
This includes the value of his home, supercars and businesses.
🤩 Income Streams
Troy runs ECM which is 70% of his income with an extensive client list.
Troy’s other income is derived from sales of The Snorkel.
Troy lives in the Gold Coast but grew up in Melbourne.
He’s a hustler who doesn’t give up easily.
❌ Notable Complaints
He has been to court on drug charges. He does claim these were wrongful charges.
🚀 The X-Factor
He’s sometimes referred as Candyman 2.0 but he’s quite unique.
📈 Creator Trends
He’s still growing massively on social media.
🕵🏻♂️ Private Life
Troy Candy has a wife called Anita Cassin. Together, they have a child called Saint Williams.
👨🏻💻 My Verdict
He may have a questionable past but he’s built a remarkable business. A true hustler that won’t give up easily.
I’m Joshua Smith from Australia. I have been building profitable content sites since 2011.
Today, in addition to managing my own portfolio, I actively help others on their journey.
How much does Troy Candy make and how?
Troy, I estimate, makes somewhere in the region of $70,000 per month. He does this through:
➜ Eye Candy Motorsports – the workshop turns over a ton
➜ Selling The Snorkel all over social media
As noted above, this brings his net worth to $7.2m AUD. That sounds high but that represents the value of his two businesses.
Australians really praise him for:
➜ Being real and raw about his struggles
➜ Showcasing his epic adventures on YouTube
➜ Turning his life around in recent years
➜ Choosing the right people for his brand
And he’s ultimately taken his two businesses quite seriously.
Troy’s Red Flags
Troy’s fame has brought some controversy. These include:
➜ Driving unroadworthy cars that were modified
➜ The numerous drug charges (was he setup?!)
➜ Picking the wrong team members at times
➜ Doing a burnout and having the police attend
Despite the struggles, he remains highly optimistic and cannot please everyone.
The X Factor
The unique qualities of Troy include:
➜ He’s a hustler in a country where most Australians are lazy AF
➜ He is respectful to others within the Aussie motorsports industry
➜ He’s a family man at heart, with a good relationship with his mum
➜ His wife Anita is respectful and supports his mission
And he serves as an inspiration for others to start working hard.
Ultimately, I’ve learned a ton from watching his videos on Youtube.
He’s been an open book about how he runs his businesses:
To save you some time, my key takeaways include:
➜ Work hard and play the long game
➜ Connections are super important
➜ Ignore the haters and critics
➜ Business is a crazy adventure
Troy is a true inspiration that I hope many more younger people pay attention to.
He genuinely wants to help people and has run several car giveaways.
Unfortunately, he’s hard to work with 1-on-1. Success often requires a helpful mentor who’s local too.
So if you need a hand, I’d love the opportunity to help.
