We had the good fortune of connecting with Sandy Fernandez and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sandy, what do you attribute your success to?
For me, the most important qualities in any successful person or businesses begins with passion. It is then carried out through sheer determination and persistence. I strongly believe that these characteristics go hand in hand. Talent can only take you so far, the rest of your success is based on the personal fire you carry within your beliefs, your brand and your business. When I started my company these were the top three things I had to fuel me. I had an idea and I had an important message to share with the world. I made a conscious decision that nothing would stop me! It was at that moment that my passion met persistence and it carried me the rest of the way to make my vision a reality.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I teach my clients how to turn passions into a paycheck. The reason I know how to do this, is because it’s exactly what I did. A little over 3 years ago I was fired from my high profile Banking position. It was a moment that catapulted me into the life I had always dreamed of. A life where every day I am doing something I love. I am an Author, Financial Coach and Consultant. I help people manifest abundance by aligning their energy and their finances. How you ask? By connecting Chakra Energy, Financial Data and uncovering the limiting money mindsets and beliefs that are buried within you. Even though I’ve been working harder than ever during the quarantine, I absolutely love it. Over the last 65 days I’ve helped countless amounts of people make money! Yes, even during a global pandemic! Hey, they call me the money angel for a reason. I’ve been helping small business owners stay afloat, helping employees file for benefits, and teaching everyone all the money hacks I’ve learned over the course of a 22 year career in Banking and Finance. Seriously, sometimes I even surprise myself with the things I come up with for my clients! Nothing brings me greater joy than providing solutions to every day money problems. Often people come to me they think that there’s no way out or they just don’t understand how financially things could shift for the better. Then they get on a phone call with me, I provide the magical money answer they were looking for. This time of pandemic has shown me so much more of what the world needs in respect to money. It needs more authenticity, guidance and understanding with respect to money and its energy. I love to teach my clients how to empower themselves and how to take ownership with their money and their finances! Its sad to see that so many people were blindly trusting their accountants, lawyers, lenders and bankers with their money. But friends-it’s YOUR MONEY!!!! You must learn to watch over your bank balances. Its sad to me when I see that you really thought someone else was going to watch over your money, care for it and be a good steward of your wallet on your behalf. Well, i’m here to tell you-Absolutely not! It’s your money! It’s your energy! It’s your wallet! It’s your time! It’s your life! Its time to own it! Money is more than just a currency, it’s a current that runs throughout your life.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
An Ideal day for me would be starting the day with meditation and yoga at the Standard Hotel and Spa, then relaxing by laying out at the pool and staying for lunch at The Lido Bayside grill, They make the freshest cucumber martinis I’ve ever had. At night I’d head over to my favorite Italian restaurant Prima Pasta for dinner.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
There have been many influential people that have shaped my journey along the way and have taught me so much both personally and professionally. However today I will shout out my good friend and business ally Michelle Bryan. She’s just launched her third company and she inspires me with her talent, knowledge and sheer tenacity to achieve success in all she does.
