Humility is a trait best learned from childhood. It puts other people at ease and displays good character. For Fernando Bernardino, humility has not only made him reputable among his peers, but it has also been a factor in his success.
Fernando Bernardino was born into a humble family from Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico. Beginning there and later on in the continental United States, his family taught him the traits that would later define his success. When he grew older, Fernando majored in Political Science at Florida Gulf Coast University. He made the tough choice of dropping out in his senior year.
While the chance to become a lawyer was missed, more opportunities opened up for Fernando. He would earn his first million at the age of 23 and two years later, bought his first exotic car.
In 2010, Fernando founded and operated Stellar Media Group, a company that focused on handling internet marketing efforts for publicly traded companies. Since then, he’s helped hundreds of companies raise millions of dollars in capital for operations, research & development, payroll, and more. Fernando was able to make a strong foothold in the industry by providing his services for free at the start for new clients. Although this may have seemed like a risky move for others, he saw that it was not only necessary to establish relationships, but proved his authenticity to anyone he would come into contact with in the industry.
Fernando ventured into the digital marketing industry when he saw that countless people had taken money but failed to deliver. The number of times this happened caused people to hesitate in their plans to strike up new business. Other people have even gone through theft, scam, or undelivered promises. Fernando saw the opportunity to be genuine, took it, and has seen his work pay off greatly.
Apart from Stellar Media Group, Fernando also owns and operates Meraki Events. The company focuses on throwing techno concerts based in Orlando, Florida. It was the first company to bring big-name techno producers and DJs to the area outside of Electric Daisy Carnival, another music festival in Orlando. Initially, agencies were standoffish about sending their big acts to the area. At the time, Orlando wasn’t known for having an underground scene. Things changed, however, since Meraki began, and today Orlando is blessed with a booming techno scene.
Fernando convinced the artist’s agencies to give him a chance by showing them he was willing to pay above top dollar to ensure that the artists were getting paid handsomely for giving Orlando a shot. His sincerity won them over, and since then, artists have come to love and visit Orlando to party and bring their families to visit the theme parks in the area.
This year, after seeing the need for people to grow their personal brand, Fernando took off to helping others grow their social media presence and leverage their network to strike up new business opportunities. This venture even allowed Fernando to bring others to build a substantial side hustle for simply sending direct messages.
Thanks to the values that Fernando Bernardino grew up with, he has shown sincerity and a genuine character that brings people to trust him as he shows the value for his reputation to the maximum. Whenever an opportunity to do the right thing presents itself, Fernando delivers on his promises.
