Me: "What advice would you give to your younger self?
Fernando: "Listen, obey, honor and respect your parents first, always. Also, the exciting thing is that when you shake hands with your destiny, it turns your life upside right. And when that happens, you go to bed late, you get out of bed early, knowing we all have 86,400 seconds a day and it's pretty, pretty exciting. You go from existing to living with purpose, and when that happens, it's a game changer. You become the it-factor in people's lives. That's exciting!"
P.S. Fernando was a personal trainer in LA working with many celebrities and has recently moved to New York.
