About Me

MY EXPERIENCE WITH TECH & STARTUPS

Hello! My name is Fernando and I currently live in sunny South Florida. I was born and raised in Brazil, but I am also Portuguese and American. I am an electronic engineer. Actually, I am also an industrial and electrical engineer. And I have a MBA.

Passions

I am divided into 2 passions. The first side is related to America – business, innovation and entrepreneurship. The other side is related to Europe – I love the lifestyle, the formality, the education of the old world. Trying to combine these 2 passions is sometimes not possible, but I try my best.

I started my career as financial planner because I am good with data, Excel and Macros for Excel. I wrote a book on Macros for Excel at 27 years-old that sold over 30,000 copies and it was published by a major publisher in Brazil.

Entrepreneurship

Before I turned 30 years-old though, I had to jump into entrepreneurship. I opened my first company to do a logistics web platform for Oil and Gas Companies in Brazil. This company won an award on Innovative Technologies and my system was used on some of the biggest Oil and Gas companies in the world.

However, Brazil is hard place for entrepreneurs, I needed more opportunities and guess my calling was somewhere else.

USA

At 34 years-old, I moved to Silicon Valley. I spent 1 year studying web development at University of California. I also took courses in Stanford and Harvard online. I became better at creating websites and apps, I even learned how be to be a hacker, an ethical hacker, of course. But I didn’t know how to market my services. That’s when I started to learn SEO, PPC and Facebook Advertisement.

Online Reputation

After working as a web developer for a few companies, I decided to jump into entrepreneurship again, I guess I always had this calling for entrepreneurship. I opened a SEO company in 2015. And I ended up discovering a similar service – ORM – Online Reputation Management. I helped celebrities, politicians, notorious business men. I also developed websites, simple apps, SEO, PPC and Facebook/Instagram Ads Campaigns, I made tons of Sales Funnels for many companies. I wrote books on Online Reputation Management, SEO and Cyberbullying. I had mentions on Forbes, Entrepreneur, Tech Stars, many Brazilian magazines and newspapers and I also was on TV! It was a lot of  work I tell you. It was 24/7 non stop. And it wasn’t scalable, it wasn’t global.

Then, I stumbled upon Amazon.

Amazon

Amazon is very interesting for any entrepreneur that is looking for global scalability. I realized my know-how in SEO, ORM, PPC, Ads, Social Media, Branding, Sales Funnels, Logistics, Excel, combined with giant Amazon, meant that I could apply everything I knew into my own brands. And I am not talking about Kindle books, I am talking about private label brands with cool products and gadgets, international logistics, Amazon Advertisement – Really creating brands of real products!

And that’s where I stand today. In one short sentence: I am an Excel geek who loves the European lifestyle and the American Entrepreneurship, who became a web developer, who is very good at internet marketing and Amazon Private Label brands. That’s me! In one short sentence.

WHERE MY SKILLS SHINE

According to Fernando Azevedo, CEO of social marketing agency Y bus, “Facebook seems all but immune to criticism and downsizing. Advertising agencies and their clients just don’t care that much about number crunching, because no matter how you slice it, Facebook has got the edge on Millennial viewership.”
