"Character Recommendation I am writing a character recommendation for Mario Hernandez. I had the pleasure of working directly with Mario during my time here as an advertising sales consultant with Angie’s List. His pro-active and positive energy never cease to amaze me. I have worked with hundreds of business owners during my time here, none of which had an impact like Mario. Mario has this incredible energy and outlook on business that has lead him to some great opportunities. I can tell you with a high level of confidence, if 5% of the business owners I speak with on a day to day basis had that same outlook, we would have a better economy and better consumer confidence. Rarely do I get so excited to speak with a business owner who gets it and I mean truly gets it. He gets the importance of 1 customer. • Listening to customer feedback and gets the importance of networking. • Meeting with people in the industry, fixing problems, and he gets the importance of marketing every chance he gets. • Internet age has beckoned a new level of marketing and he knows the importance of not giving up on business ownership in America. • We make the choice to maintain a positive outlook and he sees the importance of being a difference maker and leader in his community • It’s the sum of all the little things you do that change the big things. These are the qualities of business owners who I want to work with. With his abilities, adaptability, and dedication, Mario is an important man to network with. I have no doubts if you talk with Mario, you will feel the positive energy that I felt. I love having conversations with him because he just gets it!
