In this episode of the Road To Growth podcast, we are pleased to introduce you to Andrea (Andi) Frimmer. Andi is the owner and president of Prep 4 College Now. She has over 30 years of experience in the education industry, most recently working as an independent college admission counselor with high school students and their families.

Ed. from Boston University in Boston, MA and her B.S. in Education from Temple University, in Philadelphia, PA, where she graduated with honors. 

Before starting her own company, Andi spent 25 years as a master teacher working with special needs children of all ages and disabilities. After retiring, Andi owned and operated Study Hall USA, a tutoring company based in San Marcos, CA.  It was while working with these students that Andi decided to begin helping them turn their college dreams into reality. With strengths such as organization skills, a strong work ethic, attention to detail, and excellent communication and presentation skills, it was the logical next step for Andi to start Prep 4 College Now, Inc.

Andi makes time to be involved in the community and professional organizations.  She is a member of Circle of Life, the fundraising arm of Scripps Hospital Encinitas.  Andi has participated in three marathons raising money for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society as part of Team in Training. She is an active member of her religious organization and is a member of several committees.  She is a member of WACAC (Western Association of College Admission Counselors), Rancho Santa Fe Business and Professional Women, Women’s Wisdom, and San Diego Business Connections.

Humberto Hernandez, Jr. Owner and President of American Profit Consulting

January 14, 2020

In this episode of the Road To Growth podcast, we are pleased to introduce you to Humberto Hernandez. Humberto, after spending 14 years in the banking industry, most recently as a Commercial Banker, I noticed the one constant commonality among all business owners I spoke to... the need for money.

Fact: 70% of bank loan applications are declined.

In 2017, I founded American Profit Consulting to make a positive change to that statistic by educating my clients with the truth versus selling them. Since then I’ve used my unique insider knowledge gained from working in both national and community/local banks to navigate the entire loan application process for my clients from structuring the loan request to negotiating rates and terms all the way to closing. Humbly, I can state that I have had a 100% success rate in assisting my clients get approved for capital.

In my career, I have funded over $150,000,000 to small business owners and entrepreneurs and currently have 100+ working relationships within and out of market banks, non bank lenders, direct funders, non-profit & not-for-profit lenders, government entities, hard money lenders, equipment lenders, etc. If I can’t get it done, NO ONE can.

If you are a business owner in need of money, looking for startup capital to fund your dream, or are a bank representative having to decline a client’s loan request I believe you owe it to yourself to call me at (619) 200-0351. I think you’ll be happy you did.
