Raj Fernando knows that the key to being a successful business person is to be more than just a business person. While he has a been a great member of the Chicago trading scene and a business owner who is able to be successful he also works as a philanthropist for different charities and foundations.
Beginning in college, he was able to get what he wanted out of the things that he did for different people. He started his career early and worked for trading companies while he was still in college. This allowed him to get his foot in the door and to make the connections that he knew he would need after he graduated with his bachelor’s degree from the university that he attended. It worked and he was able to get exactly what he wanted out of the career that he had set in place for himself.
This did not change the way that he did things, though. He knew that he wanted to make a difference and knew that the only thing that would lead him to that would be to start his own business. Chopper Trading was the first business that he created and was something that he was very proud of. He quickly learned that he would not be able to do it unless he sold it off which made him even more successful at life. This was something that he had looked forward to in different aspects of life and something that he wanted to do. He used the money from the sale to start another business that should have been even more successful.
From that point on, Raj Fernando learned that charity was his key to becoming even more influential. He is on the board of the Chicago Orchestra and has donated time to the Clinton Foundation. He works to use his power, his name and his money work for people who he is better able to serve. He uses this to bring charitable donations to people that are members of the charities that he cares about because it allows him to feel successful.
