Portland Rotary - Vocational talk for September - Nick Fandel

Posted on: Friday, 10 September 2021

Nick Fandel's decision to leave the banking world and form his own business was sound.

The timing? Not quite.

It was Jan. 1, 2020, and the sounds of the economic-silencing pandemic were showing. For Nick Fandel and his mortgage brokerage firm, anxiety and "sleepless nights" prevailed. But the support of family (wife, Molly and their 3-1/2-year old son), friends and Rotary was critical to beginning with a small number of accounts and growing from there.

"We're still going strong," Nick told Pearl Rotarians Sept. 7.

"The biggest thing was you guys [in Pearl Rotary] and my family. I'm very appreciative."

He closed with a lesson he's learned over the past year and half: "Smiles and a wave really go a long way."
