Tony Sanchez speaks to Elliot Boot, Sales Executive at TFG Capital.

What is the best thing about being in the bridging finance business?

The variety of requirements and customers. No two days are the same and when you think you know everything, a case will come round and teach you something new.

What keeps you focused?

My drive to achieve keeps me on track. I am my own worst critic and that internal monologue keeps me focused on the tasks at hand to be better than before.

What qualities do you look for in your employees or colleagues?

Light-hearted, hardworking, and being able to take ownership.

Are you an optimist or a pessimist?

I’m naturally more on the pessimistic side as I like to be prepared for any potential issues that may happen and happy when they don’t amount to anything.

What did you want to be as a child?

A tattooist. I loved watching Miami ink growing up and even gave it a try when I was younger.

What will be the greatest challenge facing the bridging finance industry in the coming months?

The main challenge I see is for lenders to become more adaptive to the consistently shifting landscape of the industry.

Covid has had a significant impact on the world and the finance industry will be the backbone of how people will be able to push through it and back to a new form of normality.

Who or what makes you laugh?

Andrew and Jamie in the office (Waldorf and Statler) can always say something to make the office laugh.

8 out of 10 cats does countdown is also something I can always watch and get a laugh out of.

Do you dread Monday mornings?

I have never dreaded them, but, it’s always the worst day for me to drag myself out of bed and get on a run or to the gym before work.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

Not to be so harsh on myself if I make a mistake.

With whom would you most like to have dinner?

Joe Rogan, I have been a fan of his for a long time and think we could have some fun conversations over some Elk meat.
