Julia Andrews is the creator of Connect 2 Close™, a sales method that teaches women how to speak the language of sales through connection. As a sales coach and strategy consultant, Julia’s work is centered around empowering women business owners to break through the limitations of traditional thinking about returns and expectations to achieve next-level results.

Julia leverages her decades-long insight as a top-tier performer in corporate financial services, asset protection, insurance and direct sales to help women realize their potential and achieve the success they envision for themselves. As a wholesaler at OneAmerica Financial Partners, Julia received the coveted award of Internal Sales Partner of the Year for two years in a row (2013 & 2014). Over the course of six years, she and her partners generated over $200 million in insurance sales.

Her extensive background in finance & sales, featuring tenures at Merrill Lynch, Downey Savings & Loan, and Wescom Financial Services, makes her uniquely suited to the needs of entrepreneurs and consultants. Her fluency in Spanish and English allows her to connect more broadly to a cross-cultural clientele. At Merrill Lynch, Julia exclusively served the Spanish-speaking community throughout Latin America. At both Downey Savings & Loans and Wescom Financial Services, Julia expanded her reach to the diverse audience of the greater San Diego & Los Angeles area marketplaces.  

Julia’s work includes private client coaching and sale delivery, as well as personal and corporate consulting, with an emphasis on empowering women in sales.
