Robert Santiago made it to the top from a very humble background. He had gone through many struggles by the time he started writing his blog posts, but he had overcome them all. Roberto felt that he could use his experience to encourage other people and give them tips on how to make it through the problems. Roberto’s blog post made him very successful and he decided to invest more in other types of businesses. He desired to have a large piece of land on which he would run a business. However, he lacked the business knowledge and resources required. Consequently, he first decided to join the college and university where he majored in Business Administration.
When Roberto was in college, he learned that he could start a small business and use the savings from there to start a larger business. Consequently, he first started with the Café Santa Rosa, which served healthy meals to the people in Brazil. Roberto saved all the money that he fetched from the business and used it to open a cartonnage company. The cartonnage firm dealt with cardboard, plastics, and other products’ manufacture and it was highly successful. Roberto said that the business was very successful and the high profits were saved and used to buy the land on which the Maniara Shopping Mall in Brazil stands. Within two years of buying the land, Santiago built and launched the mall to all the Brazilians and tourists. The venture is very successful and it has made Roberto a billionaire within a short span of time. Maniara is rated as the most modern and advanced mall in Brazil.
Before he ventured into all these businesses, Roberto engaged in writing children literature that was used highly among the Brazilian schools. Statistics show that these books still fall among the children’s favorite in the country. Later, Roberto engaged in script writing and play directing in the Brazilian theaters. In his leisure time, he also engaged in motorsports and bawling, and he is still actively involved in these activities. Moreover, he has won several awards in motorsports for his consistency and dedication to the game.
- Hard work and determination: Roberto says that he gives his all in any venture that he engages in. The above explains why he has risen to the top within a short time.
- Discipline: Roberto is very disciplined in resource management. His most important resources are time and money, which he uses well because once lost he says they cannot be recovered. His money saving discipline helped him save enough money to purchase the Maniara Mall
- Strategy: Roberto says that one must strategize carefully on how to achieve their vision. He strategizes effectively to make it in his endeavors.
