Roberto Santiago, the Multitalented Entrepreneur

Roberto Santiago is a man of determination, who made it to the top despite the many challenges that surrounded him. Case in point, at the time he decided to do business, Roberto lacked the necessary finances needed to start a big business that he desired to start. Still, he lacked enough education that he needed to make the right decisions in business. Roberto knew that he needed to do something urgently to improve his situation. Consequently, he advanced his education in business before setting out his first business, which was Santa Rosa Café. The venture was started when Roberto was in college as he felt he had gained enough education to venture into business. At this time, Roberto desired to start a large firm, but his finances at the time limited him to start small. After a while, Roberto used his savings in the venture to begin a cartonnage company that dealt with the manufacture of cardboards. The venture turned Roberto’s life around as the savings from the business helped him buy the large land on which he built the Maniara Mall.

As Roberto started Maniara, his intention was to have the venture offer all products under one roof. He also desired to provide the client with luxurious features that would make them happy and relaxed. The above was achieved as the Maniara Shopping Mall hosts luxurious food courts, boutiques, shops, banks, stadiums, theaters, among other ventures. As the customer visits the mall, they can buy all goods and services that they need without having to move to another building.

Where did Roberto Start

Before the business fame which Roberto gained over the years, many people knew him as a children literature author. He sold many volumes of his books in the Brazilian economy and even beyond. In fact, if you mention his names, many kids and parents will identify Roberto as an author. Afterward, Roberto decided to pursue play and script writing to further utilize his creative genius. Roberto was equally successful in the field, making him a darling of his numerous fans. Roberto also participated in play directing, especially in the works that he wrote. Additionally, Roberto had a blog site on which he constantly engages readers from many regions of the world. The articles were mainly inspirational, encouraging the readers to push on, irrespective of the challenges, which they faced. The popularity of the blogs gave Roberto some income and that birthed his interest in investments. He decided to study before investing. Consequently, Roberto joined the Pio Marxist College and later the University Center in Joao Pessoa where he pursued a Bachelor of Commerce. It was while on campus that Roberto decided to utilize his knowledge in practical business.
