Known mostly for owning the Maniara Shopping Mall, Roberto Santiago had no idea that one day he would go into business. He was passionate about writing and never dreamt of entrepreneurship. In fact, he says that business is something that came to his mind when he was a bit old. He had no knowledge of it, and so he had to go back to school at a rather late age.
Roberto was born to average parents, who could not give him a silver spoon at birth. Consequently, he had to utilize his artistic skills to make it in life. Initially, he began by writing children literature; Roberto was very passionate about it that he earned a lot of respect from parents and teachers. Kids also loved him and they looked forward to new publications of their favorite cartoon characters. As time progressed, Roberto started writing play scripts and directing films. He was unquestionably talented in the artistic field, causing people to follow him naturally. Additionally, Roberto was a blogger, who wrote mainly inspirational messages. In an age where people were beaten down by many cares, his message of hope was well received by many. Consequently, Roberto became very popular in Brazil and outside since the social media is international and does not limit one to a geographical zone. Roberto says that he mainly based his writings on his personal experiences as he had faced many failures and decided to rise above them.
The success of the blogs led Roberto to desire to invest his income. However, he feared to invest without any background knowledge in business. Consequently, Roberto enrolled in Pio Marxist College before he joined the University Center in Joao Pessoa where he studied Bachelor of Business Administration. While he was still in College, Roberto started Café Santa Rosa, where he sold healthy foods to the people of Brazil. As is his norm, Roberto gave the best services to the people, and he gained a large clientele. Within no time, he saved enough money and opened a cartonnage company that dealt with the sale of cardboards and other such products. Roberto says that the cartonnage company did so well and turned his life around. The savings from the business were enough to buy the huge piece of land on which the Maniara Shopping Mall is located.
After two years of buying the land, Roberto built and launched the Maniara Shopping Mall, which is rated as the biggest and most modern mall in Brazil. Roberto vision was to offer all goods under one roof. At the same time, he wanted to provide a different experience for the people by giving them a heaven experience on earth. As such, he ensured that fun was provided by every outlet in the mall.
In 2014, Antony Petrello made headlines worldwide when he was announced as the highest paid CEO in the country. This news attracted both praise and disdain from all parts of the country but few people ever posed to ask the two main questions; who is Tony Petrello and why does Tony Petrello deserve to earn so much?
In case you missed the news, 2104 saw Tony Petrello earn more than $68 million to push him to the top of the list of the highest paid CEOs in America. This figure may sound huge but it is a true reflection of the man that is Tony Petrello- a hardworking, honest and caring man who always strives for perfection. Even though Nabors Industries is probably the largest land based oil and gas drilling contractor in the world and could easily afford to pay him that much, it must be noted that his contract with the company directs that up to eighty percent of his income will be based on the profits of the company. For him to have earned that much means that he had brought the company to form and that the company’s profits have been in very good shape under leadership.
As further testimony to his hard work and excellent leadership ability, it is worth pointing out the fact that Anthony Petrello came from very humble beginnings. A former college colleague who shared a dorm room with him during freshman year described him back then as a ‘skinny boy with a thick Italian accent from Newark’. But his brilliance at Math had earned him a full scholarship at Yale and, coupled with his hard work, saw him complete his studies AND GRADUATE FROM Harvard Law School. Even at Nabors Industries, Tony had to claw his way slowly up the ranks over 30 years before eventually made the company’s CEO.
Anthony Petrello and his wife Cynthia are also widely recognized as philanthropists who reserve a sizeable chunk of their wealth to charity and donations. A good example of these is the $7 Million donation that they recently made to the Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute.

Eric Pulier has been doing great work in the technology sector for a long time. In fact, the most surprising thing about him is that most people don’t realize who he is. Eric Pulier is an innovator, entrepreneur, author, and philanthropist. His career embodies the American spirit and his work ethic is something to be marveled at. All growing entrepreneurs would serve well to look at the career track record that Pulier has put together over the past several decades. Despite still looking fresh faced and vibrant, Pulier has a wealth of knowledge behind him. Let’s dig into some of Pulier’s greater works to showcase just what he’s been capable of doing in his career.
To really understand what makes Pulier tick we are going to take a look at his own day of work. Pulier says that he starts each day having gotten a solid night of rest the night before — not always easy when you have four kids in your home. In any event, every morning begins with the delegation of tasks that need to be done for the day. Then, Pulier goes on to say, he sticks to his schedule as rigorously as possible. Schedules are just for show and being able to tick off the boxes of completed task is a great motivator.
That brings us to what Pulier has been up to recently: his philanthropy and entrepreneur work. As far as philanthropists go, there are few who have managed to so hone in on what matters to them like Pulier has. Eric Pulier is the brains behind the Painted Turtle summer camp. The Painted Turtle is a wonderful camp for children who suffer with chronic illness. This camp allows the children to have fun while also raising money to treat their medical needs. The XPrize Foundation, another philanthropic venture, allows children and teenagers the chance to push their tech dreams into reality through contests and money raising ventures. Pulier firmly believes in giving children the chance to excel and his philanthropic endeavors are as effective and focused as ever. We wonder what is next for Eric Pulier and his growing career!

True value has revealed the people that will be taking over various leadership positions from the previous owners. The new chief merchandising officer post has been taken up by market and merchandising expert, Kenneth Goodgame. The university of Tennessee graduate with a bachelor’s degree in marketing has been working with the company in junior positions and has really helped the business turnaround and start making massive profits. In the last quarter alone, the sales grew by 9 percent and more is expected in the coming years.
The companies that Goodgame worked for before his present position include the Hardlines D28. Here, he worked as a product merchant. He led the expansion of the business into Puerto Rico, and this brought about the introduction of 14 more stores in the country. He left the company and headed to Proprietor Brands where he took up the position of Director. He was in charge of brand management for Husky and Workforce lines. This led to a 20 percent increase in sales per foot.
Other places that he has worked include the Home Depot in Atlanta, Newell Rubbermaid in Huntersville NC and Techtronic Hardware. Every company that has had him as their leader has something positive to say about him. He is highly motivated individual that approaches all problems with the aim of getting the solution that will be most beneficial for all. Kenneth states that the secret to achieving success in sales and marketing is being consistent in advertising, especially nationally. He reasons that if customers do not understand the product you are trying to sell to them and advertising is the way to make them understand it.
The other thing that he thinks is important in merchandising stores is the end cap. This is the simple trick that will enable customers find the products they are looking for without too much effort. The products that are being promoted should be placed somewhere within easy reach like at the end of the aisles. In total, the success of a retail business needs many months and at times even years of planning and strategy. Without this, the bottom line will always be a little disappointing.
