Roberto Santiago Launches Manaira Mall For The Convenience Of Brazilians

The legendary entrepreneur, Roberto Santiago, will stop at nothing when it comes to business matters. Known for his input in growing the economy of Brazil, Santiago has been a role model to millennial who look forward to starting businesses. For him, the focus lies in the small, first, steps towards greatness. Roberto Santiago was born in 1958. Hailing from Joao Pessoa, he attended the famous Pio-X-Marist School. Being visionary, he advanced his education by joining Joao Pessoa University. Perhaps his concentration in business administration was the main contributor to his career in business.


The mall is launched


Roberto Santiago is the proprietor of the luxurious Manaira Mall, based in Pessoa, Brazil. Having been built in 1987, the shopping mall has been of great service to the community. It took Roberto two years to launch the mall, duration in which he spent, assessing the shopping behaviours of Brazilians. For Roberto, it is all about focusing on the positives that will retain clients eventually. His concentration on understanding what clients prefer paved the way for constructing a shopping mall with top modern features. Manaira Mall harbours some features that would not be found in conventional shopping malls.


What makes Manaira Mall tick?


Manaira Mall was structured with the idea of family and friends in mind. Often, malls capitalize on shopping stores only. Unlike the tradition, Manaira Mall has capitalized on all aspects of a normal person’s life. From entertainment to food production and games, this mall covers a broad range of services and products. What is more, the management is overly friendly and accommodating in many ways. With the guidance of Roberto Santiago, Manaira Mall has been progressively revolutionizing the idea of building a one-stop shopping mall for convenience.


The features of the mall


Manaira Mall has a hall dubbed the Domus. This hall is located at the rooftop. Launched in 2009, Domus Hall is big enough to accommodate over 9,000 people. Usually, it is utilized in concerts, weddings, live auditions, graduation ceremonies and conferences among others. Given that it is for hire, Roberto did sufficient background research to determine the economic viability of the project. Domus Hall has hosted international artists. For those who would like to learn the Brazilian culture, that is the place to spend most of your time. Most artists converge in that place to share knowledge and ideas on current events.




Manaira Mall offers the people of Brazil the chance to shop for multiple items under one roof. From financial services to education, this mall exists to better people’s lives. With the constructive aggression Roberto applies in business, it is possible for Manaira Mall to multiply the profit generated by two in a few years. Santiago’s story reflects dedication and resilience in business.

Kyle Bass’ Comments On China Seem Inert

In a recent Bloomberg interview, Bass said that if China “materially” were to have a currency devaluation, current economic collapse concerns may not have the weight he’s previously imputed. He said whatever happens in the next two to three years, it won’t be “Armageddon”. He further pointed out that should the material devaluation happen, it would be an exciting time to invest in China.

Contrast this with an earlier statement he made where he gave China’s economic collapse a forty to fifty percent chance of happening by the end of 2016. Then dial it back to October of 2015, when first he began calling doom and gloom on China for their expanding debt bubble, and a clearer picture emerges. Financial vocabulary swept away, all Bass has really said is that China could do good, or they could do bad; which basically means nothing. Bass has compared China’s economy now to that in America pre-2008, when the Great Recession hit. That’s kind of spurious, considering China’s population is 1.3+ billion, or more than four times that of the United States. That is a ubiquity of human capital which is definitely not being accurately represented on paper. It’s likely that an economy with such a population can grow a bubble with much greater tensile strength then that blown by America’s sub-prime lending faux pas. The point is, even if he’s right, and China’s economy does resemble America’s during this time, he may have neglected to consider that timetables for them will necessarily differ from those in America.

But maybe he does recognize this, and he’s trying to manipulate the market such that fringe investors bearing substantial capital may withhold their investment, and thus artificially facilitate the collapse Bass has seemed rabid to produce since at least October, UsefulStooges reports. His media influence and past history would certainly make such a scheme within the realm of possibility. Between running a hedge fund, regularly supporting a socialist leader in Argentina responsible for twice defaulting the country (Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner), and undercutting banks like Bear-Stearns on Wall Street in a way which led to personal profit, Bass has a sordid history of financial dealings. It is recommendable, then, to consider his China predictions in the same light.

Bruce Levenson Made His Career Happen

There are some things that not too many people are able to do because the jobs are limited, and because it just takes too much work to be able to have the jobs. But, even though both of those things are true of being a team owner, there is no reason for someone to give up on their dream of making that happen if it is something that they want to do. Bruce Levenson dreamed of owning a team for a long time before he bought one, and now he is able to appreciate the success that he has had. There might only be a few people who are able to do something like that, and it might require a lot of hard work to be able to achieve it, but that does not mean that anyone who wants it should not try for it. Who knows what can happen when they do that?
Bruce Levenson didn’t know that his dreams would come true when he set out to make them happen. He had no guarantee that he would see the kinds of success that he has had in his life, but he set out toward the goal of owning a team for himself, anyway. And now he has to be glad that he did, as he is able to enjoy the feel of owning an NBA team.
Bruce Levenson has been a hard worker in his career. He has made sure to always do his best no matter where he was working or who he was working for because he knew that that was the way to success. Anyone who wants to own a team for themselves one day should consider that. The should think about how Bruce Levenson made it a point to deliver good work to each of the companies that he worked for, and they should try to do the same, themselves.
It requires quite a bit of hard work, and a large amount of motivation, for one to be able to have the kinds of success that they want to have in their career. It takes a special kind of person who is willing to put in a lot of work to own an NBA team. But, if that is something that someone feels passionately about doing, then there should be no stopping them from trying to make their dreams happen. Like Bruce Levenson did, they just might be able to make it happen.

Non-Accredited Investors Are Now Welcomed

For most of the history of investment firms, accredited investors has been the most sought after prize. These are the investors who have a net worth of greater than $1 million while also possessing an annual income of $200,000 or more. These are the kind of people who are likely to have extra money to put money into the market. That being said, Forefront Capital now seeks out non-accredited investors to put money in the market with them as well.

They hire the best market watchers around and make sure that even small-scale investors are able to get the information they require about the market.

This is no longer the case. Now, Forefront Capital can help them and make sure that they start putting some of their dollars to work for them. It may help get them from being in the middle class to greater things in the future.

It has to start as soon as possible and this means that one does not have the time to wait around until their income increases. He wants to help people here and now where they are. Forefront Capital is making it happen.

Joseph Bismark: How a monk does business


The popular blog Left Handed Right Mind recently posted an article innovative businessman Joseph Bismark, a successful leader at international direct sales company Qnet. In it the author presented some tenets of Mr. Bismark’s business and life philosophy that struck me as unique and refreshing.

In the article it states Mr. Bismark became a monk in his early childhood in his native Philippines. He remained there until he struck to make his mark on the business world at the age of 17. Mr. Bismark does not go into detail about his time as a monk, but as I read on, I became convinced that his time there shaped him into the dynamic leader he has become. In addition to his position at Qnet Mr. Bismark also spends a great deal of his time working on behalf of Qi Group, an organization whose goal is to promote a more environmentally responsible way of life.

At Qnet Bismark has encouraged entrepreneurial practices among Qnet’s many independent representatives. He places a strong emphasis on corporate teamwork and many believe his leadership is a major reason for the rapid growth in sales of the health and wellness product lines at Qnet.

Qi Group has also seen success under Mr. Bismark including the company’s resort Prana in Koh Samui which is powered from environmentally solar and a tower in Malaysia that has gone paperless in and effort to reduce the consumption of trees. Since taking over at Qi in 2008 the company has seen amazing growth and is now doing business in 30 countries with more than 1500 employees and is involved in businesses as diverse as hospitality and finance.

In conclusion Mr. Bismark’s philosophy of a calm peaceful spirit has allowed him to maintain leadership positions at two rapidly growing companies like Qnet and Qi Group. His encouragement of the entrepreneurial spirit and teamwork, along with his dynamic style of leadership have been a benefit to both companies. Perhaps we all could befit from a little bit of a monks spiritual training.
