How did failures transform a low class guy named Roberto boligan better known as “bertocanfly” from a broke man with no place to go, into a successful entrepreneur living a luxurious life.

Who’s Berto? Speak to us about your character, your drive, and your WHY.

Who is berto.. lol great question. It wasn’t until later in life was I even equipped to answer this question. Im an ordinary person that no one expected anything from .. Then one day I grew tired of a life of mediocrity and I pushed my limits and did what some would say is extra-ordinary. My breakthrough was through Faith and belief, And It allowed me to redefine what’s possible…that’s who I am. 

My why is simple… What’s the meaning of success in life if you cant share it. And what I mean by success is true happiness.. My why is to give back to the world the gifts that god has given me, to show the world that “with god all things are possible” Matthew 19:26

What motivated to start your page @bertocanfly?

What started out as a simple means to connect to my friends with pictures of my lamborghini’s and fashion photography, as I started to become inspired I felt obligated to also inspire others through a positive and motivational message

What would you say is your biggest vision?

They say if your dreams don’t scare you then you’re not dreaming big enough… sometimes I feel that my ambitions are so massive that some would say I’m crazy. Lol.. my vision is to one day change the world with the power of belief . that’s my legacy

What has been one of the hardest situations in your life? How have you learned to overcome them?

there are so many hard situations I have encountered but one in particular stands out… I was laid off from my job at Tropicana. I was a Route Sales Representative for nearly 8 years and I devoted a great deal of my life to this position.. Without notice one day I came in unknowingly it would be my last day. But that day taught me something very important… Prior to that, I prayed a lot and asked for more income, not knowing that sometimes you must take a step back to make two steps forward…Success can disguise itself as a setback..How you look at pitfalls or setbacks makes you the person you will become in life.

How important is failure in life? Is it necessary? 

ALL successful men and women in history have had failures to become successful. In fact these people I speak of failed more than they succeeded. Again it’s thorough your failure will you find out which direction not to go… And sometimes the pain can make you stronger for the harder road ahead… look at it this way.. When you’re working out at the gym, you are intentionally pushing your muscles to the point of failure.. That’s where the adaptation is. Its only through failure can we experience growth.

What inspired to get into cars? What made you become an influencer?

I’ve always looked at exotic cars as a form of artwork. It’s something I’ve always been passionate about since I was a kid playing video games. Lol. Also the exotic car community brings together like minded individuals that in some case can elevate your environment and inspire you to want more from life. I’ve met some close celebrities, friends, and fellow entrepreneurs through cars and to this day continue to meet amazing people.

What inspired you to start your movement on social media?

We live in a new day and age where Social media is the new soap box to reach the masses. Instagram, Facebook , Twitter etc… this is the new way to connect to people of all ages and The key is to make your voice mean something, in a good way.

What would you say is your biggest achievement?

Buying My brand new Lamborghini Aventador. Lol… Understand that I was broke, exhausted, and defeated. I had absolutely no idea how I could possibly one day accomplish my dreams. So to come from nothing to something was paramount for me and buying the Aventador was the achievement that I told myself if I could ever have one THAT would be the moment that I truly made it…

What’s your message to all the young people out there that are trying to be successful today?

Never give up on your dreams… no matter how tired you are, how far away they may seem, or unrealistic they may be. Only you determine your reality and you have control over your destiny.

Be not conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. “Destiny is obligated by universal law to concede to the demands of unwavering faith”  - Billy Alsbrooks

How can you overcome self-limiting beliefs? How important is mindset to you? 

You are who you choose to be at the end of the day. Listening to your associates, friends, or even family in regards to who you are is a death sentence. The only limits are the ones you impose on yourself. Write down your goals everyday if you have to. Whenever you get sidetracked or lose your mindset, remember your goals to stay focused.

Do you have specific daily habits that you practice? If so, which ones?

Everyday I wake up while it’s still dark outside and I read or listen to inspirational and motivational videos. This gets me in the right attitude and ready to start my day and then I go to the gym right after. How you start your day is critical to how your day goes. Make sure to always stay positive and steer clear from negativity, the news, or other things that will drain your energy

If you had a piece of advice you could give your younger self, what would it be?

don’t marry her!!! Just kidding lol..

Best advice I could offer is don’t be afraid of change. Open your mind to the impossible. Pray for others more than you pray for yourself. Love your enemies even after they wrong you. Be kind to all people especially when they don’t deserve it… and last but not least never give up…

Anything else you would like to share that could be helpful as we create narratives about you and your brand?

The last thing I would like to say is, guy’s I’m normal! there’s nothing special about me…

I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in mouth, born from a rich family, or come from a life of privilege. I’m just like some of you reading this right now…the little guy. But I’m also proof that the little guy can come out on top. No matter where you are in your life you can make it! Keep your faith in yourself and faith in god and never stop working towards your dream no matter how small the step is each day.. I believe in you. So go out and get what’s yours..
