We had the good fortune of connecting with Berty Morales and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Berty, have you ever found yourself in a spot where you had to decide whether to give up or keep going? How did you make the choice?
No, never give up on what you believe! The one thing I don’t do is let my insecurities get in the way. I just made a huge decision by shutting down my actual website and become and Insta-blogger. What is that? A blogger without a bl.og. I was a little scared at first because I wasn’t sure if my followers were going to like it and stop following me. Actually it was the best decision I made. The idea was welcomed with open arms, and I gained more followers. How crazy is that? The best advice I can give to anyone is, know what you want, and once you do fight for it. Don’t let your insecurities get in the way and if your dreams don’t scare you, that is because maybe those dreams aren’t big enough. Believe in yourself and in what you have to offer and never give up.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
From 8-5, Monday through Friday I work as an Admin for a very important construction, mechanical/maintenance company. Not to brag, but for 20 years, we have been in Fortunes top 100 as one of the best companies to work for.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
My bestie and I love uptown/downtown Dallas. You can always find us wondering the streets of Deep Ellum. We normally like to frequent Stirr, Vidorra, The Henry’s Miriam’s Latin Cuisine. We also like visiting the Dallas Museum too. I live in Addison so my personal favorite posts are: Gloria’s, Mesero, Sherlock’s, Yard House & Ra Sushi Bar.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My mother. She’s no longer here with me on earth. She passed away a year ago but I know that everything that I do, and the woman that I am today is all because of her. She thought to me that once I start something never to leave it halfway. Be dedicated and continue to work hard every single day. I know that she continues to cheer for me all the way from heaven.
