Guilherme Paulus Recounts His Rewards and Obstacles in the Brazilian Entrepreneurial World

The life of an entrepreneur in Brazil can be quite difficult since there are many obstacles and challenges that one must face and overcome. Conversely, being an investor in Brazil can be also quite lucrative. Lack of venture capital and heavy taxes from the government are among the factors that prevent entrepreneurs from achieving their dreams. However, a savvy entrepreneur like Guilherme Paulus has become so successful in his specialty in accommodations and tourism. Needless to say despite the numerous types of negative factors working against investors in Brazil, Guilherme Paulus came up with a sound strategy and at the right time in order to accomplish his business dreams.

Guilherme Paulus is one of the most prominent businessmen in Brazil. He studied business administration in the university and when he was just 20 years, he joined IBM as an intern. At 24 years, he met Carlos Vicente Cerchiari a local government official who had visions of expanding tourism in Brazil. Guilherme Paulus was interested in this idea but had no funds at the moment. Mr. Cerchiari proposed an investment contract to establish a company named CVC which is also known as Operadora e Agencia de Viagens CVC Tour Ltda anticipating that Guilherme would be the brains behind the companies daily operation. The duo opened their very first store in Sao Paulo and continued to be partners for 4 more years before Guilherme quit from its operations.

Guilherme took advantage of every opportunity that availed itself to become the head of tourism and accommodations in Brazil. The savvy entrepreneur came up with a plan that gave him the opportunity to listen to customers, different individuals and government agencies. He is indeed a sturdy believer in listening and has been many times quoted saying that the most important advice he can offer is the need to ask for advice, and always listening to elders as this way one will hear more.
