Guilherme Paulus is one of the most successful entrepreneurs in Brazil. He is the co-founder and chairman of CVC.
Guilherme’s journey as an entrepreneur began when he met Carlos Vicente Cerchiari while cruising in a ship. At that time, Carlos Vicente was a state deputy. Carlos Vicente and Guilherme Paulus became associates, and they started discussing business. Carlos expressed his interest in the tourism industry.
Carlos Vicente had the vision of coming up with a tourist agency that would be based in Santo Andre. Although the business proposal was viable, Guilherme did not have the required finances to establish such a business. Since that was the case, Guilherme and Carlos Vicente came to a consensus whereby Carlos would finance the business and Guilherme would cater for the workforce.
The Birth of CVC
Since Guilherme was interested in the partnership, he decided to take on Carlos Vicente’s offer. Eventually, they opened a store near a cinema. The location of the shop was ideal since many people populated the area. The partnership ended after four years. CVC provides a diverse portfolio of different travel products for families of low to high income levels. It also caters to domestic as well as international destinations. Over the years, this firm has provided clients with ground transportation, travel insurance, in addition to complementary services.
As a successful investor, Guilherme Paulus uses his time wisely by coming up with a weekly schedule that guides him on what he plans to do at a specific time. Additionally, Guilherme advises people to be passionate about their line of work. For instance, since he is the founder of GJP Hotels and Resorts, he often travels to different hotel destinations that are under the management of the GJP. While at the hotels, Guilherme takes time to converse with the clients at the hotels. In the process, he gets to learn more about his clients’ needs.
Guilherme Paulus advises investors to apply suitable investment strategies. Additionally, Guilherme also makes good use of web services such as Google. Furthermore, Guilherme acknowledges that Google is very resourceful.
