Although Brazil is one of the countries that have faced the biggest challenges as far as entrepreneurship is concerned, there are still some entrepreneurs in the country who have done a great job. Brazil is ranked among the last countries in the world as far as ease of starting and running of a business is concerned. The main challenges that face the country include high venture capital bureaucracy and heavy taxation. Many business people who had dreams of running enterprises have abandoned the dream after being frustrated by the challenges. There are however others who have made sure that despite the challenges that have been faced in the country, they will never let their dreams to die. One such person is Guilherme Paulus, a prominent businessman in the country.
Guilherme Paulus is an entrepreneur who deals with tour business. In 1972, he created a company known as CVC, alongside his friend Carlos Vicente. The idea was brought by Vicente although it is Paulus who implemented it. Vicente left after four years, and Guilherme Paulus had to do everything alone. He built the company with challenges until his dreams were accomplished. Today, CVC is the biggest tour company in Brazil and Latin America. It is also one of the businesses that have helped Brazil to have a developed tourism sector. He has gone ahead and created another business known as GJP Hotels and resorts. He has created an enabling environment for tourist visiting the country to find world-class accommodation services.
Guilherme Paulus took the chance he found in the accommodation and tourism sector in Brazil, and he has never let go. He has concentrated with this line of business to the extent that he has remained innovative throughout the journey. At no point has he ever tried any other way for the time he was in the industry. CVC is now a multi-billion business. He recently sold 63 percent stake of the company to an American company known as Carlyle Group. He is now ready to build the company further and ensure that there is enough transformation of the business in the country.

“Freedom Checks” were the big phenomena this year on the investing websites and other media outlets. Upon their dramatic introduction, they were first met with skepticism from average investors and financial pundits. The ads for “Freedom Checks” were extremely sensational and seemed too good to be true. Financial advisor and renowned geologist Matt Badiali is featured in one of these ads holding a check that looks like a government check and it is worth over one=hundred grand. Although the ads did make it appears this was a sort of get rich quick hoax, this is a truly legitimate investment opportunity that is just misunderstood by even seasoned investors.
“Freedom Checks” are the payouts from “Master Limited Partnerships” to their stakeholders. One of the criteria to be labeled an MLP is that the company must pay ninety percent of their profits to people who invest in their company. This may seem like a disadvantage, but they are not required to pay federal income taxes, which means the company has higher profits anyway. An investor in an Master Limited Partnership has a unique advantage in that he does not have to pay any income taxes on his distributions he is paid from the MLP. This is different than regular dividend-paying stocks, where investors pay taxes on dividends. The only taxes the investor pays are the capital gains tax for selling the shares when they decide to liquidate their position This all adds up to a higher rate of return for an investor.
It an individual is dying to get in on the action and start getting their fair share of “Freedom Checks”, they simply need to have a brokerage account and a small starting capital. Some of these companies sell on the major exchanges for as little as ten dollars. An investor can buy shares in an MLP like the way they would purchase shares in any other company. There are currently over five-hundred companies that fit the criteria to be labeled a “Master Limited Partnership”. Once an investor chooses an investment, they will start to receive “Freedom Checks” like the way they would receive a dividend payment.
Paul Mampilly knows a lot about investing. The good news is that nearly one-third of Americans have invested in stocks. The other two-thirds of Americans, who are financially aware of things, are tucking their money away in savings accounts. Then there are those who cannot afford to save a penny.
For those wanting to invest, risk is a major factor that stands in their way. Add to that the fact that millions of Americans have no clue about how or what to invest in. Paul Mampilly is an individual who can share some tips and wisdom in the matter for those looking to step into the ring.
1. If new to the field of stock investing, place focus on innovative trends and technology. Such a trend may be electrical vehicles. With far fewer moving parts and a light carbon footprint, electric cars should appeal to more people.
2. Genetic testing is another field that is likely to take off in the future. Precision medicine will lead to more effective ways of diagnosing. Scientists are getting closer and closer to understanding each individual’s genetic code. This will help eliminate the guesswork from deciding the best medicine for a patient’s treatment once they crack those codes.
3. More and more people will begin to look for venues that serve healthy foods. Food delivering systems are gaining popularity for people who want to eat healthy in their homes. With the right food delivered, eating at home can become an alternative to eating out in restaurants.
