Guilherme Paulus: Building Brazil One Hotel At A Time

When it comes to glitz and glamour, no other entrepreneur can reach the milestones set by Brazilian hotelier Guilherme Paulus in the tour industry in Brazil. Apart from being a hotelier, Guilherme Paulus is an entrepreneur among the list of Board of Advisors at the CVC Brasil tour company and the GJP Hotels and Resorts.

The brand hotels and resorts have had a successful run in the Brazilian market bosting of several locations spread throughout the country. It is through the effort and fortitude of Guilherme Paulus that the brand has become internationally recognized as one of the largest tour companies in Latin America.

The concept of the brand hotels and resorts started developing while Guilherme Paulus was still at a tender age. At 24 years old, Mr. Paulus with the help of co-founder Vicente Cerchlari took the big step in 1972. Little did they know four decades later, they would be setting the pace for the tour industry in Latin America.

The idea was suggested during a ship trip but little thought was given to it. At the time, Mr. Paulus was working at Casa Faro. Fortunately, he took the challenge and the rest as they say is history.

But his rise to the top of the food chain has not been a walk in the park. Mr. Paulus’ journey started off as an intern for IBM. It is here that he managed to craft his skills into one of the most influential entrepreneurs in Brazil.

The GJP Hotels and Resorts increased its portfolio with operations of over 20 hotels and resorts. In Brazil, the hotels are in Maceio, Recife, Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. It is a vital part of the economy managing over 5,000 employees.

Some of his philanthropic works include noble causes such as the PIET project which offers educational opportunities to the disadvantaged teenagers of Brazil.

Ever since the conception of his first hotel back in 1995, a following of more than one hundred thousand have come through the doors of his luxurious hotels and resorts. Last year was a good one for the hotelier managing to accommodate 6 million tourists. With the future being bright, he still hopes to increase the growth of 2000 stores by 2020.

Shervin Pishevar Sees Silicon Valley Collapsing

Shervin Pishevar is back on social media and like always he has a lot to say. It took the early Uber investor 50 tweets and 21 hours to say everything he wanted to say about the economy and he only took a break for dinner. While he may no longer work at Investment company, the founder of the company still cares greatly about his former team and is happy to note that things have been going in a positive direction for the business. Nobody knows for sure why he made the decision to return to social media when he did after a several months long break, but he drew the attention of many followers.

He has a lot to say about the outlook of the economy in the United States and there isn’t much of it that sounds that good. While the world’s economy keeps evolving and changing, Shervin Pishevar sees much of the policy and economy of the United States as falling behind and unless they catch up the economy and state of the country may suffer greatly. He believes one of the major steps to counteract this will be the government causing less uncertainty when it comes to global trade deals.

One of the big things that Shervin Pishevar sees happening to the United States is the eventual collapse of Silicon Valley. What started out as a city of innovation has turned into more of a movement that the monopolies of the region are starting to lose their grip on. He predicts tech giants like Facebook and Apple will soon see their customers turn away in even bigger droves as they continue to lose their trust. Facebook has been experiencing a lot of problems lately relating to how user’s information was used in advertising.

The ability of Silicon Valley to keep up with innovation has been lacking lately. Shervin Pishevar believes that a lot of this has to do with these big companies not accepting the concept of borderline business as fast as they should. The movement of entrepreneurship has gone viral as an idea and there is nothing the giants can do to stop it.

OSI Industries – A Century of Progress

In 1907, Otto Kolschowsky immigrated to America and took up residence in Chicago. Within two years, Kolschowsky had opened a butcher shop catering to the German population of Chicago’s West Side.

By the end of the first World War in 1918, Otto had brought his two sons, Arthur and Harry, into the business, opened a secondary wholesale meats operation, and renamed the business Otto & Sons.

In 1955, Ray Kroc opened the first McDonald’s franchise in Des Plaines, Illinois. Otto & Son’s wholesale branch, long known for quality meats, was chosen as their supplier of hamburger patties. As McDonald’s grew, so did Otto & Sons.

By 1973, Otto & Sons were the main suppliers for McDonald restaurants in Illinois. To accommodate McDonald’s, their central customer, Otto & Sons created a state-of-the-art processing plant in West Chicago, Illinois. The plant used liquid nitrogen to flash freeze hamburger patties, enabling Otto & Sons to transport them over greater distances and have them arrive still fresh. Two years later, Otto & Sons was renamed OSI Industries. Two years after that, in 1977, OSI Industries opened a plant in West Jordan, Utah. Learn more about OSI at zoominfo.com

The OSI expansion continues, to Germany in the 70s, to Spain, Brazil, Taiwan, and Austria in the 80s, to Mexico, Philippines, China, Hungary, Poland, Australia, and the United Kingdom in the 90s.

In the meantime, OSI Industries expanded into new products, purchasing an Oakland, Iowa plant to produce bacon, sausage, and hot dogs. It expanded its poultry production capacity in Europe, Brazil, China, and the USA, fresh produce in China, beef production in Australia and Japan. In California, OSI Industries built a plant to process salsa, beans, and tofu products.

In 2011, OSI Industries opened a Culinary Innovation Center in Aurora, Illinois. Taking advantage of the giant consumer market in India, OSI now has a frozen vegetable processing facility in Madanapalle, India. By the time OSI had completed the changeover, they had gone from one of more than a hundred McDonald’s suppliers to one in four.

Rapidly approaching retirement, Chairman of the Board and CEO Sheldon Lavin, has won numerous awards for efficiency, innovation, environmental sustainability, and the introduction of cutting-edge technology.

Brian Torchin Pioneers Medical and Legal Staffing

Business owners often run into the difficult task of having to efficiently staff their businesses. Particularly, in the legal and medical fields this assignment can be especially stressful. Luckily, many companies have turned to HCRC Staffing with the intent to alleviate some of these issues. Learn more about Brian Torchin at postings.com

To begin, Brian Torchin attended the prestigious University of Delaware. He earned his Bachelor of Science undergraduate degree. Later he would attend the New York Chiropractic College earning his title as Licensed Chiropractor. Brian Torchin opened a chiropractic office in Philadelphia. As a business owner himself, he understood first- hand the importance of hiring qualified medical staff members to help his own practice run more smoothly. He was able to “pay it forward” to other business owners when he created his company HCRC Staffing in 2007. He also understood that legal firms also run into the same staffing difficulties. He ensured that HCRC Staffing could lend a hand here as well.

HCRC serves over 200 companies including hospitals, legal firms, and the healthcare

industries. Talented dentists, physician assistants, physical therapists, chiropractors, nurse practitioners, office management positions, billing, front desk reception, attorneys, paralegals, secretaries, and more can all be found under HCRC available to be of service. The best part, and a particular favorite of mine, is that once a business inquires about staffing personnel an email containing a bonafide candidate for their request is sent back within 72 hours. Interviews can even be conducted by HCRC for offices, and coaching services are readily available to owners regarding legalities, marketing, and staffing.

Brian Torchin appears to have accomplished so much including being featured in CNN, being coined as the single person responsible for finding the top chiropractors, providing links to his online blogs that host ideas, answers questions, and resolves staffing challenges that businesses may encounter.
