Even though he began his career as a mere intern, Guilherme Paulus is now one of the most influential individuals in Brazil’s tourism sector. Today he owns CVC, one of the biggest tour operators in Brazil and is also the power behind GJP, a renowned chain of ultra-modern resorts spread across different parts of the said country. Thanks to his innovative leadership, Guilherme has made it possible for over five thousand people to have a source of income.
However, unlike most people who like taking credit for things that they shouldn’t, Guilherme Paulus is an incredibly honest person which is what sets him apart from most people in the tourism industry. This is because he openly reveals that the idea to start CVC wasn’t his but that of his former partner Carlos Vincente. During a recent interview, Guilherme Paulus revealed that it was Carlos who came up with the idea and being a natural born entrepreneur, he joined hands with him so they could bring the concept to life.
CVC began as a small store at the exit of a cinema on a little street. Its location was an added advantage as there was a flow of people and within no time, their small firm was slowly joining the big league. They worked together for four years before his partner left to venture into other areas and since then he has been solo. Even though he was left alone to run the business, Guilherme Paulus did not let this deter him, and he successfully steered CVC to incredible heights.
Guilherme Paulus’s day begins early in the morning, and he reveals that the first thing he does is thanking God before writing his weekly schedule. This he says, helps him make his day productive. When it comes to business trends, Paulus is excited by the efficiency technology has helped create in the business world. He adds on that by saying that thanks to tech, it is now possible for business owners and employees to identify and quickly attend to the needs of clientele, thereby meeting and exceeding their expectations. Guilherme Paulus says that visiting different locations where GJP hotels contribute significantly to him being productive as an entrepreneur as he gets an opportunity to interact with employees and clients, thereby identifying opportunities for growth.
