Guilherme Paulus: The Optimist

Guilherme Paulus is the President of Board of Advisors, CVC Brasil and GJP Hotels and Resorts. He is also a global entrepreneur who began his career as an intern for IBM.

Guilherme Paulus is now one of the most influential businessmen in Brazil. He sat down for a interview to talk about how he came to be a successful hotelier. GJP Hotels and Resorts currently have over 20 hotels and resorts and employs over 5,000 people.

In order for Guilherme Paulus to start his business, he worked with a man named Carlos Vicente Cerchiari. Cerchiari invested and Paulus laid the groundwork and initial efforts. When choosing his first location, Paulus wanted a location that had a lot of movement, traffic and consistent flow of consumers. This mindset lead him to choosing outside an exit of movie theater. After four years of working with Carolos Cerchiari, he set out on his own solo ventures expanding his vision.

Guilherme Paulus’ vision started with gratitude, and he has continued to start every day with this same sentiment. Being overly optimistic and thankful every single day helps him and his vision come to fruition. Another habit is writing out his schedule daily. This practice is empowering, creates organization and makes him more productive. Bringing ideas to life is all about faith in his eyes and you have to see all ideas in practice to determine whether or not it is a good one.

A new trend that excited Guilherme Paulus is the use of technology. The speed of information allows his business to understand the needs of its customers quickly and in return they are able to act on them faster. This is the same with the new market trends. Technology is making it very exciting and shortening the distanced between changes and new information.
