Guilherme Paulus is a Brazilian entrepreneur and hotelier who is in leadership positions at two companies he founded. He has a Brazilian tour company called CVC Brasil and a chain of hotels named GJP Hotels and Resorts. He started out his professional career as an intern at IBM and is now a highly influential businessman in two industries.
GJP Hotels and Resorts now has more than 20 hotels and resorts located in the most popular vacation spots in Brazil. This includes Rio de Janeiro, Recife, Maceió, São Paulo, and Salvador. It was in 1995 that Guilherme Paulus opened his first hotel and since that time nearly 100,000 people have stayed at one of his properties.
He says that the idea of starting a Brazilian tour company didn’t start with him. Guilherme Paulus was on a boat trip when he met one of Brazil’s state deputies, Carlos Vicente Cerchiari. Carlos was interested in opening a tour company in the city he was living in at the time, Santo André. As Guilherme was young and didn’t have a lot of money to invest in a new business they came to an agreement where Carlos would supply the money to get this new venture off the ground. Guilherme did all the groundwork and sweat equity.
He wanted the perfect spot to open the first location. Guilherme Paulus wanted a spot where there was a lot of foot traffic and activity. He found the ideal spot near the exit of a movie theater which supplied plenty of passersby. Carlos and Guilherme were business partners for four years and from that point on Guilherme was on his own. His business then began to really expand and it grew far larger than he had ever dared hope.
Guilherme Paulus says that he begins each day giving thanks for all the opportunities he has had. This helps him look forward to how the day will unfold. He writes out a weekly schedule that he follows on a daily basis as this helps him feel organized and productive as he goes about his business.
