Being an investor in Brazil is not an easy task, it takes a hopeful soul with a dream they are not ready to go at any cost. At the end of the day, entrepreneurship in Brazil can be very rewarding. Among the people who have proved this statement right is Guilherme Paulus. The latter was born in 1949. No one foresaw his bright future. When he was of age, he went to the University where he studied Business Administration.

At the age of 20, he was done with his education, and he got an internship in IBM. Four years later, he met a politician who had the idea of expanding the tourism sector of the country. At this moment, Paulus did not have any funds to contribute as a partner. However, the politician proposed a deal where he could cater to the financial part on the condition that Paulus did the daily operations of the job. Being a wise individual, Guilherme Paulus accepted the deal.

Business was doing great until the politician decided to quit the business. This did not break the dream Guilherme Paulus had, he remained in CVC and kept developing it. Over the years, he has managed to build several stores in Brazil. He says that in the coming years, they hope to reach a target of 2000 stores. They have also worked on the online reception of the company to complement the offline stores.

As the adage goes, it is not wise to keep all your eggs in one basket. Guilherme Paulus agrees with this statement saying that you got to learn to diversify as an investor. Besides his CVC Company that is doing great, he has invested in the hospitality sector. The GJP Hotel has helped in improving the welfare of Brazil citizens by absorbing 5000 unemployed individuals.

Paulus says that he aims to see that his businesses keep improving the welfare of the community. The famous Forbes Magazine recognized his contribution to raising the GDP of Brazil. The citizens of the nation recognize him as one of the most influential individuals in the country and a role model to the young people.

Alastair Borthwick, a Scottish author and broadcaster, has written books on mountain climbing and World War II experiences as a foot soldier. Borthwick was born in 1913 in Rutherglen. However, he was raised in Troon during childhood and in Glasgow in his teens. At the age of 16, he worked as the “telephone boy” at Glasgow Evening Herald. He then moved over to Glasgow Weekly Herald where he was a writer and editor of the Children’s Page, Film Reviews, Readers’ Letters and Readers’ Queries, Women’s Page, and contributor to the front page. He also wrote for the “Open Air Page” section where he discovered the city’s love for outdoor activities and, more importantly in his career, rock climbing. Borthwick mentioned how obsessed he was about it, and his experiences mostly ended up in the paper. From this experience, Borthwick used it to write most of his material in Always a Little Further.

Many Glaswegians hitched-hiked north towards the West Highlands where they explore places like caves and form climbing clubs. Alastair Borthwick recorded the personalities of these hikers which became a supplement to his work Always a Little Further. With added humor, Borthwick used this work to portray the major social change that was arising in that period.

in 1934, Alastair Borthwick found that he had a talent for broadcasting. During an interview with BBC, Borthwick mentioned to James Fergusson that he was climbing over the weekend. Fergusson was curious, so he scheduled a 15-minute radio interview about Borthwick’s weekend climbing. During that radio interview, Fergusson observed that Borthwick had natural talent speaking over the radio. As he observed Borthwick’s actions, the way he spoke, and ethsiasum, he knew that it was the way to do it. It was then Borthwick would start a career in radio and television broadcasting up until 1995.

Alastair Borthwick also recorded his experiences in World War II as an Intelligence Officer to the 5th Seaforth Highlanders. He wrote a book titled Sans Peur which was republished in 1994.

After a long career, Borthwick only wishes to be remembered as a journeyman writer.
