Guilherme Paulus is a Brazilian entrepreneur who ventured in the tourism industry. It was his dream to become a successful businessman, and through excessive hard work, he was able to achieve his dreams. When he was still in his teenage years, the young Guilherme Paulus decided to become an intern for IBM, a tech company renowned for their innovative hardware products and software programs. His experiences as an intern helped him develop vital skills that he will be using someday when he finally enters the business sector. After his stint as an intern for IBM, he decided to establish his own business, and invited other people to become his business partner.
A wealthy local politician accepted his offer to become one of his business partners, and he helped fund the tour operator services firm that Guilherme Paulus wanted to develop. Together, they promoted the company and it started gaining traction as the country’s leading tour operator services firm. Four years after the establishment of their business, the politician decided to leave the company, leaving the management and operations to Guilherme Paulus alone. He used the knowledge he gained from being an intern to continue managing the company. In just a few years after his business partner left him, the company became the leading tour operator services firm in South America. In 2005, he decided to venture in another business, this time opening 15 locations across Brazil that will offer accommodation and leisure services. His hotel and resort chain attracted a huge amount of visitors, partly because he located his properties near airports and seaports. Added to it were the positive reviews that his property received from his visitors.
Today, Guilherme Paulus was named as the newest billionaire from Brazil. His net worth reached $1 billion, and representatives from Forbes verified the report. The Brazilian billionaire stated that one the reasons why his wealth surged is because of the recent hosting of the World Cup and the Olympic Games held in his home country. It drew a lot of tourists from all over the world, and his hotel and tour services firms benefited greatly from the influx of visitors.
