The international tourism market gave Guilherme Paulus the ability to tap into the billion-dollar industry. As his success grew in this sector, he increasingly wanted to expand the domestic travel in Brazil. He attributes part of his success to the ability to focus on more than just one market. Listening to what people want and what the market is demanding can lead you in a new direction, expanding your success.
Using his never-ending optimistic attitude and his adeptness of using technology to enhance his business, Paulus has become a productive entrepreneur with a knack for success. He has learned that to be a successful entrepreneur, you must listen to other people and use their knowledge to your benefit.
One direction Guilherme Paulus has implemented is having many travel stores, especially in malls. This brings in foot traffic. He used online resources to enhance his brick and mortar approach. Many times people want to sit down with a person and discuss their options. Then, they can use the computer and Google to do more research before making a final decision. Paulus understands this need and has capitalized on it.
Guilherme Paulus was a young man when he got the opportunity to use his entrepreneurial skills and tap into the international travel market. As he became more successful, he expanded into the domestic market and created his own hotel and resort locations. His success can be attributed to his listening skills and his ability to focus on more than one market at a time.
Any person who has had someone in their family, or someone they know, suffering from a sidelining mental illness, all-to-well know the pain they feel. Although productive in quiet ways, they invariably go on many interviews for jobs, only to be rebuffed, and although they walk around society, among others, their lives are not usually marked by inclusion. There are some organizations that work doggedly to help those that are suffering from mental illness to take their place in society and lead fuller lives.
Jeremy Goldstein, a graduate of Cornell, having achieved a B.A. and M.A. while there, and then having gone on to get his J.D. from New York School of Law, is one of those people working on behalf of the underrepresented. A lot of people in his position turn the other cheek, and carry on, concerned only with self-enrichment and chasing the dollar. Mr. Goldstein, however, has taken it upon himself to be involved with an organization called Fountain House.
Having started his own eponymous law firm in New York, which is also home to the first Fountain House, he is a part of an organization with seemingly unlimited options to help those with mental illness. Fountain House focuses on education, employment, health insurance and the persistent problem of homelessness among those who suffer from these illnesses. Homelessness is likely one of the worst, saddest byproducts of living with mental illness, yet it is very common as they struggle to hold jobs due to disabling conditions.
We are only dotted lines to each other and Jeremy Goldstein is doing an enormous amount of good by involving himself with advancing the agenda of Fountain House. Eventually this organization will likely reach the point where they are familiar with many of the people living with mental illness in the area in which they operate, and the varied different needs and abilities of each and every one of them. This is invaluable data as they likely represent a huge untapped resource in society and uncovering their value is necessary for all concerned parties.

Tim Duncan, chief executive of Talos Energy, had been working for months on a merger with failing company Stone Energy when the floodwaters of Hurricane Harvey wracked his neighborhood of Kingwood, Texas. Knowing that the flood could not stop all the progress he had seen, Tim rescued his family from the rising waters and found refuge with his parents in a safe, high and dry location in the city.
It was from his mother’s dining room table that Tim would get the $2.5 billion completed. It wouldn’t be until may that the Talos Energy’s stockholders would see a ticker change for the company, now showing under the listing “TALO.” Though Stone Energy was a failing entity, It came with a low-risk balance of $700 million in debt to $2.3 billion in assets. Since Stone Energy was a public company, the merger gave Tim the opportunity to make Talos a public entity as well without taking any money from the public. Transforming the company in this way was especially crucial for the city of Houston because of the damage Harvey left in its wake.
Equity shareholders of Mr. Duncan’s company can find peace of mind in his seemingly reckless decision making, by looking at his robust body of work. Much of what Tim does is lie in wait for other companies to fall by the wayside and scoop them up for pennies on the dollar. Once he has acquired ownership of these companies, as he did with Stone Energy, he begins drilling new wells in hopes of striking natural gas and oil. Talos Energy has a promising future in the Gulf of Mexico as the company has hit a 1,000 foot this layer of sandstone that has been soaked through with oil. The estimated amount is upward of 2 billion barrels, and the company expects that oil will begin to flow in roughly five years. Tim Duncan is not a man that stands down against adversity; he rises to the challenge every chance he can, and it often comes out benefitting those who choose to purchase an equity share in the companies Tim runs.
