If you have ever booked a tour to Latin America, you have likely heard of a travel agency called CVC. This giant of the travel industry came from very humble beginnings. When the company first opened up shop in Sao Paulo in 1972, it was just another of many Latin American tourist agencies. But now, they have gradually become the number one tourism agency in the entire region with an annual income of over 5.2 billion.
This agency was founded by a man named Guilherme Paulus. When the business first opened, Mr. Paulus was technically a co-owner of CVC, along with a certain Brazilian politician. However, when his partner left the business, Guilherme Paulus had no choice but to take the wheel himself. There can be no doubt that he steered their ship in the right direction.
Guilherme Paulus started his career before the age of twenty as a clerk at IBM. After rising to greatness as the de facto leader of CVC, he initiated a partnership with a global private equity firm called the Carlyle Group. In 2009, a deal was brokered which gave the Carlyle Group an interest in the company while providing it with an excellent source of capital for its future. Guilherme Paulus founded a new company called GJP Hotels and Resorts, which now operates quite a few hotels and resorts in Brazil with plans to build many more. On top of all this, Mr. Paulus has also been involved in some charitable work. One of these is the PIET project, which aims at inspiring young people to pursue careers in the tourism industry. Another program that he has helped to support is the Alfasol program, whose goals are similar.
CVC does not plan to stop expanding anytime soon. They have made a lot of progress particularly in areas with low population (meaning less than sixty thousand people). This is an area of the tourism market that is underdeveloped in Latin America, but CVC is working hard to bridge the gap. This will surely bring some much needed income for the people who live in these isolated and (for the most part) impoverished towns.

Randal Nardone did some outstanding things over the past two decades as the founder of the Fortress fund, which he started in 1998. Fortress was sold to Softbank, during December 2017 for $3.3 billion in cash. Fortress specializes in alternative investments.
Randal Nardone did his undergraduate studies at the University of Connecticut, where he got a BA degree. He went on to graduate from Boston University of Law, where he received a JD degree. He currently is a board member for Fortress Credit Corporation, Fortress Investment Group LLC, Springleaf Financial Holdings LLC, Springleaf Finance Inc., Springleaf REIT Inc., Eurocastle Investment Limited, Alea Group Holdings Bermuda Ltd., and Florida East Coast Holdings Corp.
Randal Nardone played a vital role in negotiations of the Softbank acquisition of Fortress, which included getting Softbank to agree to forgo control over the daily operations of the fund in order to be able to make the acquisition. That was the cost of entry into this level of Wall Street investing sophistication and Softbank was willing to pay it. Another interesting factor in this major acquisition deal was that it was the first time in history that a publicly-traded, U.S.-based investment fund was taken off the market to go private.
The motivation behind Softbank’s decision to take Fortress private probably includes many potential reasons. Certainly one of the motivators was the less restrictive investment regulation that goes along with being a private company that is no longer subject to public disclosure.
From all accounts on Bloomberg, the Wall Street Journal, and elsewhere, it is clear that one of the main attractions for Softbank was the ability to acquire a “brain trust” of top Wall Street investment professionals that operate at the highest level of the financial sophistication. Softbank probably wants advice and help on the many acquisitions it is making for its $100 billion Vision Fund. Now, on the top of that Softbank advisory list, is one the world’s most expert investors, Randal Nardone. Forbes says that his net worth is around $2 billion. He is currently 557 on the list of the world’s top billionaires. After Softbank’s acquisition of Fortress, Randal Nardone remains a principal, a board member, and the CEO.

One of the things that often gets a bad rap is procrastination. When people think about procrastination, they always think about someone putting off something that is very important for the next period of time. Often times, this happens to the point when that task never gets done. Even some of the most productive people may procrastinate at one point or another. When people think about procrastination, it is often in a negative light. However, Upwork has a different view of procrastination. According to Upwork, procrastination is not always a bad thing. In fact, it can get people to think about the task they are planning to do.
One thing that Upwork says about procrastination is that it can bring forth a very effective and powerful productivity technique. This type of technique is summed up in the idea that 80% of a person’s value comes from 20% of the tasks they complete. In this case, it is important for the person to think about the activity he has been putting off. If it is something that is low in value, then not only should he put it off, but he should also deleted. This is one of the best things about re-evaluating and procrastinating to an extent.
When it comes to something that one does not want to do but needs to get done, then the person should get it done. As a matter of fact, it is not wise to procrastinate on something that is more of a chore. Once the person gets that chore done, then he is going to feel a great sense of relief. When one procrastinates on a certain undesired but important task, it could actually make it harder to get started because of the increased dread that comes with it. Starting on something is the hardest part of getting something done. There’s no need to add to the difficulty.
