A winning attitude
When it comes to his attitude towards life and work, Guilherme Paulus is nothing but positive. He starts each day with gratitude for all that he has, and this mindset helps him look forward to what he has on Guilherme’s agenda to accomplish. In order to stay focused and empowered, he writes out his schedule for the week beforehand.
Guilherme Paulus finds that the most exhilarating part of any enterprise is the first step when you have to essentially take a leap of faith. In his own business ventures, he has relished those occasions when he has had to rely on his vision and instinct to make a move and then reaped the benefits.
If Guilherme Paulus could go back in time and give advice to his younger self, he would recommend seeking out the counsel of older, experienced entrepreneurs and simply listening to what they had to say. When it comes to how he spends his own money, he believes that it’s best to invest even if you aren’t putting down a lot.
