Guilherme Paulus shared how he got the idea for his hotels and resorts, as well as how he would offer tours. He had met a deputy from the state that shared the idea with him about a tour agency, and the ideas began to turn in his head about what he would do to build his own business and begin calling this his lifelong passion.
The deputy proposed the idea to him while riding on a bus to work. This gentleman offered him the opportunity to work for him on the grounds while he would grow the business. Not having his own money to invest, he worked for the deputy’s tour agency, and he accepted the challenge fully.
