Brazil has been named among the top eight countries regarding the economy. Brazil has several entrepreneurs that contribute to this success. One of them is Ricardo Guimaraes, who is the president of the Banco BMG bank. Ricardo took over from the founder his grandfather Antonio Mourao Guimaraes. BMG bank is a private financial institution that deals with product exchange for companies as well as for individuals.


Since its beginning, the bank has been changing its line of business, in the 1980s, it dealt with providing financial assistance to retail and wholesale. Today it is a credit management financial institution under the leadership of Ricardo Guimaraes. Though Ricardo was born in a wealthy family, he did not take advantage of this. Instead, he worked hard and leveraged the family wealth to get where he is today.


Guimaraes is not only a business enthusiast but also a sports enthusiast. He has supported different soccer teams as well as other athletes. He has helped set aside investment funds for athletes including the Ricardo soccer br1 for football players. He has also been in the management of different teams as well.


Owing his success to the people of Belo Horizonte a town that he was born in, Ricardo feels a need always to give back to his roots. With an enormous responsibility to keep the memory of his grandfather positive, Ricardo has always made sure the bank is at the top. By helping the people in his town, he also helps keep the respect the people has always had for his father and grandfather. Having being awarded with several awards for his charity and being among the best in the business world, Ricardo never forgets to give thanks back to all his supporters.


Ricardo has received recognition from top delegates in Brazil including the secretary of state of government Danilo De Castro, municipal secretary of finance Jose Afonso da Silva Bicalho Beltran among many others. With such recognition and support from such people, Ricardo can reach out to many people.


Ricardo provides a perfect example of well off business people to follow. He shows it’s not about gaining the wealth and keeping all to yourself, it’s about sharing and appreciating the roots of origin.Ricardo has risen to where he is today through hardwork and scafrice.We wish him the best of luck.

Yeonmi Park’s Amazing Story of Success

March 29, 2016 - Author: steph


There are certain individuals who touch our souls and help us to understand more about struggles going on all throughout the world. Yeonmi Park is one of those individuals who has helped us to understand more about the struggles that are taking place in North Korea. Park has been able to shed a great deal of light on the human rights struggle that is taking place in this area of the world. Her writing has been inspiring and controversial as she tells it like it is. Even though the North Korean government has been threatening towards Yeonmi Park, she continues to stand by and promote her book.

Park lived a like unlike many other. From a very early age, she was forced to deal with issues that most individuals would never have to face. Dealing with starvation, repression, persecution, and more were all things that Yeonmi Park had to learn to face from an early age.

Park and her mother soon knew that it was time to flee the country. They had to cross the Gobi Desert in order to reach freedom. Park said on the NY Times she had to witness the horrible world of human trafficking during her escape of North Korea. There are some adjustment issues that Park has to go through now that she is living in the United States. Having food available at any time of the day is an amenity that we all take for granted. Park was not used to these changes, but quickly is learning to adjust. The future looks very bright for Yeonmi Park as she continues to stand for human rights all over the world.

Andy Wirth Leads Battle To Fight The Olympic Valley Incorporation

March 24, 2016 - Author: steph

According to the Reno Gazette-Journal, a big battle between Squaw Valley Ski Holdings LLC and the residents of the Olympic Valley area reached a head recently, as the residents who have been pushing for the incorporation of the Olympic Valley, have now withdrawn their petition. Squaw Valley Ski Holdings owns resorts in that area and the Placer County Board of Supervisors, a governing body from the Sacramento area, oversees the land’s activities and some locals wished to have it become local. The effort to incorporate the Olympic Valley got struck down by the Local Agency Formation Commission who said it wasn’t sustainable for the locals to hold.

Wirth is also breathing a sigh of relief to what he saw as a fiscally irresponsible move by those leading the incorporation effort, and has stated it would’ve lead to higher taxes and higher costs of living and local services. But thanks to both the incorporation battle ending as well as good ski weather coming in, the company resorts have been able to open. This after the last few years of the ongoing battle.

Andy Wirth, as seen on his page has been the CEO of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings LLC now since 2010. He’s been a longtime lover of skiing and testing the slopes and had a near fatal accident while sky diving at one time. It was his recuperation that eventually inspired him to start a foundation helping Navy SEAL individuals who were also going through difficult recuperation, called Wounded Warrior Project. The Foundation has so far raised over $14,000 in support according to Crowdrise, and many have expressed their gratitude to Wirth for starting the foundation.

Through the work Wirth has done, the Olympic Valley’s ski resorts have become one of the top rated skiing places in the world. He has also done work with local environmental and social causes to help make the Lake Tahoe area a better place to live. The Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority Board of Trustees has even awarded him the Chairman’s Outstanding Service Award according to his Wikipedia page.

Soros Lends A Hand (And a Great Deal Of Money) To Democratic Voter Initiative

March 15, 2016 - Author: steph


NY Times reported that the Democratic Party has recently begun a new voter initiative aimed primarily at a peculiar and oft overlooked demographic – the Latino immigrant vote. The program, termed by it’s proponents as a political outreach program, is spearheaded by a new large scale political action committee referred to as Immigrant Voters Win. The goal of the super PAC is to rally potential Latino immigrant voters to the democratic party by specifically focusing on Donald Trump’s incendiary states in regard to illegal immigration (building a wall, deporting all illegal immigrants, ect.). A major support of the super PAC initiative, a one Mr. Cristobal Alex of the Latino Victory Project described the political endeavor as a taking off of the proverbial gloves, stating also that the country rests on a precipice.

And he is right, but the Immigrant Voters Win initiative is taking off it’s gloves in more ways than just with it’s rhetoric, it’s also pulling in massive cash to back up it’s words and their potency as is evidenced by one of their largest financial backers -George Soros.

Know more:

Soros’ five million dollar contribute to the Immigrant Voters Win project as well as his eight million dollar contribution, split between two different Hillary Clinton campaign super PACs, marks the Hungarian billionaire’s stunning return back onto the political scene after nearly four years of relative silence. But the financial guru and democratic superhero, Soros, hasn’t called it quits after just two donations but has instead continued on to make yet another large scale donation, this time to the tune of five million dollars to a political campaign directed at Ohio, N. Carolina and Wisconsin aimed at repealing constraining voting legislation. So the obvious question arises – why is Mr. Soros suddenly so active after remaining silent for so long?

The answer came straight from the horses mouth, as it were, when Mr. Soros publicly stated that he found the intense anti immigration, anti immigrant, anti muslim rhetoric of the GOP front runners to be “deeply offensive.” He went on to say that such statements reflecting poorly, not just upon the Republican front runners, nor just on their party but on the United States of America as a whole and damaged the countries credibility and legitimacy upon the world stage. Mr. Soros concluded his public statement by resoundingly stating that there needed to be deft and serious consequences for the outrageous and unconscionable behavior that has been, in his opinion, the hallmark of the Republican Debates thus far.

Andy, a short form name for Andrew, has been the chief executive officer of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings since the year 2010. He and Squaw Valley Ski Holdings had to spend thousands of dollars to oppose a political plan by a group of incorporation backers. The backers had a hidden agenda behind incorporating Olympic Valley and northern winter iconic resorts. They too spent thousands of dollars trying to make the plea of the California Commission, but the commission did not see the plan as viable. Hence, they had to withdraw their plea. The backers were an addition to the difficult time that residents of Lake Tahoe offshore had been undergoing through due to the unfavorable weather conditions.

Reno Gazette-Journal posted an article concerning this divisive situation. According to Andy Wirth, the aftermath of this divisive fight would have been a fiscal tragedy to residents of Olympic Valley. Fortunately, the weather conditions are now favorable because winter came early boosting their ski businesses and resorts too. The residents are experiencing healing after the tragedies are now over, and Wirth thinks that this community can only work together if they have the love for the community at hand, not their interests. This is because the backers had not considered that incorporating Olympic Valley means creating room for negligence in the development of the transport network in the area and plowing of snow to improve the condition of the ski areas.

Squaw Valley Ski Holdings owns a couple of resorts under its management in Olympic Valley which Andy manages. He has had more than 15 years’ experience in running ski resorts and mountain resorts. Wirth has a reputation also from his grandfather who was named Wirth and was behind the coming up of policy to protect the wildlife animals.

Currently, he was challenged with a question that is the current development project in Olympic Valley would affect the wildlife. Andy in response said that the gondola is passing through a privately owned land but where it’s touching the wildlife area will not have an effect on the animals. Andy works tirelessly to develop Olympic Valley and as a union to the people, he with time will invite the residents of Olympic Valley to construct the gondola with him. He has a connection with the life of Olympic Valley, and he strongly interacted with Navy Seals who became his great friends.

Apart from working as the Squaw Valley Ski Holdings CEO, Wirth also works as the chairperson of the Lake Tahoe-Reno Airport Authority Board. He is trusted in the board, and he appointed two new officials to work in the company so that they can bring new ideas to the company. His association with the board is a good gesture for tourists looking forward to skiing in Olympic Valley.

George Soros: Concerned About A 2008 Repeat

March 8, 2016 - Author: steph

George Soros warned investors to be cautious over the coming months because the global markets are facing a crisis. Bloomberg picked these works of caution up in a recent article. Soros mentioned that the main problem right now is that China is having a hard time finding a new growth model and this is hurting the markets in the rest of the world. He then went on to say that the current situation that is occurring in the world is reminiscent of 2008. One of the main similarities is the struggle that the developing world is facing right now in creating positive interest rates.

The article then went on to say how much the world economy was depending on China. There was a major dip in Chinese equities in early January and it stopped trade fro the rest of the day. In addition, over the course of 2015, nearly 2.5 trillion dollars was taken from the global equity value. This hit to the economy is carrying over into the new year as global currency, commodity and stock markets are being hit hard during the first few weeks of the year. This is only adding to the concern over the Chinese yuan and the strength of the Chinese economy as China starts to shift to services and consumptions from manufacturing and investment.

Many investors around the world listen to George Soros very closely. Soros has had decades of success in the financial world and due to many risky bets, he has managed to create a net worth for himself of over 27 billion dollars. But Soros did not start out with lots of money. He was born to a jewish family in the 1930s. He grew up under Nazi occupation in Budapest, Hungary. When World War II was over, the communists took over and Soros’ family lived under communist rule. In 1947, Soros fled Hungary and went to London. He took of the work of a railroad porter and waiter and worked his way through the very highly esteemed London School of Economics. After graduating, Soros worked for a year in London. He then decided to emigrate to the United States and pursue his career there. For 2 decades, Soros worked for a handful of investment firms around New York City. This is how he gained his years of experience. It was on in the 1970s that Soros decided it was time to start his own firm.

After George Soros started his firm, Soros Fun Management, he saw success after success. He is one of the few investors who could bring in a return of over 30 percent on an annual basis.
