Within five years there were 12 brick and mortar Jingdong locations.

When the SARS epidemic hit China in 2003, many people, including Liu’s staff and customers, remained at home. The financial impact of SARS on his stores led Liu to change his business model.

Telling the Truth with the Whistleblower Program

The SEC Whistleblower Program was put in place by Congress and provides incentives to people who have information on violations or potential violations of the Federal Securities Act. The Whistleblower program was created within the Dodd-Frank Act and Paul E. Kanjorski a retired congressman who was involved in the creation of the act points out that it has been very useful in preventing fraudulent dealings and also arresting those involved in malpractices.

It did this by increasing foot soldiers in the fight against these violations. If an employee notes discrepancies in the books they can report these under the Whistleblower program so that they can be investigated. The whistleblower will then be awarded a sum of money as long as the information they provided led to an actionable outcome. The program also protects whistleblowers from the companies and/or individuals they report on.

He sees the SEC Whistleblower program as capable of making people more willing to report illegal activities perpetrated by corporations or individuals within corporations. Today a lot of corporations ask employees to sign agreements and have protocols that stop them from making company wrongdoing public. They cannot share the non-ethical and potentially illegal activities the company is involved in because they are under the impression that to do so is to open themselves to charges or a lawsuit.

The agreements use sweeping legalese to ensure employees do not make complaints about sexual harassment, violation of securities legislation, violation of environmental among others. Since most people do not ask for legal counsel when signing employment contracts they are not made aware that such agreements are not enforceable. Every person has a right to report violations of the law that they notice and no one can ask them not to do it legally.

When making a report of wrongdoing it is important for the whistleblower to remember that the information presented must be legally obtained or better still to employ the services of a SEC Whistleblower attorney. If for instance, an accountant notices discrepancies in the books they can report this but if they break into a managers office to steal the information, it is not actionable as it was obtained illegally. When recording a telephone conversation one should be aware of the laws governing information collected in this way in the state they are in. This is because in states like Connecticut for a recording to be admissible both parties must give consent.

Why Carlos Cerchiari Trusted Guilherme Paulus

Talented people need only one chance to demonstrate their ineptness to the world. Often, people are lured to more charismatic, less talented individuals who waste multiple opportunities on bad ideas. Occasionally, someone like Carlos Cerchiari meets someone like Guilherme Paulus, and it changes the world.

In an unlikely beginning, Cerchiari first met Paulus while on a shipping trip. They started talking about their jobs and were Paulus wanted to go in his career, as he was only 24 at the time. Eventually, the conversation turned toward Cerchiari’s openness to the idea of opening a tourist agency where he lived.

As the conversation progressed, Cerchiari noticed Paulus’s interest and asked if he wanted to join the venture. As a 24-year-old, Guilherme Paulus had nothing to bring to the company other than his hardworking attitude and willingness to accept the challenge. Still, Cerchiari saw something special within young Paulus.

After thinking it over for a few days, Paulus decided that he wanted to join Cerchiari’s venture. With Cerchiari’s money, they opened the first CVC tourist agency on a little street Santo Andre. In only four years, Cerchiari saw such a change in Paulus; he felt comfortable moving on to other ventures, leaving Guilherme Paulus with controlling interest in CVC.

By the early 90s, Paulus’s reputation as an entrepreneur grew internationally. In 1995, he founded GJP Hotels and Resorts. Working in conjunction with CVC, GJP built more than 20 properties in Maceio, Recife, Salvador, Sao Paulo, and Rio de Janeiro.

Though GJP also earned international recognition, many people are still impressed by CVC’s success. In recent interviews, Guilherme Paulus talked about how his career wouldn’t have happened if Carlos Cerchiari never gave him the opportunity to co-found CVC Brasil Operadora.

That belief gave Paulus the courage and daringness to start GJP Hotels and Resorts; it’s the reason he’s an internationally renowned hotelier and entrepreneur. Even in his older age, he continues working closely with both companies, pushing his limitations and experimenting with new techniques and strategies.
