Brazil has long had the reputation of being one of the more troubled regions throughout Latin America. Although the country still struggles with high crime and serious corruption, with a per capita murder rate exceeding 30, representing one of the most murderous nations of the world, Brazil is a greatly varied country. Regions within Brazil, such as the upper-end districts of cities like Sao Paulo and Rio De Janeiro, are as nice as any place on Earth, featuring high-end luxury hotels, plot posh condominium buildings and some of the best shopping districts one will find anywhere on the planet.
Despite all of its problems, Brazil is most certainly on an upward trajectory as a nation. Over the last 30 years, the level of modernization throughout the country has been nothing short of astounding. And this is importantly reflected in the large number of high-end real estate developments that have been sprouting up throughout cities like Sao Paulo. Perhaps the flagship development in that city has been the Parque Cidade Jardim, a sprawling luxury development featuring nine condominium towers, four Class-A office buildings and a luxury shopping center featuring 180-stores, including Luis Vuitton, Reebok Academy and a Cinemark mega-theater.
But what may represent an even more important phenomenon than the final product of Parque Cidade Jardim itself is the process by which the development was completed. Jose Auriemo Neto, one of the most important real estate developers in the country, decided almost single-handedly to turn a blight-ridden and slum-infested piece of derelict property into one of the most grandiose developments that the country had ever seen.
The mere fact that Brazil is filled with men like Jose Auriemo Neto, who are willing to do what it takes to take the country into the 21st century as a first-world nation, is a strong suggestion that the future Brazil is in the right hands.
Todd Lubar is the president of TDL Global Ventures. Initially, in the year 1995, when he began his venture into real estate, he was not expecting that this was the career path he was willing to follow henceforth. He has maintained this path and has gained experience in the same, as well as finance until the year 2007. At this point, he felt as though it was necessary for him to diversify because of the many changes occurring, causing the market to be unpredictable. He got involved in an Automotive Scrap metal recycling business for instance.
In real estate, he takes a rather personal view of clients. He has the main objectives of ensuring that his clients get the homes they deserve. This sentimental nature of his dealings could be attributable to experiences he has had in the past. When he was still a student, he at one point took up a job as an assistant at a grocery store. This has always been memorable for him because, apparently, this is where he learned that value of money from. He, therefore, understands what kind of products and services his clients could be expecting from him. Furthermore, being a mortgage banker, it would not be logical for him to disregard the value pinned on any amount of money.
His thoughts about the factors that contribute to the success of a business (especially an entrepreneurship) are rather concise. Influence is the most important element. Therefore, when one is choosing the people they choose to surround themselves with, they should first determine whether they add value in terms of ideas. Influence one key factor that would change the perspective one has towards their business. An entrepreneur ought to remain focused and ensure they put in a lot of hard work to achieve the objectives they set for their business.
Todd Lubar greatly values communication. It is one of the factors that has kept his businesses running even when he was experiencing setbacks. Communication brings up many more ideas through the platforms it creates. He has experienced failures in the past but his enthusiasm has always kept him afloat.
