Before he began managing businesses in the tourism industry, he went to IBM to become an intern. He wanted to learn more about the business world, and he took notes as his colleagues were leading him into the life inside the company. After he finished the internship, he decided to venture into different businesses, and at the age of 24, he had an idea to create a tour operator business. He needs to look for a business partner, and a Brazilian politician willingly listened to his business proposal. Guilherme Paulus got the interest of the Brazilian politician, and they became business partners. Together, they established the CVC Brasil Operadora e Agencia de Viagens S.A. in 1972, and it provided tour operator services to tourists visiting Brazil and its neighboring countries.
Four years after the company was established, his business partner decided to quit, leaving the business solely in his hands.

The political landscape in America is becoming more turbulent as time passes. Although a lot of people will attribute to differences in opinions there is far more contributing to the dissatisfaction of your average American. A lot of this dissatisfaction among Americans can be attributed to their feelings of being unheard by their representatives. Naturally, in a democracy, everyone cannot expect policy to go as they would prefer but dissatisfaction numbers have climbed to concerning numbers. Despite the fact that every American is entitled to a vote towards representatives that they prefer many feel that they lack any real choice. One of the issues causing such unhappiness is the obvious disproportional influence that rich Americans have over politics in America.
This issue has only been exasperated by controversial rulings by the Supreme Court. The most controversial of these rulings came in 2010 win the Supreme Court heard the case of Citizens United versus FEC. In this case, the Supreme Court came to the conclusion that speech and financial contributions amounted to the same thing. In layman’s terms, this meant that wealthy Americans are allowed to contribute as much money as they like to political representatives of their choice. Such a ruling gives wealthy Americans exceptional influence over politicians and the policies they vote for. With rulings like this in place, the access that poorer Americans have to do their politicians is completely dwarfed. Overall, this is a policy that favors those of the minority over the majority.
This ruling inspired the establishment of the political organization end Citizens United. This organization has made it their mission to not only counteract the issues created by this ruling but to ultimately have the ruling overturned. End Citizens United believes that the ruling is encouraging the corruption of public officials who now find it easier than ever to sell their vote. End Citizens United is passionate about leveling the playing field for honest politicians. End Citizens United intends to do so by raising money and an ethical grassroots effort that they contribute to the campaigns of politicians who reject and vote against the contribution of corrupting money.
