Jose Hawilla Runs Traffic

The U.S. is the recognized greatest place in the world to be an entrepreneur. But entrepreneurship finds success in many places throughout the world. Many of the most successful are family-run businesses. However, there are some entrepreneurs that prefer not to make what they do a family thing because they prefer that extra feeling of independence. Such individuals will also avoid working as leaders in large organizations because such organizations make them less independent and free to lead however they choose.

 

 

 

One of these independent intrepreneurs is Jose Hawilla, the owner and leader of Traffic. Traffic is one of the largest Brazilian sports marketing and advertising companies. Hawilla began his adult life as a field reporter for Bandeirantes radio in the 60s. He was very successful in the sports reporting world prior to his purchase of Traffic in 1982. He began with just bus advertising, but quickly elevated his company in the sports advertising world. By the late 80s he had the exclusive advertising rights in 25 stadiums. Today Traffic involves the broadcasting, sponsorship, and promotions of everything involving sports. For more details visit LinkedIn.

 

In recent years the once very popular Brazilian football scene has been less so. This is largely attributed to the decided downturn of the economy. But Hawilla is optimistic that it will soon rise in popularity again very soon. 2014’s world cup played a huge part in bringing televised sports back in Brazil. This is the case, says Hawilla because television has the ability to shape the future. In addition to his leadership of Traffic, Hawilla is also the chairman of the board of TV Tem, Rede Globo, Bom Dia, and Diario de Sao Paulo.

 

He has also shared his knowledge of entrepreneurship with the next generation of businesspeople. He loves to do what he can to help young businesspeople succeed in their endeavors.

You Will Not Believe What Shervin Pishevar Has Had To Say About Recent Events

Those who are not on Twitter are really missing out on some of the more interesting commentary from big thinkers and those who have proven themselves to be successful people. A lot of them congregate on Twitter to share some of those pearls of wisdom free of charge. One of those people is Shervin Pishevar.

The man first became famous when he made a nice fortune for himself as an early investor in Airbnb. Wouldn’t you like to have been following his advice before that stellar pick?! Now, Shervin Pishevar commentates on the modern day happenings in the economy on both a domestic and international level. He likes to talk about how he believes certain factors will play a role in other things that happen. For the most part, he has proven to be right a lot of the time.

One of the things that Shervin Pishevar just had to talk about was the recent decline in the stock market of around one-thousand points. He saw this happening just as everyone else did and wondered what could have facilitated it. He decided that it might have to do with the policies of the President. He started to dub what was going on “#TrumpDump”. This was his pithy way of saying that the President was at least partly responsible for what was taking place in the markets. It didn’t take long before what Shervin Pishevar had to say about this became a trending topic on Twitter for a while.

This was just the first Shervin Pishevar tweet in a series that was fifty tweets and twenty-one hours long. He was to talk about how Bitcoin was also not a safe investment in his view. He also stated that there is going to be a lot of inflation in the economy for the foreseeable future. He tied that up with the idea that China is going to become the real superpower in the world in the coming decades.

All of these tweets were something that people could debate amongst themselves, but it is hard to deny that Shervin Pishevar is a man who knows a thing or two about the economy. His opinions should be given some weight.
