Creating a name for oneself is vitally important in any business role. When one has the backing of the government, it becomes even easier. Such is the current situation with Eucatex CEO Flavio Maluf, who is actively working with the Brazilian government to help spread word of mouth about the importance of sustainability and eco-friendly products. Looking at the Costa Rican business model and eco-tourism, it is abundantly clear that such educationally advocacy programs do in fact work and work well. On top of that, the opinion of a country’s safety changes drastically when one becomes associated with ecotourism and friendly protectionary acts such as saving the rainforest. Not to mention that by relocating some of his company’s locations to areas deemed in need of jobs by the government, Flavio Maluf if creating livelihoods and infrastructure to parts of the world which would not otherwise have them. At the same time, this lessens the desire of clear-cutters to over-harvest the forest. Because why ruin the forest when you can instead have a job which you can pass down to your son and his son harvesting renewable Eucalyptus trees which are non-toxic and have healing medicinal qualities? Read this article of Flavio Maluf at Business and Economics.
Speaking of which, Eucatex has introduced a line of paints and varnishes which are based from natural Eucalyptus oil instead of toxic chemicals that when inhaled can cause serious bronchial and other health problems. They also offer Eucalyptus wood flooring, acoustic boards, insulation boards, general MDF construction boards, and much more.
All of this is thanks to Flavio’s grandfather, Salim, following his dream of becoming a successful entrepreneur. In 1951 he bought the largest sawmill in South America, named “Sawmill Americano”, and by 1965 was shipping 100 tons at a time both locally and to Europe where the wood was seen as more exotic.

Fortress Investment Group recently acquired a significant and iconic building in Palm Beach on Worth Avenue. A Madden Family Associates partnership ended up selling the Tiffany & Co. building on 259 Worth Avenue for the price of $20 million. The 16,374 square feet location fetched $1,221 per square food. The building has been on the market for 2 years, being put up for sale in late 2016, the listing agent expecting it to sell for $40 million, double the amount that it ended up selling for.
Worth Avenue is considered among the most expensive retail streets in the United States. The location was built back in 1950, and it is referred to as the Tiffany & Co. building due to the fact that the company has been leasing space on the second floor since 1991, for a total of 27 years. The luxury brand is the main tenant and is leasing 11,081 square feet, having invested millions in upgrades, which includes marble floors, the clock above the entrance, and steel doors. The building ended up selling because of family planning reasons and market conditions.
Fortress Investment Group pointed out that the building will maintain its current tenants, but plans are to create an upscale office space on the second floor at some point in the future. Greg Matus of Franklin Street, a commercial brokerage firm based in Tampa, handled both sides of the sales, stating that it was a rare opportunity for Fortress Investment Group to purchase a premier asset on one of the most famous retails streets on the planet.

The purchase did not affect Fortress operations however, as due to regulations, SoftBank opted to let the firm operate independently.

Michael Hagele recently commented on his favorite hobby: mountain biking. Michael Hagele is not a professional mountain biker, but he does it so much and is so good at it that he is capable of giving great advice to anyone about the subject. The Bro Talk interviewed Michael Hagele and received some pointers about the subject. Read more about Michael Hagele at Inspirery.
He said that nobody should be intimidated by mountain biking because there are different skill levels. If you are a beginner, you can still mountain bike. Of course, there is some fast, hardcore biking that higher-ability people do. Individuals can gradually work their way up to being higher-ability. Everyone who decides to mountain bike should really think hard about their mental and physical well-beings. If a person doesn’t want to work his or her way up to a higher level, he or she does not have to. If someone feels comfortable staying on one level that is lower, there is nothing wrong with that. You don’t have to prove anything—you just have to have fun.
There are a number of ways that a person can start with mountain biking. One thing that a person can do is attend a camp for mountain bike skills. It is a pretty good idea to attend a camp because you may learn things about mountain biking that you never knew, before. Some of these things that you learn could be crucial to your safety, or crucial when it comes to proper technique. Not having the proper technique can lead to a person wasting his or her time by not doing things the right way and never understanding why. It is also a good idea because of the fact that mountain biking is a thing that is potentially dangerous, and being watched by experienced people may decrease the chance of getting seriously injured.
