We can read so many business and inspirational books lately, and most of them, if not all, try to pander towards the interest of the readers or just want to let the readers know what they want to hear. These books are great and educational, but you don’t get much out of them. Fortunately, the book from Vijay Eswaran attempts to veer away from the conventional, from the mediocre and from the obvious, and it tries to offer tips and insight on things that not many try to address.
Insight to Life
In life, we are made to introspect. We are made to look into the past, hopefully to learn enough of it to not repeat our mistakes. The book of Vijay Eswaran is the same thing and it uses the platform of stories to share some of the insight that liberates us and that frees us from the feeling of entrapment that we seem to feel in our life. Vijay’s insight into this topic through his book Two Minutes from The Abyss is also a compilation of stories that inspire the best out of people.
Knowing the philosophy and beliefs of Mr.Vijay is also a source of insight to how he was able to come up with his ideas in his book. One of the key insight and philosophy he believes in is to always use fear as a motivator for growth. No one grows from stagnation, and only through stressors that one can understand the real value of change.

Ricardo Tosto is one of the best lawyers in Brazil today, and he was recently featured in several reports about the law that concerns the regularization of overseas assets. Leite, Tosto and Barros, a law firm that was co-founded by Ricardo Tosto, stated that the new law would bring positive changes in Brazil. They stated that with the new law being enacted, Brazilian lawyers would have a chance to interact with foreign lawyers, and it would increase their knowledge about how laws are being applied overseas. The law numbered 13,254, is also referred to as a project that would ensure the repatriation of overseas assets, and according to Ricardo Tosto, he is looking forward to taking advantage of the said law.
Brazilians who are living overseas would benefit greatly from this new law. Ricardo Tosto explained that the repatriation of overseas assets owned by Brazilian citizens would allow for a joint effort to create documentation and necessary actions that would redirect the resources that they own. It would also allow Brazilian lawyers to become more aware of different laws that are being applied on an international level. Because of this new law, many Brazilians are seeing that their resources would be brought back to Brazil without the hassles because the lawyers will be working on something that would give them the edge.
Another advantage of this new law would be the bridging of information between Brazil and foreign countries. Gil Vicente Gama of the Nelson William Advogados and Associates affirms what Ricardo Tosto has stated. He believes that a new bridge between the local and international lawyers would be necessary, and it would help them develop further, and their knowledge about laws would become upgraded. Gil Vicente Gama also added that the possibly technical partnerships that would arise after the implementation of the new law would be able to facilitate certain processes and procedures that are known to be complicated. It would ease out this process, and the deals between Brazil and the foreign country where the resource originated would be called out completely, giving the country a healthy relationship with its foreign counterparts.

The Leadership That Shaped Bradesco
Studies have long shown that the best way to handle business is to make sure that the presidency of the company is sturdy and resilient. Doing so enables the workforce to avoid the unnecessary stress that comes with bad leadership. When this happens, there’s increased productivity in the work of the people. There’s an increased resilience in the workforce that can withstand the challenges of running a business according to g1.globo.com. Most of the sources of stress today can even be prevented if the leadership also understands where the company is leading. That can only be proven through experience. With the experience of the people behind Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi, it’s safe to say that Mr. Cappi’s actions share this vision.
One of the many decisions that really made a difference in the career of Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi is the fact that he led in the decision to purchase HSBC in the Brazil branch. With such decision, he was able to grow Bradesco to a brand that is outstanding both in the national level and international arena.

Such educational background would also be a formative part of his career in the future, and that might have been the reason right now why he’s one of the most esteemed executives today. One of the many things, too, that Mr. Cappi has initiated in the operations of Bradesco is when he established rituals in his company that would be able to let the workforce share their word out in the most solemn, productive way possible.
It is also a good avenue for the workforce to vocalize their ideas and to formally plan out a force of action that would highly benefit the company’s growth. Truly, there’s little wonder that he is known by many right now to be the most reliable successor to Lazaro Brandao.
