As the leader of the Eucatex brand, Flavio Maluf has become one of Brazil’s leading business leaders with an eye on creating his own business and keeping it at the highest levels of success in what is now the world’s fifth largest economy. The business abilities of Flavio Maluf are without question and he has now taken a few simple steps to explain to all those would be entrepreneurs out there what they can expect when they make the decision to start their own business.
Flavio Maluf believes many of those who would like to start their own business are under many misapprehensions about what the decision to begin a career as an entrepreneur means undertaking; the aspect of time is something that many do not understand as they feel starting their own business entails in terms of time and effort. When working for a company each individual employee has their own set hours each day, but when working as an entrepreneur the owner of a business must expect to be available almost 24 hours per day, seven days per week; vacations and time off for an entrepreneur often come with interruptions, according to Flavio Maluf.
As an expert in Brazilian business, Flavio Maluf also understands the difficulties that can be seen in the nation when it comes to starting a business as it has one of the longest waiting periods of any country in the world when it comes to opening a new business opportunity. Flavio Maluf explains the average starting time for any business in Brazil is more than 100 days and in the U.S. this waiting time is just five days.
Despite the difficulties that can be found in becoming an entrepreneur there are moments of success and ease that can be found in starting a business in the 21st century. Although many business opportunities can be expensive to begin with large levels of startup funding, in Flavio Maluf’s view there are still a few business opportunities that can be found with low initial overheads that are available for those without a large amount of initial capital.
