Copa Star: An Exquisite Hospital With Exceptional Services

Posted on March 02, 2017

Hospitals can be boring because of having to deal with empty ceilings, the smell of medicine, and a small bed. However, Copa Star Hospital seems to have revolutionized the notion, adding a dash of opulence to the field.

Copa Star is located in Figueiredo Magalhaes, next to Copacabana beach, in a twenty-one thousand meters built area. The hospital is an A-1 luxury hotel, offering top-notch services throughout Brazil. Rede D’Or Sao Luiz, an independent operator of hospitals, was responsible for coming up with the design and are aiming at expanding the model countrywide.

The only time we get to see art collection is when we visit a gallery store. Paintings from Yutaka, a Japanese artist, however, decorate Copa Star’s corridors. Also, the hospital has a separate attachment where nurses can comfortably move patients on stretchers, and we can finally bid traffic farewell.

The hospital is remarkably cultivated and full of splendor. Every room gives you a five-star hotel feeling, unlike typical hospitals where you feel sicker once you enter the room. Every detail was thought through carefully, from the entrance to the décor around you. A restaurant under the guidance of Chef Steve Moreillion operates at the hospital.

To beat the ether smell, Copa Star has invested in woody tones, sending a sweet aroma everywhere. Also, they use natural lighting, how beautiful is it to view the sunset or sunrise from your bed! The lighting offers a state of serenity within the hospital, doing away with strong artificial light.

The project, which started in 2013, used more than 400 million Reais. Rede D’Or Sao Luiz intends to expand the project to other major centers within the country, focusing on cities like Sao Paulo and Brasilia.

About Copa Star

Surgeries including cardiology and neurology will also be available. The hospital will mostly serve people from Sao Paulo bridge area.

Mike Baur the Entrepreneur Leader

Posted on August 09, 2016

When considering Mike Baur ended up helping dozens of different start ups gain their footing, you see that he started off in a very strange position in the beginning of his career.

Since he was a child, Mike Baur was fascinated with the financial and banking industry. This culminated in his education at the University of Rochester in New York where he received an MBA. Immediately afterwards, he moved back home to start climbing the ladder of the private banking industry in Switzerland. After two decades, he found himself in an executive board position at one of the most prestigious private Swiss banks.

Eventually, however, Mike Baur felt the need to leave that industry. He left it, instead, for a fresh start in giving new start ups a leg up on their competitors by creating the Swiss Start Up Factory.

Mike Baur, along with two other co-founders, use the Swiss Start Up Factory to help new companies, particularly in the digital sector, by giving them expert advice. They aid them in financial matters, such as bookkeeping and payroll management. In addition, the leaders of the team dispense general business wisdom that the new companies so direly need.

One of the most important aspects given to start ups who apply and are accepted into the Swiss Start Up Factory is the entrepreneurial and financial networks that are opened up. Each of the founders and leading professionals of the organization offer their own contacts and clients for the new start ups to enjoy and use to grow their business.

The reason Mike Baur left his influential position at the leading private bank was because he felt he was in a unique position that allowed him to better the world. He believes that Switzerland is the most innovative country on the planet, but also recognizes the fact that there is a distinct lack of executive ability among the new companies that start up. As a result, there are many revolutionary ideas floating in the air, but no one to act on those ideas and turn them into flourishing businesses.

Not only is Mike Baur occupied with the Swiss Start Up Factory, because he has recently partnered with Fintech Accelerator Fusion. This new partner is similar in ideology to the Swiss Start Up Factory but focuses on a different portion of the population in the area. But partnering up, the two organizations cover all.

How to Include Sweaters in Transitional Clothing

Posted on March 20, 2016

Spring may be right around the corner, but there are days that feel like it is still the middle of winter. This unpredictable weather makes choosing the right outfit more complicated because you neither want to dress too warmly nor dress too springy.

One of the best ways to dress properly for varied types of weather is to incorporate sweaters into your outfits. There are many sweater options available that won’t leave your wallet empty. There is a great article at Buzzfeed that gives examples of sweaters that are both cozy and cheap.

Adding a few sweater styles to your wardrobe can help you create stylish and good-looking outfits that are perfect for transitional dressing at this time of year.

Types of sweaters to consider would be a simple pull-over sweater that can be worn layered over a collared shirt, a long cardigan sweater in a neutral color like black or tan to pair with both skirts and pants, and a lightweight sweater to be worn on its own or with a camisole underneath for an extra layer of warmth, if necessary. These three types of sweaters will extend your wardrobe options until the last day of winter finally surrenders to spring.

In addition to a few sweaters, you should also add at least a couple pair of shoes to your wardrobe that are appropriate for both spring, and the last remaining days of winter. JustFab is an online retailer that carries shoes, handbags, jewelry, and much more.

Sanjay Shah and the Solo Capital Wealth Strategy

Posted on March 09, 2016

Anyone who is involved in the world of finance, investments, or retirement these days fully understands how difficult it can be to even identify the right path to growing their wealth. Once you have taken the time to truly understand investments and get a better handle on what you want to do then you absolutely need to find the right partner that can help guide you (and protect you) along the way.

The importance of any investments firm is first and foremost to get the markets. It doesn’t matter what your secondary skills and talents are if you don’t know just how to operate within investments. The investments world can be a difficult one to play in, and if you find someone who understands the market just like a top professional can then you already know you are on the right track. That being said, you also want to be sure that you find someone who understands people as much as they understand finance.

In any situation that you find yourself dealing with someone in the service industry you need to find someone who knows how to remain calm under pressure. When someone has dealt with significant losses, sees the temptation of excess returns at the risk of more risk, or even just someone who wants to follow up with you and reassure you that they are keeping their eyes on your financial goals as much as (or more than) you do yourself, you know that you have found someone you can trust to guide you in the correct direction and truly be able to work with for the long haul.

Another reason why you want to be sure to have someone who gets investments and also gets people is just because the nature of the business. If there is a realistic chance that you will be able to see additional gains with a new fund or opportunity, then perhaps it does make sense to explore that area. Or you might want to stay the course in a short term period of time where your investments take a hit. However, when you see significant volatility and you feel that you need to make a decision, the last thing that you want to do is speak with someone who either doesn’t understand the markets or who doesn’t understand how to communicate an investment strategy to you (if not both).

The reason that so many individuals and investors are turning to Sanjay Shah and his wealth management strategy employed by Solo Capital is only because of the fact that both he and his organization have continued to employ both the idea of understanding wealth and also understanding people. His success will continue to grow just like the wealth of his clients as a result.
