Writing With a South American Flare

Brazilian author Jamie Garcia Dias is a fictional writer with over twenty books to his credit. He has received many awards and is considered one of Brazil’s best authors. He is forty five years old and has hit his stride in the field of literature.

As a young child, born in Rio de Janeiro, Dias was interested in literature and writing, and even to a lesser extent blogging. His father was an accomplished writer. So at the early age of fifteen, he began writing his first book. With many struggles and obstacles, he perservered and continued writing. These struggles only strengthened his resolve to become a published writer.

Even though his first passion was writing he did have a career in education. These two passions were closely aligned. He taught at a prep school for students interested in the study of literature and writing. He later became president of that the prep school and this allowed him to help others reach their goals as well.

Although he credits his father for being his inspiration on Twitter, there are several authors who helped shape him as an author. Jorge Amado, was one such author. Beloved for his classics such as Captains of the Sands, and Donna Flo and Her Two Husbands, his whimsical spin on everyday life combined with his sharp wit endeared him to millions. Writing with the flare and able to relate to everyday people helped him reach a larger audience. Another author, Paulo Coelho, the best selling Brazilian author of all time, was another novelist who had a huge impact on Dias and his writing style. Some of his best known works are The Alchemist and By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept. Dias had many role models whom he could model. He considers himself very fortunate to have the career he has today and is thankful for the help he received along his journey.

Organo Gold Offers Common Products With A Unique ingredient

The Richmond, British Columbia-based company, Organo Gold has turned the art of selling products people consume on a daily basis into a multi-million dollar industry thanks to a unique ingredient contained in each and every item it sells.

All of Organo Gold’s products contain Ganoderma, a substance found in the Ganoderma mushroom, which is primarily indigenous to Asia and grows in wooden trees and logs. Ganoderma is considered a powerful, ancient Chinese herb that has been used in that nation’s traditional medicine practices for centuries.

Organo Gold offers consumers the opportunity to purchase products like a variety of coffees and teas, brewing cups, grape seed oil, spore powder, mycelium and personal care items such as soap and toothpaste through direct sales. In 2013, Organo Gold turned more than $213 million in revenues.

Success in business or in marketing products containing Ganoderma is nothing new to Organo Gold’s founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Bernardo Chua, and his career stats are evident of that. The Philippines-born Chua has Chinese ancestry and knew, from an early age, the wonders of Ganoderma. He first found success selling the product as an executive for the Philippines-based corporation Gano Excel. It was there, Chua mastered the art of direct sales.

Chua, however, always yearned to introduce Ganoderma to the western world, a point he talked about in many public speeches, and once he founded Organo Gold in 2008, began an aggressive direct sales campaign. Seven years later, the company maintains operations in forty-four countries, spread out across six continents; has risen to become the fifty-fifth largest direct sales company in the world and made Chua one of the most successful Asian-born businessmen in history.

Chua’s remarkable success has been awarded. Organo Gold has been bestowed Direct Sales Company of the Year on five separate occasions. In addition, Chua received the prestigious personal accolade, the Dangel ng Bayan Award for Business and Industry from the Joint Twenty-Second Annual People’s Choice and National Consumers Quality Awards in 2014.
