Infrastructure is a taxing undertaking that demands steadfast commitment and adequate execution. Moreover, if carried out, infrastructure holds the potential to reshape an economy’s landscape. It’s for this reason why countries are champing at the bit to institute change using infrastructure. Unfortunately, some nations are ill-equipped when it comes to addressing the challenges that accompany infrastructure demands. Brazil is one such country. In 2017, the National Confederation of Industry revealed that Brazil’s ceased upwards of 2,800 construction projects. The lion’s share of these interrupted jobs were basic sanitation facilities. Similarly, highway, airport, railway, and waterway projects seldom make it to completion either.
This troubling truth has aroused concern within Brazil’s finance industry specialists. Felipe Montoro Jens is one such expert. Versed in the project management realm, Jens is well aware of the havoc that unfinished infrastructure can wreak on an economy. In hopes of steering Brazil clear of unfavorable outcome, Jens devised some solutions to Brazil’s ongoing struggles. According to Felipe MontoroJens, Brazil’s approach to micro-planning needs considerable fine-tuning. Moreover, Jens fears that Brazil’s construction workers are inept. With that said, Jens maintains that it would be savvy to institute mandatory training.
Internal control and contractual agreements are other underbellies that Felipe Montoro Jens touched on, but micro-planning and unskilled workers are far and away the biggest flaws in Brazil’s infrastructure systems. Once implemented, Jens believes that his suggestions will breed favorable results. However, if Brazil continues down their path of infrastructure destruction, the already critical state of their economy will crash and burn. Another man of keen insight, José Augusto Fernandes argues that history will only continue to repeat itself if Brazil fails to grasp that their current operations are unsound. If Brazil wishes to make it out of this economic turmoil unscathed, an imminent change in infrastructure is necessary.

Some people think big. Others actually prepare to do big. Such is the case with GreenSky Credit CEO David Zalik. When reading a rags-to-riches story, few understand the mentality of what it really takes.
GreenSky is known for financially backing contractors, healthcare providers and retail companies with billions of dollars in lending power. The art of making this happen sounds good on paper, but finding investors to back your idea, not so much.
David Zalikhad to go through all of the bumps and disappointments in business just like every other rising entrepreneur. Most people like to criticize the failures of billionaires. However, GreenSky Credit CEO Zalik does not let such talk slow him down. There will always be doers and dreamers. To him, it is a challenge that needs to be overcome.
GreenSky Credit works with businesses and individuals who are credit worthy, financially secure and tired of the credit card mentality of today’s world. Offering free interest in the beginning and attractive payment plans. Care is taken to reflect the same thought process as their financial lenders.
Poor timing and bad investments taught Zalik how to better maneuver through the tough times due to his unstoppable zeal for winning. Zalik could have given up as the real estate bubble burst in 2009and threw him into one failure after another. However, you recognize the strength of a company when looking at where they have been.
Today, GreenSky Credit combines the toolsof investment, financing, technology and marketing to build a better mousetrap than what is offered through financial institutions. The result is a win-win situation for consumers, businesses and GreenSky Credit.
In April of 2018, GreenSky filed IPO paperwork with the SEC, a move that gives many companies the jitters in today’s financial climate. David Zalik does not even bat at eye.
