Romani entrepreneur Vladimír Michalčík: I always wanted to succeed in business
Vladimír Michalčík, our next guest on "Ten Minute Insight", actually embodies the saying that "Even if you hit rock bottom you can get back on your feet and change your life". He and his brother Roman have established two successful firms together with their friends.
One of those firms already has branches in four different countries producing Maguama. The beverage is a unique combination of 100 % Brazilian coffee with guarana root and a plant called maca.
Besides that product, they also offer their own cosmetics and perfumes with the stylish name GITANO. Michalčík has experienced both enormous decline and success in his life, as you will learn from the interview - make sure the English-language subtitles are turned on.
