The goal of Jorge Moll study was to recognize the motivation within the members of specific group of people. The study chose soccer fans.


A method that was used to represent the involvement of a fan was giving them a device in which they would squeeze during an experimental trial. They were given an opportunity to give a form of a donation to individuals that were apart of three different groups. The same group as themselves, different group, or their own person. They saw that the subjects had a greater desire to want to give to individuals of the same group even if they were Anonymous and did not know them.

Since coming into office, President Donald Trump has been making rumblings about the North American Free Trade Agreement, commonly known as NAFTA. The President has suggested everything from getting rid of NAFTA completely to renegotiating key terms of the pact.It has industry leaders in various sectors of the economy on edge, including those in the gas, oil and exploration industries. That includes Talos Energy officials. Talos is based in Houston, Texas, and explores for oil in the Gulf of Mexico. Talos experts believe energy production will be the key that will keep NAFTA trading partners together.

The bottom line is this: Talos Energy and most energy companies think it’s in the best interests of all NAFTA parties to simply make no changes at all. Since NAFTA was enacted in 1994, the flow of energy between the three signatories – Canada, Mexico and the United States – has created a condition of maximum success for all. Especially in terms of energy, NAFTA has clearly been a win-win-win situation.That’s not to say the energy landscape hasn’t changed dramatically in the past decade. Energy production in the U.S. has soared, thanks to advances in hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling. America is now the world’s second largest producer of oil. It is among the top producers of natural gas.

While American energy booms, Mexico’s energy sector has been struggling. Even though Mexico is an oil-rich country, its output has actually gone down in recent years. Canada has been dealing with similar production problems. All this means that the U.S. enjoys a position of strength in the NAFTA arrangement as it is.The prospects for Mexico are looking up, however. In fact, Talos Energy recently partnered with Mexico and a British energy company to become the first foreign entity to drill for oil in Mexican territory in more than 80 years. Mexico nationalized its oil industry in 1938, but allowed Talos and it British partner in to explore for oil for the first time in 2017.If Mexico starts producing more oil, NAFTA – in its current form – becomes more important than ever.

A good entrepreneur has to think big. Jose Hawilla is someone that can attest for that. In the 80s he started what has become Brazil’s largest sports marketing company.

Jose Hawilla also believed that there are great strides in humble beginnings. People that start small have the ability to move to the top, but there are obstacles that are bound to be in their way. What good entrepreneurs do is continue to learn from their mistakes. Even if they start small and have a hard time in the beginning they still know that they have the ability to grow. A lot of what an entrepreneur can accomplish depends heavily on their attitude. If they start small and continue to think small they will not get very far. If they start small, however, and have dreams to grow they will usually find a way to make this happen. It simply takes time and effort to build a better business over time. People that are serious about the concept of entrepreneurship are going to look at every opportunity, even if it is an obstacle, as a chance to get better. Some people may not realize it, but even negative feedback is something that can serve as a reminder to put the customers first.


Jose started small with his sports marketing agency, but he knew one thing for sure in the early beginning. He knew that he had to put his clients first. He had to listen to the voices of the people that he was serving.

Have you ever wondered how CEO’s made it to where they are? What kind of lifestyle did they live prior to becoming a successful CEO or President of a company or establishment? What kind of parents raised such an individual to become the most successful? Well, I believe it does take quite a bit to raise an individual to become most successful. It takes parents who are dedicated to their children and parents who want nothing more than the best for their children. When children grow up, they are highly influenced by the adults around them, specifically their parents or people who have raised them. The positive influence that the children gains is then instilled in them and makes them who they are; the outcome is success.
