Dr. Vijay Eswaran is a busy man. An entrepreneur, author and international speaker, Dr. Eswaran serves as a co-founder and Executive Chairman for the multi-level marketing QI Group of Companies. In between speaking engagements and book signings Dr. Eswaran also manages to serve as Chairman and University Council for QIUP, Quest International University Perak. Despite such a full schedule, the man described by some to be a disruptive entrepreneur has won an army of awards and accolades. In a recent interview with IdeaMensch Dr. Eswaran sat down to talk QI and his own personal path to success.
According to Dr. Vijay Eswaran he was initially a skeptic of the QI network and was not totally sold about its effectiveness. However, after a year of research, presentations, and sessions he was won over by the concept of direct selling. A concept he was happy to discover was ultimately successful. “I analyzed the opportunity as an economist,” Dr. Eswaran explained, “and viewed it as a solution to current economic woes.”
One such solution that has been making headway in recent markets is entrepreneur making. The basic idea of a multi-level marketer like QI serves as a conglomerate of separate companies. At present QI operates telecommunication, travel, luxury products, and wellness as part of its services. Each branch under the banner of a different start-up run by an entrepreneur QI funds. In Dr. Eswaran’s mind the time for such strategy is now as technology is already changing the game.
“We are seeing factories close in the wake of computerization,” Dr. Eswaran stated, “Not because we are no longer producing but because we do not need real people.” Dr. Eswaran was referring to the concept of automation that is sweeping through traditional assembly lines. As we move into the future people like Dr. Eswaran believes success requires embracing that future.
