Vijay Eswaran could very much be called an open-minded man who’s been willing to listen to others to find out how he could do things better. It’s shown itself by his building a billion-dollar company from almost nothing, and also using his revenue to build various foundations. But part of his goals in life are to learn how to be a better person who puts others ahead of self, and he’s gone on spiritual journeys to learn more about himself and to find inner peace. He’s written many books about what life and its journeys have taught him including his latest work, “Two Minutes from the Abyss.” This book captures the lessons he learned on a trip he took to Tibet.
What Vijay Eswaran is most known for doing is starting one of Asia’s top multilevel marketing companies known as QI Group Ltd. This company is based in Hong Kong but has offices reaching all over the world, and it’s sold all kinds of household and home improvement products, and customers can even purchase vacation packages to beach resorts through the company. Before he founded this company, Vijay Eswaran studied at the London School of Economics where he got his bachelor’s degree, and then spent a few years doing odd jobs before getting his MBA and figuring out that multilevel marketing was a business he could succeed in.
Vijay Eswaran also started a university known as QI University, and his latest great plan he revealed was a completely green housing project using solar and wind energy to generate power and transportation. His philanthropy includes giving to support groups for special needs areas and helping communities with disaster recoveries in his RYTHM Foundation and the Vijayratnam Foundation. He has spoken at business leadership and social activist summits including the World Economic Forum and the Global Indian Meet Summit.
