For many people who finish college, their first thought is how they can show potential employers their skills and land a job. But one man believes it’s time to change that line of thinking from looking for a job to actually creating one.
That man is Vijay Eswaran who did so himself when he founded QI Group in Hong Kong. Eswaran says these job candidates should look at how they can immediately get their own business setup and move in that direction. He says more can be done if people are willing to take more risks instead of waiting. Learn more about Vijay Eswaran: http://interview.net/vijay-eswaran/ and https://twitter.com/vjayeswaran?lang=en
Vijay Eswaran was born in Malaysia and was inspired to start his own business by his father Vijayratnam. He also was taught generosity and spiritual practices from him as well. Eswaran went to the London School of Economics to get his bachelor’s degree, and later went to Southern Illinois University to complete an MBA.
He had been a part time consultant when he began looking at multilevel marketing opportunities on the side, and then in 1998 he headed back to Malaysia when he had an opportunity to do it full-time. Read more: Dato Vijay Eswaran: From taxi driver to worth over $500 million dollars
He and another entrepreneur, Joseph Bismarck began their own company in Hong Kong, QI Group and soon after had investments in Asian vacation homes and resorts through QI Asset Management. Their e-commerce and major sales come through QNet. All QNet products are marketed through representatives who can then recruit others to QI’s program.
Vijay Eswaran is a philanthropist who was named one of Forbes Asia’s Heroes of Philanthropy for his work with RYTHM Foundation.
He talks not only about that, but also on how making personal sacrifices and having spiritual observances throughout the day can lead to an even happier work environment in his book “In The Sphere Of Silence.”
Eswaran also speaks frequently at the World Economic Forum annually, and travels to many universities around the world to talk on issues. Even right now, he’s helping rollout the plans for a completely green campus for QI University-Perak.
