Vijay Eswaran is an innovator in the world of business who has enjoyed a global scale of success. He is the co-founder and Executive Chairman of the QI Group. His vision is what compelled he and his partners to create a hybrid business which marries direct sales with the internet.
Because of the worldwide web’s ability to penetrate nearly every corner of the globe, Eswaran and QI Group have achieved a spectacular level of success. Today they are involved in many business segments and their growth continues.
QI Group realized an early success in selling commemorative coins for the 2000 Olympics. After much debate amongst the partners, they settled upon this strategy which gave them the rights to sell to the Asian Pacific Rim.
Despite their late arrival into the race to sell Olympic commemorative coins, they achieved a tremendous slice of the market and finished in the top three in sales. This early success validated their business model and was the catapult to greater endeavors. Eswaran credits the winning combo of web sales and the human touch of direct selling.
Vijay Eswaran was convinced from the start that his destiny was not to toil for someone else’s wealth. The entrepreneur within him was very strong despite few advantages in the beginning of his journey. In fact, the odds of his succeeding were stacked against him. He had no business connections to speak of and no access to funding to get a start. Even worse, Asia was in the grip of a powerful recession making startups even more unlikely.
Perseverance has played a central role in the development of Vijay. This quality alone enabled him to continue until he met some like-minded partners. He credits his wife and her unwavering support as crucially important as well. He embraces the obstacles in his path and is reassured that he is still striving and moving forward. Without those obstacles, he considers himself to be stagnant.
