Vijay Eswaran And The QI Group: Turning Challenges Into Opportunities

When Vijay Eswaran founded the QI Group in the Philippines in 1998, he faced many challenges. He had no experience running his own multilevel marketing company. Multilevel marketing was viewed by many as an unsavory business model. He didn’t have a lot of resources. And Asia was in an economic slump.

But Vijay Eswaran has never been afraid of a challenge. He had picked grapes and worked as a laborer to survive while attending the London School of Economics. He had risen from a working class background in Penang, Malaysia where he was born. Eswaran saw building the QI Group as an opportunity not a challenge.

Eswaran set about immediately recruiting staff and turning them into expert, determined, independent marketing representatives. He told them his goal, pointed out the rewards and showed them his plan.

He motivated his team and made them excited about going into large cities and remote villages and offering the affordably priced, high-quality products the QI Group had to offer.

Within 10 years there was a great demand for QI Group products, the company was generating almost a billion dollars a year in revenue and the marketing representatives were able to improve the quality of life for themselves, their families and their communities. Learn more about Vijay Eswaran: and
