Vijay Eswaran delivered a speech at the 2016 World Economic Forum in Davos about having the right business mindset. He’s been in the multilevel marketing business since 1998 when he founded QI Group Ltd. In going about his business, Vijay Eswaran says business leaders need to have the mindset of not being a taker, but a giver and seeing what that business can do for others.
And at the heart of including spirituality in business, the concept is that if your workplace serves as a worship place where good permeates from, employees and clients will be treated right and you’ll build a better atmosphere.
Also, Eswaran said your business decisions aren’t necessarily about making the “right” one, but understanding what each decision will mean down the road and the subsequent decisions that come.
Vijay Eswaran has a great background of learning from others how to conduct his business in a beneficial way, especially his father who practiced sacrificing for others over taking all for himself.
Eswaran’s undergraduate education came from the London School of Economics, and just prior to completing his master’s he spent a year doing odd jobs in Europe.
After graduating from Southern Illinois University, he started going into multilevel marketing full-time. He joined the Cosway Group before breaking off from them and starting QI Group.

QI Group owns several subsidiaries including QI Asset Management, QI Lifestyle, QI University-Perak and their main ecommerce branch known as QNet. Just about anyone can start their own business with QNet, and Eswaran is pleased with every success story he hears about QNet’s effect across Asia.
The RYTHM Foundation is where Eswaran has encouraged giving back to poorer Asian neighborhoods and helping young children with health problems. Eswaran and his wife are also the co-chairs of the Vijayratnam Foundation.
Eswaran has written books about his life experiences and maintaining spiritualism in the workplace that include his bestseller “In The Sphere of Silence,” “On The Wings Of Thought,” “In The Thinking Zone” and “18 Stepping Stones.”
He attends the 6th Pravasi meetings frequently in India, and has won the NGI award at a meet in New York. He’s also been named in the top entrepreneur’s lists of Forbes Asia.
