The story of the rise of Vijay Eswaran is a very interesting one. When he was in the UK studying at the London School of Economics, he had to drive a taxi, pick grapes and work as a laborer to make ends meet. He also got training and professional certification in multilevel marketing as another way to earn some income.
Now, 19 years after founding the multilevel marketing company the QI Group, Vijay Eswaran is one of the richest men in Asia. These days the one-time laborer and cab driver is said to have a net worth estimated to be in excess of $500 million dollars.
It’s an amazing story of how through proper training, hard work, vision and an effective marketing strategy, a child from a working class family was able to develop a net worth of over half a billion dollars.
The key was Vijay Eswaran learning about multilevel marketing and leading the QI Group to becoming one of the most successful companies in the industry. Learn more about Vijay Eswaran: http://www.wceforum.org/speakers/dato-sri-dr-vijay-eswaran/
