Vijay Eswaran’s Own Pursuit Of Happiness

If you’ve seen one of Will Smith’s masterpiece movies The Pursuit Of Happiness, you’ve seen the struggles of a man who had to endure tremendous hardships to make a living on the way to becoming an accomplished stock broker.

Another real life story of a man following hardships of his own to reach his goals is Vijay Eswaran. Eswaran is the CEO of QI Group, a direct selling and asset management company based in Malaysia but spread throughout much of Asia as well as Europe and the Middle East.

He had to raise much of the funds for the company out of his own pocket due to a lack of lenders at the time. And if that wasn’t enough, he also had to clear the company’s reputation as well as his own from false allegations made against them. But through it all he’s emerged as one of Asia’s top 50 richest entrepreneurs.

Eswaran came from a family that taught him several virtues growing up including serving others above self. He received his bachelor’s degree in 1984 from London’s School of Economics and his master’s in 1986 from Southern Illinois University, though he did also spend a year working odd jobs.

Eswaran also values philanthropy as part of QI Group’s mission and he is the Chairman of RYTHM Foundation. This philanthropic organization serves communities through partnerships with workers who help children with disabilities, food banks, disaster relief teams and educational resources. Eswaran also tries to help others through spiritualism and special dieting and meditation routines.

He’s drawn inspiration from Mahatma Gandhi who also followed spiritual principles for healthy living and moments of silence and listening. Eswaran also travels to speak at universities, business summits and economic gatherings including the World Economic Forum in Davos and the Global Indian Meet where he was given the New Global Indian award in 2012.
