Vijay Eswaran is a businessman of Malaysian origin who is currently mostly based in China for his business activities. Currently, he is the Executive Chairman of the QI Group of Companies. He has a good educational background which was all crowned by the education he got from the London School of Economics and Political Science.
Vijay is just one of the many entrepreneurs who has had to go through so much to get a decent education. His, however, was an act of faith, perseverance, and determination. To fund his way through university, he worked as a taxi driver. Humble beginnings are probably one of the many reasons why he is so philosophical and determined to succeed.
He is the author of very many books. There is, however, one book that points out a lot showing why he succeeded in business. In his book, Two Minutes from the Abyss, he emphasizes that the only part of life that one can be sure of is the one they already have. In life, therefore, people ought to live every minute as though it were their last one.
This probably is one of the principles that made him very successful. In entrepreneurship, a window of opportunity would only knock once. The same door does not stay open for too long. There are very many entrepreneurs and they would work faster to actualize the opportunity. An entrepreneur should, therefore, maximize on any opportunity that they get and make the most returns out of it.
Vijay Eswaran is one of the wealthiest people in the world. He is actually the wealthiest person in Asia, with a worth of $500 million USD. All these have come from the efforts he has put into his work, and the many principles he works with. The 5 Cs for instance (care, clarity of vision, core values, commitment to growth, and creating a will to sacrifice) are principles that have kept him disciplined during his career life.
The knowledge he has acquired in business, such as to ensure that he has diversified his investments, keeps him ahead in the competitive business world.
