When reflecting on the inception of QI Group, Dr. Vijay Eswaran cites his time as a college student as a turning point concerning his direction. In his estimation, QNET is the “bedrock of today’s QI Group,” which, in itself, is a result of his passion for network marketing. On first being introduced to the concept of network marketing, Dr. Eswaran was immediately skeptical regarding its practical use in a rapidly changing society. In fact, it would take a year of implementing sessions and presentations before his initial trepidation would be eased. Upon analyzing the process of network marketing, he began to understand its effectiveness and he soon carved out a variety of potentialities for the future. According to Dr. Eswaran, networking, as well as direct selling, will alleviate a number of the most prominent economic issues affecting the world, as it is rapidly evolving. Over the course of the next few decades, Dr. Vijay Eswaran predicts that artificial intelligence will completely replace people in the production and manufacturing industry, making for an increased need concerning entrepreneurship. Although he was admittedly spurred by his need to make money due to the fact that his financial situation was rather bleak at the time, the idea of creating entrepreneurs was the key element in his decision to create QI Group.
