Vijay Eswaran Shares the Secrets to His Success

Vijay Eswaran went from driving a taxi to having a net worth of over 500 million dollars. His success comes from the founding of an MLM. MLMs offer their sales force commission for their own sales and for the sales of people they brought into the company.

This marketing strategy not only improved, Eswaran’s life but the lives of the thousands of people he employs.

In August of this year, Eswaran shared the secrets to his success with the French Tribune.

You cannot allow preconceived notions to stand in your way. Like many, he had been taught to believe that the only way to achieve stability and financial security was by holding down a traditional job with regular hours. He advises that if your belief system is holding you back from realizing your true potential abandon it.

Build a company not just for your own enrichment, but for the enrichment of your employees as well. Vijay Eswaran formed his company at the behest of employees who had worked with him at a company that ultimately went out of business.

There is a symbiotic relationship between employer and employees. Greater gains for employees translates into greater gains for the employer.

Set aside time during the day for quiet contemplation. This time can be used to the betterment of your business. It is not time spent in idleness, but rather it is time spent refining your business strategy, envisioning your company’s future, and recording ideas. Setting aside quiet time is a common practice among successful people. Learn more about Vijay Eswaran: http://interview.net/vijay-eswaran/

Becoming an “overnight success” takes years not hours. Hackneyed as it sounds you must never give up striving to reach your goals. According to Ideamench, Vijay Eswaran likens people who stop short of realizing their business goals to the 80-90% of climbers who attempt the ascent of Mount Everest only to quit half-way up.

Building a productive workforce requires unwavering honesty when dealing with your employees.

Since you don’t know how much time you have been alotted on this Earth don’t waste a second of it. Begin pursuing your dreams now and don’t allow yourself to be hobbled by the past.
