Many people are told that they have to look for a job. When it comes to being entrepreneurs, they are discouraged even. This is something that is not very good for the economy. Vijay Eswaran himself was told that the only way to become financially independent was to work a regular job and somehow save money.
Many people see that it is not that simple. There are so many things that could happen that could stop people from saving money. For instance, people who have been victims of the recent great recession know all too well that a better option is knowing how to market and build a business.
Vijay Eswaran himself has seen how successful he has become by dropping the mindset of needing to settle for a regular job and saving money. He has also seen how detrimental this mindset was and has therefore urged many who are in the position to teach to try to teach students and graduates how to market and bring in money for themselves so that they don’t have to worry when they are between jobs.
The marketing aspect requires a lot of skills and patience. A lot of people that try to get their business off the ground end up giving up because of the time it takes to make everything work.
Vijay has a lot of advice for people who decide that they want to go into business for themselves. One of the pieces of advice is that they have to change their mindset when it comes to business. One thing about being an employee is that it often fosters a mindset of what one can get out of it.
This is not the mindset that is going to make a company successful. A better mindset for an individual to have is what he can offer. This is one of the ways that Vijay has become a philanthropist and run a business that is based on philanthropy.
