What does it take to find your path in the world? According to Vik, it is a simple, four-step process. Currently the chief executive officer of Silicon Valley-based 8x8, Inc., Verma is a frequent speaker who shares how four defining moments in his life have translated into this four-step process: (1) take a chance; (2) give your best, and the results will come; (3) be honest with yourself, and know your limitations; and (4) when you find your calling, go for it, and don’t let go.

Vik was featured in Florida Tech’s 60th Anniversary special edition book, “60 for 60: Celebrating Sixty Years of Alumni at Florida Institute of Technology.” Copies are available for purchase here.
