Meet Vivek

Monday8AM started out as a series of Monday morning emails to our team, on what we could do differently to become better leaders, better team players, better family members, better friends and better citizens. Through this blog, I hope to include many more people in these conversations. Why the name? Monday, since it is the start of the working week and 8 AM, so that we can think about these things before the day catches up with us.
