In this exciting episode, I had the pleasure of talking to Shikha Mittal who is a Sr.Dir, Product Marketing at VMware. We discussed the book - The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. She shared her thoughts on why she chose to read this book, on pursuing her personal legend, and what the words of wisdom derived from the book mean to her in life and work.
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho is a powerful novel that takes the reader on a beautiful; journey. The protagonist is a young Spanish shepherd embarking on a quest for treasure in lands far and near. While the book is fiction, it imparts wisdom on why one should follow their dreams despite facing failures.
