The clash of worlds in this book (yoga vs. finance) is too hilarious! I had to write it. Yoga values peace, tranquility, and humility, but finance rewards high energy, being proactive, and big mergers & acquisitions. In yoga, less is more. In finance, more is more. So, it was fun for me to explore how Allegra, the investment banker in my book, might try to do both at the same time.
I have experience on Wall Street working at Goldman Sachs and elsewhere in finance. I also have a background in yoga. So I had loads of personal experiences to mine for inspiration. The feedback I’ve been getting is that this book really captures both worlds, like a “The Devil Wears
Prada” of Wall Street.
