Poonam Sharma is an author and real estate developer who is pursuing the kind of success that has as much to do with the tone she sets for her life, as it does with the title she prints on her business card. She was raised in New York and has been featured in the New York Times, USA Today, Inc. magazine, India Abroad (India), EXAME (Brazil) and other print media, as well as on television outlets including NBC.
After graduating from the Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire, and earning her bachelorís degree in economics from Harvard College, she worked at a start-up, a nonprofit venture catalyst and a private equity firm, as well as in investment research and institutional sales in New York before earning her MBA from The Wharton School of Business at the University Of Pennsylvania, where she was selected as the keynote speaker on behalf of her MBA graduating class of 2007.
Currently based in Manhattan, Poonam splits her time between writing, public speaking, and a full-time career in Real Estate Development with a private developer. She has authored four books in both fiction and non-fiction which have been printed in three languages, seven editions, and four countries to date.
Her first non-fiction title was published during her senior year of college, and included a forward by Mayor Michael Bloomberg. For her second non-fiction book she spent a year traveling the world in search of entrepreneurs with inspiring stories they were willing to share. Her third and fourth books, both novels, were borne out of the years she spent living in New York and in Los Angeles in her twenties, and the wisdom which she likes to believe that she earned.
