The moment his eyes blink open, Maninder Sachdeva pulls his glowing phone to his face and skims emails. He promptly sits up, slides to a small desk by his bed and starts his workday.
Sachdeva is a first-year analyst at JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s investment bank in London -- or more precisely, in an attic bedroom at his parents’ home, working on a laptop while also video blogging his 16-hour workday. He starts by responding to emails, jots a to-do list, calls a colleague. Then he puts on jeans.
