DeW Dish with Minal Sampat

In Success by Minal Sampat

What is the best part of your job?

Through my work I am able to empower, teach, collaborate and build relationships with incredible people. It makes my heart happy to see others succeed!

Who has been the most influential woman in your life?

My mother is the most influential woman in my life. She grew up in a humble family and did not have an opportunity to receive formal education. Yet, she is the most kind, generous, brilliant woman I know. When I look at her life and everything she has had to face, I am in awe of her strength. I wish to one day be half the woman she is!

How do you measure your success?

I measure success by seeing others succeed. My goal for my work is to be able to provide tools for others to be successful. As long as I am able to be a part of the growth journey for others, I am successful… creating that kind of wealth, impact and abundance. Who is that person? Success is in the becoming of that.

What obstacles have you overcome in your career?

I started my first business at a young age. As a female entrepreneur in her 20s, I had to go through the trenches to simply be taken seriously and be “good enough” at my work. However, as I look back, I am thankful for that experience. Those obstacles helped me become the person I am today.

What do you do to turn around a bad day?

I reach out to a DeW. Seriously.

What is your guilty pleasure?

Dark chocolate!

What famous person living or dead would you like to have lunch with and what would you ask them?

I would love to have lunch with Ruth Bader Ginsburg! My question to her would be, “How did you find the strength to persevere?” I am amazed by her resilience and passion to build equality for women.

They are playing your theme song as you walk on stage. Name that tune!

“Umbrella” by Rihanna

“When the sun shines, we’ll shine together. Told you I’d be here forever. Said I’ll always be your friend. Took an oath, I’ma stick it out ’til the end. Now that it’s raining more than ever, know that we’ll still have each other. You can stand under my umbrella.”

What is your dream vacation?

Anywhere warm with people who make me laugh!
