The Business Blood
Though Dimple belongs to the well-known Lalwani business family, her success anecdote is entirely a different story. Post her schooling in New Delhi, she flew all the way to University of Manchester, UK to complete her graduation in the field of Accounting & Finance. Further finishing a few additional accounting courses from London, Dimple started exploring the realm of her passion. She first achieved an International Certification as a Nutrition & Health Consultant from Institute for Integrative Nutrition (New York, US), and then a Diploma in Sports Nutrition from Oxford Learning (UK).

When she launched Secret Dresser in 2016, the pre owned luxury fashion & accessories e-Commerce was an alien concept in India, and thus it was not surprising that her friends and family posted queries over her decision to start a pre owned sales portal. But, in fact, she was well-acquainted with the fact everybody suffers with their barely used old luxurious apparels so as she does, which occupy the shelves for years.

Today, being in pursuit of her PhD, Dimple as a woman entrepreneur perceives no invisible barriers above her. “I used to hear business talks in my family from my childhood. Though initially they were may be a little hesitant about me venturing out being a girl, but once I started doing really well, they were extremely happy to support & act as my pillars to go further,” asserts Dimple. Manifesting maturity beyond her young age, she is an excellent decision maker who lends her ears to everyone around her circle, though finally takes decisions based on her own intuition.
Spirituality Being the Way to Go
“The turning point of my life was actually when I got into meditation and started doing yoga. That helped me listen to myself & discover my potential. When you can listen to yourselves, the mental struggles are gone forever,” reminisces Dimple. She never thinks too much and complexes her mind, instead goes with the flow of the wind, which makes her decisions fresh & agile. She says, “The word weakness doesn’t exist in my dictionary. If I find that I can’t do a task in one way, I definitely find out another way to do it”. On the other hand, failing is just a way to learn & grow in life.
“Eating well and living a balanced life are the greatest strengths that anyone can ever have,” Dimple continues. An early riser, Dimple starts her day with meditation, which is followed by a morning walk and then 45 minutes of yoga. As she juggles between her offices, she doesn’t have any fixed office timing. A book lover, she suggests a couple of books to the budding entrepreneurs – The monk who sold his Ferrari By Robin Sharma, 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey, The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki. “Whenever I am off from the office, I make sure that I indulge in recreational activities, such as playing piano, music, swimming or anything that takes me away for a while,” she concludes.
