The Head of Amrutam on Embracing the Path You’re Presented With
When has life dealt you a rogue hand, peers? While at the time it can feel unfair or pull you away from your current path, sometimes that seemingly random hand can lead you to great things.
Today’s guest Stuti Gupta discovered this when her father became ill and struggled to continue with his flailing ayurvedic healthcare company. Stuti returned to her home town with her brother and cared for both her father and the family business.
In this episode of Peers2Peers, powered by Shopify, the head of Amrutam shares how she evolved her father’s company from sinking to soaring, and why community can be a tool for healing.
Stuti Ashok Gupta:
It takes courage to go against the grain, especially when your family and culture has only done things a particular way. For today’s guest, she was the first in her family to go to university and even to leave her home town for new adventures.
But when a family member’s health declined, she returned home and created a new narrative. Now, she’s building one of India’s most well-known premium direct-to-consumer wellness and lifestyle brands, Amrutam.
In this episode of Peers2Peers, powered by Shopify, we hear from psychologist and architect Stuti Gupta on how she followed her dreams (whilst her peers were expected to marry and have children), why we have to tune into ourselves to know what’s right, and the importance of not relying only on external validation throughout your life.
Stuti Gupta is the Principal: Brand & Vision of Amrutam, one of India’s most well-known premium direct-to-consumer wellness and lifestyle brands. Founded by her father, Stuti and her brother Agnim revived the business and it now offers over 140 products – mainly hair and skincare products – to more than 100,000 customers. Before jumping into the family business, Stuti headed an NGO focused on children’s education and studied psychology and architecture. Stuti is also a mental health activist, a Founder of a chain of backpacker hostels, and a Forbes 30 Under 30 listee.
