We had the good fortune of connecting with Dinah Sampson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dinah, what do you attribute your success to?
The most important factor for me is the name of my brand, Legacy. I chose the name because as a daughter of 2 immigrant parents leaving something for generations to come is important to me. Leaving a Legacy so that my children and childrens children have something’s to have gives me so much joy. My father was a businessman, not a successful one 😂but 1 thing about him, he never ever quit at trying. I get that from him

What should our readers know about your business?
Legacy Wellness Med Spa started in March 2020. It was something that just sort of “fell in my lap” if you will. We where offering post op care and body contouring at the time but when covid hit the thing that set us apart is we became mobile as well. That’s when it took off for us and we added IV hydration. At that time, my nurses where booked back to back for that service alone. The post op care was booming because everyone was at home and decided to have cosmetic surgeries so again with us being mobile, it set my business apart. I had surgeons in different states and countries referring us because what I didn’t know at the time is I became the first black woman in California to have a Med Spa (brick and mortar location). We’re very private and confidential and have dealt with everyone from A-list celebrities to the average working individual in every aspects of our business and no one knows. We respect everyone’s privacy here, we not here for the clout, I actually love transforming bodies. Was it hard? I’ve had my bumps and bruises in this. I started off with about 5 employees then came down to only 1 but now we’re getting them back and it was all because of the pandemic
What have I learned along the way? Everyone does not have your best interest in mind, family included unfortunately but don’t let that stop you from achieving your goals.
What do you want the world to know about me or my brand and story?
It’s not how you start it’s where finish that counts. If you knew me 8 years ago, you would have never told me that this is where I would be. I literally relied on that mustard seed faith because baaaabbbyyy if you knew me when 😂 you could not have told me that I would started a Med Spa and trucking company during the pandemic that is still going to this day. All God honey, all God

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Well I’m born and raised in LA so of course we doing all the best eateries, Serving Spoon in Inglewood (my comfort zone) Tracy’s Belizean Resturant on Western, of course the favorites like the bigger restaurants also. I would take them to a few cigar lounges in the area that I’m a member of, maybe Hollywood bowl for any concerts and it’s always a good brunch spot to go and of course a few day parties ( if you want me to name them let me know)

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I give God all the glory for this. I started right before the pandemic hit with my own location and then covid shut it all down. I was able to remain open because I’m a Medical Spa but clients where nervous about coming in. I did a lot of praying during that time and it came to my remembrance that Madame CJ Walker became a millionaire during the Spanish flu so I knew God could do the same, if not more, for me I have a very small circle. A few people who helped me, spoke into me during this whole process and to them, I’m truly grateful, Jemelia Cox, Porsche Mosley, Resheema Whittington and Antonio Brooks. They pushed me, prayed with me and wiped away my tears when I wanted to give up several times
