Summer can be one of the hardest seasons to maintain a work-life balance, according to 39% of respondents in a recent consumer behavior study by Zelle. That is especially true for someone like Mindy Kaling who is building a media empire while single parenting two children.

In the near two decades since Kaling got her big break as Kelly Kapoor in the The Office, she’s created several hit television series including The Mindy Project and most recently, The Sex Lives of College Girls; launched her own production company—Kaling International; written three books and starred in several blockbuster films such as Ocean’s 8 and A Wrinkle In Time. She’s now hard at work finalizing the upcoming third season of Never Have I Ever, co-writing Legally Blonde 3 and starring as the voice of Velma in a new adaption of Scooby-Doo.

The media mogul celebrated a partnership with the digital payment platform at Pendry West Hollywood last month, where she spoke with Forbes for this exclusive interview.

I did The Mindy Project for 117 episodes and I loved the makeup, and the hair and wearing high heels. But because I was pregnant and I gave birth in September 2020, everything changed—I was happy, for the first time, to be wearing flip-flops and athleisure. It’s been fun though now getting super dressed up. [Laughs] I almost get too dressed up when I’m just meeting friends for dinner.
