Lesley Wallerstein: Confidence, Adaptability, and Embracing Discomfort

In this episode, Steve Fretzin and Lesley Wallerstein discuss:

  • The relationship between creativity and crazy. 
  • Networking as an introvert.  
  • Understanding what you have to offer. 
  • Finding a networking system that works for you and your personality type. 


Key Takeaways:

  • It isn’t about what others can do, it’s about what you can do better than others. 
  • It takes confidence to go out on your own as a solo. You have to be willing to talk about yourself and put yourself out there or nobody will know what you do. 
  • You do have a value to add to the marketplace, but that value means nothing if people don’t know you. 
  • Get comfortable with feeling uncomfortable and it will get easier. 


“It was do or die. I realized the only way that I could make this work is if I open my mouth and start talking about what I do, because everybody else in the room is doing the same thing. My voice counts just as much as everybody else’s.” —  Lesley Wallerstein
