#131 - Connecting to Your Past and Your Future - with Leslie Feinzaig & Jerry Colonna
Joining Jerry on this episode of the Reboot Podcast is Leslie Feinzaig, Founder & CEO of the Female Founders Alliance, whose mission is to accelerate the success of venture-scale, women and non-binary founded companies. In this conversation, Leslie shares how attempting to lead and manage her team amongst the fallout of a global pandemic has led her to shift her thoughts to family in distant countries. The granddaughter of Holocaust refugees and a Costa Rican native, Leslie left her country of origin when greater opportunities opened up abroad. Now a naturalized citizen of the United States, Leslie admits to feeling out of place and unwanted in her adopted home. In hearing her story, Jerry reminds Leslie that in turbulent times, often the best gift we can give ourselves is to search for and connect to a greater sense of purpose. For Leslie, the question “Why do I do what I do?” leads her back to family —past, present and future. Jerry encourages Leslie to remember the sacrifices of her ancestors (as well as her own) and to draw on that connection as a source of strength and inspiration. In connecting to her past and holding her wishes for the future, Leslie comes to realize her purpose will see her through this challenging present. Leave us a review on Apple Podcasts!
