There are very few people we encounter on our journey and consider “life altering”. For me personally, Lesly has been the one to give me “Tough Love” at the exact right moments in my career and set me in a direction I did not believe was possible. Above all, Lesly has the natural ability to enable us to believe in something greater than ourselves.
— Eli Potter, Product & Technology Leader
