“Yes, and…” with Jennifer Nasta Zefutie

Jennifer Nasta Zefutie

This week, I’m talking to Jennifer Nasta Zefutie, who has accomplished what many people think is impossible: she’s a working actress, and the co-founder and co-producing artistic director of the Pegasus Theatre Company in central New Jersey.

Jennifer has one of the most interesting (and unlikely) creative journeys you’re likely to hear, and our wide-ranging conversation also covered loss aversion, why failure is essential, defining success for ourselves, and the theatrical improv rule of “Yes, and…,” both as a creative principle and a way of life.

Our greatest artists, our greatest inventors, the most innovative people on the face of the planet who’ve made the biggest contributions to the world, are failures. They were failures until they had their one big discovery.
