Welcome back to season two of Hard Beautiful Journey! For my first guest, I welcome my longtime friend Stacey Wallis.
Stacey and I met in grade 7 at Shaunavon High School and has been a light in my life ever since. In this episode, Stacey wears her heart on her sleeve as she reveals to us the moment she discovered her husband was having an affair. Despite the devastation from the death of her marriage, Stacey went public and immediately sought self-restitution. Stacey sold her dream house and her Kona truck business and continued on to life’s next calling.
After multiple Europe visits, Stacey knew that she had to make a move and Amsterdam was her number one choice. She dedicated all of her energy to making that happen, ignoring all the pushback and judgment she received because life is too short not to live your dream.
