We’ve got fantastic news: Muse Stacey Venzel, world traveler and zoologist, was recently commissioned to write a children’s book about turtles!
With her gorgeous writing style and passion for wildlife and conservation, it’s clear that Stacey is a perfect choice for this project. We can’t wait to see the result!
Another thing that we love about this wonderful news: it’s more proof that doing what you love, with gratitude and hustle, will take you to fantastic places. Last year, Stacey decided to take a radical sabbatical to travel and work around the world, write, and explore her individuality.
“I learned to love me for me,” she writes. “I accomplished unwritten goals and fell short of others. I realized I want to be defined by more than one passion. I discovered strengths and weaknesses within myself. I have no regrets.”
And to this list, she can now add “became a childrens’ book author!”
We believe deeply in the importance and value of taking smart risks and an adventurous approach to life – an approach that Stacey embodies. While a creative life can’t guarantee financial richness, we can guarantee of beautiful experiences, once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, and moving memories.
Congratulations, Stacey! We’re so excited for you.
