Choose Positive Living with Sara Troy and her guests Donna and Stephen Fry, on-air from May 26th

What we have learnt so far on our journey of meeting someone new every day for 366 days. The Why are we doing it and whom does it serve along the way? This is our topic of conversation today on the importance of connecting with kindness.

Stephan is a Recovering Socially Awkward Engineer

Stephen and Donna went to School together in country South Australia in the late ‘70s/early 80s, but never spoke a word to each other at School. After School, they each went their own way, Stephen moving to Adelaide for University and Donna starting a career in Administration. They both got married in their early 20s, had four children each and carried on with their lives.

In 2012, they started conversing via Facebook Messenger and discovered that they had a similar story of a failed marriage. Through conversation, they found that they had the same mindset and thinking about a lot of things. They decided to meet and became good friends. Then in 2015, they got married. At the time of getting married, Stephen and Donna realized that what they were doing in their lives was not going to get them to where they wanted to go, so a change was necessary. They sought quality mentorship and were introduced to a couple who were successful in all areas of life. In fact, they were living the kind of lifestyle that Stephen and Donna knew they wanted. They drove 9 hours to meet this couple and after many conversations, they agreed to take Stephen and Donna under their wings and coach and mentor them. This started the desire to change which has led to the 366 day journey of meeting someone new every day
