Seven years ago, Colin Wright was working 100 hours a week running a branding studio in LA. He was on track to reach his goal of becoming a millionaire before the age of 25, when he had a change of heart. This lifestyle wasn’t so exciting anymore, and he wanted see the world.
He started a blog, and asked his readers, most of them strangers, to vote on which country he was to move to next. This experiment worked, and he has been traveling around the world based on the votes of his steadily growing audience ever since.
These days his writings, including the enormously popular Exile Lifestyle blog, attract several million annual readers, and he makes frequent appearances in the international press.
In the Intrepid Times interview, you’ll hear Colin share some stories and experiences from his time in the Philippines, India, Argentina, Europe and even little old New Zealand.
