Embracing Minimalism with Colin Wright

Colin Wright seemed to have it all. A successful, multi-millionaire by the age of 24, he realized there was way more he wanted to accomplish in life than just making as much money as possible. In 2009, he sold everything he owned that wouldn’t fit into a carry-on suitcase (EVERYTHING!), scaled his business down, and started a blog called Exile Lifestyle where he would ask his readers to vote on what country he should move to and live in every four months. Over the next 10 years, Colin lived in Argentina, New Zealand, Thailand, Iceland, India, Romania, the Czech Republic, and the Philippines. He visited 60 other countries as well all 48 contiguous states (twice), road tripped through South America, explored Europe by train – he kept his promise to himself to live as simply as possible so he could focus on the things that mattered most. Colin has written multiple books including How To Travel Full-Time and hosts his own podcast called Let’s Know Things.
