Paring Life Down To The Essentials With Colin Wright

Colin Wright
Colin Wright has been traveling full time since 2009

Traveler, writer and minimalist Colin Wright met with success as a young man. By his early twenties, he was earning six figures. At the age of twenty-four he realized that money and success wasn't adding up to happiness. In 2009, Wright quit his job, sold almost everything he owned, and decided to travel the world with just two carry-on bags. He wrote about his experiences in a blog called "Exile Lifestyle."  

Now in 2019, he has published many books, he has blogged about his adventures, and hosts a podcast called "Let's Know Things." Wright is finishing his year-long speaking tour called "The Becoming Tour," which focuses on his most recent book Becoming Who We Need To Be

In this episode of Talk of Iowa, host Charity Nebbe talks with Wright about his approach to life and the lessons he has learned along the way.
