Episode #53: How to Follow Your Dreams with Colin Wright of Exile Lifestyle

Listen to the interview here:

Colin Wright

Colin Wright of Exile Lifestyle on Following Your Dreams.


The Expectation

Colin grew up in rural Missouri, and the obvious career path was to stay there, go to college and then get a job. But Colin thought … there has to be more.


So he started a successful branding studio that took him to Los Angeles. It was very successful. He was living the high life. Drinking wine, eating cheese and going clubbing several times a week. What more could you ask for?


While he had a lot, he didn’t have the one simple thing he wanted: “Every option on the table.” Colin made some huge changes.

Colin is the biggest, most fiercely devoted lifestyle snob we’ve ever had on the How to Quit Working Show. He’s going to show you exactly how to make sure you create a life that leaves every option on the table.

People tell me that they really want to quit their job, travel, or whatever it happens to be, but we’ve all got the same 24 hours. It’s not like those of us who are making it happen are super-human. If you decide you want to do something, just make it happen.

Colin will share how he’s done it all as well as:

  • Why he worked so hard to build relationships with a powerful network of influencers.
  • Why success for you might look very different than success for him. 
  • What you should consider if you want to travel the world full-time.
