Interview with Motivational College Speaker Michael Wigge on his College Lectures:

-What benefits can students expect by joining your lectures? – First of all, all my students learn how to explore the United States or the entire world on a very tight budget, or if they like, even totally for free. I traveled the world for free, and developed a system how to do this with a positive attitude and lots of fun. My students usually go through an intense learning process on how to leave one’s comfort zone to grow. Most people wouldn’t travel the world for free in the first place because of fear. This is where I come into place, and support them on overcoming exaggerated fears of the unknown. Students learn how to barter for food, accommodation, and travel on a daily basis. This can be a very fun aspect, because it enables them to meet new people, and get to know the world from an unusual perspective. Embracing diversity is the key aspect in my lectures!

I’ve met over 100 incredibly generous people on my way through eleven countries around the world with no money. Barter deals can become a very fun game. I bartered jokes for muffins, handstands for burgers, pillow fights for dollars, and I even worked as a butler for wealthy people. The trip around the world has changed my entire life, and has helped me to develop personally and professionally. Here are the benefit of my lectures: Students learn how to explore the world and experience adventures on a very tight budget, but they also learn how to start an incredible personal and professional learning experience by thinking outside the box. My lecture usually turns out to be a special college diversity event for all students and professionals! Happy to talk to you soon.

Sincerely, college motivational speaker Michael Wigge
