The Sky Seems to be Wigge’s Limit for the Professional Motivational Speaker

Professional motivational speaker Michael Wigge shares the lessons he learned in overcoming awe-inspiring challenges in an authentic, fascinating, and humorous way. He explains how work can become one’s passion and how desire for success can be reignited. The key question: What exactly is your goal?

Interview with Professional Keynote Speaker Michael Wigge on How He Shifted from Adventure Traveling to Speaking:

Michael, how and when did you change the focus of your profession?

Wigge: I was basically living my dreams for almost two decades by setting up my own adventure challenges, and publishing them as books and television shows in Germany and in the United States. This was a luxury situation because I chose one challenge after another, that would help me develop personally and professionally. In ‘How to Travel the World for Free’, I overcame most of my fears, because traveling 30,000 miles without any money can be a huge comfort-zone-leaving exercise in terms of fear. My other very big challenge is entitled ‘How to Barter for Paradise’ as a book and ‘Trade Up around the World’ as a stage show. Here, I bartered a bitten apple for bigger and better to get a house in Hawaii – after 42 barter deals. This was a one year extremely tough challenge, that taught me a lot on leadership, sales, and team building to become a professional motivational speaker. Furthermore, I exposed myself to other challenges like ‘Traveling Europe Blindfolded’. Here, I left my comfort zone on a very different level, and learned a lot on overcoming fears, deleloping self-motivation, and stress management. After 15 years of these comfort-zone-leaving-exercises, I realized that it was time to forward my experiences on stage, and started working as an internationally recognized professional keynote speaker and challenge coach. Feel free to reach out to me for further inquiries on booking me as your professional motivational speaker!
