Top Inspirational Speaker – Top Motivation
Have you ever felt the satisfaction of making a really good deal? Do you remember that awesome feeling of managing and succeeding in a challenging task? To be able to negotiate fully and successfully, a high level of motivation is a basic requirement, and it is especially needed for business success.
Top inspirational speaker, Michael Wigge, offers an adventure portfolio of seven incredible adventures, like How to Travel the World for Free and How to Barter for Paradise. In the TV reality show How to Barter for Paradise, he traveled through 14 countries and six continents, exchanging goods for more valuable ones to turn a bitten apple on day one into a Hawaiian home after 200 days!
This incredible challenge (PBS broadcast and published internationally as book How to Barter for Paradise) required—like all of his other challenges—an incredible amount of motivation. But how did the top inspirational speaker achieve these amazing goals? And how did he develop that outstanding level of self-motivation? Using his doppelganger “Barterman” (a bartering superhero), he was able to transact spectacular barter deals during his stay in New York City. Along the way he met strange, funny, and eccentric people who helped him in his quest. Michael stepped up his creativity by offering every kind of amazing service—from feeding wild crocodiles in Australia to playing the French horn on Mount Kilimanjaro.
Wigge on The Tonight Show
In India, he fixed up a motorized rickshaw and traded it for 250 feet of silk. He brought jade to an American millionaire to barter for three ounces of gold and silver. At this stage, Wigge had increased the value of his initial investment an unbelievable 5,000 times!
After many deals around the world, this top inspirational speaker and Tonight Show guest finally made his childhood dream come true: owning a house in Hawaii! It took spontaneity, cleverness, perseverance, and the ability to think ahead in order to strive for this fantastical dream. But he did it! One critical factor proved to be the key for this incredible outcome. Successful self-motivation and high team motivation!
The BigSpeak speaker, best-selling author, and TEDx YouTube star delivers keynotes and workshops that are characterized by his trademark style: a hybrid of journalism and entertainment. It is an intense expedition around the world and through different cultures—equally informative, inspiring, and entertaining for a wide audience. Sharing extraordinary examples of his journey, the top inspirational speaker describes (in his usual humorous manner) that with a good dose of planning, initiative, and self-confidence, every goal can be achieved successfully. Throughout seven months of extensive globetrotting, Michael and his team stayed highly motivated because of a specially designed motivation strategy. This is definitely a journey you won’t want to miss to learn the best approaches for corporate team motivation.
Interview with Top Inspirational Speaker Michael Wigge
Mr. Wigge, how did you shift from adventure traveling to becoming a top inspirational speaker in the United States and Canada?
I worked successfully as a so-called professional challenge seeker for almost two decades. This means that I set up adventure challenges for myself about every second year, and I tried to succeed in those challenges. My portfolio contains seven adventure challenges, all published as books and TV shows in the international media. One of these challenges is called “How to Travel Europe Blindfolded.” I was wearing a sleeping mask while traveling major European cities like London, Paris, and Istanbul. Obviously, this turned out to become a huge challenge since traveling without eye sight can be highly scary and confusing.
But I learned a lot on overcoming fear, trusting other people, team building, and general strategies to succeed. Other challenges of mine are titled “How to Travel the World for Free,” “How to Barter for Paradise,” and “How to Travel 50 States in 50 Days.” When I turned 35, I felt that I wanted to forward my learning experiences on stage to others. So I started building up my business as a top inspirational speaker for the United States and Canada. Nowadays, my top keynote topics are on leadership success, change management success, stress management for leadership, sales success, and self-motivation. I feel blessed to be able to share life stories with others (as my role model Tony Robbins does as well) and help audiences leave their comfort zones to personally and professionally grow. Feel free to reach out to me if you’re looking for a top inspirational speaker in the United States and Canada!
