Mike MargoliesIn 2013, Mike Margolies had all the things you’re supposed to want to make you happy, but it wasn’t enough. He left his corporate job as an engineer to see if the world had something else to offer that might fulfill him.

The risks were minimal – to take a career break in your 20s is not completely unheard of. I did it and it changed me.

What Mike found did change the direction of his life, his definition of a career, the limits of his curiosity, and creativity, and today’s he’s exploring the travel lifestyle on his podcast, Walking the Earth. I’m curious to get into who Mike is, what he’s exploring through the podcast, what his definition of ‘the travel lifestyle’ is, and his stories from his travels.
