This week, we have Will Hatton from www.thebrokebackpacker.com
He has been travelling around the world for seven years now and first hit the road with just a couple of dollars in his pocket and backpack.
Now, after years of roughing it and working odd jobs to stay on the road, he founded his budget adventure website 'The Broke Backpacker’.
Within the first year, he was published by The BBC, The Daily Mail, Business Insider, Forbes, Yahoo Travel and numerous other publications
He has amassed social media following of over 100,000 followers and used this to catapult himself into the limelight with editors, tourism boards and travel contacts.
He is now sponsored by GoPro, Red Bull, Hostel World and some other prominent names in the travel industry.
The Daily Mail has described him as ‘The Most Adventurous Backpacker in the World’ and he is currently preparing or should I say currently embarking on his most ambitious project to date;
A two year trip from the UK to Papua New Guinea, He wants to go through thirty countries, without the use of any flights.
Obviously, this is a really badass life that most millennials dream about, so I was really curious to get Will on the show.
In this episode, he literally breaks it all down for us.
How did he start blogging?
How did he start monetizing on writing?
How does he get some of these sponsors and businesses to support his cause and trips?
And of course, Will shared some near death experiences and cool traveling stories from all his adventures.
