- Peter Wright is a former corporate marketing manager and business owner who has lived in Africa for 40 years and traveled extensively in sub-Saharan Africa. He is now a podcast host, editor, and writer.
- Peter emphasizes the importance of curiosity, perseverance, determination and not giving up easily. It's also important to recognize when you're on the wrong path.
- He has experienced major setbacks like losing all his wealth and possessions twice due to political changes, but was able to rebuild successfully both times.
