A NON-PROFIT FOUNDATION FOUNDED IN 2013
“A Master in the Art of Living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both.”
François-René de Chateaubriand
I am in awe of the world. I live to explore new places, customs and meet new people. My passion is to learn and understand the business practices, ideas, and cultures of other countries. As an entrepreneur and small business owner, I’ve traveled the world personally and professionally for the past 31 years, which has brought me much success and happiness.
A friend once told me that with blessings, come responsibilities. In December 2013, I founded The Wandering Capitalist, a non-profit foundation whose mission is to support and raise money for organizations that serve at-risk youths with an interest in entrepreneurship and small business ownership. The Wandering Capitalist is a self-funded foundation. This means 100% of funds raised are distributed.
Each year, I travel the world on several multi-month trips. These journeys are used as a vehicle to raise money for The Wandering Capitalist. I personally track miles walked and donate $9.78 per mile to our charity partners. 1036 miles and counting!
Within our first two years of inception, The Wandering Capitalist raised more than $50,000 from over 225 individual donors for our non-profit colleagues:
BUILD – Greater Boston * NFTE – Chicago * Future Founders – Chicago
It is an honor to work with and support our charity partners, as their mission and core values compliment my vision for The Wandering Capitalist. This vision aims to make a difference in my current home of Chicago, as well as the home of my youth, Boston.

In closing, I am asking you (family, friends, business partners and associates, and anyone else who believes) to contribute by donating a fixed amount each year to support The Wandering Capitalist’s philanthropic activities.
During my travels, I’ll blog about my experiences, things I find interesting and cool, and interview people from all walks of life. Trust me, I will not take myself too seriously!
I’d love to hear from you, so please join my blog and/or social media.
I appreciate your fellowship and support.
Sincerely & Respectfully,
The Wandering Capitalist
