Peter Wright spent most of his life in Southern Africa. His corporate career included marketing management in large and small companies.
This was followed by establishing and running his own small factory and an export trading business. He travelled extensively in Southern and Central Africa until civil war in 2 major markets wiped out the export business.
Peter then became a farmer in Zimbabwe.In 2002 he became a casualty of the government's illegal and violent policy of driving commercial farmers off their farms, losing the farm and all his assets.
Arriving in Canada with 2 suitcases and a horse saddle, Peter survived initially by helping farmers with greenhouse and irrigation work then started in Network and Internet Marketing, Blogging, writing, speaking and coaching.
