AuthorArt Balsam

Polyglot and traveler Art Balsam has changed his life almost completely in the last few years. From fat to fit, from hoarder to minimalist, from office slave to digital nomad, from just comfortable to actually being happy. In 2017 he made a list of 15 languages he wanted to speak while living in each of the corresponding countries. Since then he has reduced his entire life's possessions to the size of hand luggage and traveled to over 20 countries. He is currently living mainly in Madrid and already learning his fifth language. Since Art's story inspired many people around him, he now wants to take on the next challenge. As a motivational speaker he is offering a bigger stage for something that has grown from a craziness through a fascination to a way of life. Let him take you on a journey from Dream through Believe to Achieve.
