Derek Wydra has been an online entrepreneur for almost a decade. He dropped out of university when his first project began to take off. Inspired in part by The Four Hour Work-Week, he has spent years as a digital nomad and traveling Japan, India, Colombia, Peru, Australia, Taiwan and other great countries. Currently he is based in his home country in Montréal, Canada.
His first project was based on his experiences growing up with very strong social anxiety. This ignited his interest in psychology. Under a pen name, he wrote a book and course that shared a unique new perspective on overcoming social anxiety. His work was praised by multiple clinical psychologists.
