Redefining Success: Still Making Mistakes

by W Brett Wilson

Penguin Canada | November 6, 2012 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

Redefining Success: Still Making Mistakes is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
W. Brett Wilson, Dragons' Den co-star and Risky Business host, often gets asked about his secrets to success. He became one of Canada's top investment bankers because he was driven, willing to take risks and saw opportunity where others saw roadblocks. But along the path to business success, he tripped over a multitude of misguided priorities. For many years, Wilson pursued business with uncompromising focus, working long hours, seven days a week. In the process, his marriage and his health suffered greatly: he was rarely home as his children were growing up, divorce became inevitable and cancer struck at age forty-three. He truly learned the hard way that one can find financial success and the respect of business peers while almost losing what matters most: health, family and friends. Redefining Success details how Wilson was forced to redefine his life, making health and key relationships his first priorities. Through trial and error, he discovered that these simple virtues are foundational for real, enduring success, both in business and in life. Wilson's compelling insights are the basis for Redefining Success. Not just for entrepreneurs and business people, the book outlines how we can change our lives for the better by re-evaluating our personal definitions of success, then reworking them into a life plan that is feasible, lasting and rewarding. Inspirational and paradigm-changing, Redefining Success will help you implement and sustain lasting, positive change in your life—and make your world a little more meaningful—everyday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideas for breaking out I was given this book at a financial planning event hosted by Holliswealth in Newmarket. I've been given books at so many events I'm not sure what made me open this one. The few times I've watched The Dragon's Den (and I do enjoy it) I remember Kevin and Arlene .. Maybe Brett had already left the show? In any event ... Don't let the first 20 pages which are a bit repetitive, discourage you from finishing this wonderful book! From Brett Wilson's personal stories and journey to his challenges and contributions to his community, friends and family ... To the little walk through the Canada west recent history (late 70's and 80's) ... To sharing creative ideas for fundraising in the world of supporting non-profits (my own journey with Ability Online has me thirsting for ideas in my spare time) ... This book was educational, entertaining and inspiring! I loved it and recommend it to any Canadian who enjoys reading to learn.
