In his candid new book, Redefining Success: Still Making Mistakes, entrepreneur and ex-Dragons’ Den panellist W. Brett Wilson shares his hard-earned life and business lessons. An avid traveller, he also divulges his top five bucket-list journeys…

Storm chasing

“I’d follow wild weather, with a Canadian guide, somewhere in the tornado belt of central North America.”

Route 66

“It would take only a couple of weeks from start to finish, maybe in a ’57 Ford Thunderbird.”

Africa by road

“A tip-to-tip journey in about four months, starting in Cape Town, South Africa and ending in Cairo, Egypt.”

Sailing somewhere

“I envision a voyage of three to four months…maybe the Caribbean, maybe the South Pacific.”

Around the world

“I want to [visit] the 10 largest slums of the great cities of the globe. The population of slums is forecast to greatly exceed the non-slum-dwelling population of the world in the near future. Can I better help alleviate the suffering if I better understand what it’s like?”
