That's just the way he is, right? On the surface it exposes Brett Wilson's heart, which Warren Spitz says is three times too big sometimes.
He means that in the nicest way. Sometimes other dragons have mocked Wilson, as they did when he invested in the Aerial Angels, a travelling acrobatic troupe.

Wilson is well aware of how soft he can sometimes appear on television, especially against the caustic pronouncements of Kevin O'Leary.
He says the diligent editing of the show makes him appear kinder than he is on occasion. He says he asks a bazillion questions, possibly deemed tedious by the editing team. I've asked that of everyone I've ever invested in. I don't think it has ever made it to TV.

If there is such a thing as an AA type personality, I would qualify at times. Now much of my time is spent pursuing my personal interests — my children, friends, passions, and having fun.
You climbed Kilimanjaro twice. I climbed Kilimanjaro inand when I got back I told my friends that I would never do that again. Then my three children asked if I would go back to climb with them and I said, of course I would. We went in Julyso I trained for that and for a biathlon with my daughter that June.
I travel with my running and swimming gear; as a former competitive swimmer, I love swimming. You openly regret your early parenting.
I chose work over parenting for many years. The business was growing and needed attention, but it came at a cost. You admitted yourself to a centre for therapy? I attended The Meadows, a well-known addiction and trauma treatment centre in Arizona, to deal with issues surrounding work addiction. I began evolving, recognizing that without my physical, emotional, and intellectual health, I was of no use to anyone including myself.
How have you evolved so far? I consciously try to improve myself through training, personal development programs, and working with a coach for life planning. If the top golfers in the world still need three coaches a putting, swing, and drive coach it must mean that using a coach is okay.
First, you need the awareness of problems, and then you need to take the time to do something about them. As an investor, how have you invested in yourself? I pay attention to what I eat. Though I eat out a lot, we have a full-time office chef to ensure that my entire team eats well. Why did you decide to go public with your cancer story? Over the years, I have spoken to many patients about my experience and still receive feedback about an internet video that discusses my journey.
Did you use treatments other than conventional ones? I worked with a healer, a naturopathic doctor, and an acupuncturist and was very open to complementary modalities.
I feel that western medicine is fairly closed minded to alternative therapies, yet those practising alternative therapies are fairly open to all forms of treatment. Within the medical system I became very frustrated: What advice do you give others?
Find the treatment that suits you. I chose radiation therapy. How did having cancer affect you? You take a closer look at your own mortality. This, like a major injury or death in the family, becomes a wakeup call.
You have given millions to nonprofits. How did you become interested in philanthropy?
