BRIAN TRACY & STEPHEN DEVLIN
In Transform, Your Life, Business & Health, Stephen Devlin joins best-selling author and speaker, Brian Tracy, along with many of the world’s leading entrepreneurs and professionals to get to the heart and soul of how to transform your life, business & health.
When we think of transformation, we automatically think of metamorphosis or change. One of the first metamorphoses we discover as a child is the universally quoted change of the caterpillar into the butterfly. The positive symbolism of this transformation is liberally applied to illustrate the change from “ugly duckling” to “elegant swan” in all fields.
This symbolism readily transfers to just about any change for the better. The guidance of individuals who have experienced positive change with mentoring, have taken calculated risks, and enjoyed accomplishments in their field may be seen as role models. We also note that the transformations of the PremierExperts® in this book are not limited by “dollars and cents” measurement, but include body, mind and soul accomplishments. The transforming experiences discussed by the PremierExperts® in this book cover many subjects, including positive mindset changes, changes wrought by perseverance, passion, due diligence, restructuring, technology, systems, techniques, etc. In fact, they cover positive changes that cut across numerous disciplines and fields.

Simple Success Strategies
“Ouch, that hurt!” I exclaim but my voice sounds distant and hollow to me. I hear a murmur telling me to roll onto my back a bit more. My mind clouds as the room fades in and out, darkness to bright, and back again. “Why is it so cold in here?” my mind asks itself. I see a screen above the hard and narrow surface I am lying on. Flashing across it is a mushroom covered in white spots, like the kind you see in fairytales. But this was no fairytale. It wasn’t a mushroom either. It was a lumpy pink mass with white spots and the beginning of three long years of dealing with advanced colorectal cancer.
Mind Over Finances
From all appearances, particularly on social media, I have a successful life, and it looks like it was easy to come by. My husband, Steve, and I have been married for 17 years. Our jocular teenage son is a blessing every day and our over-friendly and rambunctious border terrier, Ted, rounds out our little family. In a few weeks, we are off to travel through France and Italy and make a point of getting away every 3 to 4 months—preferably to a warm, sunny location because I crave it! We have an idyllic life on the Sunshine Coast and in Vancouver, with homes by the ocean in both areas. I am the CEO of two successful financial companies that I co-own with Steve.
I’ve written before. I started as a junior reporter while in college. During my time collecting classes at university as a professional student, I managed to beat out master and doctorate students for a job with a world-renown Economist, which ultimately led to being published in his book. Recently I co-authored the Amazon best-selling book Simple Success Strategies for Women Entrepreneurs. Not bad for the kid was told not to go to college, let alone university—because she was “too stupid” to go.
