Phil's life has been defined by facing many of life's biggest fears - fear of failure, loss, change, survival, high expectations, and most importantly, the unknown. These are the same fears every individual and every organization must embrace if we are to reach our full potential.  Phil’s unique experiences will garner instant respect from your audience. 

Academically, Phil has degrees from two Ivy League schools - Yale University and Harvard Business School.  As a businessperson, Phil worked on Wall Street as an Investment Banker for Goldman, Sachs. As an entrepreneur, Phil founded a fitness company from his garage that has generated millions in revenue and created a new category of fitness equipment. He has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Entrepreneur Magazine, The New York Times, and on the hit TV series “Shark Tank”.  His experience as a Navy SEAL and a Firefighter rounds out his credentials with powerful insights about leadership, accountability, discipline, honor, teamwork, communication, and trust, just to name a few. 

Phil has taken the best of each of these experiences and created a captivating and moving presentation that will leave your audience energized and charged to be FEARLESS in their pursuit of success and happiness.
