  • There are a ton of coaches out there, but very few have the knowledge, experience, and expertise that Phil has. He’s a true practitioner, actually doing what he teaches, which is rare these days. I’ve worked with Phil for a few years now, and I don’t believe there’s a better industry expert out there. He’s done it all, in the trenches, but also understands it from a very high level.
