My Story

After several attempts at corporate jobs and a lot of angst and feeling like I had landed on the wrong planet, I came to the realisation that my unusual combination of interests and skills was actually a strength, not a liability.

I gave up the security of my 9-5, began spending more time with my two gorgeous kids Faith and Nash, and carried out a multitude of odd jobs to keep a roof over our heads while slowly building an online coaching business from the ground up.

My mantra is always the same: “Never give up.” I feel life has been incredibly good to me, and occasionally friends would call me “Lucky Phil.”


Though my luck took a holiday in 2011 when we lost our second child Taj. It was a truly terrible and heart-wrenching time for our family. Taj was just six months old and he never made it out of hospital. Nothing was detected in the regular scans during pregnancy.

The little guy was born with transposition of the great artery – more commonly known as “heart valves around the wrong way.” Taj underwent so many operations in that six months before he passed away, that we almost lost count.

Then in 2013, Faith arrived into the world. She’s definitely a gift, and like many father’s attempting to navigate their way around raising little girls, I am always in awe of her unique way of appearing adorable, though at the same time being an extremely wily negotiator!
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been immensely curious about human potential. I wanted to know, what exactly it was that makes people genuinely happy, successful and creatively fulfilled?
Why do some people struggle while others find a way to thrive, often despite the most challenging circumstances?
I am also passionate about a multitude of seemingly unconnected interests:
writing, psychology, entrepreneurship, teaching, creativity, spirituality, fitness, surfing and rugby union just to name a few.


My mantra is always the same: "Never give up." I feel like life has been incredibly good to me, and occasionally friends would call me "lucky Phil."
