Phillip Andrew is an Emmy-nominated TV Producer, a world-traveled DJ and MC, a media and life coach, an author, and speaker. His TV shows have been viewed on Netflix, YouTube Red, CBS, NBC and more. But in his words, none of that really matters. What matters is he is dedicated to helping other people through the power of storytelling.

Phillip is passionate about educating, entertaining, and connecting with people in a way that encourages, empowers, and provokes insight. In addition to working with A-list celebrities, Doctors, Educators, Directors, Pastors, Business Owners, Former Inmates, Military and Radio Personalities, he also speaks in schools, educating and encouraging High School and College Students from all across the United States.

In today’s conversation with us, Phillip guides us through a journey of storytelling, unpacking his own story and teaching the lessons he learned along with way. We explore the aspects of great storytelling and the difference between being in service and seeking approval as it relates to sharing our transformation story and producing valuable content that inspires and empowers others.  

We dive deep into the heartbreaking story of a young teenager (Phillip) who lost his mom at 15, and used alcohol and over-achievement to mask the pain of loss, isolation, and not feeling understood by anyone. Phillip then shares how he found freedom and healing in community and how he eventually learned to grieve properly – something society does not teach us, but that is essential to our happiness and well-being.

We finish our conversation exploring the world of coaching, and how to best support people through difficult times. Being curious and squelching the advice monster are two things that Phillip recommends, if we are to truly be of service to others.

Phillip believes that every conversation holds the possibility to change the world – for someone. This is one of those conversations. Enjoy!

Key Takeaways

  1. We learn and digest content better through stories. We identify with stories and can attach ourselves to people in the story.
  2. Every movie has a character arc where the character goes through a transformation – the 180 rule. If the character is the same at the end , they didn’t learn anything, and we’re not inspired. The point of the story is to transform.
  3. You are being one of two things at any moment in the day – you’re either being service-oriented or you’re being a people pleaser. You can’t do both at the same time.
  4. We are not taught how to grieve. Most (if not all) of what we learned about grieving is wrong.
  5. Don’t suffer in silence no matter what you’re doing through. Reach out.
  6. Hurting people hurt people. That jerk at work or the supermarket is hurting, because when people are free, they don’t act that way.
  7. Silence the advice monster. Ask questions without an agenda – have the goal to be to learn.
  8. Have a mission for your life and review it every morning so you keep your in front of you every day.
