The Renegade of Self-Improvement — Philip McKernan

Posted by Jason Ferruggia

Phillip McKernan

Philip McKernan is a speaker, coach, writer and filmmaker.

He works with entrepreneurs and business leaders all over the world. When people are seeking clarity about their future or want to move through roadblocks, seen and unseen, they call Philip. As a speaker he has inspired and challenged the Canadian Olympic Team and The Pentagon, to name a few.

What separates Philip from a lot of coaches, speakers and gurus is originality. He brings new conversations to the table and spends an obscene amount of time thinking and challenging the status quo, instead of simply repackaging business & life hacking strategies.

I had a very interesting discussion with Philip on the most recent podcast.

Topics include:

  • Making the leap from mindset to “soulset”
  • The problem with goals
  • The importance of pursuing artistic endeavors
  • The benefits of improve and comedy
  • The problem with the self-help industry
  • How to live authentically
  • Fixing your relationship with money
  • Is gratitude just another trendy buzzword
  • Why sometimes you need to stop and do nothing
  • Tips on building happy, successful relationships
