Philip McKernan – Finding Your Gift
In this episode we interview Philip McKernan, a coach, inspirational speaker, author, and filmmaker. He shares his life experiences and how they have influenced his outlook today, and tips & advice for how to find your path to happiness and fulfillment – creating a life that means something and finding your gift!
Philip is an Inspirational Speaker, Author & Filmmaker. He works with entrepreneurs and business leaders all over the world to help them seek clarity about their future, or need help moving through roadblocks, seen and unseen.
He helps people get clear on who they are and where they need to go so they feel aligned in all areas of life.
More recently he worked with the Canadian Olympic Team, The Pentagon and has shared the stage with other speakers like the Dalai Lama and Richard Branson. With a knack of getting into all sorts of scenarios (or trouble!) he’s enjoyed a broad range of experiences which we will get into later.
Philip’s first documentary film Give & Grow, was released in late 2016. The film explores how the gift of giving makes up feel more worthy and alive. It also explores the science behind the impact of giving on our emotional well being, our mental health, our physiology and our business’s.
Philip believes the path to a happy and fulfilling life is found through the meaning we derive in life through the WORK we do, our relationship to OTHERS and the most important relationship of all, the one with ones SELF.
