Mr Phil Tucker
We all have different names we answer to… most everyone calls me Phil, my Grandma used Phillip, my wife’s co-workers refer to me as Mr. Tucker.
The truth is Mr. Phil Tucker is a persona I have built over the years – the aspect of my character that I presented to or perceived by others.
I believe we are all on a journey… mine is one of self-mastery – something I think we all should aspire towards.
My mission statement encapsulates this idea:
I desire to live each day with integrity and compassion, maintaining a consistently positive attitude while exercising the gifts I have been given to enrich and in-service to those around me.

I am a self-taught web developer, search engine optimizer, and internet marketer, continuously educating myself and my clients on new techniques, trends, tips, and tricks… most of which I share on various blogs, like MrPhilTucker.com
My desire is to help individuals and business owners succeed – personally and professionally – especially online. I do this by creating marketing campaigns that generate revenue and increase brand awareness.
Over the years, I have found that a key to business success is listening to the needs of my clients and partner with them.
This is not always an easy process… but I have learned that when my success directly connected to the results – my clients are truly my partners.
To sum it up: the better my clients do – the better I do.
I am a follower of Jesus, a devoted husband, and an uncle. I love spending time with family & friends and working in my front yard garden. Born in Syracuse NY, I now call Lynchburg VA home… and would certainly be considered an “east-coaster”. I have not traveled outside the US, except for a three-week “honeymoon” trip to Thailand.
One of my all-time favorite mentors, Jim Rohn, once said:
Learning is the beginning of wealth. Learning is the beginning of health. Learning is the beginning of spirituality. Searching and learning is where the miracle process all begins.
Something I would suggest to anyone who desires to become more successful is to start reading self-development and non-fiction books. Start with the goal of consuming 1 book per month.
Once you are able to achieve this goal consistently – increase the number of books per month to 4 or even 5. Most CEOs read an average of 1 book per week.
This will seem strange to some around you since about a quarter of American adults (27%) say they haven’t read a book in whole or in part in the past year, whether in print, electronic or audio form – according to Pew Research.
Their study also reported that adults with annual household incomes of $30,000 or less are about three times as likely as the most affluent adults to be non-book readers.
The more I learn about the habits of the most successful among us, I saw reading as one of the keys that seem to unlock the door to success and becoming financially independent… this is why I started to consume books, especially on the subject of personal growth.
It took a few years, but I now average 1 book per week. If you want to see what I am reading… check out My Reading List.
Look for the helpers
Fred Rogers was the host of the popular long-running public television children’s show Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. One of his most famous pieces of advice to children was “Look for the helpers”… which seems like excellent advice – especially in a time of disaster or tragedy.
If you find yourself in a situation where you don’t know what to do – or you are feeling anxious, I believe Fred has a great suggestion. If you look, you can always spot those that are willing to give aid. If you don’t see them… you aren’t looking hard enough.
But, I would like to take this idea a step further.
Instead of looking for helpers, I desire to Be A Helper.
The fastest way to achieve success is to first help others succeed.
If I can help you in any way, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to connecting with you.
Here is to your success!
