We all have different names we answer to… most everyone calls me Phil, my Grandma used Phillip, my wife’s co-workers refered to me as Mr. Tucker. The truth is Mr. Phil Tucker is a persona – the aspect of my character that is presented to or perceived by others – developed over the past several years. We are all on a journey… self-mastery is a chanage we all should aspire towards.
My mission statement incapsulate 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.
Professionally, 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 this one.
My desire is to help solopreneurs and business owners succeed online, 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.
The better my clients do – the better I do.
Personally, I am a follower of Jesus, devoted husband, and uncle. I love spending time with family & friends… working in my front yard garden.
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.
One of the ways I “pay-it-forward” is by offering Financial Coaching at no-charge and teaching Financial Peace University multiple per year – Financial Peace University will help you take control of your money, plan for your future, and transform your life.
Dave Ramsey’s FPU is a life-changing class that has impacted my life in such a huge way… using the principles Dave teaches, my wife and I were able to become debt-free – including our house – with the goal of building wealth and being ridiculously generous along the way. This is why I encourage everyone to attend FPU… maybe even more than once 😉
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!
