Immense kudos to Phil for continuing to enlighten others through his platform of giving back to the community. Phil continues to amaze me at his efforts. Philanthropy, entrepreneurship or creating an uplifting platform is not easy at all. So when you see someone go with their dreams, stick with it and are able to reach their initial goals while motivating others, it does something to you. You can tell by the audience reaction at Dream Reach Inspire they are coming for information and reassurance.
