We had the good fortune of connecting with Phillip Wells and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Phillip, how does your business help the community?
Anxiety is a feeling that most people run away from because they’ve been taught that you can’t feel FEAR! Just like you, I believed this message for most of my life and as a result, it consumed me! Whenever I would feel anxious, I would avoid it and as a result, I avoided many opportunities as well.

My business helps working professionals & entrepreneurs like YOU, overcome their anxiety by changing their relationship with this “terrifying” emotion, so that they can improve their careers AND personal life. I do this by providing mental health therapy and coaching to individuals that are suffering with performance anxiety!

What should our readers know about your business?
BREAKING NEWS! Did you know that you can be confident even if you’re having negative thoughts OR feelings of anxiety? That’s what separates me from other therapist and coaches! I teach my clients how they can still perform at a high level even if they are experiencing self doubt, imposter syndrome, or anxiety. I do this by teaching them “ACCEPTANCE”!

I’m most proud of helping entrepreneurs and working professionals develop their confidence so that they can unlock the lifestyle they’ve always wanted! It’s a great feeling showing someone that they can truly have what they want in life!

I got to where I’m at today business-wise from reading and following my heart! Jim Rome famously said that personal development is tied to your bank account! I truly agree with this and as a result, I spend a lot of money learning how to help my community. I also know what I was set on this earth to do; and that’s to help people. This was by far not easy but I was able to overcome my challenges by simply being a student and giving myself a lot of grace whenever I messed up!

One lesson I learned along the way is that “growth” is real! Once I started to let go of where I thought I should be and focused more on where I am (the process) I started to see things change. It really is a mindset once you become a entrepreneur!

I want people to know that I once suffered from performance anxiety. I know what it’s like to know deep down that you have the skill and knowledge to perform well. BUT you get so nervous that you end up failing miserably so you never live up to your true potential. Luckily for you, this doesn’t have to be the story of your life! That’s what we do!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If my best friend came to the city, I would take them to a HEAT game downtown because I’m a huge basketball fan! I would also take them to Wynwood to see the artwork downtown and then to House of Mac for some of their famous Jerk Chicken Macaroni and cheese! This would be a perfect day for me!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I’d love to give a huge shout out to two individuals that have guided me along this journey!

Dr. Giancarlo Simpson was the person who first gave me the idea of becoming a therapist! We worked together at the same high school and at the time, I was a high school counselor and he was a teacher & therapist. After telling him about my frustrations in education, he asked me if I thought about becoming a therapist and the rest was history! I followed his path and now we’re not only friends but also referral sources for each other!

Second is Dr. Delvena Thomas! I met her at a small event hosted by the Urban League one summer and her guidance up to this point has been nothing short of AMAZING! She’s a Psychiatrist and serves in the military. She also runs a private practice that is filled with other mental health professionals. The biggest impact she had on me was simple, EXPOSURE! You truly don’t know what’s possible until you see it with your own eyes and what she has accomplished is mind blowing!

Thank you to the both of you! Meeting you two is proof that God does exist!
