Phil has certainly had a lively career path, which is rivaled only by his personality and entrepreneurial spirit. He started out as a salesman while earning his degree in architecture at Oklahoma State University. Soon after, he and his wife, Carol, moved to Dallas where they lived for 30 years while raising their family.
Phil built his own architecture and real estate development business while in Dallas, but because of a downturn in the real estate market, Phil eventually found himself in a different career — Sales Promotion Director at Mary Kay Cosmetics! Eventually, he became the Vice President of Sales which allowed him to travel the world with Mary Kay herself. Phil’s next career move was investing in and operating a small security and patrol company, which became publicly-traded was later sold to a Swiss investment group.
Phil believes laughter is the best medicine, and stand-up comedy is something he’s had a passion for most of his adult life. He had quite a stint doing stand-up comedy all over the country, performing in hundreds of comedy clubs and for corporations and churches. In the late ’90s, Phil settled down in East Tennessee, to build and operate The Glasgow Comedy Dinner and Show in Pigeon Forge. Although this venture wasn’t a success, he admits this pursuit of a lifelong dream was a unique experience that grew him exponentially. For the past 18 years Phil’s primary focus has been his clients at Glasgow Wealth Management—helping families with financial strategies for estate, investments, and retirement planning.
