Jim Phillips is a nationally known speaker and teacher who has professionally taught thousands of classes all across the United States for 40 years.
For a number of years prior to this career, his hobby was teaching cold weather safety & survival.
Jim is a strong advocate of self-reliant living and family preparedness. He developed an entire preparedness curriculum by asking himself the question “What if?” and then setting out to discover what actually does and does not work.
The answers he seeks (and then teaches) must be based on true principles derived from firsthand experience. Above all else, Jim believes that attitude and practical knowledge are more critical to survival than having a bunch of “stuff.”
He is known for saying…
“Who you are and what you know are far more
important than what you have.”
He encourages his students to develop a powerful positive purpose and mission to focus on in order to carry them through the serious challenges of life. He was also referred to me by expert council member and friend of TSP Steven Harris.
