what my clients are saying
I’d highly recommend The Project Shaman to any organization or leader who is looking for a results-driven, highly effective marketer, strategist and communicator. Working with The Project Shaman, we have launched a full scale video marketing program and built and launched over 20 strategic marketing courses.
The Project Shaman always brings out the best of me; my website alone attracts new clients and his advice has made me a better consultant. You are fun, authentic, efficient and very knowledgeable. The Project Shaman always over delivers beyond my expectation and makes me look very good. :)
The Project Shaman is a great asset for any individual or company to have access to - a great friend who cares about the success and people he works with. With Phi’s coaching, my success has accelerated and I’ve been able to meet most of my targets (sales, family, lifestyle, etc.) and have a building block for my future growth.
With your help, I’ve taken control of my business website, discovered and leveraged the power of online videos, and built an incredible brand on social media. As I entered into my current political campaign for City Councillor, your foundation has served to connect me to my neighbours and enroll volunteers at incredible rates.
With your help, I’ve become a much more organized person, in both business and life. Thank you for your practical knowledge, your generosity and accountability, and being approachable, responsible and punctual with your guidance. Everybody with a business would benefit greatly from your knowledge.
It was so easy to creatively collaborate with you on the entire project. You made a complicated, and to me overwhelming project, into a very easy, smooth and enjoyable one. Thank you for listening, interpreting and taking what's in someone else’s head and making it a reality! You turned my ideas into an exceptional video.
The Project Shaman has given me a broader vision of what’s possible in my business, as well as action steps that I can take immediately to get the next product launch completed and off to a strong start! With your help, I’ve developed skills that I never knew I could have; from skills in online branding to lead generation!
Phi really takes the time to understand every project, the goals we'd like to reach, and always has good advice for a new perspective or direction to go in. With his help, I’ve learned to ask the right questions when writing a business plan, what a good logo, website and social media strategy is, and how to maximize their value.

"Knowing is not enough. We must apply.
Willing is not enough. We must do.”
Hi! My name's Phi and I'm The Project Shaman.
I’m a Business & Life Coach/Consultant and I help my clients (and their teams) leverage best practices in their business and life. Using the 80/20 rule, I help my clients discover and focus on high impact opportunities that will truly make a difference, and then help them get it done!
I decided to press eject on my film career and leave it all.
In a past life I landed my 'dream job' as a well paid, full time visual effects artist working on feature films like '300' and 'Happy Feet' or for commercial clients like Toyota and Ford. It was my job to make magic happen on tight deadlines and under immense pressure. At the end of any big project, it often meant working 16 hour days, seven days a week. I realized in this 'glamorous' corporate hollywood lifestyle I'd never have the time or freedom to physically be there for my family. In short, I'd miss out on my sons soccer games and daughters dance recitals.
I seriously almost died becoming an entrepreneur.
A near-death experience inspired me to redesign my life to have more time freedom, stop commuting and become a cubicle escape artist. I wanted to start working from home, run my business off of a cell phone, have no ceiling on my income and truly experience the happiness by being present with my family for more than a couple hours a day.
The 80/20 rule changed my business and life forever.
I discovered the 80/20 rule and realized that with the right knowledge about business, sales & marketing my life could be very different. From there on I spent my long work days listening to endless audio books, and my 4 hour daily commute reviewing my notes and distilling best practices. With this knowledge I built an escape pod and successfully launched my new business and life working from home.
Now I help others leverage proven best practices too.
I work with my clients from my home office in beautiful Hamilton, the 'City of Waterfalls' (60km southwest from Toronto, Ontario), or by using my mobile office setup while traveling with my family. I love the freedom of both my business and life, and it's my goal to help others make happiness the center of their business model.
