Understanding Data Use in Politics with Phillip Stutts #LivingFearlessly with Lisa McDonald

It is not every Friday on Living Fearlessly with Lisa McDonald International Radio/Podcast Show, that I get to speak with a guest who goes on record as saying that a rare, incurable disease saved their life, and fueled their mission to help business owners. Even more so impressively shocking a revelation and a declaration, is when this particular individual has built up an international profile and a global repertoire of ongoing success and notoriety. A lot to perceivably lose when on the receiving end of an incurable diagnosis…or is it?!

It became abundantly clear to me while interviewing Phillip Stutts, that what I believe underscores and magnifies Phillip’s synergistic relationship with ongoing success in life is his phenomenally resilient attitude, approach, and outlook on life. This man has a topnotch mindset, which continues to serve himself well, and has afforded him the new path of continuously serving others, albeit a little differently than perhaps prior to his diagnosis. 

My interview with Phillip Stutts is an important one to be listened to via the enclosed podcast link, especially for anyone who is struggling with adversity, unforeseen news, or emotional setbacks. It is a choice as to whether we choose to succumb to victimology or whether we take unfortunate circumstances in our lives and instead…make it work to our advantage. Quitting should never be an option, which Phillip not only attests to wholeheartedly, but who also embodies and exemplifies this in his day-to-day life and living practices. 

As you listen to the enclosed podcast link of our wonderful interview together, you will realize that Phillip and I philosophically differed with varying schools of thought; which I absolutely respected and appreciated! I love engaging in deep and meaningful dialogue, which affords me the opportunity to glimpse alternative perspectives. My receiver mode is always on and open for further expansion, enlightenment, and learning opportunities. Thank you for growing me, Phillip!


Although, Phillip’s CV is beyond remarkable – it is his indomitable human spirit of which I was most impressed! It was this particular aspect and element of Phillip, which I found to be most inspiring and endearing. Thank you for the gift of your time, Phillip! Thank you for your ongoing contributions and dedication to paying it forward and to being of service to the collective. You are appreciated our friend! 

On behalf of both Phillip and myself, we wish to thank you for generously taking time out of your hectic schedules so as to kindly read this Feature Article on Phillip. We also wish to mutually thank you for graciously finding the time to listen to the enclosed podcast link of our amazing interview, together. For any additional contact and connection you may further wish to initiate extending to either or to both Phillip and myself; we wish to offer you our deepest of appreciation! Thank you once again!

Uplifting You To Fear Less And To Live More! 

Be your own Hero. Be your own Shero. 
Be your own Leader. Be your own Best Friend! 
Love & Gratitude ~ Lisa

Phillip Stutts is fighting a rare, incurable disease. Diagnosed in 2012 with the esophageal disease, Achalasia, he spent five years ignoring it. Frankly, he put his head in the sand, taking medications that did more harm than good, and waiting for the inevitable. Then he woke up and said no more. His mission today is to find a cure and pursue a life of constant growth and giving. And he’s making progress. 

Phillip is also the best-selling author of “Fire Them Now: The 7 Lies Digital Marketers Sell…”, and one of the masterminds behind the curtain of political marketing. With more than 20 years of political and marketing experience, Stutts has worked with multiple Fortune 200 companies, has over two decades of experience working on campaigns with billions of dollars in political ad spend, and contributed to over 1,200 election victories, including hundreds of U.S. House campaigns, dozens of U.S. Senate campaigns, and even three U.S. Presidential victories.

He is the founder and executive chairman of Go BIG Media (a political media firm) and the founder and CEO of Win BIG Media (a corporate marketing agency). Together, these companies have won more than 41 national awards for marketing and creative content.

In addition to being represented by Gary Vaynerchuk’s VaynerSpeakers and a keynote speaker for one of the country’s largest privately held speakers bureaus, Keppler Speakers, Phillip has made more than 260 national media appearances including CBS, ESPN, FOX NEWS, FOX BUSINESS, MSNBC, and CNN. He has also appeared on some of the world’s most popular podcasts including Gary Vaynerchuk’s The DailyVee, The James Altucher Show, The Adam Carolla Show, The Dr. Drew Podcast, Jay Abraham’s The Ultimate Entrepreneur, Big Questions with Cal Fussman, and The Dr. Gundry Podcast. He has been lauded as a “marketing genius” by FOX BUSINESS, “the political guru” by ESPN, and “The Michael Jordan of Political Marketing…” by Mike Dillard.
