Phillip Carroll was an internationally renowned entrepreneur who, in 1885, was described by Forbes magazine as, “only 25 years old and as rich as cheesecake.” That feature article applauded his first venture, Three Buoys Houseboat Vacations. Their claim to fame was they launched more boats than the US Navy.
After 10 years of fine-tuning the art of house boating into a multi-million-dollar business, Phil and his partner plunged into the real estate industry managing and selling a billion dollars worth of real estate.
Phil’s greatest success was his 22 year marriage to the love of his life, Jennifer and the extraordinary life they shared with their children travelling the world, running triathlons, snowboarding, and living life out loud…Phil was UNSTOPPABLE! Then, at the age of 47, he was faced with the toughest deal of his life, Prostate Cancer!
Together, they share their tales, told by Jennifer with her unique energy and enthusiasm, along with powerful video messages from Phil himself, the Carrolls present: “PHIL-osophies of Life: How to Be Unstoppable!”

He imagines his cancer disappearing from his body and he pictures himself doing all the things he love so much like surfing with his family in Canada and running on the beach in California with his daughter and watching his son play hockey in Victoria. Phil surrounds himself with positive visual images of the life he imagines so passionately.
