Philip Berber Interview – Give Yourself Completely


The True Meaning of Giving - Interview Part 1

I have the unique privilege of sharing an exclusive interview with social entrepreneur, humanitarian and philanthropist, Philip Berber. I’m so excited and grateful about the way this interview unfolded that I’ll make a bold promise: The time you invest watching these couple of videos might be the best time you’ve spent in a long time and will certainly be full of actionable and engaging life-lessons you will not soon forget.

I divided this interview into two parts so you can digest the power in each message separately. Philip is such a generous man that when I first approached him about interviewing him for my vlog, on his own, he put together a set of five powerful principles for living a whole life. After editing the interview a few times, I decided that these principles were powerful enough to stand on their own so I created a special video just for these and to ensure that this specific message was heard loud and clear.


The 5 Keys to a Whole Life – Interview Part 2


About Philip Berber: Humanitarian, Co-founder A Glimmer of Hope

Philip was born in Ireland in 1958 where he grew up and attended University. Upon graduation, he moved to London where he held several strategic positions at Avon, Ford and Bausch And Lomb and then founded a few startups.

In 1995, From his home in Austin, Texas, using less than $300 dollars, he founded Cybercorp, Inc. (Cybercorp was one of the word’s first online trading and brokerage firms) and after five years, Philip managed to sell it to Charles Schwab for the fantastic sum of 488 million dollars.

Philip and his wife Donna then did something immensely generous, they pledged 100 million dollars to help improve the lives of people living in the poorest conditions. They created an endowment that would be the roots for the organization they co-founded “A Glimmer of Hope”.

Through their organization Philip and Donna have now helped over 2.5 million people and completed over 6,000 projects in rural Ethiopia in the areas of: water, health, education, and micro-finance.

A Glimmer of Hope is so bold and innovative in its approach to giving that it has now been ranked by Barron’s as the 6th most effective Philanthropy in the world, outranking the Carter Center, The Buffet Foundation, Bill Clinton’s organization Richard Branson’s “Virgin Unite” and even Bill and Melinda Gates’ foundation.

What makes me most excited about sharing this interview today is that both videos will leave you knowing that you have tools and skills within yourself to live a more fulfilling, giving and grateful life.

“It’s when we get out of the way and out of our heads, it’s when we get into our hearts and open to spirit, or guidance, or insight, or intuition – That’s when the magic happens and that’s when our true purpose and our true path unfolds.” ~Philip Berber

This is AWESOME!!!! What a wonderful, humble and well-rounded human being. I love that he and his wife don't have a 'top down we know what you need' approach to aid. I love that it is all about partnership and empowering people to participate in the betterment on both sides of the Atlantic. And I love how he gets that everyone can give in their own way. It doesn't have to look like money. He is talking about the lack of ego, he is really talking about being receptive, about being open to reality. And his service is responding to the call. Wow. So. Super. Inspired.

What a beautiful soul! Bern, you are so tapped into those who are willing to put ego aside and truly live their truth as a shining example for others! Phillip, your wisdom and willingness to share your insights are such a inspiration to me. All I can say is YES, YES, and YES! And of course, thank you.

I really appreciate his thoughts on us all being brothers and sisters and that some of us just have more opportunity than others. Really great interview, Bern!

Bernardo, Philip, Maybe it's my age, or perhaps I'm in transition. It's amazing to me that I am not being me anymore. To listen to Philip and to let his message sink in was so important to me today. To THINK you are being and doing is NOT being and doing. To put off eating right and taking care of myself physically and emotionally as well as DOING what I love isn't working anymore. And the only thing I can do is get back on track. The message was loud and clear. Thank goodness I'm not searching for who I am and what my purpose is and how to live it. It's just CRAZY to get so distracted away from my center, the girl who knew how to stay balanced and fulfilled. Guess that's something to always be on the lookout for. Right? Thanks for the energy I received to do something today! Thanks a million! Betsy

Thanks for watching Brittany, I think the main emphasis on his message is to do what you love and share what you can today, whether its financial or non financial is not as relevant as how much of yourself you put into your giving. Appreciate your comment and Welcome to yourgreatlifetv. -Bern

Humble and well rounded are the right words Syndee. I keep finding out that the most fascinating people who are really changing the world have a selflessness about them that is incredibly appealing. In other words, the more someone can put aside his or her own opinion about how great they are, the easier it is for spirit to operate and flow through them. I too am inspired by their example and humbled that he was so generous with his time and appreciation for my work. Thank you so much for watching this, I love being able to share something so powerful with you my friend. Love, -Bern

Dear Sabrina, Thank you for your heartfelt comment. I think that starting my journey after my dad passed away created an incredible need to get to the truth of things, life, people. I have little desire to share anything that is not in some clear way connected to a deep meaning of purpose so I do my absolute best to bring people whom I know will inspire and ignite that same part within my viewers. Philip is one of the most sincere, humble and generous souls I've had the chance to cross paths with and I am happy you recognize that in him. What can I say this man is the real deal and is willing to wake up others through his words, actions and most importantly his being. Thanks for visiting today sending you a huge hug! -Bern

Hi Gini, First off thank you for watching and sharing this interview, I really appreciate it and I agree with you, looking at those who are less fortunate as real family members puts our responsibility in a different light. I've met many people who are considered great givers but not all of them are in it for the depth in giving. Philip is a man whose heart is most definitely in the right place and who is only in it to help others. Sending you much love my friend, -Bernardo

Dearest Betsy, I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed this and that it touched that part of you that is longing to meet your truth. Getting out of our heads and into our hearts is a message that resonates deeply with my heart and what an incredibly humble guy Philip is right? Thank you for adding your voice and for opening your heart to this message. -Bern
