What do they all have in common? 

They have discovered their purpose and unlocked their creative potential. We have been born into a time when the tools to make our dreams a reality are available and, for the most part, affordable. We have the freedom to manifest our truth, pursue our own path, and along the way discover our best selves. Whether as individuals or as part of a group, we can’t be held back by anything except lack of knowledge. 

The Age of Ideas provides that knowledge. It takes the reader on an incredible journey into a world of self-discovery, personal fulfillment, and modern entrepreneurship. The book starts by explaining how the world has shifted into this new paradigm and then outlines a step-by-step framework to turn your inner purpose and ideas into an empowered existence. Your ideas have more power than ever before, and when you understand how to manifest and share them, you will be on the road to making an impact in ways you never before imagined.


Welcome to the Age of Ideas.

“The Age of Ideas is refreshing dose of wisdom, culture and a window into “the art of possibility.” Alan Philips has a knack for tapping into some of the world's most creative leaders and the unique brilliance that made them successful.”

Jonathan Neman, Founder, Sweetgreen

"The Age of Ideas delivers the “why” on so many of the things we enjoy in the world of culture and explains the business strategy going on behind the scenes. The history of how the entrepreneur got there is the canvas and the “why” is the paint that forms the portrait. Alan does an incredible job of explaining why entrepreneurs are modern day artists who transform ideas into things that inspire our imaginations."

Eugene Remm, Founder, Rumble Boxing and Catch Restaurants

"I've known Alan for over 15 years. I became an avid reader of The Age of Ideas newsletter not knowing that he was the author behind the platform. When I found out that I knew the man behind the writing, I was blown away. The Age of Ideas newsletter and now book concisely breaks down the magic behind the world's most brilliant minds. It is inspiring while providing the readers real utility. And for the record, I deny ever stealing quotes for our company town halls."
