Today we have Phil MacNevin on the show talking about Dungeons and Dragons. Phil is a friend of mine that I have had in the entrepreneurial world for many years now. I have known him as a copywriter, brilliant operations manager in several companies, start-ups, and growing his own businesses and brands. Most recently Dungeons and Dragons miniatures which has landed him in an entirely new industry of tabletop gaming. 

So Phil has a lot of the same roots in entrepreneurship, coaching, leadership, and personal development and is now exploring the world of gaming.  I find that the way that these two worlds interact is really fascinating and powerful and a much-needed tool for entrepreneurs these days.  There are a lot of benefits that you can get through playing a role-playing game such as Dungeons & Dragons. That is what we are going to be talking about with Phil today. 

In This Episode:

  • Taking that time to rest is actually what allows you to problem-solve. Learning more about play gives you another place to let go of a lot of that stress. 
  • It puts you in situations where you have to think outside the box. As an entrepreneur that allows us to expand our creative thinking and problem-solving capabilities. 
  • Role-playing gives you an opportunity to practice these skills in a safe environment that does not impact the real world. You are learning from these experiences but you are not in a real-world situation. It gives you a safe environment to test and experiment. 
  • And so much more!!!
