The Two Choices We All Have

With Guest Phillip Clark

, Founder and President

ENABLE Special Needs Planning

Phillip Clark

Have you ever been so frustrated with how things currently are that the rewards of changing things outweigh the challenges? Has your past ever been able to inform your present and lead you towards the future?

That’s what led Phillip Clark to start ENABLE Special Needs Planning. Phil grew up on a family farm with his two sisters – Sarah and Grace. Sarah has Down Syndrome and Phil learned from his family and his sister that we all have two choices in life – we can look at life with a limited mindset or an abundance mindset.
