Hi! I’m Phil.

I’m a reporter, founder, and two-time author.

Since 2018, I’ve published essays here at the intersection of work, business, and personal growth. I write from the perspective of a journalist-entrepreneur building a financial news startup.

My newsletter hits a range of inboxes: Wall Street professionals, top authors and editors, performance coaches, media executives, ambitious college students. Readers who like my work tend to be curious and hard-working, and interested in well-researched, well-written, and conversational views on work and life.

Why upgrade to paid?

This is the best possible way to support my work, and it tells me you believe the work I’m doing is worthwhile. For $9 a month, you can help me keep doing what I do at a high level.

I’ve been writing for almost a decade. Millions have read my work here or on Business Insider, Fortune, BuzzFeed, Inc. Magazine, and elsewhere. People tell me they read my stuff because it’s thoughtful yet thought-provoking, incisive yet optimistic, and — importantly — helpful and actionable.

I promise the best is yet to come. You can subscribe here:

A bit more about me

In early 2024, I quit my job as a senior reporter at Business Insider to co-found an independent financial media outlet with investor Anthony Pompliano. It’s called Opening Bell Daily.

My morning column is nationally syndicated on Inc Magazine.

I’ve earned a Fulbright fellowship and a handful of other reporting awards. I regularly speak on podcasts, panels, and at universities.

I’m also the founder of Journalists Club, a community for ambitious media professionals in New York City (apply here).

My books:

I’m currently based in New York City. I grew up in Southern California, and I’ve lived in Hong Kong, Germany, and Spain.

You can connect with me on Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn, or via email at philrosen4355@gmail.com.

Thank you for your support!
