Gavin Sequeira Interviews Daniel Phillips – IT Professional Turned Historian and Ghost Tour Operator

Global Rank Top 5% - Break Free From Corporate

Interview with Daniel Phillips

In this podcast, Daniel shares his story of how he faced a tough choice of staying in a corporate IT job that would compromise his integrity with the direction the business was heading. After deciding this was not the path for him, he made a conscious effort to pursuing something that he was more passionate about, even though at that stage he couldn’t see any way of making money from it. At the time, Daniel had been doing a lot of work researching local history and speaking to relatives of people from nearby towns and documenting their journeys and achievements and recording them on devices that would play next to statues in parks, or graves in cemeteries. This soon this became a full-time effort to get these stories out to the general public.

As his reputation grew, Daniel attracted media attention and gained a lot of traction through schools wanting to take their students on history tours. This expanded over time to people from all walks of life wanting to learn more. Fast forward to today and Daniel is the owner and operator of Sydney History Tours (, Virtual History Australia ( and Sydney Ghost Tours (, all of which aim to educate and entertain their audience that now come from around the world. Daniel’s story is one of resilience and never giving up. He shares a lot of insights for every aspiring business owner/entrepreneur that has a dream or a passion and more importantly shares his simple philosophy on how to make it happen!
