What does “Sisu” mean?
Sisu is a Finnish term that cannot be fully translated into English, but loosely translates as strength of will, determination, perseverance, and acting rationally in the face of adversity. Sisu is not momentary courage, but the ability to sustain that courage.
Living life to our fullest potential takes courage and determination. It doesn’t just happen because we want it. Believe me, after years of wanting my life to improve without putting in the work, I realized it was time to understand what it would take to move beyond ‘neutral’ and feel inspired and empowered to finally live the life I had been dreaming about.
Who is Brooke?
I am a Certified Professional Life Coach and Positive Psychology Practitioner. I received my formal coach training through iPEC and I hold a certificate in Positive Psychology from The Flourishing Center. That all sounds very official and impressive, but the truth is I’m a great coach because I’ve experienced the good, the bad and the ugly that life has to offer. I am an imperfect mother who makes mistakes in raising my daughter, but I could not be more proud of her and the person she is becoming. I am a wife who could be doing much more to live up to the vows I took when I got married, but we love deeply and laugh daily. I am an executive who struggles with all the things that come with a leadership position, but I adore my job and my team. I am a friend, sister, and daughter who wishes I could spend more time with those I care most about, but the time I do spend with them, I treasure. I am imperfect. But, I am *finally* making it all work. And I can help you do the same.
I specialize in helping entrepreneurs who have a vision, but need help making it happen. I help busy professionals find fulfilling work-life balance while increasing positive habits in daily life. My philosophy is to work with you as long as you need, but to quickly give you the tools you need to live the life you desire without my help. Many coaches will require a long-term commitment, but I believe in sharing knowledge, tools and resources so you don’t invest any more than you truly need to. I only work with people who are highly motivated to change their lives. If this is you, let’s talk.
