Virginia [00:00:01] Welcome to Entrepreneur Conundrum with Virginia Purnell. Where growing entrepreneurs share how they get visible online.
Virginia [00:00:09] Hi, everyone. Today I’m talking with Brooke Adams about how she helps others with their mindset and manifestations. Brooke is a Bob Proctor mindset coach and manifestation expert, a cat lover who loves to dance, workout, and read. Welcome, Brooke.
Brooke [00:00:26] Hey, thanks, Virginia. Thank you so much for having me on. I’m super excited to be here with you today. So thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Virginia [00:00:33] You’re welcome.
Virginia [00:00:35] I’m glad to have you here.
Brooke [00:00:39] I’m glad we both woke up this morning. Right.
Virginia [00:00:41] Right. Good day on that one.
Virginia [00:00:47] Tell us a little bit about yourself, how you became an entrepreneur.
Brooke [00:00:53] Yeah, absolutely. I would love to do that. So I am twenty nine years old. I have been an entrepreneur for a while now. I started out in the network marketing business and that was the first time I had really seen people winning outside of a job. Right. Because I had grown up with the notion that I needed to go to school.
Brooke [00:01:16] I needed to get a good job. I needed to get a good job with benefits so that I could possibly retire right when I like 60, 65. And so that was the way I was really raised and brought up. So seeing network marketing was a big shift for me because it allowed me to see that there was other ways to earn money besides doing what I had been taught to do. So it was really cool because it started to open up my mind to that fact. But then I went back and I fell back into my comfort zone and I started waiting tables and I waited tables for years and years and years and years because it was something that was comfortable for me to do. But I always kind of had that inkling inside that was like, oh my gosh, like I want to do something more like I am not 100 percent satisfied doing this, you know, and I didn’t have any other skills because I only went to college for two years. So it was like, what am I going to do? You know? And then I got introduced to day trading and how to trade the forex markets and things like that, and I was like, OK, like this is it. You know, it’s like I’m going to crush it. This is what I’m going to do. And I didn’t crush it. I came out and I wasn’t seeing the results that I wanted to see. And it was so frustrating to me because I was like I knew that I had all the information I needed, but I wasn’t where I wanted to be. So in that process, I got to see Bob Proctor live at one of our Convit convention. And Bob Proctor is just an amazing man. He knows so much on personal growth and development. And I knew that what he was talking about is what I needed to learn. So I started to take some of his courses online and I started to study his information. And the more and more I studied it, the more and more I was like, I love it. You know, I love this information. And I was talking to my boyfriend one day and he was like, I was just talk, talk, talking about it. And he’s just kind of looking at me because he doesn’t know what I’m talking about.
Brooke [00:03:12] And the smile on his face, you know, I’m like, OK, like, why are you smiling at me like that?
Brooke [00:03:17] He’s like, well, you’re just so passionate when you talk about it. And I think in that instance it was, oh my gosh. Like, Brooke, this is what you should be doing and you should be teaching this to other people. And so that’s what I did. I became a consultant and I got furloughed from my job and, you know, the beginning of this year. And I was like, well, it’s time to run with it. Let’s do it.
Brooke [00:03:35] You know, a lot of fun.
Virginia [00:03:40] Good. What do you like most about the work that you do?
Brooke [00:03:47] I think I like that I get to have the freedom that I always wanted to experience. Like I get to I’m the boss, right? So I can make up when I want to work and when I want to go have my nails done or when I want to go shopping or when I want to go out to eat or when I want to just chill at home with my boyfriend. I get to pick when I want to work and when I want to have fun. And this business allows me to do that. But not only that, I get to help other people do exactly what they want to do. I help them, you know, step into that unique power that we all have within us and bring that to the surface, because by doing that, we can all essentially be do or have absolutely anything that we want. It’s just about changing a few little things inside of us to see our world completely shift on the outside. So I think that’s really satisfying as well, just being able to help people.
Virginia [00:04:42] So we’ll be able to see them grow and help them to see them reach their poles and stuff, too.
Brooke [00:04:51] Yeah, it’s super gratifying. I mean, when you have somebody come up to you and say, hey, like, thank you, I can’t help it. Like, that is like one of the best feelings in the world.
Virginia [00:05:03] What are some of the most common mistakes that you see your clients making?
Brooke [00:05:09] Yeah, I think the biggest mistake is that we’re trying to outperform the image that we have of ourselves inside. So, like, we carry this picture that we have of ourselves and this is brought about through our, you know, whole life. Right. Like, we see ourselves as a certain person, whether that person is a failure or a success, maybe, you know, somewhere in between.
Brooke [00:05:31] Right. Like, we have this picture on the inside. And a lot of the times it’s like it’s like trying to lose weight, but not being able to because you don’t see yourself as a person that can lose weight. You’re constantly telling yourself. Well, I can’t lose weight because of this or that, or you’re giving excuse after excuse. Right. And you’re not losing the weight because of it. So you actually have to, like, shift our mindset and we have to start actually seeing ourselves as a person we want to become. So we need to start seeing ourselves as a person that loses weight very easy, that enjoys, you know, working out, that enjoys eating, you know, the proper foods in the proper quantities. And so what I do is I really help people go from like where they are right now and where they want to be in, you know, six months to 12 months down the line. So that’s what I really hope people do.
Virginia [00:06:25] Who an ideal client for you?
Brooke [00:06:29] I love that question, Virginia, because I have been working on this for so long. Because first, when I started this, I love that you bring it up because when I started this journey, I was like, oh, my gosh, this information can help everybody right now.
Brooke [00:06:42] But my mind was like, everybody needs this information. But then when I really get to think about it, I think about my background and who I really want to help. Right. It’s gonna be female network marketers who have seen some success in that business. But they’re not they’re not able to crack that like six figures. Right. Or seven figures. You know, maybe they’re trying to get there and they just can’t quite get there. And that’s just all due to their mindset. So those are the people that I love to work with because I’ve been there like I’ve been that struggling network marketer that wasn’t seeing the success I wanted. So I know how it feels to be there. And I also know how valuable this information is and how much it can help them. And so those are the people that I really love to work with and love to help.
Virginia [00:07:31] Awesome. I love how you took the time to narrow it down.
Brooke [00:07:36] Yeah, it was super important, I think. And I think that’s with any business in all honesty. Like, you have to know your who you want to talk to because your message is gonna be different if I’m talking to a man versus a woman. My marketing my message is going to be completely different. Right now it doesn’t. That’s super important.
Virginia [00:07:57] Right. And it doesn’t mean it just because your ideal client is a woman.
Virginia [00:08:03] It doesn’t mean that you’re not going to recognize any the other guys out there either. Right.
Brooke [00:08:10] One hundred percent. I agree. You know, it’s so funny that you say that, too, because growing up, I was always more friends. I had a lot of friends. Even now, like I have a friend, he’s very he’s my very close friend. And so it’s like I can relate to that as well, because, you know, I can. They have the same struggles. Does that make sense that they’re going through the same thing that their women are going through? Right. The women may just connect with me a little bit more because I’m also a woman. So but the great thing is that, yes, like this information can be used by anybody.
Virginia [00:08:46] Now, I think you target way more people when you do it like that rather than. Oh, I help everyone. Because if you’re like, yeah, target for massive, you hit No one because I can resonate with your method.
Brooke [00:08:58] I agree. I agree 100 percent. Yes.
Virginia [00:09:02] So these female network marketers, how do they generally find you.
Brooke [00:09:07] At the most? Is it the best way? yes, go ahead.
Virginia [00:09:11] Oh, I was just gonna ask, is it more like referrals or how do they find you?
Brooke [00:09:17] Yeah. There’s a couple of different ways. And mainly right now I am all online, so I’m on Facebook. This is my number one platform that I use right now to generate leads. There are so many people that use Facebook and there are so many groups and connections and things like that that you can find people you know. So it’s actually super easy to be able to go on to Facebook, find a group with a lot of female entrepreneurs or female network marketers more specifically. And you can actually just have a conversation with them, because I don’t know the Virginia like. Have you ever just talked to somebody? And right off the bat you were like, I like this person.
Virginia [00:10:02] Yes.
Brooke [00:10:03] Right. That’s what I mean. Like, we have to make a connection. It’s not just about sending 100 messages a day. Like, I can send messages all day, every day. But the chances of me actually like making a human connection with them on a deeper level is going to be very slim if I haven’t gotten to know them. If I’m not asking them how their day was, if I’m not creating that genuine rapport with people before, I’m just like, hey, like come join my group. Right. So I think that’s definitely a key is to, you know, find those people that you resonate with and make that friendship with them and then see if you can help them.
Virginia [00:10:46] Yeah, its more personable that way too right?
Brooke [00:10:50] Yeah, I think that’s one thing that we have to realize, like during this coded, you know, everything, you can’t go out and really talk to people very much anymore, you know? So how else are we going to connect? You know, and people are missing that connection. Like I’m a social butterfly. So I’ll talk to anybody.
Brooke [00:11:09] So for me, being at home, it’s been hard because I don’t get to make those human connections like I used to when I was able to go out and how, you know, go eat at a restaurant bar and be able to talk to the person next to me. Right. Because there’s nobody sitting next to me anymore like that. So we have to find new ways to connect. And I think people are missing that. You know, people miss that human connection. People want to connect, you know, but they don’t want to connect and they want to connect on a deeper level, you know. And I think that’s so important.
Virginia [00:11:39] Right. What is a big goal for you in the next one to two years.
Brooke [00:11:43] Yes. Oh, my gosh. I have so many that I’m gonna keep it super, super simple. So my huge goal within the next year to hit a million and then I want to be able to hit a million. I really need to be able to help at least one hundred and fifty women achieve their goals. So, you know, it’s not just about me making the money, but it’s about me really giving back and being of the help other people achieve what they want to achieve, because that’s really my whole purpose of what I do, is being able to help them get to where they want to get in, essentially by doing that. Right, by helping them. I’m going to get where I want to be. Right. If you don’t help other people, it’s very hard to really hit where you want to hit and where you want to go. And all of that’s especially in network marketing, you know, because most of the time you’re selling a product or service, you know, and that the whole goal is to help people. And so I think just realizing that is going to really help somebody out there be like, yeah, you’re right. Like, the more people I help, the more I’m helping myself as well.
Virginia [00:12:53] You know, how would that goal change your business?
Brooke [00:12:57] Oh, man, it would change it so much because the it’s not all about the money, it’s about what the money can get you. Right. So, like, I can use that money to, you know, put on retreat’s if I want to. I can use that money to get on better trainings. Have better guest on my show. Right. And do all of those things to help just improve the service that I’m putting out ultimately. Right. Because that’s the whole goal is to make sure that I’m giving the best of the best. Right. And so I think money in that aspect really, really helps me be able to give back to my business with all sorts of different things. Right. So that’s where I really feel like it would just be completely different. Like it it would be amazing.
Virginia [00:13:52] What do you think, roadblock for stopping you from getting there?
Brooke [00:13:57] Yeah, I think this is a robock for everybody. This is something that we are constantly working on. I think it’s all about mindset. Because the like I was saying earlier, if we can’t see it ourselves, like actually seeing ourselves in that position, how are we ever supposed to get to where we want to go? It’s like getting in your car and being like, well, I want to go west. And I’m like, okay, great. Like where West? Because when you go west, you can go west some more.
Virginia [00:14:33] Well not in your car. If you start where you start. Right. Right. Right. Right. Forget it.
Brooke [00:14:38] But you know what I mean. Like I’m in Texas. So if I go west, you know, a little valley. Right.
Brooke [00:14:44] I’ve got a little bit a ways to go to till I get to get to Cali. But you have to know your destination, right? So I think that is really, really big about having that big destination that you want to get to. And then you have to be able to picture it yourself already with everything that you would have in your life if that destination was already here right now. Right. Like, if you were already in that destination place, what would your life look like? And that includes everything from where do you want to live? How do you want your business to look like? Who do you want to be like yourself? You know, so I think that’s the biggest thing right now for me is I’m still working on that. I’m still working on that place. Who am I? Has a millionaire. What does Brooke Adams do when she’s a millionaire? And so for me, that’s the biggest roadblock is I have to get myself to be able to 100 percent believe that I am that person because it’s just about changing a few little things. And I know that. So that’s the biggest roadblock for me, is just really having the right mindset, just like everything else.
Virginia [00:15:53] So true. What’s working for you? To attract more business.
Brooke [00:15:57] Woo! Yeah. There’s actually a couple things that I can talk about under this category as far as what’s working for me. Yes, I do Facebook a lot and I like to go in. I like to make connections with obviously female network marketers. That’s who I want to work with. So those are the people that I go online and I find groups that they’re in and things like that.
Brooke [00:16:23] So I think that that are really, really good thing as well. But another thing that you really have to take into account is not necessarily what I’m doing physically the work physically, but what am I doing mentally every day as well. And so I think that is a huge part of it. So I’m gonna kind of go through my morning routine because I feel like this might help some people and because it does have a little bit of mindset work in there as well. So the first thing that I do when I wake up in the morning is I do a meditation. And the reason that I do a meditation or a visualization, whatever you want to call it, is that I’m actually putting myself in the place that I want to be. And I talked about how important that is to be able to see yourself in the place that you want to be. So by practicing meditation or visualization, you’re actually honing in on your imagination skills. You’re starting to strengthen those skills where you can see your picture more and more clearly every single time that you do it. So I always start with a meditation. And then the second thing that I do is I, I do gratitude in the morning. Gratitude is so extremely important. I write down 10 things that I’m grateful for and I usually break it off with five things that I already have in my life. So what am I grateful for right now here in this moment that I already have? And that can be everything from being able to have a seat because I live in Texas. Right. To, you know, being very thankful that I get to work from home or maybe that my Wi-Fi works without me having to know how it works.
Brooke [00:17:51] Right. I don’t know. I think about it.
Brooke [00:17:54] Right. And then I also do things that I want to have in my future. Right. So I’m thankful for all my future customers and clients. I’m very thankful for, you know, my millionaire self. And I’m very thankful that I get to give back to charity and be able to help my family and all of those things. So I do gratitude every single day. And I do that along with writing out my big goal for the year.
Brooke [00:18:20] And I think writing out your goal further, your actually helps you be like, oh my gosh, that is what I want. And what does this look like in its search your brain to think. What would my life look like? Who would I? You know, you ask yourself these questions. So I always do gratitude. And then I do two other things. My one is going to be study. I always study something that’s going to help me grow and learn and just really absorb that information. Every single day. And then the second thing that I do is I read. I’d love to read even if it’s just for 10 to 15 minutes a day. Just a chapter, a day of some book that is going to help me. Then I’m going to read it as information is locked up in these books. Right. That’s where Bob Proctor gets his information from. Right. He got it from books and from audios. And it’s the same way for me. So I think that that’s super important to note, that you have to do the work on yourself just as much as the work that you’re putting out on the outside, on the Web, on your marketing, on whatever else you’re doing in your business. You have to do both equally or else you’re going to find that you’re not going to get the results that you want.
Virginia [00:19:36] How long does your morning routine take?
Brooke [00:19:40] So it’s usually a 30 minute visualization process and then it’s 30 minutes to write down my gratitude. And my goal, and then it’s anywhere from 15 to 20 minutes reading and then it’s about 30 minutes to study. So about two hours or so to do all of that in the morning. And then, you know, I always encourage me by I love to workout. So, you know, that’s something that I do three to four times a week as well. So, you know, I know a lot of people are into fitness right now. So if you wanted to, like, add that into your morning routine, I would absolutely encourage it. I know that it helps me on days when I workout. I just have more energy, you know? So that’s definitely something that they could throw in there as well.
Virginia [00:20:28] I always find it a challenge because people are like especially as a mom, they’re like, well, to get you time, just get up an hour before the kids are really like.
Brooke [00:20:40] I could wake up at 5:00 a.m.
Virginia [00:20:42] It’s like yesterday my son got up at 5:00.
Virginia [00:20:45] Not only that, but my one year old. I end up constantly throughout the night with her like this morning.
Virginia [00:20:51] The last time I was up with her was at four, and we want me to get up at 2:00. For that, I have more time for sure. I’m like, that’s not doable.
Brooke [00:21:02] And I totally understand. And I call it a morning routine, Virginia. But the great thing is you can adapt this to your life, right? Like, maybe you only get 30 minutes in the morning. So pick one thing to do, right? Like pick gratitude or pick meditation. I like to do those things more early. Because you’re kind of in that sleepy state, especially for like a visualization. But then you can just take time throughout your day. Right. Maybe you’re in the car for 20 minutes a day because you commute to a job, right? Like put on an automobile book. Forget having to, like, pick up a physical book, put it on in the car. Right. And then you’re doing that while you’re doing something else. Right. Like you’re incorporating into your schedule like you were already going to be doing the driving. So just adding that in. It’s like an easy little thing. Right. So there’s totally ways that you can adapt it. Yeah. Yeah, you can multitask. It’s just like working out and listening to a song. Right. Yeah. Like you can do that with a book to.
Virginia [00:22:03] With all the successes achieved. What’s your biggest challenge?
Brooke [00:22:09] Getting out of my own way, I would like just having faith that every single decision that I make is the right one, because I think a lot of us fear making decisions because we’re like, oh, my gosh, what if it doesn’t work? How? Mike, I don’t know what I’m going to do. You know, if it doesn’t work out and we start to, like, feed ourselves that negativity. Right. When in reality, that hasn’t even happened yet. Right. Like, why are we thinking about something that hasn’t even happened yet? Like, we need to learn to be like, OK.
Brooke [00:22:45] Like, no, I’m just gonna get out of my own way and I’m just going to do it in by doing whatever it is that you want to do. You’re going to gain so much from that, because experience is going to help you learn whether you feel like you failed or succeeded. You’re going to learn either way. Right.
Virginia [00:23:03] That discussion going to it.
Brooke [00:23:05] Exactly. You’re going to either learn that feeling of success and what you did to get there, or you’re going to figure out that whatever you were doing, you need to tweak. Right. You need to do something maybe just slightly different. Right. And so I always say life is full of lessons, not Feigley years, but lessons. The only reason you ever fail at something is if you quit.
Brooke [00:23:37] Exactly. Exactly. And that’s really happy. You have to look at this, especially if you have a business or something, because guess what? Mistakes are going to be made.
Brooke [00:23:48] It’s just part of it.
Brooke [00:23:51] It’s how you take those mistakes. Right. Are you going to look at them as lessons that you can learn from and grow from? Are you going to let them? Absolutely, Crush your soul.
Brooke [00:23:59] because you have the option.
Virginia [00:24:03] So on this note, what’s the best advice you have ever received?
Brooke [00:24:12] That is a great, great, great question. Oh, my gosh. Wow. And the best advice I’ve ever received. I think that. You know, Bob, he is a great man and he’s full of different, you know, little tidbits and things like that and. He’s just always talking about how, you know, we’re.
Brooke [00:24:42] Born to be rich and worked, we have this natural, you know, ability to do that and everybody is created, you know, in God’s image or in the universe’s image, like whatever you want to call it. And so, you know, I think the best advice is that, you know, just to believe in myself. Have that belief that if I’m going to believe in anything in this world, it’s going to be the belief that I can I can do it, I can succeed. And by having that belief, you automatically get rid of your fears in the process. So I think just caring, unwavering faith. It’s probably the best advice because that gets rid of everything else, all the doubts, all the worries, all the fears, they just go away. It’s like a no. You just know. Right. You feel at peace because you know, you can.
Virginia [00:25:38] So what’s the best advice you have ever given?
Brooke [00:25:45] That’s a good one. I, I there’s so much right.
Virginia [00:25:49] wow you’ve given a lot of good.
Brooke [00:25:53] You know, I mean, I do try, but honestly, the best advice I think I’ve ever get is given is get yourself a mentor, get yourself a coach.
Brooke [00:26:04] And it’s a lot easier to do something with an accountability partner than to do it on your own. Right. Like, I don’t know if you’ve ever tried to, you know, start let’s just say you wanted to run a marathon. Right. But you’re not a runner. Chances of you actually getting out there and running are going to be kind of slim. Right. I know I used to be this way and I only bring it up because now I run more with a group. But I wouldn’t have ever done that if I didn’t have an accountability partner or an accountability group to help me get there. Right. And that’s just because we’re conditioned to do what we do right now on a day to day basis and it’s habit. So if we want to break some of those habits, we need somebody else. They are kind of pushing us along, being like, hey, did you do this for the day? Did you do this for the week? You said that this is what you wanted to accomplish. So, you know, I’m going to hold you accountable to that. And by doing that, you are really helping people create the habits that they need to create. So I think just really essentially, you know, being able to do that for somebody is just super, super important. So, like, get a mentor. Everybody had a mentor. Michael Jordan had a mentor. You know, Bob Proctor had a mentor. All of these successful people that you see out there, they’ve all had somebody else that will help them get their.
Virginia [00:27:25] They didn’t have to do it on their own. They didn’t do it on their own.
Brooke [00:27:29] Exactly, exactly. I don’t know really any successful person that wasn’t like, well, this person helped me out along the way, you know?
Virginia [00:27:40] Is there anything that you would like to share that I haven’t asked you?
Brooke [00:27:47] I don’t think so, I think we covered most of it. I’m just super excited that, you know, I got to be on here and then I got to share some of what I learned, because that’s just it’s so much fun for me, you know?
Virginia [00:28:00] Well, Brooke, I appreciate you being here with us today. How can people find out more about you and what you do?
Brooke [00:28:09] Yeah, absolutely. So the best way to find me right now is going to be on Facebook. So, of course, my name is Brooke Adams. You can definitely, obviously just search my profile. But the group is going to be really the best way to find me. It’s just, you know, it’s where I hang out online. So if you’re looking to find me, it’s called university and it’s going to be y o u and then it’s going to be anniversary after that. So university and then you’re going to see a journey of self discovery and success. So that is where I hang out. That’s where I put all my content.
Brooke [00:28:52] So find me in my group and I will definitely love to connect with anybody who is looking for that.
