LOVE YOUR LIVING with Brooke Keeling
Empowering women to be ambitious. Helping you find your happy by creating a business, life and home that you LOVE.
Since I can remember, I have always seemed to take the world in differently. As a child, I remember sitting alone in the grass during family camping trips, watching the wind blow in the long prairie grass, soaking in the sun, feeling the wind on my face and breathing in the warm, summer air. I felt a deep connection to something bigger than myself, and a deep connection to others – especially when surrounded by the peacefulness of nature. I have always been very sentimental, sensitive, and aware of the energy around me. Deep thinking on life began as a child, and has shaped my journey to finding my way.
I grew up with lots of love and lots of dreaming. I used to flip through my Mom’s Victoria’s Secret magazines and say, “Someday I’ll wear a suit like that!” – referencing a business suit, of course. For me, work ethic has never been in short supply. I can hustle and I have. I run a very successful business that I have poured my life into over the last several years. This has ultimately brought me to the big question… for what??
My husband and I both have thriving businesses, a beautiful home, our beyond beautiful daughter and 2 pups (they too think they are our first-born daughters!). We have had the opportunity to say ‘yes’ to incredible experiences, travel and growth opportunities. I’m a goal-setter and believe you can always get better, be better, contribute more. That has only multiplied since having my daughter. As most mothers, I want to give her the world, but also teach her an unwavering work ethic. I have had to work really hard for what I have in my life, and I don’t regret that one bit. In fact, I am grateful for it.
So back to the big “for what??”
Not too long ago, I found myself in a place of work consuming my life. I got to a point where I really felt a loss of significance. I was trying so hard to fit in and be the person that I thought I needed to be in order to achieve success or be seen as “successful”. I was masking my identity, my true gifts. The very gifts that I was put on this earth to share. Not only that but I was taking all the joy out of my life. I didn’t go on vacation because I might lose business. I cut family holidays short. I was at my clients beck and call, sometimes with very little appreciation, or working hard for people with whom my values didn’t align. I lost me, and I lost my happy. I was trying to figure out if I even had time for children and a family. That was a very real and vulnerable place to be. And you know, this concept is all too real for women.
Work or career, choose one because you can’t have both. Guess what, I choose BOTH!
Having my daughter was one of the biggest blessings of my life. She pushed me to say no, to set boundaries and to figure out what was really important to me. Yes, I want to be wildly successful and achieve my dreams, but at what cost? What is life and success, without love? Without your happy? Success without fulfillment is the ultimate failure. I learned this the hard way.
I used to be a very insecure woman. Chasing after success and money thinking it would make me feel powerful and strong and people would respect me in a different way. Vom. I thought people would see me as “successful” and with that, I would be fulfilled. Double vom. I built a multiple six figure business the wrong way. FUCK. I failed, I learnt and I grew.
Today I have an incredible daughter that I LOVE, I have more time with my family than ever before, I have multiple businesses, generating multiple six figures, an incredible team aligned with incredible values. I have built a business and life that I love. And guess what, I am not done. There is always room for growth because as some of the greats say, “If you aren’t growing, you are dying”.
I am here to teach the lessons I have learned along the way, the lessons of failure through my own life and successes. I have spent the last several years on this journey. Pouring hundreds and thousands of tears, hours and dollars into myself, growth, empowerment, leadership, self development and learning the methods of the greatest of the great. This has changed my business and my life.
My mission in life is to empower women to be ambitious. Leading the way to more success in business and life than you could ever dream of. To teach my daughter by doing, showing her that anything is possible. Travel the world with my loves. Empower people to live their best life, all while loving my own life.
I believe that we were all put on this earth for a purpose. We have gifts within us that are meant to be shared with the world and that when we step into those gifts and allow the light inside us to be seen on the outside, magic happens. This is the foundation of Love your Living.
