Thank you for your amazing energy, tenacity and work with life’s diversities Brook. This is fantastic! You are so authentic and fun to listen to!
Authentic, BS-free zone all the way!
I hope you’ve read her book (Onward!) and joined her Facebook community (Brook’s First Marathon). If not, you’re missing out. If you have, you’re probably just like me and have been begging the Universe for a podcast already.
Brook is one of the most down-to-earth, sit-around-and-share-stories-over-vodka-tonics women I have ever connected with (digitally and in real life). Her podcasts step up the game even more with real conversations with real people. She says it like it is and creates a great space for her guests to do the same.
Stop reading this RIGHT NOW and subscribe. Whether you listen during your commute or your runs, the time will fly!
Brook’s personality shines through. I’m excited to hear more from her!
