Three Types of People Who Succeed in Our Course

Here at Brooke Training, we strive to motivate the go-getters and the go-givers. Our course is designed to help you take control of your future by starting a career as a freight broker or a freight broker agent, whether you have a background in logistics or are brand new to the industry.

There are three main types of individuals that succeed in our course. First, we have individuals with some industry experience who want to open and operate their own brokerages. Second, we have individuals with little to no previous experience who want to work as agents under an existing broker. And third, we have owner-operators who want to learn the business side of the industry, grow their trucking companies, and increase their profits.

Today, we’d like to share stories from some of our students in each of these three categories.

First, we have Ken Elrich. Ken is an example of one of the three types of people that come through our class - a highly motivated individual with experience in the industry, who has the resources and determination to open and operate an independent freight brokerage.

Ken landed in the trucking industry, working as a professional driver. About 17 years later, he started experiencing back problems and realized he needed to find a new line of work. After doing his research, Ken was able to use his Chapter 31 benefits to attend our training.

After graduating, Ken went on to open and operate his own successful brokerage, Black Ops Logistics. He now recruits our Veteran and non-veteran graduates to work for him as freight broker agents. Up to this day, he has on-boarded over 20 agents.

When my brokerage became legal on July 5th, 2017, I told Drake I was willing to take any and all Veterans from his classes. I wanted to offer my fellow vets an opportunity to work for themselves and without the pressures of a normal job. Now, I speak during training classes with Brooke’s instructors, Drake, Tish, and Susie. I get to help people where most in this industry would rather not. Jeff and Jan have made that possible for me. I am grateful for not only the education and great people who have instructed me, but also for the deep heartfelt warmth from everyone at Brooke, and the friendship.” - Ken Elrich

Next, we have Brandi Patterson. Brandi is an example of the second type of people who do well in our course - individuals with little to no previous experience in the industry, who go on to work as successful agents under an existing broker.

Before starting her career as a freight broker agent, Brandi was working as an interior designer. She knew she wanted to start a career in the transportation industry, but she didn’t know where to start. After taking our basic, advanced, and online course, she utilized the tools and skills that she learned in our training and got to work as a freight broker agent under an existing brokerage.

The success that Brandi has achieved is truly incredible. She found her niche and has created an empire working as an Auto Transportation Professional. Among all of our students who have gone on to work as agents, she’s among the top achievers because she gives 110% and has incredible energy, brilliance, and a “take no prisoners” attitude.

“I have always said, “Winners never lose and losers never win.” If you go into any industry with zero expectations, then what do you have to lose? Nothing. Go for it and you will be surprised at the opportunities that may open up to you.” - Brandi Patterson

Lastly, we have Scott Pitts. Scott is an example of an owner-operator who was striving to learn more about the business side of the trucking industry, grow his family’s trucking company, and increase their profits.

Scott attended our class earlier this year with his wife and daughter. Scott is an owner-operator who owns a trucking company with his family. He wanted to expand their knowledge in order to grow their business and increase their profits. After taking our course, Scott has been able to diversify his business, create additional income streams, and increase his gross income by 20%.

We have so much respect for our drivers and understand the significance of what they do for our industry, so we are very honored to be apart of Scott and his family’s journey to grow their business.

“As an owner/operator, I enrolled in the class to learn more about the brokering side of the trucking industry. From day one, the class is upbeat, engaging and very informative. All of the instructors truly care about you and want you to be successful. By the end of the week, you’ve gained many friendships and a network of people to help you along the way. If you are self-motivated and have an interest in the trucking industry, Brooke Transportation Training is the place to start your career.” - Scott Pitts

We hope you enjoyed learning a little bit more about the three types of individuals who succeed in our course. If you fall into one of these categories and are looking to either open your own brokerage, start a career as a freight broker agent, or grow your trucking company, we’d love to help you in any way we can.

Drake has been great with helping provide the tools and knowledge that is needed for me to prepare myself for the world of a Broker. This class has given me the information and the keys to getting my business started. All I have to do is stay motivated and ambitious about getting to where I want to be with the career. And that is a millionaire!” - Disarray Heard 

“Brooke has a great class that not only teaches you about the freight brokering industry, but it also puts you in position to be mentored by some of the best in the business. Schooling is the one thing but placing me in a position to work with several industry leaders is more valuable than any school I’ve ever been to.” - Thomas Williams

“This class was nothing short of amazing; from the instructor/mentors to my peers. Of all the schools I’ve attended and classes I’ve taken, none compare to the constant, hands-on group discussions with Mr. Drake at Brooke Training. What I really like though, everyone that spoke to our class has definitely given me reassurance, inspiration, and motivation going forth! Thanks, Brooke!” - Genie Patton

I had plenty of questions, but by the 4th day, I had all the answers to each and every one of them without even asking him. Loved it! I’m looking forward to my success so I can reach $1,000,000 and he will let me come speak with his class. Thank you.” - G. Lashounda

What a wonderful past few months we’ve had training some incredible individuals. Thanks to all our expert instructors for providing the absolute best training in the industry! Congrats to all of our graduates! The road to opportunity lies ahead. 

Read more below about what our students shared about their training experience. 

“Thank you Brooke Training for this opportunity. I own a small truck company with only two trucks and plan to expand my fleet. I believe that this training will make a significant difference in the decisions that I make to move forward. I have learned so much from the facilitators that are experts and the presenters with their real-life testimonials.” - Molina Manuel 

“First, I’d like to thank you all for this course. Tish, Drake, Leisa, Jeff - you guys were very professional, patient and courteous. I’ve learned so much from this course and I am certain that I will be successful in all my freight broker path. This is actually the second time I took this course. The first one was online and the second in-person. I will strongly recommend this course in live, simply because the instructor has an answer for all my questions, and trust me these guys are real veterans in this industry. I love the course and the instructors so much that I will go out of my way to let interested students or existing brokers to take their course through Brooke Training. You guys are the absolute best in this industry and it is an honor to be a part of your team.” - Jamal M. Thompson

“My experience at Brooke Training’s class has been an amazing five days. My first day was rough. My classmates were years ahead of me, but Drake was amazing at catching me up with the pack. On the second day, I was like, “Okay, okay, I got this. I know that word…I know what it means. Thank you, Jesus!” On the third day, Tish came in and helped put the whole class at ease. She answered every question we threw at her, which was a lot in our class. I was honestly blessed with the most amazing classmates and instructors.” - Valerie Simpson

“What a great birthday present to myself! The class has been phenomenal! We started out with Drake Sliver. He has been a wealth of knowledge, information, and being able to pick his brain with questions was great. The same goes for all instructors. Can’t say any one instructor was better than the other. All other training programs would be jealous! Even our webinars during the class, the instructors have been great. Now on Thursday, we had Brandi Patterson to go over the Auto Hauling of any type of vehicle from tanks to cars. That has perked me up. Now gotta save money to take her (advanced) class. I wish I had taken this class years ago! I’ve your thinking about taken broker training, don’t just think about it. Get er’ done! Don’t wait until your 58th birthday -it’s never too late! Sincerely” - Thomas A. Pearl

“Since coming to this class, a lot of information has been provided about the freight broker business. I like the fact that our class setting was a small setting, which gave me a chance to get a better feel for each individual. I also like the staff. Everyone seems to be genuine and really wants to see you succeed. I’ve learned quite a bit in a week’s time. This is only the beginning of how far this business is going to take me! I’m always looking for ways to improve and evolve and this course was right on time. I would highly recommend this course to anyone that wants to have more flexibility and make a pretty good cash flow. I’m a firm believer of, you can do whatever you put your mind to. Peace and happiness for you all. Thank you.” - Jamal Thompson

“I was very pleased with the basic class provided by Brooke Training. I come from another industry not related to transportation. I was able to gain a good understanding of the transportation industry, broker/agent roles, and which one I would benefit the most to launch my business. I believe I have gained a good understanding of the structure of a broker or agent business. I enjoyed most the real-life experiences and examples provided during the class and being able to interact with other students interest in starting a new business or expanding their business. Instructors, presenters and materials were great!” - Olga Lopez

“I took the freight broker class by Brooke. It’s an eye-opener and a great wide open market to be in. I will suggest this class to people from outside this market. The Sky is the limit.

Good Friday

Do you know why today is called Good Friday?  
Is it because it's good to have a day off? The end of the week is always anticipated. But, since today is also a holiday, we have twice the reason to celebrate. 

Go ahead and enjoy this special time with family and friends. Try to put your work aside and cherish this day with those close to your heart, but don’t let the day end with truly reflecting on why it is Good Friday. 

In Germany they call this day mourning Friday. Jesus was crucified, so the disciples mourned. But, I prefer calling it Good because the disciples mourning only lasted until Sunday when Jesus defeated death by rising from the dead.  

It is good for all who believe because forgiveness and salvation are theirs. Jesus lived a perfect life, died a horrific death, then rose again to defeat death. He did it all for us because of love. We can put our trust in Him.  So, it is the day of the greatest good.  The day one man sacrificed it all for the good of all mankind. 

Go out and have a good day, friends.

Moving forward,

Jeff Roach
