New Freight Brokers with Confidance

Brad Lingo is the instructor for our California Freight Broker/Agent course. He recently graduated a great group of students who loved the course, learned a lot and left with confidence.  Here are some of the testimonials the graduates so graciously wrote on their experience: 

I love this course!  Brad was a pleasure and made me enjoy each day.  I am confident I know what I need to do to succeed.  Thank you.  –Kanwai

Great class.  The instructor gave out very useful information.  I feel I have a better understanding of that it takes to be a broker. I would recommend this training to everyone who wants to be a broker.  --Loretta Salgado

Brad is an excellent teacher who provides a lot of his own knowledge to the students, which is very helpful.  He also keeps the class entertained...  –Sinthia Rodriquez

I came into this course with absolutely zero knowledge in the industry.  The course was so informative and packed with information.  I am now walking away feeling completely comfortable beginning our freight brokerage and assisting clients confidently.  Brad is amazing and made this course a wonderful experience for me.   --Ashlee Wardlow

Brooke Transportation Training Solutions has live courses every month training professionals in the transportation industry.  Our basic course takes one week to complete.  Our advanced course takes a week as well.  So in two weeks time a student has the education, inspiration and plan of action ready to begin a fast paced career as a freight broker, freight broker agent and many other positions in the freight industry.

A New Career in a Week

Can you really, I mean really prepare for a new career in a week?  Sounds too good to be true?

Our basic freight broker training course is a one week course.  Many of our students continue on and take our advanced course the week after the first course.   We recently received this testimonial from a gentlemen who attended our week long Freight Broker Training Course:

I knew nothing about the transportation training/freight broker business.  After going through this course I feel great about starting out as a freight broker/agent.

Outstanding course with great instructors.  --  Chad Mingo

Well thanks Chad.  Our goal at Brooke Transportation Training is to teach a very thorough course.  We have had many similar testimonials from students over the years.  We pack the week with great information on freight brokering.  We engage our students into actual freight brokering calls.  Many actually make their first sale while in class. 

So are you interested in a new adventure, a new career, a new future?  Then join us at a live course in Texas, North Carolina, Florida, or California or an online course from anywhere.

We purpose to train new freight brokers with integrity and inspiration.  Have questions or wanna sign up?  Read our website or call me.

Moving forward,

How to Pick a School

Education can be quite expensive so when you choose to learn more you need to make a good pick.  You need to do some research.   Read any testimonials from students that have studied what you are going to study.  Talk to graduates to find out what they liked and didn't like about where they were educated.  Pick a program that can prepare you for a career that will have value.  Go into as little debt as possible.

I have been running my freight broker training school for over a decades now.  In my time I've seen schools come and go.  The schools that are just in it for the money, focus on getting students money more than educating those students.  I started my freight broker school after a successful career as a freight broker.  I wanted to give back to the industry by training new freight brokers in what gave me success.  I don't just teach how to do freight brokering.  I also teach the value of integrity.  I am so honored when graduates comment that they were inspired and they were taught. 

We are so thankful that Brooke Transportation Training Solutions earned an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.  We have worked diligently to improve our school, find excellent instructors and keep up with our students.  We are interested in the success of our graduates so we keep up with them and encourage them.

If you are looking for training in the transportation industry give me a call.  I will answer any questions you have with all honesty.  If you are a graduate of our school and need some encouragement give me a call.  If you learned freight brokering elsewhere I'd love to talk with you as well.

Moving forward,

Jeff Roach

Get Rich

I grew up financially challenged.  But we were rich in experiences, rich in family and rich in love.  I have amazing parents who worked hard at their jobs and raised us well but they weren't rich in the world's eyes. 

I did spend a season of my career focusing on the dollar.  Then I realized that is not where the true richness of life comes.  The Christmas season is a time to focus on the richness of your life.  Not rich in money but rather rich in savoring life, your blessings.  I founded my school on the idea that you can make a good income by focusing on integrity and helping your customer get what they need to succeed.   I started working out of my garage and made a million.  Not overnight but I have made more than a million as a freight broker.  I truly love this industry. So how did I do it?

First, don’t count on making money right away but know that if you make 50 calls you have a chance to at least make 250.00 that day.  In the sales world we are taught it takes 10 pitches before you make a sale.  Mentally be prepared to make those calls for 3 months, that is 3000 prospect calls.  Have 6 months living expenses put away.  Every big success story kept at it for 5 years.  Keep at something for 5 years you will succeed.  In our get rich quick, instant gratitude living from paycheck to paycheck society 5 years seems like an eternity, but stay working hard and you will profit.

In our course we have the flying 5 buck activity.  I ask a student to come to the front of the class, pick up the phone, then hang it up.  I then explained that if 50 calls = $250.00 each call is worth $5.00.  A “yes” or a “no” call pay the same. I then ask the student to start making calls. Every time they make one -I throw a five dollar bill on the table.  When cash starts flying the student’s phone calling fear turns to making as many calls as they can.

It is so funny because their fear disappears and they just go straight to making as many calls as they can.

Come to class learn that and more.  Invest in yourself, it will pay off. 

I want to educate and motivate the go getters and the go givers.
Moving forward,

Jeff  Roach
