Martin Luther King

Today we celebrate a great man who left us too soon.  It is Martin Luther King Day.  Take a minute to reflect on the man, his legacy and impact on people of all. Martin Luther King was a man who knew how to bring people together.  As a man of God, He understood how to have reconciliation without compromise of values.  We need that kind of wisdom in life, in politics and in our families.  The  Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. was a devout pastor, transformational civil rights leader, and courageous activist. Reverend King changed the course of history by envisioning and articulating a path toward a better future for all Americans.

He bravely fought for equality and freedom.

Reverend King was living with his family in Montgomery, Alabama when Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a bus to a white man on December 5, 1955. As black leaders began mobilizing across the city, 26-year-old Martin Luther King Jr. was chosen to lead the first major nonviolent demonstration against segregation, the Montgomery Bus Boycott, as the spokesperson and president of the Montgomery Improvement Association. 

That is how he started on his calling to recognize all men are created equal.  As you continue on your own journey recognize your own ability to honor and encourage others, seek peace, and reconciliation.

Training for Disabled Vets

Brooke Transportation Training is the only school in the nation qualified under the "Chapter 31" program to train disabled veterans to become freight brokers. We work with you through your counselor to get you trained and equipped to be a freight broker or a freight broker agent.  In a month's time you can be trained and ready to start this exciting career.

A freight broker is an ideal job for a disabled vet.  A freight broker is skilled in matching freight loads with carriers to move those loads to the intended destination.  Since the job is done by phone and computer, a freight broker can easily make a great income from the comfort of their home.  Family members can help in the job.  In fact we often train a husband and wife at the same time so they both have the needed skills for success.

We would be honored to train you in one of our upcoming training courses. 

Thank you to all our veterans.  Thank you for sacrificing your time and talents in service to our country.  Thank you for protecting the unique freedoms we have in the United States of America. Thank you to your families as well. They have made great sacrifices as well.

Any questions?  Give me a call.

Moving forward,

When the Going Gets Tough...

...the tough get going.  The "going" is a bit tough right now, but there are people who are succeeding despite the odds. Zig Ziglar said that in every recession there's always somebody in every business doing well.  What matters is your mindset.  

Focus on your business not on the worries of the world.  In our training classes we meet tenacious individuals who know the best investments are investments in them selves.  If one source of income is lagging, come up with another source.  Here's a nice little story.

We use a small mail/copy place to help us with a lot of our transactions.  The owner is a tenacious man from India.  He works hard helping others with their administrative needs but decided he could take on more.  He could reinvest his profits into another money generator.   He brought his "can do" spirit  to our Freight Broker training class.

He spent 2 months training, acquiring equipment and licensing needed to be in freight brokerage. He now has 2 businesses.  He runs the freight brokerage from the back of his mail/copy center.  He says it is not a difficult business, you just have to learn it.  His attitude is amazing. He is not overwhelmed.  He took the time to be prepared.  He is the perfect person to be successful.  

Krish Dhanam author of An American Dream from and Indian Heart encourages immigrants to focus on the opportunities for everyone in America.  He is now a riveting  speaker sought out by businesses across the country.  He came to this land with $7.00 in his pocket.  He found great success here.

Our founding fathers traveled oceans to get to America.  They came with a few belongings, some seeds in their pockets and a dream of a land ripe with potential.  

What can you do today to stir up the spirit that fights for success in uncharted lands?

If you are ever going to invest in yourself, do it now, don't be scared.  You may have failure but press on.  Failures are just one step closer to success.

Give me a call.  I am always open to help others who need encouragement on their road to success.

Moving forward,

Jeff Roach

Let's Shoot off Fireworks

I wish all of you a glorious celebration this weekend of the birth of our great nation.  There was a time when the United States was not a nation. Then it was an experiment to see if a democracy could succeed.  The experiment has been a success now for 100s of years.  Celebrate our independence, our wins and our losses.  Recognize that both our failures and our successes have built us up into the greatest nation on earth.  I am proud to be an American.  I pray we uphold the values our founding Fathers held as sacred. Thank those you know who have sacrificed to serve our country and keep us free.  


Fourth of July—also known as Independence Day or July 4th—has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941, but the tradition of Independence Day celebrations goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution. On July 2nd, 1776, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later delegates from the 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson. From 1776 to the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence, with festivities ranging from fireworks, parades and concerts to more casual family gatherings and barbecues. The Fourth of July 2022 is on Monday, July 4, 2022.

Enjoy some time with friends and family celebrating the joys in your life and recognizing those who love you and serve our great nation.

God Bless America.

Moving Forward,

Jeff Roach

Summer Celebrations

                                    Statue sculpted by Thomas Ball to commemorate the Emmancipation Proclamation

I hope you all had a Happy Father's Day yesterday.  I am proud to live in a country where freedom and family are a cause for celebration.  I am not a perfect father but God gave me 3 wonderful daughters, their husbands and 4 perfect granddaughters.  They are great gifts.

Yesterday was also Juneteenth, a celebration for when the enslaved people in Galveston, Texas found out they were free... more than two years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation.  News didn't spread as quickly then as it does now.  Union soldiers arrived in Galveston on June 19, 1865 declaring to all that slavery was abolished.  The former slaves immediately began to celebrate with prayer, feasting, song and dance.  It is the longest running African American holiday.   The day dedicated to celebrating that freedom spread through out the states.  

Texas declared Juneteenth as a state holiday in 1980.  It  didn't become a federal holiday until 2021 in the United States.  

Let's all celebrate family and freedom with jubilant prayer, dancing, feasting and singing.

Moving forward,

Jeff Roach

Transportation Jobs are plentiful.  

 Indeed is looking high and low for freight brokers.  I got an alert about  Dallas area Freight Broker jobs.  I scrolled through the pages of offerings.  Many said URGENT or multiple positions available and that was in the Dallas Fort Worth area only. The jobs are available across the country.  And many are work from home opportunities.  

The transportation industry has an abundance of jobs for those who are trained and willing to work.   We'd love to help you get prepared for a career as a freight broker, freight broker agent, dispatcher and other positions in the freight broker industry.  A certification from our school will do well for you.  You will have an advantage in job prospecting.   Those who get training hit the ground running.  They get a head start over those without training.  

On Fridays of our one week basic course Freight Brokers who are looking to hire agents come to recruit from our graduates. Those brokers know that the candidates they get from Brooke will be prepared for the position in skills and in enthusiasm.  

Join us in a class live or online soon to learn the skills needed to be in this great career.  Have any questions?  Give us a call.  I will answer your concerns with no pressure.  Hope to see you soon.  The sky is the limit with Brooke Transportation Training.
