You Need a Mission Statement

 Running a business without a mission statement is aimless.  You need a target.  A mission statement communicates to everyone in the company your goal, your target.  A mission statement communicates to the world your goal, your target. 

My mission statement is:

To educate and motivate go-getters and go-givers.

James Cash Penney, the founder of JC Penney, created his around a simple mission statement: “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you” — the Golden Rule.

Mr. Penney said, “Give me a stock clerk with a goal, and I'll give you a man who will make history. Give me a man with no goals, and I'll give you a stock clerk.”

He understood the importance of having goals that reflect your mission. Having a clear mission allowed him to stay focused and build a successful business in which he could take pride. 

Missions statements are created to answer two questions: “Why do we do what we do?” And, “How can we do it?” 

Just as it’s important for your business to have a mission statement, it’s just as important to have a personal mission statement. Having a clear vision of your mission will enable you to reach your goals without compromising your values. 

So, how do you create a personal mission statement? Here are some things to consider:

1.) Determine what values are most important to you. This should be more than just about making money. Dig deep and explore your core values. What do you never want to compromise?

2.) Look at others whom you admire. Think of someone you admire - it may be a historical figure, a public figure, or even a friend or a family member. What qualities make them admirable in your eyes? Try to adopt those qualities into your mission statement. 

3.) Look in the mirror. Take a good long look at the person you see. How do you view yourself? How do others view you? What is working for you? Incorporate the characteristics that you are most proud of into your mission. Also, look at what you could do to improve. Incorporate character traits that you are currently lacking but are desirable to you. You’ll be surprised how well you improve on something once it is stated in your mission. 

4.) Hone in our your purpose. This one can be hard but think long and hard about this one. What is it that you are here for? It may be to build an empire. It may be to inspire others to live a better life. Or, it may be to work hard and take care of your loved ones. Your purpose is your choice, but make sure to be clear and decisive when determining what it is. 

5.) Create specific outcome-focused goals. Now that you’ve determined what’s important, who you want to model, who you want to be, and what your purpose is, it’s time to set some goals. When creating goals, be very specific and write them down. Create both short-term and long-term goals. Create goals for multiple areas of your life: business, relationships, financial, spiritual, health, and happiness. 

For example, here’s my mission statement:

Most important values to me: To live my life with integrity, humility, and grace.

Living like those I admire: To believe in others and mentor others - as others have believed in me and mentored me. 

Looking in the mirror: To give more than I take. To be thankful for the little things, and remember that every day is a gift. To put God first, family second, and business third.

Honing in on my purpose: To educate and motivate the go-getters and the go-givers, not for glory or money, but because we all need help.

Goals: To always be working to improve my spiritual life and my personal relationships. To exercise every day and eat healthy food to fuel my body. To grow my business and be innovative with new ideas to make a positive impact on as many individuals as possible.

Remember to always continue crafting and improving your mission statement. This is something you live by, and it truly holds power. We'd love to hear your personal mission statement with us in the comments. 

Moving Forward,

New Year New Career


Do you liked working from home?  Would you like to continue to work from home but looking for a new opportunity?  

In a few weeks you can be on your way to a brand new future, as a freight broker, freight broker agent or logistics coordinator in the transportation industry.  

Brooke training has a live remote class that has been extremely popular during the pandemic.    Live in- person classes are great, but of course take more some travel.   With our live remote classes you still get the benefit of an instructor to answer all your  questions, but all from the comfort of your own home.  We have scores of testimonials from our students all along the way in their course.  The basic course is one week, followed up by a week long advanced class.  

Our instructors walk you through a process to become successful as a freight broker or a freight broker agent.  The transportation industry is an exciting, fast paced industry with the potential for big income for anyone who wants to learn the industry.  

As we reach herd immunity, there is going to be more commerce than ever, more freight moving across the country and more opportunity for freight brokers to cash in.  The transportation industry has never been better.  Logistics professionals are in high demand.  The need for logistics professionals will only increase as our economy revs back up.  At the same time, most professionals have gotten used to working at home and they want to continue to work from home.  At Brooke Training we have, in my opinion, the best fast track training to get people working from home.  It is not a get rich quick deal but a truely the sky is the limit,  if the graduate puts in the work.  

Give me a call if this interests you at all.  No pressure, I will talk with you about your skills, your goals and  encourage you to find a great future.

Moving forward,

Jeff Roach

Martin Luther King, Jr

Today we celebrate the life and accomplishments of a great man,  Martin Luther King, Jr.  Although he didn't have a long life, he had a life of great impact that lives on in the dreams of others.  

He was a Baptist Preacher who had a dream.  A dream that is one of the founding principals of our great United States. A dream that was God designed:  All men are created equal.  We are all made in the image of God.  We all have great value, not based on what we've done but on who made us.  We have purpose.  We have a life to live out the best we can.  Too often we measure our success on what we have accomplished, the rewards and bonuses we have received. But true success comes from being the best you can be.  

Martin Luther King saw that America was not treating all men equal.  He felt God's call on his life to make a difference with his words and actions.   60 years after his assassination, we can still learn a lot about how to live our best life and encourage others to succeed from this man of integrity and courage.  He said many inspiring things. Here are a few of his great quotes:  

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."

"History will have to record the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people."

“A lie cannot live.” 

“If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward."

Take some time today to read more on the amazing life of this great man of American History.  Reflect on your own life, what is your purpose and how can you also make a positive impact in your piece of the world.

Moving forward,

Jeff Roach

Make Money as a Freight Broker

Welcome to 2021.  Now is a super great time to become a freight broker.  As we reach herd immunity there will be more commerce to move than ever.  The transportation industry has never been better.  Logistics professionals are in HIGH demand now because we have an economy that depends on freight moving across the nation.  The freight industry is only going to get better as more freight moves.  

At the same time, everyone is loving working from home.

Brooke Transportation Training truly has what I think is the best fast track training to get people working from home in a true career where the sky is the limit on your earning.  It is not a get rich quick path but success is theirs if they work the method we teach.

2020 was a challenging year, we all know that.  Let's use the resilience we learned to find happiness in this new year of promise. 

Have questions?  Give me a call.  No pressure, I just love to talk to others who are want to expand their horizons.

Moving forward,

Jeff Roach

Gifting Season


I am incredibly blessed with so many gifts.  I have been given so much grace in my life. I have an amazing wife, she has given me grace when I certainly didn't deserve it...but I guess that is what grace is: "unearned favor".  I have 3 stunning daughters, 3 fabulous granddaughters, a couple of super sons in-law and a miracle baby grand daughter on the way.  My life is full and for that I am thankful.

I absolutely love the business God has so graciously afforded me.  I get to work from my lakeside home with a gorgeous view of nature.  I have the opportunity to get to know so many gifted people from all walks of life that choose to come to our school.  In the process I spend most of my hours of every day hearing the life stories of these individuals.  And they have some fascinating stories.  Many veterans come through our school to learn a new trade.  I am intrigued by their resilience in learning a new way of life after the military.  I'm thrilled to hear of their success down the road. 

Take time this holiday season to thank those who love you well.  Thank those who challenge you.  And thank the Creator of all good gifts.  

At this time of year we celebrate the birth of My Messiah, Jesus Christ. 

No matter your beliefs, this is a glorious season with thrilling sights, sounds and foods.  Enjoy, be thankful and respectful of each other.  It may be a hard season for some, so be filled with compassion.  Every day is a gift, unwrap today and anticipate the gift of tomorrow.

Happy Holidays

Moving forward,

Jeff Roach
