"Cara built her talk from the ground up, to ensure it was a personalized message that resonated with our audience–and it did much more than that. She captivated the entire room, addressing themes that we wanted her to touch on (e.g. leadership, teamwork, resilience) and did it with humanity and humor…all the while making it so relatable and human.” ~Global Technology Group


Cara's Most Requested Topics
Build a Bigger Future

It was an incredibly big leap to build a house by watching YouTube tutorials, with a handful of teenagers and a toddler as her crew – but Cara Brookins did it anyway. As a result, she and her family learned that the only way to change your path is to shock yourself and everyone around you into a bigger vision of who you are and what you’re capable of doing.

Cara knows how difficult it is to step outside your comfort zone and take on enormous new responsibilities. And in order to succeed, she knows how vital it is to develop strategies that keep your energy focused and your mind engaged.

Using stories and photos of her unconventional construction site, Cara challenges audiences to look past restrictive boundaries. Audience members will learn to resist the urge to shrink goals – even when life and work present enormous hurdles.

Motivate your team to leap towards their challenges, and maintain positive momentum through disappointments, until they reach success.

Teamwork: Build High Performance teams

If your team members are inching toward small goals using careful, proven methods, you’re stuck yards behind and need a huge mindset shift to leap ahead. This program will teach you to identify the things holding you back and adopt a new way of reaching your goals.

Dynamic teams can produce dramatically better results than individuals – but it’s easy to get frustrated if everyone is working out of sync. Improving team culture will re-energize and empower every member.

Building a house from scratch with her four kids (two boys and two girls), by watching YouTube tutorials, was an incredible lesson in team culture. Cara’s family was barely able to communicate when they began, but by the end they could practically read each other’s minds. Discovering their weaknesses and highlighting their strengths pulled them through the toughest tasks.

Using real-life examples from the construction site with her kids, a team ranging from seventeen to two years old, Cara challenges audiences to take advantage of the wide range of skills and temperaments of a diverse team.

This program helps teams overcome challenges and think more creatively about processes outside their everyday tasks in order to set larger goals and imagine innovative ways to achieve them.
