I have known of Brooke for a couple of years now through social media and by living in the same community, but only recently had the pleasure of meeting her when she signed up to update her head shots at our last morning of head shot sessions with hair and makeup provided by Liz of L Style Bar.
Brooke is a certified professional coach and coaches through her business Sisu Coaching. Her specialty is working with entrepreneurs and career professionals who want to see their vision and/or business idea become a reality. She focuses on that sometimes elusive balance between work and life, works with you through career or life changes and transitions, and helps you find ways that benefit you to identify, manage, and reduce stress in your life.
This isn’t the first time I’ve heard the Finnish word “Sisu”. I have a friend who named her daughter Sisu as her full first name. It’s a beautiful name and a word that perfectly relates and connects Brooke’s passion in working with others. Loosely translated from Finnish, Sisu is about sustaining courage through perseverance and determination, and acting rationally in the face of adversity. Transformation doesn’t happen overnight, nor does it happen without action. One must move and continue to move and act in order to see their dreams fulfilled.
