About Speaker Cara Brookins…

Cara Brookins is a self-empowerment speaker and bestselling author best known as “the mom who built her own house using YouTube tutorials”. Her from-the-trenches advice challenges people all over the world to do hard things.

Her memoir, Rise: How a House Built a Family, tells the story of building her 3500 square foot home with the help of her four young children by watching YouTube videos. The family escaped from domestic violence and used their strong will to build a better life to mix concrete, raise walls, and even run the plumbing and gas lines. Together, they built the house of their dreams and rebuilt their family.

Her story became a worldwide viral media sensation overnight and gained more than two billion media views. Rise has now been optioned to become a major motion picture with Escape Artists producers Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tish. An a-list actress is attached to play Cara, and A major studio purchased the rights, with Kate Angelo and Cara co-writing the script.

Cara was a computer programmer who knew nothing about construction when she began her house, but every victory proved that an unlikely team can overcome doubts and fears to do the extraordinary. This story of grit and determination does more than inspire as Cara shares actionable strategies to help every audience member achieve extraordinary goals.

 

Testimonials 4

  • “Cara is an extraordinary individual with an extraordinary story to match. Sometimes, telling the story can be a challenge in itself but that was not the case for Cara. She 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.”

  • “We knew Cara had an interesting story to tell and was a good speaker – we were wrong! She had an amazing story to share and was equally amazing at holding our audience and moving them. She inspired. She uplifted. And she thoroughly convinced our attendees that they can accomplish far more than they believe is possible. I would highly recommend Cara to any audience!”

  • “Working with Cara was so special.  She was engaged, responsive and gave her personal best to make sure that we had every detail covered.  When she arrived in town, Cara made each individual she met feel so comfortable – a very genuine, intelligent and inspirational woman.  We were blessed to have her for our event!”
