Hello, I’m Hope Brookins. I’m a meeting and event planner, entrepreneur, and online business strategist. And I’m a millennial.
I started planning events and businesses at a young age and my obsession for both has only grown. While my event planning technically began as a toddler sketching event layouts with crayons, I started professional planning events at age 18. By the time I was 19, I had planned events for a former President of the United States and over 14 United States Congressmen. Since then I’ve planned nearly every type of event and in 2015 I launched The Brookins Agency. Simply put, I know how to throw unforgettable parties.
Planning events taught me one thing. . .
Every day should be a party.
From private business masterminds in Paris to the little celebration I throw when my Amazon package arrives, I turn everyday into a party. My planning doesn’t stop at events, whether it is a new business I want to launch (there is a long list) or designing an intentional life, I make things happen.
People ask me all the time how I got started. It certainly isn’t the traditional entrepreneurial story, but it’s my story.
About 7 years ago now, my mom, 3 younger siblings, and I left a domestic violence situation after a series of traumatic events. Leaving was easier than we expected. Finding a new house on the other hand wasn’t.
Houses were REALLY expensive. And unless all five of us wanted to share two bedrooms, we only had one option.
We decided we’d build our own house. Sans construction crew.
A bank loan, a delivery of 1,500+ concrete block, an ER trip, and a lot of YouTube videos later, our stubbornness and desperation pulled us through. We did what many (and let’s be honest any even slightly sane person) told us was impossible.
We built a house. And yes, it is still standing.
After you build a house you start to feel like you can do anything.
But then if your mom writes and sells a book about you building your own house (yeah, that happened), you know for sure nothing is impossible. Whether I’m planning events on tropical islands or building the business of my dreams, my life feels truly limitless.
