After her incredible story went viral, Cara Brookins became a renowned thought leader in the science of motivation, empowering corporate audiences to overcome obstacles and thrive in any situation.

I help people do hard things and motivate them to push past fear and take the first step toward building the life they want. Cara Brookins

Cara Brookins is best known as the mom who built her own house with her kids using YouTube Tutorials. As a software analyst with no construction experience, Cara was the least likely person to build anything—let alone a house. With her eager construction crew consisting of her four young children, Brookins laid the block, framed  the walls, and even  ran the plumbing  and gas lines for her 3,500 square foot house. She shared her story in her #1 bestselling memoir, Rise: How a House Built a Family.

Cara’s incredible story of teamwork and resilience amassed more than two billion views in over 100 countries in two weeks’ time. Media outlets including The New York Times, People Magazine, The Today Show, NBC, CBS News, CNN, and many more have featured Cara's compelling journey, and it’s been optioned for film, television, and reality television.

The idea that ordinary people can do extraordinary things is a constant in Cara’s work, and it inspired her latest self-help book, Unstuck: End Procrastination Using The Ancient Psychology Behind How-To Videos.

In her impactful keynotes, Cara shares clear, actionable strategies that inspire businesses and individuals worldwide to overcome odds that seem insurmountable and to thrive in any situation—particularly in times of change and uncertainty.
