Meet Brooke, cofounder of @beachcitysports, an Orange County adult sports league focused on bringing people together through healthy-living, sports, and networking events.

✨What are you passionate about?

“I am passionate about creating communities. In my life, having good friends and people that build me up around me has been the key to happiness and success. I enjoy creating events and communities that make it easy for people to plug in and meet new people.”

.

.

✨What does “mentoring” mean to you? “Mentoring means giving back. Usually to the next generation (but they could also be someone older). I was taught that you should spend 1/3 of your time with people that build you up or who are more advanced than you, 1/3 of your time with peers on your level, and 1/3 of your time helping people up.” .

.

✨How are you staying connected with others? “Earlier this year I was staying connected through creating virtual events and learning how to host on different virtual platforms. Currently, I am passionate about bringing back in-person outdoor events. I know this is going upstream of what many people are seeing on the media, but if our emphasis is on shifting our attention to physical health, mental wellness, improving our immune systems, and staying connected as communities, then healthy adults shouldn’t feel shame for doing healthy activities outdoors.

.

.

✨Is there someone in your life who has been a mentor to you in an unexpected way? “Honestly, there has been a lot of them. I always try to find the smartest person in the room and learn from them!” .

.

✨What is one positive thing you’ve seen come out of the challenges we have all been facing during 2020? “I think this year has been a hard reset for the world. We were forced to stop our daily activities and habits. It has given us an opportunity to rethink a new way of operating with the way the world is now. It’s been hard, but the businesses and individuals who can pivot, and evolve with the changes, will come out on top.” .

.

What other small businesses do you admire? “I admire the small businesses that are being creative and finding ways to stay open- including adult sports leagues like ours across North America. It’s been uplifting to collaborate and knowledge-share w/ @socialsportsnet throughout the year.”
