Building a Burnout-Free Career and Life with Brooke Dukes

Transformation starts with a personal experience and in the case of our guest, Brooke Dukes, a life altering event 30,000 feet in the air.  Take a listen to this conversation with host Natalie Benamou and Brooke Dukes, CEO of BMD Consulting. Brooke is not only an accomplished leader but also a torchbearer for individuals striving to carve a career and life away from feeling the crush of burnout. 

Brooke takes us through her unique journey and shares profound insights from her new bestselling book, “Burn On, Not Out: Finding Fulfillment Beyond Success.” Her book provides a comprehensive guide to those who are in search of a delicate balance between professional triumph and personal contentment.

About Brooke

Brooke’s high-paced career in corporate reached a crossroads during her second pregnancy. Eight months pregnant and on bed rest, her boss gave her an ultimatum– fly 8 hours on an international flight to close a $500M deal or lose the entire commission she’d worked for months to earn. She closed the deal but went into labor on the return flight, 30,000 feet above ground on a plane full of men. Thankfully, the emergency response team that met them when they landed were able to stop the labor, ensuring she and her daughter, Ryann, were both healthy.
Endangering her unborn child for the sake of a commission became the wake-up call she needed to redefine her life and to start helping other women redefine theirs. From that point forward, Brooke has used her corporate background and her expertise in human behavior transformation to empower women to take back control of their lives, to align their career paths with their true values, and to realize that happiness leads to success–not the other way around.
