For this month’s Champions Spotlight we’re happy and excited to introduce you to AdvoCare® Distributor Brooke Schneider.
Looking for more energy as a new mom, Brooke Schneider discovered AdvoCare when her best friend shared a Spark® with her in 2012. But it wasn’t until two years later when she realized AdvoCare was more than just an energy drink. The now nutrition coach and mom of two says she’s fallen in love with the health and wellness industry and wants to help others find solutions for their goals.
Favorite Spark® flavors
Favorite AdvoCare® memory
My favorite memory was speaking on stage with my husband at AT&T Stadium in front of 20,000 people at an AdvoCare event in 2016. It was an opportunity of a lifetime and one that I will remember forever.
How did you discover AdvoCare®?
My best friend shared a Spark® with me in 2012, and I started taking the products. But it wasn’t until 2014 when I began sharing the products with others. I have been sharing AdvoCare ever since, and I’ve fallen in love with the health and wellness industry.
How did you get started sharing the products?
I used social media a lot. I was a new mom and surrounded by many new moms. They were needing energy, and so I asked what they were doing. I had pretty amazing results with the products, so I shared my success, following the guidelines through the 24-Day JumpStart®. That sparked a lot of interest resulting in me sending out a ton of samples! One time I went to the post office with 35 samples to mail out.
How do you share the products today?
Most people that I know are very aware that I am involved in the health and wellness industry, and if they don’t know me, they quickly learn my passion. But like most things in life, it is all about timing. Whether on social media or in person, AdvoCare often gets woven into a conversation. I like to learn more about what people want and then help them find a solution that works best for them. I never take a one-size-fits-all approach, and I make sure to respect where a person is at – their needs always come before mine.
What is your number one tip for sharing AdvoCare®?
My best advice when sharing AdvoCare is sharing it with passion. People who know you, know your heart – and if your heart is in the message, they will trust what you have to say.
What is your top tip for sharing AdvoCare® on social media?
Using social media is such a powerful tool. It’s important to incorporate your life into your posts. Don’t just share the products! Helping your audience see who you are helps them become more interested in what you do. I am very real on social media – others see my role as a mom, wife, and runner AND my love for AdvoCare. When people see other parts of your life, they are more invested in your life and trust you more.
How has AdvoCare® impacted your family?
AdvoCare has not only helped us all become more aware of what we put into our bodies, but it has also allowed me to earn supplemental income which has allowed me have more time with my children. I never realized the impact that would have on us, but being there for every milestone moment in both of my daughters’ lives is something I will cherish forever. Ten years later, I am still able to take my girls to and from school, volunteer, chaperone, work my AdvoCare side hustle, coach and just be there for them any time they need me. It is busy and challenging, but I wouldn’t have it any other way!
What do you do for a living? Does AdvoCare® incorporate into it?
Since finding AdvoCare, I became a Certified Nutrition Coach, and it helped solidify my beliefs and the importance of supplementation. Regardless of a person’s goal, there will always be a product(s) that can appropriately fit into any routine. Because I use products daily, and have coached hundreds of others over the years, it helps a new person trust the quality, efficacy and integrity of AdvoCare and its products.
What’s something you have learned through AdvoCare®?
AdvoCare has taught me to have belief in myself. There is never a goal too big or too small to work toward, and if you put in the work anything is possible. AdvoCare has helped reinforce the importance of relationships, and that healthy relationships start from within. It’s OK to be vulnerable, and it’s OK to make mistakes. By loving yourself and believing in yourself, you open the door to helping others do the same. AdvoCare has also taught me about leadership and who you become when pursuing the things you want in life. I strive to lead by example and teach my children to do the same.
How have you grown since first becoming a Distributor?
Before AdvoCare, I don’t think I knew the potential I had in impacting another person’s life. Because of the belief others had in me, I learned to have more confidence in myself. I know the importance of being an advocate for others, and I have seen the difference it has made in both their lives and in mine.
What is your favorite part of being with AdvoCare®?
My favorite part about AdvoCare is the relationships that I have built. Whether it were my best friend or a complete stranger prior to AdvoCare, I have accumulated so many amazing friendships over the years. Every person that comes into my life knows I value their friendship – and I truly believe they value mine, too. There is always room in my heart for more people!
How has your health and fitness journey evolved over time?
When I first started AdvoCare, I was a new mom trying to get healthy. I enjoyed running and eating “healthy”, but I never understood the importance of nutrition or followed any type of running program. I now can say that I am a MARATHONER (I have run three full marathons since 2017). Running a marathon is not just about physical strength and determination but also mental strength. Belief is a huge thing I’ve learned over the years, and it applies to many areas of life. I also make sure I fuel my body every few hours, and I always strive to live life with balance.
What made you decide to run your first marathon?
My cousin and I trained together. She kept asking if I’d run a marathon with her, and I told her the only way I would is if she would go with me to an AdvoCare event, and she did. She agreed to come, and I agreed to do a marathon.
Which products help you in your training?
I couldn’t go without 02 Gold®. I also use Arginine Extreme® and AdvoCare ® PRE Workout, and Muscle Strength™ when needed.
What advice would you give a new Distributor just starting out?
I would say speak with passion whenever you’re talking with people about AdvoCare. The key to success as a Distributor is taking time to understand what your customer wants. It takes a lot of listening, support and patience. Strengthening relationships with people around you will help make you successful. You have to know what they’re about and what they want.
What brings you the most joy in life?
Being around people is what brings me joy. I love my family and friends, and I love them hard! My cup is full when I can interact with people often. Hearing their stories, knowing their hearts, learning different perspectives and respecting different opinions can open your mind and heart. I think if we all strengthened our relationships, our world would be a much better place!
