My Story

If it was your dream that brought you to this page, let me tell you one thing: Today might be that ‘one day’ that can change your life forever.

Hi there! It’s a pleasure to have you here. My name is Casanova Brooks and I’m the founder and CEO of DreamNation Academy. You’re probably wondering how I got to where I am right now (which is obviously why you’re reading this. . .), so let me tell you this: Everything that I am now is a far cry from how life was for me just a few years past. And if you haven’t heard my story yet, you probably won’t believe what I’m going to be telling you next.

There was a time when my life hit rock bottom. The best year of my life was the worst I’ve ever lived through. Nothing could have been more ironic than that.

In just that one year, I lost my house, I lost my job, and I even lost my mom. To say that nothing seemed to be going my way is an understatement.

Until one day, I decided I have had enough. I decided it was time to take control of my life and live it by my design.  I knew I had to do something about what was happening⁠—anything. For the sake of my family.

And so that day, I jumped right into the real estate business with virtually no experience and no money in my pocket ⁠— only my dream and determination to keep me going.

The rest is history.

Who would have thought that in my first year as a real estate agent I would close 46 deals and go from being broke to earning six figures?

Who would have thought that an ordinary boy from inner Chicago would eventually turn out to be an award-winning real estate agent, investor, speaker, and CEO?

If you told me years ago that this was going to happen to me, I probably wouldn’t have believed you. So now why am I telling you this?

It’s because even though you probably don’t realize it yet, you and I are very much similar. Like you, I too started with a dream. And like most people out there who have achieved a level of success, I too have not had things the easy way. 

But my life is proof that everyone has the power to truly live a life by their design. And that includes you.So if an ordinary person like me found a way to make my dreams a reality, what’s keeping you from doing the same?
