episode 269: becoming a popular parenting resource, author, and community leader with Brooke Romney

Brooke Romney is a writer, speaker and leader of an online community who helps moms of teens and tweens create meaningful, healthy and enjoyable relationships with their children through practical application, education and community. Her goal is for every family to feel confident and connected.

The mother of four boys ages tween to adult, Brooke knows parenting perfection isn’t real and takes an honest and hopeful approach with her audience. Her best-selling book 52 Modern Manners for Today’s Teens (Volumes 1 & 2) provides weekly tips to help parents and teens navigate the complexities of today’s world.

The follow-up, 52 Modern Manners for Kids, will feature tips for kids and tweens aged four to 12 and is set to release this August. Brooke’s work has been featured in The Washington Post, Scary Mommy and Forbes. Brooke and her family live in Utah.

Inside, we chat about:

  • Her journey as a professional writer turned mommy blogger and evolved into sharing openly about her parenting style as a mother to 4 boys
  • The article she wrote about parenting that went viral and how this gave her confirmation that this was the direction she had to go in
  • Why everything started to truly take off for her once she started to write about teenagers and the huge community of moms on Instagram that grew as a result
  • How she initially monetized her platform using low ticket guides and eventually her first parenting book – which was a massive success and sold out in two weeks
  • And so much more!
