Upcoming Reads for 2018

“Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.” - Harry S. Truman  

Are you keeping up with your reading list?

Yeah, didn't think so.

{And even if you are, are you really absorbing and implementing what you’re reading?}  

You've got a lot on your plate, and it's hard to find time for yourself anymore. You’re busy making clients happy, creating fresh content, getting visible, and {oh yeah} carving out time for your life outside of work. 

You haven't been focusing on your creativity, learning and growth for a while, and that means you're not fully stepping into your role as a leader.

When you don’t feed your mind with new ideas, you: 

  • Get stuck in an uninspired rut, instead of embracing your natural creativity.
  • Feed your stress and busyness, instead of helping your self and your business.
  • Live in an echo chamber of your own ideas.
  • Lack diverse mentorship and opportunities for discussion.
  • Feel disconnected and struggle to find new ways to approach old problems.  

There are many ways to find innovation and perspective, but the fastest and most impactful one is mind-bogglingly simple: 

Reading.

{Even better: Reading with a group.} 

A small effort can lead to BIG results.

The world's most renowned leaders attribute a large part of their success to reading. Leaders like Oprah Winfrey, Warren Buffett, and Steve Jobs all point to books as sources of endless innovation and growth in their lives.  

When you take the time {literally just 15 minutes a day} to read, it's can do amazing things for you and your business. 

You refine your ideas. You stop living in an echo chamber. Your stress levels plummet, and your creativity skyrockets.  

Bottom line: If you don't read, you can't lead.  

Let's turn things around.

Upcoming Reads for 2018

Meet your hosts.

We're Jessi + Marie, messaging strategists who serve thought leaders + entrepreneurs, and we want to help you grow.  

Books have always been near and dear to us, but we know first-hand how the pressure of a busy life can make reading fall off the priority list. We also know how much that hurts us in the long run. 

We're committed to providing a space where you can make reading a priority again. A community for you to cultivate new ideas, share experiences with like-minded leaders, and gain powerful, actionable knowledge… so you can show up in a way you're proud of. 

"A readership crisis is really a leadership crisis." -Michael Hyatt 

Got questions?

Why read? Is it really that powerful? Totally! Reading has been scientifically proven to have all sorts of benefits. It helps you communicate better, connect with others, reduce stress, and feel more creative.

Do I actually get a copy of the book? Yes, we’re mailing out physical copies of the book, so you can underline, highlight, bookmark… all that good stuff! 

But what if I’d rather have an ebook or audiobook? We may decide to offer more options in the future, but if you prefer to listen to the book or read it on your e-reader, you’re welcome to grab your own copy. 

I have super-limited time! What if I can’t finish the book? We hope you can find 15 minutes a day to read, because that’ll take you from cover to cover in a month. But if you can’t carve out a quarter hour, it's okay! You’ll get our custom-written summary of the book so you can get the major takeaways — plus you’ll receive a weekly email from us highlighting a short passage that’s especially powerful. That way, you can still learn lots and participate in the discussions, without even cracking open your copy. 

I only read so many books a year, and I need them to count. How do you pick the books? We choose personal and business development books based on the quality of their content and their relevance to leaders. We always read the books ahead of time to make sure they’re good picks — plus we take feedback from our readers.

I already read more than one book a month. How will this club help me? If you're a speedy reader, this is a great opportunity for you to slow down. Take the month to focus on the discussion and implement the book's content. It's great to consume new information, but if you read and never implement, you aren't getting the full benefit of what you learn.

What if I don't like the book? Just because we've picked a book doesn't mean we endorse every word the author has uttered. BUT we feel like there are valuable lessons and takeaways from all the books we choose, so we encourage you to find what works for you. Plus, our community is a safe space for discussions, so if there's something you disagree with, bring it to the group! You'll never get shot down for asking a question or speaking your mind.

I’ve already read the book you chose! There’s a ton of benefit in reading a book more than once. You get a new perspective each time you take in the author's wisdom, because you’ve grown and changed. Even if you’ve already read the book, we hope you’ll join us for new insights, powerful discussions, and an engaged community.

Can I easily invite my friends and community? The more, the merrier! Just send them to this page, and they can sign up, too! Once you participate in the program for a month, you’ll have the opportunity to become a referral partner.

Is there a contract? What if I'm ready to leave? We'll be sorry to see you go, but there's no contract, and you can leave the book club any time you want simply by cancelling your recurring monthly payment. If you ever want back in, you're welcome to sign up once again!
