This Club Will Break All The Rules — in a Good Way

book club

Every few months my wife, Melissa, leaves me.

It’s not the pack-her-bags, move-back-to-her-mom’s, and call-a-lawyer kind of leave me. 

It’s the Book-Club-in-four-days kind of leave me. 

And it goes like this…

Tom: It’s a Wonderful Life is on TV tonight. You love that movie. Wanna watch it? 

Melissa (with 3-inch thick Toni Morrison novel propped on her lap): Nope! Book Group on Tuesday. Gotta read! 

Tom (a few hours later): Moose (our dog) is getting antsy. Let’s take him on a walk. 

Melissa: You take him. I still have 311 pages to go. 

Tom (long after sunset): I’m kinda hungry. Should we go downstairs and whip up some dinner? 

Melissa: You go ahead. I just ate an energy bar. I’m good. 

And so it goes.

I once told Melissa that Book Group seems like a lot of work and stress. 

“Why not assign one or two people in the group to read the book? Have those people summarize the key details for everyone else. And then discuss among the group,” I suggested. 

She laughed and rolled her eyes, as if I had violated some ancient Book Group code. 

Maybe that’s HER Book Group and their code. 

But some day, I’m going to launch a different kind of book club, and it’s gonna be WONDERFUL.

And guess what!? Someday is NOW! 

Introducing the Mastermind Book Club!
The stress-free way for time-crunched business people 
to UNLOCK INSIGHTS from great books and 
share ideas on how to IMPLEMENT game-changing strategies and tactics  

Ted Prodromou (America’s Leading LinkedIn Coach) and I have partnered to create the Club. 

And you’re invited. 

Here’s how it will work: 

Every month, Ted and I will choose a great business book for the group. 

Ted and I will read the book. You can read it, too – but only IF YOU WANT TO. 

In our FREE, exclusive Mastermind Book Club online community, Ted and I will share short videos, blog posts, and other conversation-starters. 

You can participate in any conversation you choose, or you can start your own.  

The idea: 

  • Share insights drawn from the book.
  • Discuss how to apply those insights to improve your business.
  • Celebrate success as you or other members implement 

The key word above: IMPLEMENT. 

We’re not discussing these books for sh%ts and grins. We’re doing this to…

Take business-advancing ACTION. 

More details to come. I’ll email later this week to reveal the first book and how you can join the free Mastermind Book Club community. 

If you’re interested, reply to this email and let me know. 

Now, I’m going to walk Moose.
