A Virtual Collective to Support Business Owners
A Business Book Club meets Mastermind experience to grow your knowledge and inspire you to apply your learnings
As a small business owner, there is so much to learn. Then finding the time and discipline to apply your learnings is a whole other challenge.
Does this sound familiar? You buy a business book with the best of intentions to read it, only to have it collect dust on your bookshelf?
Or you excitedly consume a book filled with great ideas, but never implement any of them because it feels too overwhelming to do it all on your own?
Then you're in the right place to start not only learning, but also taking action as a part of an inspiring community.
As a member of the Business Book Collective you will read actionable business books, have access to a like-minded community to support implementing your learnings, and be inspired into action.
Think of it as the Business Book Club meets Mastermind experience for solo and small business owners of service-based businesses.
With a structured format to guide you and a community to read along with, you will finally feel like you are taking the steps you know you should be taking to improve and grow your business.
Learn AND take action
A Book Club provides an opportunity to come together with a community to discuss a book.
A Mastermind brings together like-minded people to share ideas with the intention of bettering each member of the Mastermind.
The Business Book Collective brings together these two concepts to create a unique experience.
Through a guided process, a group of business owners from different industries with different levels of experience read action-oriented business books. We mastermind and support each other in applying the learnings to our businesses.
A Community to support uplevelling your business
Reading business books can help you develop business acumen, open your mind to new ways of thinking and create the right mindset to improve and grow your business. The Business Book Collective enhances the reading experience and provides opportunities for interactions amongst members.
Imagine how amazing you will feel when you've read a variety of business books this year and applied your learnings to your business. We'll keep you on track to meeting your goal.
Reading with the intention of sharing your learnings and the ideas sparked by the content of the book creates a whole new way of absorbing content. The structure of the Collective supports an enhanced learning experience.
COMMUNITY & NETWORKING
It can feel very isolating trying to run a business on your own, especially in today's world. Through the Facebook Group and interactive monthly ZOOM calls, you will build relationships with like-minded people who are also focused on growing their businesses.
During the interactive monthly calls, you will be given opportunities at times to step into the spotlight to share and grow your capacity for leadership.
How it Works
1 | READ
Through weekly reading prompts, you'll be kept on track to reading more business books covering different areas of business.
2 | SHARE
By applying a Mastermind-inspired approach, the Collective will share their learnings and ideas about how they plan to apply learnings from the monthly book to their business in our private Facebook Group and on our monthly call.
3 | APPLY
You'll be challenged and inspired to put new ideas into action in your own business. Even if you just applied one idea from each book, imagine the impact that could have on your business!

Not only are we reading great books that are teaching me new strategies and giving me new ideas, but I am also part of an incredible community of diverse individuals looking to grow their businesses by masterminding and supporting each other. It's such a fun way to fall in love with reading again.
