Join MDJ Reads
After cultivating an engaged audience of self-starters on Instagram, Haley aka @MrsDowJones decided to leverage her brand to promote personal growth. She partnered with Logan Cohen, founder of Kudzoo App, Forbes 30 Under 30, to create #MDJReads- a book club focused on getting her audience smart, paid and reading.
Each month, the bookclub has a theme designed to help members thrive personally & professionally. From negotiating to personal finance, #MDJreads is all about getting members to read books that drive results. In the past, the mark of an educated person was how much they knew but we strongly believe that now what really matters is admitting what you don’t know. Life-long learners, Haley & Logan are fostering a community where members can ask questions and walk away with value adds each month.

I am SO excited for the book this month. Bradley Tusk is a legendary VC who basically functions as the Ray Donovan of Silicon Valley (hence why the book is called "The Fixer"). TBH, before I read this book, I never really considered the chaos that start-ups in highly regulated industries cause. But like, of course when a company is trying to snatch a piece of the establishment's pie, they're gonna run into a political wall... That's where Bradley Tusk comes in. He deploys the skills & knowledge he developed working with Chuck Schumer, Michel Bloomberg & other political legends to help start-ups fight back. This book covers how he helped stopped the taxi industry from killing Uber in it's infancy, how he held insurance companies at bay while startup Lemonade launched in each state, and how he helped online sports betting sites FanDuel and Draft Kings escape the regulatory death grip casinos tried to put on them. This is a MUST READ for any aspiring entrepreneurs. I am obsessed & also so excited to call Bradley a (best) friend and announce that we will be doing a live bookclub event with him! Yay. Can't wait to see you there.
