Join MDJ Reads
After cultivating an engaged audience of self-starters on Instagram, Haley aka @MrsDowJones launched her book club, #MDJReads. The goal? To get everyone 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 now what really matters is admitting what you don’t know. A life-long learner, Haley is fostering a community where members can ask questions and walk away with value adds each month.

Ok, TBH, I sort of wrestled with the book choice for this month. Like, it's January, everyone is on a New Year's Resolution kick, and I wanted to pick a title that *future me* would read. You know, the same version of me that wakes up at 5 AM to do meditation? So- I did it. I picked this really intense book about the craving mind and how to break bad habits written by a legit doctor. It was the perfect choice on paper to usher MDJ Reads into the new decade except when I tried to read it... I was BORED. And like... unhappy lol. And this New Years, while of course I have resolutions to stop pressing my snooze button and to drink more water, I also have a resolution to do more things that just straight up make me happy. And reading about Anna Wintour's come-up makes me sooo freaking happy.
So, that's why we are reading Anna Wintour: What Lies Beneath The Chic Exterior of Vogue's Editor In Chief. This is a book I truly cannot put down. One that I have carried with me nonstop since starting it in the hopes I will have a free second to pour over some of the pages. A book that I want to read instead of watching TV! This New Year thing is great but like... maybe things don't have to be so serious. You deserve to have fun and be entertained and inspired. And what inspires me is reading about incredibly chic & powerful women who will themselves to the top!
