What’s a Business Book Club?

Roughly once a month, we discuss in the Bette’s Business Book Club Group on Facebook some options for a book to read. Then we get together on a Zoom Call to discuss the book. Pre-Caronavirus it was in person, but we found that the virtual format was better for all involved. So if you want to improve yourself in business by reading some great business books, join our Business Book Club!
