Too Many Good Ideas Go Unexecuted

We’ve felt the frustration of not following through on the takeaways that excite us after finishing an inspiring business read.

That’s why Bright Ideas Book Club is about more than reading books. It’s a network of business owners committed to continuous learning and growth.

Each month, we feature a high-impact business book and host a free discussion call where business owners share takeaways, ask questions, explore real-world applications, and set the next step to take in their business.

Join the Bright Ideas Book Club to connect, grow, and lead alongside like-minded business owners, all at no cost.

Meet Your Host

Brought to You by Illuminated

We’re big readers and value learning from the best business minds. However, we’ve experienced how easy it is to leave inspiration on the pages of a book and move forward without taking action.

As a result, we’re on a mission to turn insights into impact.

The Bright Ideas Book Club is a free community designed for business owners desiring to read more high-impact business books and gain clarity and confidence to implement new ideas.

By signing up for this book club, you’ll join Illuminated’s co-owners, Katelyn and DJ Soults, and fellow business owners in moving from page to practice.
