Benjamin Franklin’s Junto

A Junto is defined as “a political grouping or faction,” and that’s somewhat the entity that Ben Franklin created along with eleven other prominent Philadelphians in the eighteenth century. However, Franklin’s group was apolitical and was a club for the mutual improvement of selves, businesses, and communities. Franklin’s club had nine insightful, impactful questions they regularly asked each other, and the questions very much retain their relevance in the present day.

Please tune in this week as Wayne reveals the nine questions, discusses the rise of today’s “Ben Franklin Circles,” and talks about another modern day iteration of the Junto. What do you think? Are mutual improvement societies as valuable today as they were in 1727? Please share with us in the comments.
