Providing A Gathering Place For Powerful Community Building with Chris Schembra

Providing A Gathering Place For Powerful Community Building with Chris Schembra

The deep South where Chris Schembra is from once had massive oak trees in a central part of each town. They were the gathering places, the locations where people would come together to learn news from the outside world, to share their experiences, to receive the help and advice they needed. In other parts of the world, the gathering place may have been a coffee shop, church, or local tavern. In the modern world true gathering places of that kind are becoming fewer and fewer, but Chris Schembra wants to change that. On this episode of Real Relationships, you can learn how Chris has developed The 747 Club in an attempt to bring people together for the sake of building relationships that serve the greater good. It’s an amazing concept and you’ll enjoy hearing Chris’s vision and enthusiasm – and how it translates into business.

It’s a simple principle that drives Chris Schembra to create gathering places where those relationships can begin, build, and benefit the world. It’s an example of what he’s doing to be consistent with one of his favorite lines, “In a relationship-driven world the greatest thing you can do is be of service.” Find out more about what Chris is doing...
