What's the key to talking to anyone, have them open up, and create real life-changing connection with others?
Just ask Chris Schembra.



Chris Schembra is a keynote speaker, Broadway Producer, sought-after dinner host, and superstar relationships expert. But when he was younger, he always felt overlooked and like he was the last one to get invited to the party. But through the power of pasta, gratitude, and great questions, he's been able to host hundreds of heartfelt dinners with thousands of people and created a safe space for vulnerability through his company "7:47 Club."


On this episode, Chris sits down with Mark to talk about how 7:47 Club got its start, how connecting people became his greatest strength, the strength of 'weak ties', and advice he would give to others trying to find their way while helping others.
