Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova.

This week I am grateful to revisit my conversation with Chris Schembra on the show. Chris is the bestselling author of "Gratitude and Pasta: The Secret Sauce for Human Connection", chronicling his adventures as one of the most sought-after dinner hosts in the World. Forbes has just ranked his book as the #2 book of 2020 to create Human Connection and USA Today calls him the "Gratitude Guru.” He is the Founder + Chief Question Asker of 7:47, an advisory firm that helps companies give the GIFT of community and belonging to their VIP clients and partners. Having used their signature pasta sauce to spark over 400,000 relationships around the dinner table, their core hypothesis is that giving gratitude to others is the key to fulfillment, and ultimately good for business. At the time of recording, 7:47 is leading a year-long study on how gratitude and empathy affect entrepreneurship and the values their companies stand for. Their research revolves around a singular question, “If you could give credit or thanks to one person in your life, that you don’t give enough credit or thanks to, who would that be?”

I am beyond delighted to air this RELOAD episode of Chris Schembra on the What’s Next! Podcast for a timeless and moving conversation you’ll keep coming back to again and again.

THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR… people who need and/or want connection, people who want to do better and succeed more, and people who love pasta.

TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… Chris shares his journey through success and plenty, as well as loneliness and rebuilding, and through it all, what gratitude, connection, and pasta have meant to him and to the people around him. He shares the value of connection from catharsis and physical health, to the strengthening of both personal and business connections that directly affect how successful, fulfilled, and prosperous you ultimately are. He also discusses the importance of connection in our current, COVID-19-locked-down reality, how to do it better and drive innovation and creativity, and how his dinners are going virtual!

WHAT I LOVE MOST… When in doubt, show gratitude!
