Julie and Casey sit down with Six Degrees Society founder Emily Merrell to talk about building communities, the best way to network, and how to host an event to foster connection. Along the way we get the epic stories behind how she met her husband in New Orleans doing everything wrong, and what happens when your dream wedding gets evacuated 30 minutes before the ceremony.
About Emily Merrell:
HEY, I’M EMILY
I'm Chief Networker and Founder of Six Degrees Society. People also (lovingly) refer to me as "20 questions" because I've always loved figuring out people's stories.
While working in the fashion industry, I dreamt up a place where individuals could come together from all industries, all backgrounds and show up who they are —unapologetically. Nothing makes me happier than connecting people who could mutually make each other's lives more enjoyable.
In addition to Six Degrees Society, I also work with companies, founders, and more who are looking to build a strong community of their own, plan retreats to inspire their own teams, or need a mentor in their own business journey.
