Emily Merrel, Chief Networker and Founder of Six Degrees Society, has a positive, can-do spirit that is infectious. She has always loved having a side-hustle, and always feels like she needs to be constantly creating and doing more! Since she was a kid she had a creative, mini-entrepreneur spirit. One summer she sold jewelry to earn money to donate to the Humane Society; even at a young age, she was showing the philanthropic business woman she would become. Emily’s idea for Six Degrees Society came to her while working in the fashion industry. She dreamt up a place where individuals could come together from all industries, all backgrounds and show up who they are. And from there Six Degrees Society was born! Tune in to find out more about Emily Merrel’s stumbles and strides towards developing Six Degree Society, what it takes to foster a community of bad-ass members, and how you can become an Ambassador in your own city!
