Chris Smith and The Campfire Effect™
What is The Campfire Effect™
What do you think about when you’re sitting around the fire? If someone was to ask you to explain how you feel when you’re around a campfire, how would you describe it?
Like most of us, you would probably explain that experience and what that experience means to you by using words like comfortable, happy, oneness, fulfilled, relaxed, content, family, friends…
That feeling, that experience, IS The Campfire Effect™. In order to attain true success within your business, your employees and your customers should experience The Campfire Effect™. Your business should embody the power of The Campfire Effect to create a true oneness and connection with your audiences – including your internal team, your partners, and your customers.
