Ovie Mughelli - Goodness as Glue

“Driving compassion and empathy, isn't that just a better way to live life?” - Ahmen of the Troublemaker Movement, from 'Good is the New Cool' by Afdhel Aziz

What do professional football, environmental sustainability, and comic superheroes have in common? If contemplating your own personal "second act," what factors should you consider to best manage expectations, both internal and external? How can you stand out by standing up?

Join host Chris Schembra in this episode of his podcast series, 7:47 Club Conversations, as he welcomes former All-Pro NFL Fullback Ovie Mughelli in a conversation about the unexpected tangents that life's journey often presents. Listen as Mr. Mughelli shares his story of hope to and fulfillment of playing in the NFL, and what came after when the time came to reinvent himself. Find out what motivates him to do good with the platform he's been given, and which issues are the nearest to his heart in the desire to pass our planet to the next generation as a better place than he found it.

Whether we are marketing ourselves, a product or service, goodness and integrity are becoming far more integral to our direct engagements, as consumers and partners reflect on how they feel when interacting with an individual or company. Mr. Mughelli so thoughtfully expresses his views regarding how having a lasting positive impact within our communities speaks to who we are, and how we were raised. You too are invited to join this purpose-driven movement, as discussed weekly through these personal discussions of life experiences.

In 2015, the 747 Club was founded by Mr. Schembra to create a conversational environment promoting Authenticity ~ Empathy ~ Vulnerability ~ Safety. In sparking dialogue between people from disparate backgrounds and experiences, with different interests and viewpoints, a sense of community is formed within this shared experience, creating real understanding and an acceptance of others. Through this podcast, a wider audience will now learn about the 7:47 Club’s incredibly important mission.

Welcome, and enjoy the journey.
