The ChainMeet Movement of Inspiring Forward

Introducing the new Movement of POSITIVITY that helps ordinary people make an extraordinarily positive impact on the world around us, just one friend at a time. Because when you inspire forward, you ultimately inspire within – so you will inspire forward again!

The Heartbeat of ChainMeet

Has scrolling through your social feeds ever left you feeling more isolated rather than connected? You’re not alone. At ChainMeet, we’re shaking up the status quo by steering away from superficial online interactions and diving deep into the essence of true friendship. We champion the cause of face-to-face, one-on-one meetings that bring back joy to being social. Life’s too short for relationships that don’t spark joy and inspiration. We’re taking it old-school. We’re bringing back real-life, in-person human connection!

The Purpose Behind ChainMeet

In a world ruled by shallow likes and hollow emojis, virtual this and digital that, ChainMeet dares to envision something grander: the power of Friendtentional relationships. Our founder, Sue, felt the transformative impact of authentic kinship and knew this was the missing link in modern connection. ChainMeet exists to be your catalyst for enhancing relationships with your RFs (RealFriends) and VFs (ValuedFriends), the ones who elevate you and inspire you to be the best version of yourself.

Why Choose ChainMeet?

Let’s face it: We’re all seeking real, live, human connection—true friends who hear us, see us, and value us without any judgment. Despite being plugged into various social networks and devices, many of us still grapple with feelings of loneliness, anxiety, and isolation. When it comes to making an extraordinary positive impact, it’s not about how many friends you have—it’s about how deeply you connect with the friends you’ve got.

Welcome to the ChainMeet Movement!

Our mission is straightforward: to empower you to become the most authentic version of yourself while positively impacting your circle. How do we accomplish this? Through a method we’ve perfected:

The ChainMeet Methodology:
Meet, Treat, Eat

How do you bring Friendtentional moments into your life? Just follow our 3 simple steps: Meet, Treat, Eat. ChainMeet encourages you to go beyond surface-level talks. We believe that the act of treating—sharing a meal or experience—creates room for honest conversations and genuine connections. So, pick a spot, meet up, treat them to something special (no going Dutch!), share an experience, and then repeat. It’s as transformative as it sounds!


Take the first easy step of being friendtentional: send a ChainMeet invite to a VF to hang out together one-on-one, face-to-face, just the two of you. Even the invitation will brighten their day and set the stage for impact!


Meet at a coffee shop, pizza café, a pub, or a pastry shop, wherever – this is where you get to be creative. Treat them to a favorite coffee, pizza, after-dinner drink, a donut or two, again, whatever you choose; this makes it affordable. Then sweeten the treat by honoring them with your complete focus and attention.


Enjoy the treat and your time together as you create an impactful experience – honor your friend with meaningful interaction, encouragement, and validation. Let them share! And spur them on with your affirmation and your belief in them. Then enjoy the rewards of reciprocity – the good version of what goes around comes around – you BOTH will feel an enhanced sense of value and self-worth!

REPEAT it all again – Keep inspiring forward! Invite another VF to a ChainMeet, and another…. That’s changing the world around you, simply one friend at a time! Then…

Don’t forget to post your meeting on ChainMeet to inspire others! Go to your Activity Page to memorialize the awesome time with your buddy: Snap a selfie of the two of you during your ChainMeet and upload it. Share your experience: Tag them and mention the restaurant you visited. Imagine how they will feel when you publicly show appreciation for your VF!
