In an exclusive interview on “Indivisible with John Stubbins,” conservative speaker and author Chris Weidner revealed the launch of a groundbreaking initiative aimed at fostering collaboration among like-minded professionals. Weidner, a member of the Motivational Speakers Hall of Fame and co-founder of The Red Referral Network, joined the show to discuss the platform’s mission and its potential impact on conservative communities.
The Red Referral Network, co-founded with Dinesh D’Souza, introduces a novel approach to business networking, drawing inspiration from established models like Business Networking International (BNI). Weidner emphasized the need for conservatives to support each other economically, expressing concern about funding individuals or businesses that may hold opposing political views. The platform aims to facilitate weekly in-person meetings across various cities, fostering connections and business referrals exclusively within the conservative community.
One key feature of the network is its focus on addressing the challenges faced by conservatives in an increasingly polarized society. Weidner highlighted the sense of persecution conservatives often experience and emphasized the importance of weekly gatherings to provide mutual encouragement. Additionally, the Red Referral Network plans to offer exclusive content created by Dinesh D’Souza for its members, further enhancing the platform’s value.
The idea originated from Weidner’s desire to improve upon existing networking models, particularly BNI, by creating small groups nationwide. With the Republican Party not actively pursuing such initiatives, Weidner and D’Souza took it upon themselves to build a platform that goes beyond business referrals, incorporating a sense of community and shared values.
