I ask Ryan Wilson, CEO of  The Gathering Spot, a company he started using the private club model, about his decision to join the Atlanta Business League.  He speaks about his organization and that joining the ABL was a no-brainer.

He shares that all business-minded people will benefit from joining the Annual Congress on the State of Black Business.  Entrepreneurs and corporate leaders, non-profit organizations, and anyone interested in starting or growing their own business.

Wilson also speaks about business needs as we leave the Pandemic.  He says his team used the Pandemic to plan their expansion.  They will be opening new clubs in Los Angeles and Washington, DC.
