Clubhouse and the Summit That Brought Us Together
MIKE WAYNE.COM PRESENTS
I have been to a few different types of webinars, events and conferences. Many that I chose were life changing. This summit wasn’t any different. Clubhouse Summit #2, hosted by Mike Wayne, on the Clubhouse app, was one of the most enlightening online events I’ve ever been to.
First off, Clubhouse is an audio drop-in app that has catapulted into the ranks to be one of the fastest growing apps in social media. At first, only available on IOS, Clubhouse is an audio only app that was an exclusive invite only app, up until this month, where they have allowed a few beta Android testers to download and use the app.
The app has been made popular by the celebrities that have utilized it, but the REAL substance has been proven and shown by the hard working 9-5’rs and entrepreneurers on the app. The gems, tips and knowledge that are shared on the app, when truly researched, provide so much needed resources, support and space to connect.
Fast forward to my connection with Stevii Mills on social media, I saw that she shared about a Clubhouse Summit on her page. I was intrigued and since I am moving forward in this new season of self discovery and moving forward to speaking on different platforms and social media, I decided to not only make sure that I was there for every day of the week long summit, but to fearlessly try and provide my experience and knowledge on some of the panels that were seeking more speakers.
For those of you who know, I have been on this fearless journey for a long time. I have been conquering public speaking since beginning my Youtube experience 7 years ago, and more recently, 4 years ago starting my livestreaming experience. I am more comfortable now but wanted to challenge myself on a new app and add to the space and not just take and run away with the information I was learning.
In the Clubhouse Summit #2, (I unfortunately missed the first one), had many panels to choose from and so many speakers of all levels on the panel, as well as Key Note Speakers. All of the panels that were scheduled for the summit were vast, which included specific social media tips and strategies for growth and visibility. The panels that stuck out to me, that I also participated in, were the Women Empowerment Panel, Mompreneur Panel and Mental Health Panel.
Although I have been speaking, sharing and creating on Youtube and livestreaming platforms, the Clubhouse platform was new platform to me and I was in unfamiliar territory. I am so thankful for Mike and his team of moderators, who offered not only a welcoming enviroment, but a safe space and open minds to allow people from to speak and engage during the summit, whom they mostly never met or heard of.
It was a beautiful experience. Perfectly curated in regards to selections for the key note speakers to panelist who were entertaining, educating and informing us all in different topic areas. The moderation for the summit was orchestrated by far the most seamless I have ever seen on the platform thus far, and many people should definitely take note of the women, who helped to make it as magical as it was.
It was the Mompreneur panel that really touched my heart, because as well all got through our tips and shares for the panel, we began to share about other mother/daughter relationships and somehow that “4th wall” was broken through. Sets of mothers and daughters were on stage and sharing and pouring into one another, including my own.
I’ve never felt as close to strangers than in that moment. I will say that over the time of the week long summit, I was able to overcome a lot of the mental “hurdles” that I’ve been going back and forth in my head about. I can’t explain how hearing other peoples journey’s and the lack of fear and judgement helped to not only allow us to see each other on a more personal level but to see ourselves as we truly want to be; uninhibited and unapologetically ourselves.
I’ll sum up my takeaways although I could talk about this summit for days. Here are the big factors I walked away with:
- There’s strength in realizing your potential in who you are and where you want to be. Your purpose is already in you, if you take a moment to remove all of the doubt and fear, your destiny is waiting for you to tap into it.
- There’s power in having a team. Don’t be afraid to delegate or ask for help in areas you may need help or feel weak in. You’d be surprised how much you can accomplish but trusting those around you, who truly want to see you win.
- There’s hope in knowing you are not alone. Although it may seem you are the only one who may be going through what you’re going through, whether it’s a life or business issue or situation, but there are so many others who are. Your story, your testimony, and your share, may help them as theirs may help you. Sharing truly is caring.
- Lastly, taking a leap of faith and exploring new areas, topics, subjects that may have been previously cliche, taboo, or unpopular, can truly open your eyes and mind to being more open to people from different walks of life or backgrounds.
There were other takeaways from the summit that were important to business and social media growth, but for me it was important, and always important to understand the gravity of the meeting of minds from all over the world. I’m thankful for that, and the presentation of resources and the opportunity to make connections with people I most likely would have never met or taken the time to understand or talk to.
Conferences, events, and other connecting opportunities like this should not be taken lightly. Personal and business development is so important. I always take the opportunity to feed my mind by attending them when I can, whether they are free or not, because what’s important is what I can get out of it, which most of the time worth more than money.
