Using Clubhouse to grow your business
My experience on ClubhouseAfter much debate I decided to give it a go because the FOMO is real on this app. I spent about six days dipping in and out of it and listening to people speak before I set up my own room to host. Firstly, what was interesting is that I didn’t find it natural and I was actually very nervous which I was surprised at because I love recording my podcast. After I was invited up to speak in someone else’s room and take the ‘stage’ as they call it, I got hooked on the app and spent the whole weekend listening to all kinds of conversations.
The darker side of Clubhouse (in my opinion)Because you can get access and coaching from the celebrities of the internet and people that you would not normally get access to, directly answering your questions, clubhouse can be really seductive for your ego. I was quick to experience the need to reach 1,000 followers quickly too and wondering if I’d get a follow back or DM or invited to speak again. The thing is all this is chasing validation. After spending a whole weekend on Clubhouse then having a short conversation with a friend about what it means to be truly sovereign, I was aware that in this kind of whirlwind of clubhouse action, that I was really giving up my power. I wanted to prove that I'm good enough on this new platform and have others validate my expertise. But after receiving a loving voice note from a peer, I realised what a load of BS that was and instantly my frequency changed. My heart opened and my body relaxed. I even said to myself how ridiculous is this Suzy? And it was so clear that it was in fact draining my energy. And in order for me to create what I want to create in the world and have the impact that I want to have, my energy and my frequency and who I surround myself with are everything. So, for anyone interested in joining here’s my advice:
Advice for going on Clubhouse
- If you’re thinking about setting up a room, give yourself permission to start small.
- If it’s taking you out of your comfort zone, good. What you should immediately do is do it again, no matter how well or how badly it goes.
- Be intentional about using it. Check in with how it is making you feel. Don't get caught up in this desire to validate yourself through other people's acknowledgement.
