I got into Clubhouse at the end of 2020. I was fortunate enough to run into some important folks on the platform because there were so few people on it at the time. I went all in and developed not only a good following but a deep understanding of how to use Clubhouse and why it’s the best home for cannabis.
I started my show “The State of Cannabis NewsHour” on 4.20.2021. I got a bunch of industry experts on a Zoom call on April 15, 2021 and sold them on my vision. I don’t think any of us were journalists at the time or even paid public speakers. But because of my countless hours of research on Clubhouse and the relationships that I was able to form there, almost everyone on the Zoom agreed to work towards my vision. I was not sure if I could keep all of these industry notables engaged, motivated, and interested in coalescing into a team of cannabis correspondents, but we were off to a good start!
We stumbled along our way but everyone seemed to start getting it and getting more comfortable with their roles. We had a team building meeting at the end of the first quarter and asked everyone to step up their game. We made a few adjustments to the schedule and as a whole became more solid. Yay! SOCNH 2.0 here we go!
Today we get a daily attendance of around 125 industry leaders that have begun to rely on us for their cannabis news. We are saving them many hours of combing through newsletters and Google alerts. What’s more is they are broadcasting our show in their offices to keep their employees up to date (and entertained).
Now, we’re starting to have fun on the show because it’s flowing and we know each other better. Stay tuned for more content from The State of Cannabis Club!
