“ I think as you are surrounded by other people, whether they're business people or not, you can learn a lot about people and success by watching them. By watching how they go through life.

Clubhouse isn't your business marketing answer!

Clubhouse is a wonderful platform and it can do amazing things for you personally and professionally, but it isn't your business marketing answer. Listen in for all the details.

It is never okay, in my opinion, to just talk about what you've got for sale. Nobody cares that you've got something for sale. Guess what? They’ve got something for sale, too!   

-Bonnie L. Frank 

Today’s episode is my third episode about Clubhouse. Yes, my third. Why? Well, I thought it was about time I dispel some misconceptions about Clubhouse.
