UPDATE: This Twitter Chat is currently on temporary hiatus. As soon as it's back up and running we will update this page. Apologies for the inconvenience!
If you're on Twitter and are curious about masterminds then we invite you to join us for our new weekly Twitter Chat series! It's an opportunity to engage with other interested masterminders and get a taste of the experience by answering a series of thoughtful questions that will set you up for the week.
This free mini mastermind meeting will take place each Monday and last one hour. The series will begin on December 12, 2016, 11am PST / 12pm MST / 1pm CST / 2pm EST.
BUT WHAT THE HECK IS A TWITTER CHAT?
When people "twitter" it's usually not a scheduled thing. People post, check posts, and engage with posts according to their own schedule, whenever the mood strikes. But a twitter chat is a pre-scheduled event where people come together at the same time to tweet/conversate around a specific topic. The host of the chat will have prepared a set of around 5-10 questions and post one question every 5-10 minutes.
They usually last around one hour and you join the conversation through the use of a hashtag (this thing --> #). You can search hashtags right inside Twitter to find the chat you want to check out, or you can use tools such as Tweetdeck, TweetChat, Twubs, and Hootsuite, to help find and manage chats.
Once you know the chat you want to join, you hop onto your chat site of choice at the allotted time, search for the hashtag and wait for the questions to roll in, usually in the format of...
Q1: [question here] #[chat hashtag], Q2: [question here] #[chat hashtag], etc.
You reply these questions using the same format, but with A1 instead of Q1...
A1: [your answer] #[chat hashtag], A2: [your answer] #[chat hashtag], etc.
There's no need to register for the chat itself and you may come in and out of the conversation as you wish, though in our case we highly recommended you give the chat your attention for the full hour. Questions and answers have to be succinct (140 characters or less total) which I think is perfect for our mini mastermind!
Our hashtag is #vcminimeet
Each week will consist of ten questions spaced six minutes apart. We'll begin with introductions, then share our goals, wins, struggles, and needs, plus give kuddos to awesome people, remind ourselves of important lessons that help guide us along, and make new online friends in the process. That's what I'm talking about!
Q1: Say hello! What's your name, where are you from, and what do you do?
Q2: Give kuddos to someone you appreciate! Name/tag them and share why you think they are awesome.
Q3: Share your struggle, were there any moments of utter frustration or doubt that you've had over the past week? P.S. Hugs to you.
Q4: Share a #WIN you had last week, big or small, professional or personal.
Q5: What lesson is there for you to remember this week? What message would your wise, Higher-Self deliver to you today?
Q6: What are the 1-3 non-negotiable goals you are committed to accomplishing this week? Proclaim them and start with "I will..."
Q7: Wildcard question! Will be different each week.
Q8: Share a resource that other soulful, conscious entrepreneurs may find useful. (must be non self-promotional.)
Q9: What do you want or need most right now? Be brave and ask for it! Put it into words, let the world know.
Q10: Make a connection before you go. Befriend someone in the chat, give them encouragement/congrats, offer help, send love!
And for you detail-oriented folks, yes some of these are statements rather than questions :)
If you'd like to join us follow these three simple steps:
- Hold space on your calendar for these Monday twitter chats and schedule a reminder.
