#Ep209: A Harp Summit That Shaped The Way Creativity Is Imagined.


Diana Rowan is a pioneer in her industry shaping the way musical inspiration and creativity is shared through her Harp Summit Series.  In today’s episode she shares with us some of the strategies she used to build community, fill her membership, and overcome fears that could have halted her inspiration.  All that and more on today’s episode of the Virtual Summit Podcast. 



About Diana Rowan


Diana Rowan is a Creative Alchemist and founder of the Bright Way Guild, an academy dedicated to activating the creative within each of us. The classical inquiry of “what makes a good life?” has driven Diana from her youngest years. Recovered from a soul-crushing case of stage fright and other challenges, Diana believes that by shining light on the darkness we fear, we each become courageous purveyors of bright knowledge and can live a good life.


Diana was born in Dublin, Ireland to college student parents, setting the stage for a lifetime of lively learning and seeking. Soon thereafter, her father became a diplomat, taking his family on a cosmopolitan worldwide pilgrimage. Respect for the arts is second nature in Diana’s family, along with a deep streak of mysticism embodied by her astrologer mother. This unusual combination of intellectual seeking, cultural bridging, mystical openness and artistic engagement are the hallmarks of Diana’s life, whether that be while composing music, teaching, writing, or choosing a wine.


Diana holds an MM in classical piano performance and a PhD in Music Theory. Her book The Bright Way: Five Steps to Freeing the Creative Within released March 2020 from New World Library.


Diana's top 3 advices:


  • 1 The very first thing someone needs to do before hosting a summit is to understand your purpose.

that will really fuel you through absolutely everything.

  • 2. Get community support around it. 
  • 3 . It really did change my life to have summits.I was able to collaborate with so many people at once.

I want to end this episode by saying,


"I believe in YOU & YOU can do this."


Summits are by far one of the most powerful ways to quickly grow your list, launch your platform & make more money! (Even if you are just getting started).

Don’t get caught up in Analysis paralysis, because the world needs to hear your message & there are people who are waiting for you to help them. 


So just get started.  Imperfect action is always better than doing nothing!

Thank you and see you on the next episode!
