I get the horrible, and also wrong,

 "waiting for host to start" the meeting, error message,

 

OFTEN, but I AM THE HOST... help!....

 

why is ZOOM software so bad!!!.... I use 2 emails all the time, and send an invite to other one, but I log on as main one and get this nonsense on my iMAC & can NOT log in to MY MEETING....

 

I open the invite I get on my main calendar on my computer from sending the original invite on my hotmail/outlook account using CHROME on my imac.... but it won't let me , the HOST, join!?!>.... 

 

unless I open the other invite on my calendar on my iPhone and open that too... which is not always convenient and should not be needed... how can I fix this before I just quit zoom forever and go back to teams (which lacks the great green screen option of zoom)....??

The invite is precisely that, an invite for your guests/participants/attendees, you need to login with your Zoom credentials and then join the meeting, if you follow the invite you will be considered a guest/participant/attendee and not a host.
