A Virtual Analog Reality

Where are we? Hmm, there are many worlds. Some digital. Some Analog. Tonight, I think we’ve stepped into A Virtual Analog Reality. We the Entrepreneurs, are always tinkering. Dreaming, creating, trying, doing. Crazy. Mad. Forming dreams into our new realities. Analog and Digital realities. And when those realities meet, we have created a Virtual Analog Reality. Analog spaces and people. Digital tools and systems. With augmented and virtual realities, like some of the VR toys we played with tonight. Care of fellow Entrepreneur Stacy Waite. Yea, our world is a ch-ch changing! So let’s get settled in, around our massive meeting table, here at my historic downtown St. Petersburg, Florida wedding venue. The beautiful and unique event space NOVA 535. Tonight, yes as I’ve said for weeks now, is another hot and rainy Thursday. This one landing on August 8, 2019.

A Virtual Analog Reality 

Speaking of digital, this week we’ve had issues with getting one of our ALOHA POS terminals repaired. NCR is the company, a big bloated global corporation, one that is slow and inefficient and very customer unfriendly. They are difficult to deal with at best. Still, eventually, with a lot of phone calls, emails, persistence, and some good luck, my brother Chris Novilla and I finally got the guy to come out and help solve our issues. Unfortunately, that was right at 6 pm when the ESC gets rolling. Fortunately, our pal and tech guru Chris Jenkins was here, as he was while I was globetrotting in 2018-2019, to take the wheel. We see Chris basking in the glow of his adoring fans below. Gracias amigo!

Chris does so many things exceptionally well, but note-taking during the Entrepreneur Social Club meetings isn’t one of them. Tonight my story is thinner than normal, more of a names and photos kinda blog.

BOOKS and PODCASTS

Yeah, I’ll shamelessly plug my new book, It’s 5 AM Go Home, a hilarious step-by-step guide to throwing your own 5-Star weddings, parties and events! As I do host the ESC, and play photog and blogger, for free for the last decade, it’d be a really kind way to “give-back” by investing in one of my books and leaving a (hopefully) 5-star review online on Amazon. Thank you!

Michael Novilla

Born on April Fools Day in St. Pete, Florida, I’ve always loved learning, exploring, and making things better. Since completing my MBA in 1993, I’ve bought, renovated, and leased over a hundred historic buildings. Along the way, I realized my hometown deserved a unique event space, so I built a world-class venue called NOVA 535, which I’ve run since 2008. In the process, I developed “The NOVA Way”, a system of continuous improvement for businesses.In 2009, needing the company of like-minded folks, I created the Entrepreneur Social Club, a network of business owners from around the world who meet every Thursday to collaborate, mentor, and share knowledge. Now, traveling around the world (87 countries and counting), I’m using the expertise I’ve gained from throwing over two thousand 5-star weddings, parties, and events to consult with business owners worldwide, showing them how to achieve world-class service and operations in their business. My first book “It’s 5 AM Go Home!” gives step by step guidance on how to throw amazing events and the soon to be launched Customer Service College will provide formal coursework for business owners who want to achieve 5-star service.I’ve discovered we all face the same problems, and that when we work together, we all win. So let’s work together!Michael@MichaelSNovilla.com
