Friends and Family gather for Nova Noel 10

As each year comes to an end, our Friends and Family gather for Nova Noel. Meeting up a final time at our HQ, the historic DTSP venue NOVA 535, for our Nova Noel, wild annual holiday party. December 28, 2017 brought us our 10th Nova Noel, each one filled with special memories and unique moments that can only be concocted by the combo of Entrepreneurs, small business owners, Santa time and plenty of alcohol. Nova Noel 10 certainly didn’t disappoint. Laughs, zaniness, gorgeous ladies swinging from the rafters and Santa strutting his stuff, all while we enjoyed the delicious beats of DJ MEGA and the tasty, healthy food from Chef Ray Milton. Luckily I hired photographer Ann Coffman to capture all of our madness, so I could spend more time zipping around spreading our unique ESC holiday cheer!

Subcentral at Iberian Rooster

A Happier Healthier Entrepreneur Social Club is Subcentral at Iberian Rooster Downtown St. Pete.

Hello Thursday December 21, 2017! Here we are at Subcentral, the cool (literally) underground entertainment section of the Iberian Rooster, located at 475 Central Avenue, Downtown St. Pete. Our HQ, the historic venue NOVA 535, is closed for a private wedding and reception, so we’ve ventured further into DTSP to set-up shop for the evening. I never know who will show up for these off-site (not at NOVA 535) Entrepreneur Social Club ™ meetings. Roger Curlin, the super starter Mr. Johnny Hussle himself is the first to arrive, and is immediately asking how he can be helpful. Great guy! So we rearrange some high top tables and chairs, get my laptop all powered up, find a secure WiFi channel and begin prepping for tonight’s ESC meeting. Let’s see who showed up and what they had to say….

Mutant ESCape

Mutant ESCape. Huh? It’s another gorgeous Thursday evening, December 14th, the year 2017 almost at its finale. We weary and overworked small business owners and Entrepreneurs, gather here, once again at our HQ, the historic DTSP wedding venue and event space NOVA 535. This is our ritual, the night we recharge, blow of steam, vent, laugh, cry and share our tales of success and failures. Gathering again for our weekly ESC meeting of biz dev (business development for those not in the know) networking and schmoozing. ESC is quick speak for Entrepreneur Social Club ™. ESC can also be short code for ESCape. Analog or Digital ESCape. Like that necessary evil of a button on the top left of your keyboard. The one we pound on often to stop an impending mistake, or to return us back to where we started.

Follow the Shiny Fork to the Entrepreneur Social Club

Tonight is Thursday, November 9, 2017, and we gather at our Entrepreneur Social Club headquarters, the DTSP historic venue, NOVA 535. We all get sidetracked, in business, in love, and especially after some drinks while we’re being silly. Speaking for my fellow Entrepreneurs, we are ALL overworked, mostly underpaid and certainly ALL need to lower our stress levels. Healthier is Happier, that’s Better, correct? Tonight we discussed how we can, and should be, healthier. And laughter is always on the prescribed medications list. We have so many laughs and good times during our meetings, and especially afterwards at dinner. Even more so during our !!AfterParty!! …though rarely are there any digital documentation and evidence of our !!AfterParties!! Club rules and all that. Just ask Jzon.
