Let’s Xpress Yourself tonight, with your movements, words, actions, business and playing cards, your dinner and drink choices, and whether you follow me along to the after party. Let’s see if you can hang with el Globetrotter!! OH and welcome to the Entrepreneur Social Club [tm], the ESC is open and it’s time to Xpress Yourself!! (Just keep the religion and politics out.)
Unfortunately, or not, I’ve still gotta experience, organize, type and publish my stories here, old school. Ish. Like “Back in the Day,” I’m still taking photos with a physical camera, editing them on my computer, and typing these words on a frustrating keyboard. One that I still have to look at here and there for the correct keys. Liquid Paper and 8 1/2″ x 11″ paper, plus those maddening printers are gone from my desk, but typing and thinking and crafting a story are still the same as Back in the Day. So tonight we discuss the future and what “back in the day” means to us all.
Hey, I’m Globetrotting Entrepreneur Michael Scott Novilla, traveling our planet, ( see where I’ve been) connecting and mentoring my fellow Entrepreneurs. While I’m home in Sunny St. Pete Florida, I enjoy hosting my weekly Entrepreneur Social Club [tm], held most always at my historic Downtown St. Pete venue NOVA 535. Tonight is Thursday, March 28, 2019, and we are back here inside my 100-year-old brick building, the ESC HQ, NOVA 535. It does feel good to be home. Let’s see what we got into tonight, including a most interesting discussion about leaving our legacy.
The “S” in ESC, stands for Social. A most important part, let’s call it the heart, of our club. Our Social Club. The Entrepreneur Social Club [tm]. So as we gathered once again, at our HQ, the world-class historic downtown St. Pete venue, NOVA 535, we had an extra reason to smile. Tonight, Thursday Match 21, 2019, our members strolled in, beginning at 6 pm, sauntering up to the bar, saying their hellos, with warm hugs and welcomes all around. There was an extra crackle of positive energy in the air, as tonight we were anticipating a Laughter Filled NOVA Comedy Night.
After my mind-blowing, epic 416 days of travel around the globe, I still wake up each day, to the exact same question. So where am I? It’s surreal, exhilarating and momentarily befuddling; then my home bedroom wall comes into focus. Yes, OK, no packing today. I’m back in my hometown, beautiful Downtown St. Pete, Florida. Unsurprisingly, I haven’t found any edges to our globe yet, even after adding all these stops to my globetrotting list…
