Happy EntrepreNEWerial New Year from the Entrepreneur Social Club! We’ve Entrepreneurs, Business Owners, Dreamers, Start-Ups and Positive Folks gathered here at historic DTSP venue NOVA 535, on a beautiful Thursday January 4, 2018. For our weekly evening of networking, schmoozing, business development, mentoring, laughter, business card reviewinf and so much more! It’s typically the highlight of the week for many of us, for the camaraderie, the imparted wisdom, the hugs, smiles and laughter; plus if you hang around long enough, you may be an #afterparty #falloutvictum. More, or not, about that later…
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!
A Quick Peek Into Our Future
Thursday May 25, 2017 is another delightful St. Pete, Florida day, though it’s getting hotter fo sho. SUMMER IS COMING!! (yelled with a Game of Thrones enthusiasm) Yet with the breeze it’s still quite enjoyable. We gather every Thursday since 2009, to schmooze, network, mentor, listen, learn and hopefully get a bit smarter and wiser. The world is changing faster and faster, and even us cutting and bleeding edge Entrepreneurs are having an increasingly difficult time keeping up. We do what we can to keep it all together, yet according to some really, really smart, visionaries, we are likely to get passed by. And bested. By Algorithms. Biology and data are all algorithms. All programmable. But before we get too worked up, let’s grab a drink and some laughs and dig into tonight’s human to human meeting!
Fearless Facials and Hilarious URLs
Another beautiful Thursday evening here in sunny Downtown St. Petersburg, Florida, aka DTSP. We are gathering for our weekly networking, socializing, drinking, listening and learning; our home away from home. The Entrepreneur Social Club (TM) going strong since 2009. Last week one of our ESC members, the lovely and talented Dona Crowley, held her Luminescence Blacklight Fashion Show and Art Experience during our normal meeting time. Beautiful models painted with blacklight effective body paint, food and music and lots of fun. Well tonight, May 11, 2017, we are back to our “regular” meeting schedule, if “regular” involves fearless facials … so let’s get started!
Headshots Splits and The Galley
Tonight it’s Thursday March 30, 2017, here in beautiful Downtown St. Pete, Florida. We are gathering for our weekly networking, schmoozing, mentoring, drinking, laughing, learning, dining and so much more. Plus some Headshots Splits and maybe even an afterparty! It’s every Thursday since 2009, our group, the Entrepreneur Social Club (TM). A chance to meet and connect with fellow business owners, Entrepreneurs, and the like minded, where religion and politics are forbidden. A place to discuss and debate the best way to solve problems, to make a better business or process; not a place for bullies nor jerks. A fun place where we all walk away a bit smarter. Better humans and business people. A place we call home.
It’s another beautiful Thursday night, March 16, 2017, here in lovely downtown St. Petersburg, Florida, what we locals call DTSP. We’re gathering at our gorgeous, historic HQ, St. Pete’s 5-Star wedding and event venue NOVA 535. Where our weekly ritual has taken place since 2009, when the Entrepreneur Social Club, aka ESC, was founded. And Trademarked. So if you are considering creating a social club for Entrepreneurs, be original and find your own name. Dorks!! (Side rant.) Anywho, here we gather to laugh and cry, to share our successes and failures. Plus we enjoy some cocktails from our lovely master bartender Vanessa, and get in some good ol’ fashion networking. When the timing is just right, we enjoy some Entrepreneurial Magic.
Entrepreneurial Pet Peeves
Thursday February 23, 2017, another gorgeous “winter” night here in sunny Downtown St. Pete, Florida. Oh how “terrible” our winters are here. Burr!! Ahahhahaa!! Tonight we gather, as we do every Thursday since 2009 for our weekly Entrepreneur Social Club meeting, then dinner and more drinks. A table full of Entrepreneurs, Students, Startups, Mentors and more… who will all air out our Entrepreneurial Pet Peeves tonight!
Shaken and Stirred. Red or White? Domestic or Imported? Tonight, Thursday January 26, 2017, as our delightful bartender Vanessa enjoys some sin city with her friends, I add to my roles that of Bartender. Luckily, not the first or even 100th time, so we’re in good shape. Not as good when she is around (don’t leave us Vanessa!) but we’ll survive! And yes Art, you can have another Vodka and Soda, just let me put my camera down!
