Fearless Facials and Hilarious URLs

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!

Tonight’s Meeting Recap:

Newcomer Dr. Thomas Quinlan, pictured below in blue dress shirt and tie, is a Clinical Psychologist, heard about the ESC via online and while at a recent bridal show here at historic DTSP venue NOVA 535. He owns a holistic Weight Loss Clinic, located at 8479 MLK Street North, St. Pete 33702. Welcome Doc! We mention an upcoming Health and Wellness event at Station House and St. Pete Healthy Lifestyles hosted by ESC member Mika Rotunda at NOVA. Plus the doctor needs a professionally designed business card. Talk to designer Melissa Caban. Speaking of Fearless Facials, check out Julia Marie’s extra-organic pitch tonight, for her 5DollarFacials.com. She’s fearless, bravo Julia!

Newcomer Emmanuel “Manny” Herrera, pictured below bottom left in teal polo at table, is a franchise owner of Fred Astaire. Manny found the ESC via WOM. He currently has someone doing online marketing, his client “demo” is 35 to 65 years old with $80k+ household income. He’s finding them with facebook ads, etc. As always we review newcomers business cards. OUR ESC BIZ CARD review for Manny:  (he must utilize the Fred Astaire logo but can be flexible with the rest)  #1 Use both sides #2 add more motion #3 use larger font. See Manny went from zero to owner in 3 years… even though  he expected that journey to ownership to take about 10 years. So we ask Manny. “Do you want to be inside the business for love OR are you using the FA franchise to build an income for other pursuits?” Manny replies “Well my role model is Armando who owns 25 studios, he says the market for “learn to dance” is growing.” We suggested, and acquired, DanceStPete.com; a much easier to pitch URL vs the super long existing Fred Astaire one. ESC veteran Nick tells Manny to “Ask Armondo what works, what doesn’t, what should I do, not do, etc. Be specific.”

I'm Michael Novilla and I love throwing great parties and weddings. So as I traveled the world, I explored and brought those amazing ideas home to St. Pete and built us a world-class venue, NOVA 535. I wanted to give back to my community so in 2009 I founded the Entrepreneur Social Club, and host it every Thursday 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm, right here at NOVA 535 in gorgeous downtown St. Pete, Florida.
