Happy 2020 Entrepreneur Social Club

It’s Thursday, January 16, 2020, my first ESC meeting after returning back to the USA from another EPIC travel adventures. Republic of Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and South Korea. Then landed into Las Vegas for CES 2020, where I spent a few days with ESC pal Seth Mattox. Wow! My head still spinning, I find myself back here at our HQ, my historic venue, NOVA 535. Our Entrepreneur Social Club [tm], aka the ESC, gathers each week, 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm for business development, drinks, mentoring, networking, laughter, plus sharing successes, failures and honest feedback. Then we go downtown for dinner and more drinks. As 2020 is now upon us, let me offer up a Happy 2020 Entrepreneur Social Club to us all!

Happy 2020 Entrepreneur Social Club

We had a wonderful group tonight, many new faces. I love seeing and experiencing a full meeting table like this. I never know exactly how each meeting will develop, as each person has so much to add, and with many new faces, comes new personalities, knowledge and experiences, with successes AND failures to share! Who am I? Michael Scott Novilla, Author of It’s 5 AM Go Home, founder of the ESC and NOVA 535 Unique Event Space. Perfect location for your weddings, corporate events and private parties!
