Oyster Dinner Provides Pearls of Wisdom for the Entrepreneur Social Club, on this lovely Thursday night, October 12, 2017. We return to our HQ, the historic DTSP venue NOVA 535, located in beautiful downtown St. Pete, Florida. Another lively and packed house, fellow business owners and Entrepreneurs eagerly gathering to connect, to share and mentor, to enjoy blowing off some steam. And don’t forget another delicious dinner, plenty of drinks and lots of laughter. Let’s see what tomfoolery we got ourselves into this week, and what Pearls of Wisdom we can recall the next morning!
Michael Serwer, pictured above wearing headscarf, is focused on redeveloping Hotel Chepe in Guatemala, which among many other enticements, offers spanish lessons, delicious local food and unique experiences, all at a fantastic value. Just out of the armed forces, Michael loves to help people. Mike shares that “Hotel Chepe offers the most indigenous experience, with 6 volcanoes, very rustig, close to antigua, provides excellent coffee, all at a low cost.” I add “Hey world travelers, let’s check it out!” Next to Michael is our 5DollarFacials.com pal Julia Marie, then Mr. After-After party, my amigo, Art Gueli, and finally the lovely photographer, Jenna Michael. What a cute ESC photo snuggle up!
BELOW is newcomer Kristi Morningstar, who is focusing on how tones and frequencies can heal, via her Energy Sound Therapy. We suggested she get a grant, and we spent time with her to help get her start-up ‘in tune’. Next is Stephanie A. Wynn author of Readi Set Go! Then is our Life Coach Paulette Bailey (wearing yellow), founder of REAL TALK, standing next to newcomer James Hagans, who was referred to the ESC by superstar Jeff Sassano. James, wearing black polo shirt, is newly retired out of the army and is focusing on helping others as a life coach; conveniently he is standing next to an all pro one. Finally we have owner of St. Pete Big Frog Custom T-Shirts franchise Sean Mulligan. Good evening everyone!
BELOW is Dr. Thomas G. Quinlan of Healthy Lifestyles Tampa Bay and Roger Curlin founder of ClubSavor.com. Club Savor is the best $29.95 / month you can spend! I just joined this Thursday at Oyster Bar, and the savings on my 1st meal covered the $29.95 monthly dues. Bravo!! The fabulous Eileen Brock, from Paradise News, is smiling between Thomas and Roger. Lucky guys!
John Roberts is a recruiter for large marketing companies and owner of JonRobertsNow.com, plus working on his 1st book 2nd Shot First. Next is the always hilarious Jodi Hansell, who is working with Casitas Verdes, an industrial chic container home project, while standing next to wonder woman Kym Jenkins, of V-Spicery. Next to Kym, in the pretty patterned dress, is Simmy Pop, a healthy simplicity food advocate and content creator, who was in need of a better business name. So we used our ESC collective brainpower and found for her a fabulous new URL, KeepItSimmy.com. On the end is big Brian Wilson, a newcomer from Re Max Metro. Brian heard about the ESC via Paradise News, plus he’s venturing into business brokering. Welcome John and Brian!
BELOW are lovely ladies Kristi Morningstar and Stephanie A. Wynn.
