Word of Mouth leads into the Tastiest of Ports! Huh? Read on my fellow Entrepreneurs, business owners, startups, students and mentors! Welcome to another chapter of the wild, crazy and always fun and productive Entrepreneur Social Club, held every Thursday night, 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm, most always at downtown St. Pete historic venue NOVA 535. We had several newcomers tonight, and I always ask them how they heard about the ESC. Tonight, it seemed that there was a magical hot tub experience where the secrets of the ESC were revealed…
WOM =Word of Mouth. Still the MOST POWERFUL way to influence decisionmaking. Spend less time on “social media” and more time hanging with real influencers. Seems that Ann Marie shared the awesomeness of our social club with her pal Kurt Madsen of Meta Tech, (pictured below, rear center with black V-neck) and he was in a “hot tub” with, well every new lady that attended tonight! Bravo Kurt, you stud!
