xpress yourself at our weekly entrepreneur social club at historic downtown St. Pete Florida venue NOVA 535

Tonight is Thursday, April 11, 2019, and we’ve gathered inside my historic Downtown St. Pete venue NOVA 535, where everything goes EXCEPT religion and politics, liars bullies and thieves. We are consenting adults, by the way. Below Elizabeth Olguin snuggles in with her beau and COO of Express Yourself Media, Paul Menegazzi, who also hugs with Mimi Lang wearing green.  

Christopher Pinault founder of Centric Leadership, joins us for the first time, welcome Chris! He works with small businesses who are growing, focusing on people, who are the core of all businesses, though ‘all’ may be debatable as AI grow in strength… TERMINATOR! Chris is now living in St Pete, was in Ft. Myers and has lived in many places, including Iraq while serving inside the US Air Force.  He has transitioned to coaching. Networking is new to Chris, and so we suggest he starts ‘from the beginning’ by reading Become Key Person of Influence by Daniel Priestly: Pitch, Publish, Profile, Productize, and Partnership.

Mimi Lang recommends that Chris checks out a former Marine Steve Wilmer who is another successful speaker/coach.

Bryan Vanderhoof, aka DJ HOOF, (pictured below in light blue) is a clean entertainment DJ for Teen Parties, who loves spinning and mashing up Nightclub Top 40 hits. Though he does get “real dirty” on his popular podcast, The Hot Party Top 10, rocking since 2018. Welcome, Bryan!!

Allan Jacobson (above in plaid shirt) is the founder of Project First Date, a card game with 190 questions to help connect and break the ice.  We offer that his actual customers are event coordinators and more properly bar owners. These are playing card size cards, with 6 Categories – Passion, Career, Adventure, Family, Oddball, Flirtatious. Fun and smart for sure, the cards just need some improved design which we explored in detail. Welcome Allan, hope we see you again. 

I’m Globetrotting Entrepreneur Michael Scott Novilla, ESC founder, here to help mentor and connect with our like-minded Entrepreneurs. While I’m home living in St. Pete Florida, I host this madhouse of visionaries and fellow creators, every Thursday night, almost always here at historic venue  NOVA 535. Props again to guru Chris Jenkins for holding down the ESC for fourteen months while I was away. Visiting 29 countries, over 416 days, utter and complete insanity. I’ve seen behind all the curtains, please be careful and take a peek if you so dare.

Michael Novilla

Born on April Fools Day in St. Pete, Florida, I’ve always loved learning, exploring, and making things better. Since completing my MBA in 1993, I’ve bought, renovated, and leased over a hundred historic buildings. Along the way, I realized my hometown deserved a unique event space, so I built a world-class venue called NOVA 535, which I’ve run since 2008. In the process, I developed “The NOVA Way”, a system of continuous improvement for businesses.In 2009, needing the company of like-minded folks, I created the Entrepreneur Social Club, a network of business owners from around the world who meet every Thursday to collaborate, mentor, and share knowledge. Now, traveling around the world (87 countries and counting), I’m using the expertise I’ve gained from throwing over two thousand 5-star weddings, parties, and events to consult with business owners worldwide, showing them how to achieve world-class service and operations in their business. My first book “It’s 5 AM Go Home!” gives step by step guidance on how to throw amazing events and the soon to be launched Customer Service College will provide formal coursework for business owners who want to achieve 5-star service.I’ve discovered we all face the same problems, and that when we work together, we all win. So let’s work together!Michael@MichaelSNovilla.com
