Entrepreneurs Galore

Entrepreneurs Galore

It’s Thursday, October 24, 2019, our last ESC meeting before Novaween 13. We’re here at our HQ, the 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. Since there are so many new faces, personalities, ideas, pitches, and passions here each week, this blog seems aptly titled, Entrepreneurs Galore.

ROLL CALL for OCTOBER 24, 2019

Hosted tonight by me, Michael Scott Novilla, Author of It’s 5 AM Go HomeI’m currently in Montreal, watching the snowfall as I type this, a bit behind in my storytelling due to my efforts, before during and after, towards Novaween 13. Wow, what a night THAT was. And yes, I did actually walk home at 6 am. Ask Adventure Chef Brent Shaver

A big THANK YOU to my brother Chris Novilla for running the show, the gorgeous Mayven Missbehavin, hellcat Nancy Alexander, Dr. Paul Bearer for their hosting and more, and Chris “Phreak Clown” Jenkins for all their extra efforts towards making #13 so so special!

Below is a quick glimpse at the on-stage Costume Contest Chaos where you can find our fav blood-soaked Clown.

She served in the Army, thank you, Jennifer! Just behind Jen is Dontriel Lawson of Laposid cleaning services, Marcel Gruber a newcomer from Austin Texas, and owner of some multi-family homes. The hilarious Christopher Tolisano with tongue out shares his Best Day Fitness company with us all.
