Falling towards 2020 with the Entrepreneur Social Club at historic downtown St. Pete venue NOVA 535

Falling towards 2020

We are falling towards 2020, with October just days away. Wow, it’s already Thursday, September 26th. I find myself back again in the ESC hosting chair, at my 5-Star downtown St. Pete venue, NOVA 535. We are gathered to share our successes and failures, to laugh, learn, and work together. Towards a better future for us all. Not just a rosie, pie-in-the-sky bunch of dreamers, a group of hard-working, learn by continuous improvement, we who keep pushing, evolving and growing.  Small business owners. Those who do fail, and then get back up, harder, smarter and more determined than ever. All while having a tremendous amount of fun, and some incredibly wild, late-night adventures. Like our upcoming annual Halloween costume party, Novaween. This year, on Thursday, October 31, 2019, Halloween night itself, we will celebrate our 13th annual, Novaween. Get your Novaween 13 tickets now and support the ESC, especially before the price goes up!

40 plus years in the Real Estate business gives Kym Ottaviani the Real Estate Guru label in my book. Pictured below with Mr. Tall, Dark and Mysterious, Rob Quinn, a relative ESC newcomer. He’s into Data Consulting and helps his clients reduce their customer acquisition costs. I’m going to try out his Customer Acquisition Audit, and see what that reveals. He shares the joke, “I’m wasting half of my ad budget, I just don’t know which half.”

Below are newcomers, brother, and sister, who found the ESC on Facebook. Natalie Pommier is an Anthropologist who studies corporate responsibility and uses Applied Anthropology to help businesses become better citizens of planet Earth. Her frère Alexandre Pommier is a web architect with QuickSocial.us, that offers ‘Artificial Intelligence for your Business.’ Accueillir de nouveaux amis!

Next is our three amigos, Shawn Riley owner of Big Frog Custom T-Shirts, with Christopher Tolisano, owner of Best Day Fitness, and last but certainly not least, hospitality guru Roger Curlin III, founder of Club Savor. I love saving $$ each month with Club Savor, check it out!

Above is more of our delightful ESC crew, with Danielle Laura, Yoel Falcon, realtor Kathlene Seide, and Dan Diez holding the bag. Below is Corrine Falcon, Yoel’s lovely globetrotting wife, along with Liberty Adjusters manager, Ryan James.

Ryan asks us about finding a new name, which is plainer English searchable, to help prospective customers find him online. Jenifer Madson suggests ‘Property Claim Support’, and the group chimes in with ‘Property Claim Help’, ‘Insurance Claim Support’, and maybe finally landing on YourClaimsAdjustor.com. We also suggest he start a YouTube Channel, and to work with the local restoration companies to help them get more insurance $ for their renovation. I suggested he check out Professional Restoration Services of Tampa Bay.

Below with the monster arms, is newcomer (via WOM) Matt Siekbert, founder of Pack Animal Fitness. They opened on April 3, 2019, and they already have over 200 members so far, bravo! Matt was a crane operator who ballooned up to 305 pounds, was depressed, and decided to make a positive change. They offer free day pass, with monthly memberships around $35 / month. Next to Matt is Ken Van Baber, representing Meilus Muscular Therapy and Sports, welcome gents!

Hands up in celebration is Chris Delaney of Awaken the King Within, shares that he applied for TampaTechHire.com, thanks to our tech guru Chris Jenkins, which will pay for your tech person via using a $3.4M grant. Chris said they were successful landing a new tech hire, congrats!

Dan Novello, our favorite CPA returns, along with Jenifer Madson, an executive coach, and the author of three books: A Financial Minute, Living The Promises, and Head To Heart. She recently held 2 events at NOVA 535, and was highly impressed with Team NOVA 535, along with our ESC member caterers, Pineapple Espresso. Thank you, Jenifer, for your support of NOVA!

Speaking of my being thankful and grateful for love and support, a super-duper shout out to my two new brothers, Seth Mattox and Joe Miller, for their TWO TIME show-ups at BOTH my book signings, Tampa and Haslam’s Book Store in St. Pete! Love you two gentlemen, mucho gracias!!

Ragarding my It’s 5 AM Go Home book, Daniel Njiri, who does a weekly podcast, suggests using ACX to have voice-over talents audition for reading for my book. As he did for his FitBiz book. He also suggests leveraging up each podcast guest, so the following week’s guests it’s a bit more of an influencer. Smart. Daniel is one smart guy. Thanks!
