Michael S Novilla
Hello! I’m Entrepreneur Michael Scott Novilla, born on April Fools Day in beautiful downtown St. Pete, Florida. I’ve always loved learning, exploring, and making things better. Since completing my MBA in 1993, I’ve bought, renovated, and managed 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. Since opening in 2008, I’ve produced over 2,000 5-Star weddings, ceremonies, fundraisers, fashion shows and live events. 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, while Globetrotting (91 countries and counting), I’m using my expertise 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,” (July, 2019) is a hilarious, fun to read adventure story, and guide to producing your next 5-Star wedding, magical celebration, and most memorable corporate event. Next out (2020) is my World’s Favorite Words, a beautifully illustrated travelers’ guide book. Cheers, Good Luck to Us all; oh and Let’s Party!
