Beautiful Skin and a New Lexus

When we booked Rodan + Fields for an awards celebration party a few months ago, I didn’t immediately recognize the brand name. My skin care regimen is eating well, lots of clean water and plenty of organic coconut oil, so I’m a bit in the dark as to which brands are what. Along the planning path I learned who Rodan + Fields was and that they take good care of their people. One of those lovely people is Erin King, who I got to know a bit as we discussed details, timelines, and floorplans. We also had to decide where we should park the Lexus 460 here inside of our historic venue (built 1920) NOVA 535. Her associate Heather Tuck (congrats Heather!!) was receiving the gorgeous new Lexus as part of her compensation and bonus package! WOW! So I suggested setting it along our gorgeous, red clay block walls. Makes for such fabulous photo opportunities which you’ll certainly enjoy….read on! 2016-09-15-rodanfields-at-dtsp-venue-nova-535-3639 Continue reading

Publix is where shopping and working is a pleasure

Publix is where shopping and working is a pleasure. This I’ve experienced, from every angle, as Publix hosted their annual awards banquet here last Monday, April 20th, 2015. See as a young man I had the pleasure of working at our local Publix here in St. Petersburg, Florida for a bit more than a year. I bagged groceries, cleaned the store and learned how a great organization that is focused on customer service get’s it right. I also made pals with another young man named Jeff. Well I went on into real estate and am now running my own customer service based company, NOVA 535 Unique Event Space, here in downtown St. Pete, Florida, and Jeff, well he stayed at Publix. Fast forward about 30 years later and here we are.2015 04-20 Publix-at-venue-NOVA535-downtown-StPete-69

Pure Romance Awards Party

Pure Romance Awards Party
at NOVA 535 Unique Event Space.

Pure Romance by Mia Rivero. Mia and her delightful ladies held their annual Pure Romance Awards Party here at NOVA 535 Unique Event Space on Sunday July 2, 2014 in beautiful downtown St. Pete. There were many award categories, for sales, most improvement, best this and hurrah for that. OK so I was a bit busy snapping all of these photos and not completely paying attention to the small print. What I did learn was that these Pure Romance ladies were all a delightful mix of fun and professional, friendly and eager to learn and grow. Mia has built herself a fantastic team, and it seems like there is nowhere to go but up up UP!
