Social. Eat. Speak. (Guest Speaker: Jay Taffet,­m)

Join us for our weekly casual business mingle lunch that will be hosted at Little Gem Saloon which is centrally located in downtown New Orleans on the corner of Rampart and Poydras.

Come from your home office or office, suit or jeans.  I personally will be casually dressed as I work from home (or the restaurant kitchen).

This luncheon we welcome Guest Speaker, Jay Taffet with


Jay Taffet's first consulting engagement was for his parents in their start-up business (that ultimately became their career) followed by literally hundreds of clients over 20 years.  He has also taught entrepreneurial classes at the Chamber of Commerce and local universities and designed curriculum for community "incubator" projects.  Today, Jay consults for entrepreneurs engaged in every phase of business formation and management in all types of industries and has assembled a network of specialized professionals in IT, graphic design, law, accounting and risk management to ensure his clients have access to all the resources, tools and strategies necessary to start, manage and grow a successful business.


The secret to creating a business and managing its growth is not just the market, its trends or momentum, but the strengths of the principal, the passion behind the plan and the organization of the concept. Steven L Morris Ventures has created a business advisory service that focuses on the entrepreneur as the creator, the plan as the road map and organization as the platform and has developed the tools, strategies and systems that fit the personality and the idea.  Regardless of industry, the success of any business is rooted in this perspective of people andplatform or, more specifically, passion andplan.  At Steven L Morris Ventures, we get that and we teach's your idea and future, and our commitment to both that makes our entrepreneurs successful.
