We had the good fortune of connecting with Elle Nucci and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Elle, what habits do you feel helped you succeed?
I find a combination of factors lead to success. Being honest: Honesty plays a huge factor in my business, I can’t lie and say I can do something that I am unsure I can. I never take that risk. Paying on time: I have experienced it too many times on the other end when people dont or cant pay. I find it unacceptable not to pay vendors or employees on time, if your client paid then you can pay. Communication: I have never understood “ghosting”in personal or business matters, If you got a better price, or knew someone or didn’t like my vibe just say it. As business people we learn from constructive criticism and grow from those experiences
What should our readers know about your business?
I am the Founder of EN Events, an LA based beverage catering and events company that specializes in corporate events and Music Festivals from staffing to fully licensed Bar Services. I offer a versatility that not all companies can and that stems from many years of working my way up from being a bartender at nightclubs to working behind the scenes in venue management. As a festival fan myself, I’ve seen the best and worst practices happening in real time and bring that knowledge to my clients to create the best execution of their vision. Before going out on my own, my entire career had been spent working for others. As a bartender, event manager, ultimately running a company, but at the end of the day I was not able to really do what I wanted and believed in. One day, I just realized I was too passionate to just do as I’m told, so I took the leap and EN Events was born. There were of course naysayers who said, no don’t do it, just take the check and let others deal with the hassle of payroll and insurance, but I knew I had the skills to make it happen. It just needed to finally feel like the time was right and I had to take the risk.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
My hangouts are Wahlburgers on Sunset well because I love Donnie Wahlberg and NKOTB :), Le Petit Four for the perfect outdoor lunch and Harlowe for a nice dinner. Shopping at the Grove. I also love a good Casino trip. Probably take a drive to Harrahs SoCal and spend the night.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to shout out my Brother Danny, who was my mentor when I started this business as well as before and after. He always makes me dig deep before making decisions of any kind.
