M Marketing Inc: Travel is good for the soul!

In business and in life, we feel that there are several things that make it extraordinary; good people, a set of values and the opportunity to have experiences outside of one’s comfort zone. We may be biased, but we believe here at M Marketing Inc, we have all three! Our team is some of the most energetic and passionate people you’ll ever meet, our integrity and standards for our client are sky high and our commitment to traveling is a dream for most.

Last weekend, our Management team left the cold weather of the East Coast and ventured South to spend a 4 day weekend in Atlanta! To say that our trip was an amazing work-cation would be an understatement. Between conferences, socializing and sightseeing we were ready to get back to the office and apply all that we learned! We asked our Managers to give us the scoop on what all they did in “Hotlanta” and we must say, we’re pretty jealous and ready for the next business trip out there!

Starting on Thursday, our team flew into the city and began preparing for the greatest start to the weekend ever – a St. Patrick’s themed mixer with marketing and sales professionals from all over the country! Heading to a popular spot in Atlanta called Monday Night Brewing, our team and about 75 others enjoyed unique beers including one that tasted like chocolate milk (crazy, we know!) and networked the night away!

Friday was followed by a full day of meetings and motivational speakers and the takeaways we left with were so inspiring! Between sessions on commitment, mentality and performance, our M Marketing Inc Management Team is more excited than ever about the work we’re doing for our energy client. Friday night our conference took us to a rented out comedy club complete with 4 stand up comics and we think our sides are still sore from laughing so hard! They reminded us to stick to what we’re good at and never try improv as a career (haha)!

The fun continued Saturday as we ditched the suits and ties and put on our gym clothes for some games of paintball! Seeing as how we’re all super competitive, we got to put our athleticism to the test and try not to get bruised. Like true Atlantians, we had lunch in Piedmont Park, went to the Dark Horse Tavern and then to Club Havana; all popular and local attractions in the city. Did we mention our Marketing Manager, Kate, even got up on stage and sang “Ocean Avenue” by Yellowcard!?

As we were on our way home and reflecting on our trip, we thought about the exceptional city we had just visited and everyone we networked with over the weekend and were reminded just how good travel is for the soul. Stay tuned to see more blogs on our team and also where M Marketing Inc goes next for work…SPOILER ALERT – it’s Texas and the Dominican Republic!!
