The Thank You Games with Modern Business Associates

Modern Business Associates at NOVA 535

Saturday evening August 8th, 2015 local St. Petersburg based business MBA, short for Modern Business Associates, hosted a celebration reminiscent of Casino Royale, here in beautiful downtown St. Petersburg, Florida at modernized, swanky historic venue NOVA 535. It was a celebratory night full of laughs, cheers, gaming, raffles, hugs, thankfulness and so much more. See MBA is the modern, evolved type of organization that realizes, at it’s core, that it’s all about people – the people who make up their team and clients. That team was celebrating their recent award from the Tampa Bay Business Journal “Best Place to Work!” Congratulations Team MBA!!

“Focus Where it Counts” is the strong call to action utilized by the MBA website. “Chances are you didn’t go into business to manage HR-related tasks. Yet, if you are a typical business owner, a good portion of your time is probably spent managing non-revenue producing tasks, like payroll, benefits and human resources issues. Modern Business Associates (MBA) removes the burden of these time-consuming and costly functions – and helps you refocus your energy on the areas where you excel.”  As a small business owner myself, I know all too well how difficult it is managing the non-revenue producing tasks – thank goodness for MBA! Why don’t you contact MBA and let the experts make your business life so much easier?!

Any party is only as good as the team, again it’s all about the people, us humans, who we choose to work and associate with. Success by association. The exciting night of casino gaming was produced by longtime industry leader DANMAR Productions. DANMAR is short for Dan and Mary, hubby and wife team that’s been providing high quality gaming services for decades. NOVA loves DANMAR!
