It's been almost 6 years connecting with like-minded business professionals thorough MGM Friends. With the support and relationships built through our organization, I felt more empowered than ever to reach for the stars. This year I started my own business, Bizzee Bee Marketing LLC and could not be more proud to be part of a culture created to give back to the community. Everyone loves doing business with people they know, like and trust. Trust me, you will come to love MGM Friends (MGMer's) as much as I do. Join us!!

I am so glad I found MGM Friends, since going to these networking events I have met great people and contacts which have referred business to me and has help grow my business.
What’s is also great there is no pressure to attend these networking events or cost/fees. What a great group of people!

Too often do we, while networking, have the tendency to pounce on a sales opportunity. I would suggest that it is instinctive. We hear those trigger words and suddenly our eyes widened and here it comes, sales pitch city, straight ahead. Woogie along with the friends that I’ve made through MGM have retaught me the fulfillment in helping someone with something you don’t receive a commission for and always looking to help and connect people first. And when that feeling I described above is coming, to pause, relax, know that you have a potential client in front of you, and treat them in a way that adds value to their life first and then yours. !


MGM Friends is there for your success and showing up has it’s benefits of food, fun, and fellowship of business professional collaborations!

The MGMs have given me opportunities to increase exposure for our business by presenting at monthly meetings and even facilitating a monthly meet and greet. So far, these new relationships helped me to build my clientele, grow my influence in Tampa Bay and connect other business professionals!!!!!

MGM Friends is unlike any other networking group out there. I am fairly new to the business world and MGM Friends has been a major contributor to my success thus far. If you’re looking to build strong relationships and meet some great people, I highly recommend visiting one of the many meetings per month!

MGM is an outstanding networking organization in the Tampa Bay area. Since day one when MGM began in October 2014 the opportunity to network and build professional relationships has been fantastic. Whenever Troy University can assist business professionals with more education is very rewarding.
