Last month the dynamic duo of Katie and Rosie, earned a major national bonus of $10,000. This bonus was intended to increase the number of high-performing team members working in locations like ours across the nation and close out 2017 strongly. As team players who want to make sure that 3MP Atlanta has every competitive advantage, both Katie and Rosie used this competition to gain national recognition and a lot of cash!!
Their strategy –
Outwork yourself and your competition. It starts with knowing what goals you are going to achieve and breaking down the actions needed to get there. Both Katie and Rosie know day-by-day, down to the minute, what activities they need to be doing. They are constantly tracking metrics so they can adjust their day as needed. Not only are both ladies tracking their personal KPIs, they are analyzing the competition and adjusting as needed. “We aim to be better than the week before and the week before that. We want to beat our best.”
Help everyone and take personal ownership. Katie and Rosie wouldn’t have earned this major bonus had they solely focused on their own goals. Competition or not, both take a vested interest in each team member’s success at 3MP Atlanta. They go beyond their job descriptions to get to know each individual’s goals and aspirations. They carve time each week to meet with people one-on-one to provide guidance towards goals and give advice on coaching and mentoring others. This was pivotal in earning the bonus. They were able to work closely with team members to impact growth, which was a major aspect of the competition.
Have clear lines of communications. 3MP Atlanta has an open door policy. It’s critical that every team member feels that they have a voice and can input ideas. Both Katie and Rosie make sure that the rest of the decision-making team is aware of strengths, weaknesses, obstacles, and threats. They also seek coaching and advice from the team, especially when they are not seeing the results the desire.
Decide. When the competition was announced, Katie and Rosie decided they were going to win. Once that decision is made, in business and in life, everything else takes care of itself.
Congratulations to both Katie and Rosie. We couldn’t think of a more deserving pair. See the moment we learned that they won huge in the video below!

The statistics are dumbfounding. According to Operation Smile, every three minutes, a child is born with a cleft lip or cleft palate somewhere around the world. If left untreated, the seriousness of this condition can lead to problems with eating, speech development, socialization, and even the loss of hearing. For children born with this condition in the United States, the surgery usually takes place early, limiting the potential complications. For children born in third world countries, however, access to this life-improving surgery is limited, cost prohibitive, and, far too often, unsafe.
At 3MP Atlanta, we are thrilled to be collaborating once again with Operation Smile to help children around the world receive important surgeries to fix cleft lips and palates. The goal of Operation Smile, started in 1982 by Dr. William Magee, Jr and his wife Kathleen, is to ensure that no child is left without access to safe surgical options for correcting cleft lips or cleft palates. Our team knows that without a proper smile we can’t be successful. We are beyond excited to help the foundation raise money to provide life changing smiles across the world.
This year, 3MP Atlanta set up a tailgate for the cause and canvassed Sun Trust Park during a Braves double-header in early June to collect donations. We cooked hot dogs, played games, and raised awareness. Our team was able to put the skills we teach into good use by giving back. We are pleased to announce that, thanks to Braves Country, we raised enough money to cover the cost of FIVE cleft palate surgeries for children around the world!
Better Life. Better Business. That is 3MP Atlanta’s motto. In an effort to give each of our team members an incredible opportunity, we utilize our well-structured training program. By using the processes we have in place, our team members are able to develop life-long skills essential to successful careers.
Cameron Duncan, who earned his promotion to assistant management in July, took full advantage of the opportunity provided to him at 3MP Atlanta.
Duncan, who is an Alpine, AL native who studied Accounting at Tuskegee University, joined the 3MP Atlanta team after finishing his professional baseball career with the Cardinals in mid-2015. He was attracted to the ability to learn new skills and teach others what he had mastered. “This job has taught me how to talk to anyone in any facet of life,” says Duncan. In quickly earning his promotion to Assistant Management, Duncan was able to help oversee the operations side of the business, working with large telecommunication companies and running a larger team than he had previously. Duncan had the opportunity to work side by side with Michael Palomba, executive at 3MP Atlanta, who has extensive experience running successful marketing and sales firms. With his new training and ability to perform for the client, Duncan was able to earn a market opportunity in Louisville, KY. In December, he was opened his own location and hand selected his own team to help expand.
3MP Atlanta will perform at the highest level for our clients. Helping them expand into new markets allows us to do just that. We are incredibly excited to see where Cameron and his team take the Louisville market in 2017.

3MP Atlanta, a marketing firm located in West Midtown Atlanta, provides the opportunity for each individual on our team to learn and develop their skills in sales, leadership and management. It is exciting when someone on the 3MP Atlanta team has an invitation to share their knowledge gained from working with our company. That happened two weeks ago when Tuskegee University extended an invite to Cameron Duncan, Assistant Manager at 3MP Atlanta, and Cash Oliver, a top Account Manager, to speak to students at their Alumni Weekend.
The Alumni weekend hosted by Tuskegee University is a series of events to celebrate and learn from former students of the prestigious school. It was at the school’s Alumni Forum that Cameron and Cash, both alumni of Tuskegee University (class of 2014), had opportunity to speak with students with a question and answer format. It was informal so students felt comfortable asking their insights on topics like obtaining a job after graduation, entrepreneurship, and job hunting in general.
“What I like most about [the event] is seeing how college kids are. They are excited about their future but they are scared about it at the same time. They all want to do something better with their life but are afraid that they won’t get the opportunity. So what they do is settle for something comfortable, going back home, or working a normal job even if they have all this experience. They are scared of branching out, scared of making decisions. So actually giving them the confidence that I was that same way helps. Make a decision, take a risk.”
-Cameron Duncan, Assistant Manager at 3MP Atlanta.
Both Cameron and Cash were excited to have the opportunity to impart advice to students at the University. The team at 3MP Atlanta is proud of them and we are grateful to have them a part of the company’s leadership team.

What is the value of a smile? For most, that answer is, “There is no cost.” But, for children in under-developed countries whose families cannot afford the surgery to fix a cleft lip or pallet, the cost is much greater. When children in the United States are born with the condition, it’s typically an easy and quick fix. For children in some of these countries, they don’t typically receive the reparation surgery at birth. This affects their ability to eat and interact socially. Some are shunned and some grow up only knowing their community for fear of travelling. Operation Smile was founded to combat that. They provide surgeries to children and young adults in various parts of the world, making this life changing surgery easily accessible. It is with great honor and excitement that 3MP Atlanta was able to host an event in June to raise money to help cover the costs of these surgeries.
At 3MP Atlanta, a smile is part of our job. We meet and handle client acquisition. It is vital that our team provides a positive and professional interaction each time. Knowing how important a smile is, we excitedly dove into putting together an Operation Smile field day, which was hosted in Grant Park. We put together a team to plan and organize the event, led by top account manager, Cash Oliver. With his leadership, we were able to put together knockerball, face painting, corn hole, and food for the event.
On the day of the event, we arrived, set up, and started grilling out. There were 50 plus people in attendance and our team also collected donations from other park-goers. Teams were able to play corn hole while food was being grilled. Spectators watched on as knockerball, a sport in which each player straps on an inflatable ball and knocks each other around in a game like soccer, started and had quite a few laughs as the teams entered combat! Overall, the event was a great place for the community to gather and we were able to fund two complete operations with our efforts.
3MP Atlanta would like to give a special thanks to Cobb Knockerball who aided in our efforts to raise money and to Michael Palomba who purchased food and beveragesfor the event. Want to contribute? Click here.
3MP Atlanta is a leader in outsourced customer acquisition for Fortune 500 companies. We are dedicated to establishing better channels of marketing communications between our clients and their customers. With our proven go-to-market strategies, we drastically increase the ROI of our clients marketing campaigns. Due to our high standards and amazing track record, 3MP Atlanta was selected by its client to become the training model for new partners.
3MP Atlanta has a well established record of performance and clear process of operating and training, so it was no surprise that back in April we became the clients’ training model.
“I feel we were selected to be the training [model] because our team and style is very simple and ridiculously systematic. It would be very similar to the San Antonio Spurs approach to basketball. Fundamentally sound across-the-board, easy to duplicate. That’s how you win championships and build dynasties.
-Michael Palomba, President
With our client’s recognition, 4 different teams trained with 3MP Atlanta. They got insight into the day to day operations, our systematic training program, and got to gain insight on client relations. Each member of the traveling teams got dedicated trainers who they shadowed for the first few days and then after completing a day of their own, they met back up with their trainer for follow up and further training.
The honor to have the client recognize us for not only our hard work but for the excellence that we achieve in our accomplishments is the fuel driving us to realize our 2016 goals. We are excited to help our client expand, knowing that it will help our team develop the skills we need in order to expand further.
