WE SALUTE YOU TINA BOAZ MURRAY!
“Failure is Not an Option”, reads the sign in the main hallway at Mind Dance Marketing, Inc. Those words inspired Tina Boaz Murray to start Mind Dance Marketing (MDM), a boutique marketing and brand management company, at the tender or some might say naive age of 26.
The original vision was to deliver world-class service coupled with the genuine desire to surprise and delight clients while helping them reach new levels of success.
Prior to launching Mind Dance Marketing, Tina was the Account Manager with Short Communications public relations firm. She was responsible for account services, marketing and communication plans, community development, special events, and increased brand awareness.
Today, Mind Dance Marketing is focused on building strategic marketing and activation plans for QRS clients across the country – including 12 Chick-fil-A markets. As the business matured clients brought us unique challenges that forced MDM into new territory. We like to say yes. We thrive on producing results that make choosing us the next time around an easy decision. As a direct result of client requests we launched MDM Mascot and MDM Mobile.
Work-life balance is not just something Tina read about in magazines. She cares for her husband and family as THE MOST important “clients” in her life. She recently celebrated 12 years of marriage to her husband Greg and has three daughters. “The place that allows me to re-energize my creativity is a hammock at out ranch where there is no cell service or TV. The pursuit of a good work-life balance has led to me to drive the world famous monster truck Grave Digger, hatchet throwing lessons, and skeet shooting,” says Tina.
“Knowing that the happiest people are those who live to serve others helps me understand that when I can do something I should. It helps me to realize that when I don’t know how to do something that a) sounds like fun or b) needs to get done I am up for the challenge. I surround myself with people who want to take this journey with me. I look for people who can make me better.”
Tina is a graduate of Houston Baptist University and has additional training in Corporate Communication Development, Corporate Consulting, and Total & Continuous Quality Management. She served as past president of The Women’s Fund for Health Education and Research, Communication Chair for the American Heart Association Jump Rope for Heart program, member of Public Relations Society of America, and Phi Mu Fraternity Alumni Association.
