How to Get Product on a TV Table Top Segment

Tin Shingle's Member Manager and PR Coordinator, Ashley Marie Cox, rocks her second TuneUp Takeover with dear friend of Tin Shingle, Sabina Hitchen. Sabina is a co founder of Tin Shingle who continues to rock the PR world with the launching of her new brand Sabina Knows in 2016.

In her latest endeavors, Sabina has launched the curated TV segment #SmallBizBigIdea, where she shows off favorite products on TV from small businesses like yours. Being on the other side of the camera - and the pitching process - Sabina reveals where businesses slip up when pitching their products to an on-air stylist, and what the winning PR pitches had in them to help her pick their product to bring on TV. Check out some of Sabina's previous Table Top Segments on Great Day Washington where she http://www.wusa9.com/features/great-day-washingtonfeatures unique and affordable picnic products as well as glamorous summer accessories.

We are talking about the whole process of how to pitch a TV or “Table Top" opportunity, to what Sabina looks for in product pitches, to what do you do after you do get the press. Will you be there?

Step Up & Step In: Starting Your Own Business

Christine Agro, creator of The Awaken Method and fellow Tin Shingle member, is hosting a series of video classes called Step Up & Step In.  It is a series that has launched this week, with different videos airing at different times.  Each session delivers powerful and insightful guidance to show you how to follow your inner guidance and live the life you were meant to live. Eighteen different experts share how they stepped into their inner guidance with regards to business, health and wellness, everyday life and more, with each interview lasting about 30 minutes.

Tin Shingle's co-founder, Katie Hellmuth Martin, is excited and honored to be included as an expert in one of these videos, which airs Thursday May 25th at 1PM EST. With her unique perspective on the challenges and triumphs of running and growing a business, Katie will share tips and tools on how you can succeed as well. You can register now to reserve a virtual seat. All video conferences are available live and 24 hours after to watch a replay.

Revisiting Resolutions

We are already well into the fifth month of the year and it’s a great time to check-in on your 2017 Tin Shingle Resolutions.  Have you taken steps forward? Are you as far along as you hoped to be? If you are looking at what you set out to accomplish this year and you are noticing that, despite good intentions and despite having a plan to move forward, you just haven’t quite gotten as far as you’d hoped, it’s time to look at what might be blocking you from achieving your goals.

What you experienced when you were growing up can have a profound impact on your ability to create and manifest what you want in your life.  Whether you were told that you couldn’t, or that there was a limit on how much one should have, or maybe you were supported fully and that created a space of fear to do it on your own, this all boils down to energetic blocks that can make moving forward challenging.

The good news is, this is part of a deeper aspect of life. It’s about how you grow as a spiritual being.  Your life lessons, those things that will help you step into greater and greater levels of conscious awareness, are a part of your day-to-day life, and they often show up as blocks.  If you are noticing that you can’t seem to get to where you want to be, or the goal post seems to keep moving and is always just out of reach; chances are, you’ve got some lessons to learn. By looking at the energy of your blocks, and by moving that energy out, you can take larger strides in moving forward.

I’m excited to be joining you on May 24th for a Tin Shingle Tune-Up on your resolutions. I’ll be talking about what some of the more common blocks are, where they come from and doing a little bit of energy work with you to help you clear them, right on the call. Register now for free and listen live on Wednesday at 12 PM EST. All tuneups are recorded and available for download but, are free 24/7 for All Access Members.
