Become the Master of Your Own PR Workshop

Thursday, March 25 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm • Organized By The New Fashioned Co.


It’s time to stop being intimidated and start casually making the news!


If you’ve ever wished to see your name or business in a magazine, listed as a source on your favorite website, or even appear on TV—we’re here to say… it’s time to stop dreaming and start acting!

On March 25 from 12:00—2:00 CT, our The New Fashioned Co team is offering a two-hour interactive workshop (including hands-on learning and real-time feedback) to take all the guesswork out of PR so you can start making the news.

See, we think anyone can play the PR game (no degree or publicity experience required) and we’re dishing on all our secrets to tell you how. Plus, we invited special guest Jess Ekstrom, founder of Headbands of Hope, author of the bestselling Chasing the Bright Side, and host of the Business on the Bright Side podcast, to join us and tell you ALL about how you don’t have to have an expensive publicist to start getting coverage (she’s gotten tons of press on her own), what it looks like when you do finally hire one (yes, we are those expensive publicists) and so much more.

Join us on March 25 and we’ll help you:

  • Understand how to integrate PR into your communications strategy
  • Determine when you need it (and yes, even what the heck it is because your secret’s safe with us if you’re thinking, “I think I know what PR is but not really…”)
  • See how building your media bank builds your biz bank
  • Create the cornerstone of your PR efforts—your press kit—with real-time feedback on how to make it spectacular

Most of all, we are going to have FUN helping you see that your story is WORTHY—NEWSWORTHY. Because chances are you might be out there hiding and keeping your genius to yourself... nope. No more. It’s time to get that coveted media spotlight to swing your way.

And yes, we will record it for those of you dying to be there but juggling all the things. But if you want to get real time feedback on your press kit, join us LIVE.
