[FOUNDERS SECRETS] How Hang-O-Matic Got Through to Buyers and Onto Shelves (Recorded Live 1/11/17)

One of the most frequently bemoaned topics we hear about from our Tin Shingle circles of business owners is the issue of getting into stores. The shelves of big box stores and boutiques are highly coveted by many designers and manufacturers. For many, these shelves are the way they stay in business (versus direct online sales alone).

We stepped into the trenches of business owners to hear from Karina Rabin, the co-founder of Hang-O-Matic, the all-in-one picture hanging tool. She aggressively got onto the shelves of many big box stores, including Ace Hardware, The Container Store, Bed Bath and Beyond, and others. Speaking of BBB, when Karina and her husband got their first order from the giant retailer, they didn't have the capital to immediately fulfill the order. So they sold their house - while raising their new family.

As a Virtual Assistant (VA), I partner with entrepreneurs and small businesses offering administrative and marketing support to allow business owners more time in their schedule to focus on other things that are important to them. They can do this without having to hire a full time assistant and pay unnecessary expenses such as salary, benefits, office space and equipment, etc… In the end not only does the business owner save time and money, but they are more productive, more focused and have the time that they desire to work on building their business, spending time with family and loved ones and doing other things they enjoy.

With over a decade of creative and administrative experience as well as an A.A.S in Visual Communications, I’m passionate about learning and staying on top of the latest trends in modern business and online marketing to continuously help my clients grow and reach new levels in their business.

In 2009 I was fortunate enough to move myself and my family back to my hometown of Hancock, MI which was a long time dream of mine come true. I am so excited to have the ability to do what I love in a place that is so dear to my heart.

When I’m not working, I love spending time with my husband and daughter and my three cats. I also enjoy nature photography, reading and creative writing.

We stepped into the trenches of business owners to hear from Karina Rabin, the co-founder of Hang-O-Matic, the all-in-one picture hanging tool. She aggressively got onto the shelves of many big box stores, including Ace Hardware, The Container Store, Bed Bath and Beyond, and others. Speaking of BBB, when Karina and her husband got their first order from the giant retailer, they didn't have the capital to immediately fulfill the order. So they sold their house - while raising their new family.
