DAYKA ROBINSON ON 11ALIVE (NBC)! July 21, 2011 So now you find out why my wrap up post from last week was late! Here’s the little secret I’ve been keeping–while out thrifting last Saturday, I was contacted by a reporter from the local NBC affiliate (11 Alive) looking to do a story on my Etsy store, Vintage Styled Home! Of course I was beyond thrilled and after taking an extra day of rest, I kicked into a frenzy trying to make sure things around my house were together in preparation for the camera crew. I never received a firm air date (which is why I didn’t want to mention it here and jump the gun), so imagine my surprise when I received a late night email (Tuesday night) from a past client telling me she saw me on the 11 o’clock news–then I woke up yesterday to a Facebook comment from another friend telling me she saw me on the morning news! I hate that I didn’t catch it live, but I’m ecstatic about all of this airtime! I am so, so grateful and thankful for this great press! One of my goals for the year was to really push myself and put my businesses (design & resale) into high gear which specifically included printed & televison press. I’m a firm believer in writing down goals and being specific, and I know that it’s made all of the difference! Please watch the video when you have a moment–I’d love to hear your feedback!*Also, I’ll be adding refinished furniture to my store very soon–make sure you check back often!* Share this: Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window) Related 16 Comments on DAYKA ROBINSON ON 11ALIVE (NBC)! drreginia July 21, 2011 at 6:16 am (8 years ago) What an amazing accomplishment!
