Who We Are

We are a small, boutique sales consulting firm—based out of Nashville, Tennessee—but traveling coast to coast to meet the needs of our clients. In any business, nothing happens until someone sells something. Skillway helps our partners hit and exceed their sales goals.

Sales. It’s what we do.

At Skillway®, we trust in the power of relationships and teach relational selling. That’s means, among other things, that we love a good conversation and we love meeting new sales professionals. You’ll find plenty of information on how we can partner with you on this site, but we’re looking forward to hearing from you. So fill out the contact form or pick up the phone and give us call!

Our Founders

Dew Tinnin President and Founder of SkillwayDew Tinnin – President

a.k.a. Sales Coach Dew

Dew was born and raised in Minnesota. She now calls Nashville home, although she works from anywhere (especially if they have a beach). Dew got the sales bug selling Girl Scout Cookies and never looked back. Dew’s been in sales or sales training (or, like now,  a combination of the 2) for her entire career. She was a National Sales Trainer and producing Branch Manager at Wells Fargo Home Mortgage. She’s been a sales coach and consultant since 2011 and made the big leap to start her own company in 2016. (You can check out her full bio here.)

Shane Tinnin – COO

a.k.a. The Hat

Shane was born and raised in Oklahoma, and like most small-town country boys in the 1980’s, he became obsessed with… writing software. He wrote his high school’s grading system at 16, redesigned his county’s WIC program at 17, and had been a full-time software engineer in the gaming industry (casinos, not zombie-shooting) for two years by the time he got his B.S. in software engineering at 20.

Shane was an executive in the staffing software and mortgage industries and now has 15+ years experience solving other businesses’ problems as a consultant.

Fun Fact: Shane is also a singer/songwriter who has opened for Eric Church, Little Big Town, and others.
