Join the HOST! Committee
Spark & Hustle draws on community and builds camaraderie unlike any other conference series. The attendees Tory Johnson attracts to her events are a rare breed. Yes, they’re serious about small business and they’re eager to expand their influence and boost their bottom line. But there’s a whole lot more. These are kind, curious, nice, fun, quirky, candid, determined, loyal, big-hearted, really good women—plus a handful of great men. They’re the people you want to hang out with and do business with. You don’t find that everywhere.
If this describes people you know, then we’d love for you to join the Spark & Hustle Host Committee and become a part of Tory’s Team at the event in your area.
It’s pretty simple: register yourself for at least one event and then refer registrants by reaching out to the people you know and believe would benefit from attending. (We’ll gladly send you tips on how to easily accomplish this.)
As a token of our appreciation, we’ve created a sensational benefits package to honor your support.
If you’re interested and ready to rock, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org letting us know which event(s) you’ve registered for and include your name, email, phone, location, a bit about you personally and professionally. Also tell us why you’re an ideal Spark & Hustle host to join Tory’s Top 20. You’ll hear back within 24 hours tops.

In May 2010, Robyn and Dallas Jones opened the first CherryBerry Self-Serve Yogurt Bar. Both police officers during a layoff crisis, they wanted to begin a small, family-owned business that would support their family of five children. With no original intention of expanding, they were met with success as their first store began to boom in the Broken Arrow market. After being approached many times concerning expansion, they made the decision to begin expanding the CherryBerry brand. Two years later, CherryBerry has more than 100 locations, with 56 on the way and many more locations currently under contract. @CherryBerry4All
