Employment Expert Tory Johnson Coming to a Town Near You

Spark and Hustle Tory Johnson You've seen her on ABC's'Good Morning America,' giving candid, no-nonsense advice to get you through these tough times. She's one of the nation's leading career experts, having founded Women For Hire, a New York-based women's recruiting and career expo company, 12 years ago after being suddenly fired from a communications job she loved.

She has helped connect thousands of professional women to help them launch and advance their careers, and is a New York Times bestselling author. Now she's taking her show on the road across eight U.S. cities.

No barriers, just results. That's the focus of the series she calls Spark & Hustle. The small-business conferences for current and aspiring entrepreneurs launching next month promise to teach those involved in small business how to go from concept to cash -- immediately.

"More and more entrepreneurs come to me for help starting or growing a business," says Johnson. "They have great ideas and they're good at what they do -- they've got the spark. What they're missing is the hustle, which means taking the best actions to make great things happen quickly."

Through keynotes, panel discussions, candid Q&As, and exercises, the conferences covers a broad range of business skills including branding, marketing, social media, pricing for profit, product manufacturing, distribution, developing profitable collaborations, identifying multiple revenue streams, franchising, selling successfully, and more -- all to increase your bottom line.

The intensive program is hosted by Johnson and sponsored nationally by SurePayroll and Mass Mutual.

Experts joining Johnson at the conferences include social media superstar Gary Vaynerchuk; Make Mine a Million's Nell Merlino; QVC cosmetics queen Laura Geller; founder of Seeking Sitters franchise Adrienne Kallweit; branding guru Samantha Ettus; maternity-wear designer Liz Lange; Stella & Dot's Jessica Herrin; Judge Glenda Hatchett; Dove Real Beauty Ambassador Jess Weiner; New York Times bestselling author Gretchen Rubin; and Just Between Friends franchise founder Shannon Wilburn.
