Your Trainer: Tonya Hofmann

So who is Tonya and why has she decided to open up her knowledge to train the next amazing group of life changers? Well, that is exactly it… she wants people to go out and change the world! That is why the motto for her organization (the Public Speakers Association) is “Change the World from the Front of the Room!”tm

Her belief is that each of us has not only an opportunity to create real and significant movement in this world but is incredibly Selfish if we don’t! She launched the Public Speakers Association in 2013 after years of owning her own 25+ networking group organization and learned what it took to create momentum in people’s lives. She opted for the speaking realm because she could see every time a speaker presented at one of her groups, that her members gained HUGE knowledge and thought that if she could help speakers market themselves more and grow their business to be incredibly profitable, that more and more amazing life changers would take up the cause.

With her knowledge of Marketing, Sales, Business Growth, Training, Speaking and getting to know personally event planners throughout the speaking world that she could make a HUGE impact on helping YOU gain real momentum.

“I hate the fact that people spend thousands of dollars with “experts” and gain no real movement to speak more, make money and build the data base online to make it all happen. So I’m here to make an immediate impact with an affordable option that anyone could jump in on! It is also my focus to help you avoid all the money pits to navigate what is worth you spending money on and avoid the rest!

I can’t wait to get to know YOU and help you make decisions that will truly help!” Tonya Hofmann

Tonya’s training was so invaluable, that I immediately signed up for her next class.  You definitely do not want to miss the rare opportunity to be a part of a seminar that can be so transformational for your business!

I had one A-HA moment after another during Tonya’s presentation! Her advice on how to create multiple income streams was, hands down, some of the best information I’ve heard. She was gracious enough to share her web “secrets” to getting more clients and making top dollar for our invaluable information. Most of all, she oozes compassion and truly wants to help people achieve their best!
