Here is a little more info…

Look in the dictionary under “well-connected marketers” and you will discover Tonya Hofmann’s photo. 

Being well-connected is a side benefit of her years of experience in retail sales, training,

network management, and private/public sector consulting.  Tonya’s effervescence comes from

a genuine love of people and intense drive to help them achieve their potential.  When you meet

her for the first time you will not hear “all about her” but she will ask, “How can I help YOU!” 

This is typical of how she councils her clients to re-energize their business life.  It is all about

helping others.


Tonya believes in showing her audiences throughout the world how to develop such areas as

unique brands, multiple income streams throughout their business, sales and leveraged connections. 

She gives her audience new ideas and help them transform their bottom line to grow and explode

their business immediately following the presentation!  “I don’t just talk it, I help you walk it!”

is not just a slogan but a code of conduct and ethics.  Each presentation is designed to give her audience the maximum exposure to the ideas and formulas that anyone can turn around and implement. 


Tonya is the CEO and Founder of the Public Speakers Association!  She launched the organization in January of 2013 and now enjoys visiting her chapters across the US and Canada.  She is well known and sought after across the globe as a Keynote, Motivational, Emcee, Trainer, Workshop Presenter or whatever it takes to meet someone new and  change someone’s life!  She has two rules for her organization and life… Only Nice People Allowed and Only Imperfect People Please!


Tonya has won the eWomenNetwork International Conference Business Match Maker of the Year award in 2008.  She has been nominated numerous times for such honors as the Austin Business Journal’s 2014 CEO of the Year Award and 2011 Profiles in Power award and The Best Business Connectors in Dallas by the U.S. Small Business Conference and the upcoming Global Influencer of the Year Award for the 2015 Global Connectors Summit.


She went from being a Radio personality to the new 2014 Host of the Tonya Hofmann’s Fabulous TV Show!


She is a multi-book Best Selling author with her book “A Client A Day the Coffee Shop Way!”, “Own Your Fabulousness”, the PSA’s Compilation book “Change Your World”, Soar 2 Success” and “25 Brilliant Speakers”!  She speaks on these great topics which covers finding, receiving, closing and keeping new clients!  Tonya found that most people getting into business for the first time or even a great sales position comes across the dreaded “I’ve gone through all my family and friends: Now what!” time.  Tonya gently walks her readers through a step by step process and even gives incredible bonus segments to help with personal development.

Her “Woman” owned company, Your Local City, Inc., creates solutions from micropreneurs to corporate and government agencies from website design to software development.  Her connection factor into some of the most amazing trainers also created a solution for new and innovative corporate and government trainings that creates longevity through the unique software program designed to accomplish the training’s goals.

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!
