Spark & Hustle Wrap-up

Spark and Hustle Minneapolis

We recently had the pleasure of welcoming Tory Johnson of Spark & Hustle {of Good Morning America & Women for Hire, too} to Minneapolis for a one day conference focusing on women entrepreneurs.

From start to finish is was a wonderful conference, and we wish we could tell you each and every detail.  However, we know you don’t want to spend breakfast, lunch, and dinner reading this post – so here’s the abbreviated version…

Rhoda Olsen the CEO of Great Clips kicked off our day and  had so many valuable insights to share after so many years in business, here are just a few snipets:
  • The role of a leader is to grow and change herself
  • Leaders need to figure out the vision that drives them
  • Each of us needs to figure out what we need to do differently, on an individual basis, to be the leader that we want to be.
Jill Blashack Strahan, whom was featured last fall on LaunchHER, had all of our attention as she told her powerful business {and personal} story about Tastefully Simple
  • Keep a “Discovery Journal” — one for your personal life, home and business
  • write down what your “perfect” life would look like
  • Dream It. Believe It. Work It.

Tory Johnson did and incredible job of keeping the day lively, fun, and informative…

  • In sharing her “pink slip” moment, she reminded us all that the naysayers ask “Why would you give up a steady paycheck for something risky?”
  • When it comes to selling, know the difference between asking and hinting!
  • Every woman has the “spark”

It is always a huge joy when we get to meet some of our local LaunchHER League members in person! Here’s who we spotted at Spark & Hustle…

Tory still has many cities left on her Spark & Hustle tour.  If she is coming to a city near you, it would be a great business investment to attend one yourself.  Each city has it’s own charm because Tory finds local women {and a few men} in business to share their story at the conference.
