Show Us Your Spark!


You don’t need us to tell you that the recession walloped small businesses across the nation. But we know that women are tougher than the times—and we want to honor those who have vowed to live fearlessly no matter the obstacles in their way.

To celebrate the first-ever Texas Conference for Women and Spark & Hustle Small Business Boot Camp, November 16 in Houston, we want to give YOU a spotlight on our stage to wow an audience of 6,000 women with your small business success.

Here’s how it works: Tell us why you have what it takes to soar in challenging economic times. We’re not looking at your industry or revenue; instead, we’re focused on how you’re living fearlessly as an awe-inspiring entrepreneur.

1. Register for the two-day pass for the Small Business Boot Camp (Nov. 16) and Texas Conference for Women (Nov. 17) in Houston. Contest entrants must be registered for the two-day pass.

2. Submit your application by midnight on Oct. 28. Tell us about your business, the most significant obstacle you’ve faced in launching or growing it, and how exactly you’ve overcome hurdles to soar in trying times. We’re not looking at your business type or your revenue; we’re much more focused on the hustle that’s enabled you to thrive.

3. One fearlessly fabulous woman will be chosen by our judges to win a spot on the main stage for two minutes during the Conference keynote luncheon in front of 6,000 women. This is a rare opportunity to wow a huge audience of the most impressive professional women in the state! Must be present on both days to win. The winner will be seated at a VIP table during the Conference main stage programs, featured on the Texas Conference for Women website, on Tory Johnson’s Spark & Hustle website, and on social media promotion through both.

4. Don’t delay! Register now and download an application for full contest details.

This is priceless exposure for you and your small business—the kind that can launch endless opportunities.

We know you’re got the spark—now show us how you hustle!
