Tonya Eberhart is a speaker, author, and Branding Agent to Business Stars. She grew up in Dawsonville, a small North Georgia town best known for making moonshine and fueling the racing industry.
After she graduated from high school, her wild ambitions landed her a theatre scholarship at a local community college, followed by a move to Tallahassee, Florida to attend the renowned theatre program at Florida State University. But she was soon to discover that she was out of place in the quirky, eccentric world of theatre, so she used her acting skills for a more suitable purpose—vacuum cleaner sales.
While selling vacuums door to door to pay for her education, she happened upon the home of a radio station engineer who recommended her for a sales position, which began an eighteen-year journey in radio.
During this time, Tonya observed business owners who were featured in their own advertising and positioned as local celebrities in the market. She was intrigued by this, and determined to help others achieve that same success. She hand-picked clients whom she felt she could turn into the next radio star, and dragged them into the studio to record their commercials.
Several years and many successful brands later, she founded BrandFace®, a personal branding firm comprised of a book series, training series and speaking series that is designed to help serious professionals differentiate themselves. She has authored four books on the subject of personal branding, but focuses primarily on the real estate industry.
BrandFace® (the original book written for business owners)
BrandFace® for Real Estate Professionals (with co-author, Michael Carr)
BrandFace® for Home Improvement Professionals (with co-author, Ron Greenbaum)
BrandFace® for Entrepreneurs (with co-author, Michael Carr)
