This Site Will Make You More Profitable in Your Hypnosis Business and More Effective with Your Skills!

It’s time we all begin to rethink how we talk about and how we do hypnosis. And by doing so, you’ll find an even greater opportunity to grow your business.

Even if you’ve been in hypnosis for years, times have changed, and it’s time we make updates and evolve – or get left behind.

We need to be more effective with our skills, whether in private sessions or on stage. It’s time we also think about increasing our reach to a bigger audience.

This site is the hub of my hypnosis podcast, blog, and a melting pot of resources to help you to take action, grow your skills, and run a hypnosis business in the 21st century.

There are dozens of scripts, resources, downloads, and interviews with some of the top names in hypnosis. There’s a ton of great content ready for you to take action.

Let’s do this.

My Story

“Just because you’re good at something doesn’t mean you have to do it the rest of your life.”

Image-of-Me

These words have changed my life several times over. Call it was a drive, a passion, or just perhaps a quest for new discoveries. In the NLP model, we often talk of being options oriented or procedure oriented.

I’m driven by options.

We’re a profession of people who are too often repeating the advice shared by our instructors. It’s time to exercise a new way of thinking to bring our effectiveness to new levels.

 

Magic.

I really sucked at playing soccer. There’s no softening this, I was bad. My goal was just to kick the ball, forget getting a goal. It is called a goal, right?

I became ravenous for the study of magic, perfecting incredible sleight-of-hand and misdirection, though something was missing.

If I could really do magic, why would I carry around a pack of cards? If I could really read your mind, why bother writing it down? I was on a quest for purity.

 

Theater.

 My professional career out of college led me to working in the professional arts. I was on staff at major theaters as a card-carrying member of Actors’ Equity Association.

I was the wizard-behind-the-curtain coordinating life-threatening scene changes and calling cues for the magic to happen on stage.

My task as Production Stage Manager was to make all the creative people get along. If that’s not psychological training, I don’t know what is…

Hypnosis.

Remember the issue with magic… If I could really do this stuff, why would I carry props?

This is where hypnosis finally appeared in my life. A stage hypnotist on tour appeared at my college, and I was hooked. I became ravenous for any books and videos I could get my hands on, whether private change work or stage hypnosis training.

This stuff is real. The magic is really happening, and people change quickly.

I’m a Board Certified Hypnotist and Award-Winning Instructor of Hypnosis and NLP. I’m certified through several major organizations, and now travel the world speaking at major hypnosis conventions.

Business.

“Just because you’re good at something doesn’t mean you have to do it the rest of your life.”

The theater job was wearing thin, so I orchestrated a five-year-business-plan to transition away from the safety-net of full-time employment.

Within six months I quit my job, and I haven’t looked back.

I soon opened Virginia Hypnosis, a busy hypnosis practice in Alexandria, Virginia, often filling my schedule several weeks in advance. The office operates as a full-time hypnosis center, hosting several certifications a year plus professional guest trainings.

In addition to touring the country doing stage hypnosis programs and working with thousands of private clients, I discovered a knack for running a successful business. The local hypnosis community served as my initial inspiration to make the jump to full-time self-employment, though it soon become clear that my results with clients and success in private practice was far outreaching theirs – even in my first year.

It’s not just what we do to grow our business, it’s also about the HOW and the WHY. When the right motivation and mindset is in place, our businesses can run itself.

I soon was called upon to not only share and train hypnosis, but also educate a suffering profession on how to make a living at it.

Family.

It’s too easy to pour ourselves into our careers, though having the work-life-family balance is my primary goal.

My wife, Michelle, and I have been together since 2003, married in 2008, and our family grew with the birth of our daughter, Claire, and son, Max.

I structure my schedule in such a way to be home several days of the week, be around the dinner table each night, and help tuck them into bed every night.

It’s not about finding the time, it’s about making the time.
