Kerrilee joins me today to share her story of moving from a career as a certified occupational therapist to working with clients through the power of hypnotic energy. She explains how her hypnosis business became successful and the strategies she uses for her weight reduction therapy sessions. She also explains how word of mouth marketing has impacted her business as well as why the initial client contact and treatment should start with the client.
