WSH402 – If Dave Elman Ran Your Hypnosis Business…

What would happen if you used the same strategies you use to help your clients and applied them to growing your business? For many hypnosis professionals, Dave Elman is why we began exploring the hypnosis world and turned it into a lucrative and rewarding career. Dave is a pioneer of modern hypnosis. He worked as a non-medical hypnotherapist who successfully became the expert to the medical community, bridging the gap and paving the way for thousands – if not millions – of hypnosis professionals like us.

So what can we learn from Dave’s entrepreneurial skills, business acumen, and hypnosis techniques to help us build and grow successful, sustainable hypnosis businesses while creating positive hypnotic change for our clients?

This week, I share my presentation at the Dave Elman Legacy Online Hypnosis Conference. I discuss how the hypnotic language patterns and applications of the Elman hypnosis work directly applies to the strategies you use in your hypnosis sessions and the things you do in your business. I discuss how applying the same techniques and strategies we use for our clients to build our businesses can help us grow a more successful business. I also explain the connection between Dave Elman’s induction progression and selling your clients on the ‘next step’ of their hypnotic change journey. I also discuss how we can help our clients create desire in advance through interactive change work and product pacing.
