Can you really become a professional stage hypnotist in 3days?
I often wonder how some people who teach stage hypnosis can make that claim,It took me more than 3 days and a lot of hard work to get where I am now ,and twenty years later I still work hard to keep working, yet more and more so called experts and national organizations are running schools giving courses and selling instruction dvds touting how successful and profitable your life will be with all the extra money you'll be making if you take their course .They boast of traveling the country performing on the Queen Mary or some luxury resort ,doing shows and stop smoking seminars collecting back of the room sales from what? you guessed it more dvds. Lets be honest here ,how many of you out there are really full time fully insured stagehypnotists whos sole income is derived from performing,how many are working 2 to 3 nights a week or more, it ain't easy and as time goes on Hypnosis shows and StageHypnotists are going the way of the comedy industry back in the 80's everybody and his brother jumped on the band wagon and it's like Starbucks, one on every corner .Now everyone is an instructor, yeah you'll always get those extra calls for prom and grad nights but it's seasonal and if they have never seen a real stagehypnotist before it's like someone who 's been eating chopped sirloin they won't know the difference until they try a filet mignon .The trick here is to set yourself apart from all the others,kind of hard to do on the internet because anyone can make themselves look good on a website . What I'm getting at is this it take more than 3 days or week to become a true professional ,you need time and a lot of shows under your belt,any beginner with a little bit of know how can go do a high school, but it take a master to walk into a room or comedy club with less than a sellout crowd and put on a show ,They won't teach you that in hypnosis school!
