These days, you can learn stage hypnosis almost anywhere. There are dozens of stage hypnosis courses (some of them quite good) that cost around $2,000.00. If you apply what you learn there, you can typically get bookings in the $500.00 - $1,500.00 fee range in the entertainment market. There are also courses that will teach you street hypnosis. They typically charge in the $1,000.00 range. Most street hypnotists get paid very little or not at all. And there a number of very good training courses that teach you hypnotherapy and how to start and maintain a hypnosis practice. The complete training can often run into many thousands and is worth it because you learn a business that you can grow and earn a living from it.
If you want to break into the corporate market, you have to have a presentation that corporate audiences – not to mention meeting planners – will notice and respond to. But simply rebranding your existing hypnosis show isn't enough. Successful speakers also use inside knowledge and experience.
