Hypnotism is a profession that has existed for over a century, though it has never achieved significant size or mainstream status. The hypnosis profession has grown over time, and today there are many professionals worldwide who offer services to people who need them. The majority of hypnotists offer consulting services for issues of personal development, wellness, and health, but there are also hypnotists who entertain with hypnosis. There is a disturbing trend happening within the industry, and it's something that concerns me greatly. Hypnotism is cannibalizing itself, and it's time to talk about it.
Stage hypnotists make up a pretty small community. While there are thousands of people who have received training in stage hypnotism, there are only a few hundred that are actively performing as stage hypnotists worldwide. Those numbers could decrease significantly in the next five to ten years if stage hypnotists fail to address a critical issue within the profession: the declining availability of liability insurance.
The pandemic drove some stage hypnotists out of the industry. After two years of disruption to the live entertainment industry, experts are beginning to discuss the possible end of the pandemic, but that won't necessarily mean a return to normal for entertainers. Instead, it may signal an evolutionary leaping point in how entertainment is distributed, consumed, and experienced. Are stage hypnotists ready?

If you're a new stage hypnotist, there's still a lot to learn if you're going to make it in the profession. I often tell my students, "Hypnotizing people is easy. It's all the other stuff that's challenging." It took me years to learn what I'm going to share with you in this article, and if you embrace this advice and take action on it sooner rather than later, I truly believe it will be worth at least ten thousand in revenue.

I had a friend call me this morning who's a consulting hypnotist. She doesn't do stage shows. She said, "I just thought of you. I wanted to call and say hi. I just drove past a place that had a sign out front, and the sign said, 'Stage hypnosis tonight. Tickets $5.' What price should a stage hypnotist charge? Because I'm pretty sure that's not it."
