Today we’d like to introduce you to Victoria Gallagher.
Victoria, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Prior to becoming a hypnotist, I was a stockbroker and earning a good living. I was going through some turmoil and starting taking some personal growth seminars. During the seminars we would do a lot of “closed-eye” techniques, which were so profound and life-changing. It made me realize everyone needed to try this. I tried getting my friends and family to come to these long weekend seminars, which were priced at around $500 and it was difficult to get people interested in paying that kind of money and taking 4 days out of their lives to do it. So, I got the idea that I would create my own line of “meditations” like the ones I was inspired by.
I started off just making a few recordings at a recording studio, my boyfriend at the time owned. They came out so good and everyone I shared them with really loved them. So, I ventured off to find a way to make sure that the scripts I was writing for these recordings would be effective. I stumbled upon a hypnosis school online, which was right in my local area, in Las Vegas at the time. The class started in 2 weeks and I signed up.
Within a couple months, I was fully certified and decided to open an office and see clients. I was asked by my boss to make a decision as I could not do both my new business and be a stockbroker. It was viewed as a conflict of interest.
Even though I was not making any money yet, I knew that I would be successful because I really loved what I was doing and I knew this would be a turning point for me. The first couple years were very challenging and there were a couple times I came close to giving up.
But, here I am today, 18 years later. I’m considered the best of the best in my industry. I have over 500 hypnosis recordings I sell on my popular website. I’m now in the process of creating my own seminar company, which teaches people how to apply The Law of Attraction, using hypnosis and meditation.
Has it been a smooth road?
It was not a smooth road at all.
I was given an ultimatum by my boss at the time, about a few months after I decided to take the plunge and sign a lease on an office, take out ads in the yellow pages, and many other investments I had made.
I made the decision to give up a six-figure income. Only, shortly after that I wound up in the hospital, uninsured, with a collapsed lung and $30,000 in debt. My ex-husband filed for bankruptcy, leaving me with another $25,000 in debt. I was not profitable in my business for the first 18 months, and even when I became profitable, I still had over $6000 a month in overhead. People all around me including my own family continued to suggest I go back to work. I knew if I did that, I would never break through.
But, one day, I did finally hit my rock bottom moment and the answers became crystal clear to me about how to get beyond this. I took the actions in my business that came from my intuition and little by little things started to get better and better.
There have been many ups and downs and moments when I doubted if I would ever be successful. However, my success continues to be validated daily by the amazing reviews and testimonials I always get from my customers. And now I am looked up to as a point of inspiration by many of my peers.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
My core business is hypnosis recordings. To date, I currently have around 500 hypnosis recordings that you can download from my website.
Additionally, I created an online course called Personal Growth Club, which is a step by step transformational process that takes place of 60 Weekly Video Training modules, which each come with an instructional video, workbook, and meditation. I’m also doing some live workshops around the local area teaching people how to apply Law of Attraction to stop attracting negative and start creating more positive results.
I have found that people who are most drawn to my product and services are men and women who are in sales, such as realtors or network marketing as well as those who are self-employed, or want to become an entrepreneur to achieve business success using Law of Attraction, Hypnosis, and Meditation.
What sets me apart is my vast knowledge experience with personal growth, my voice, and my ability to easily tap into what they perceive as a problem and inspire them toward their greatness that resides inside of them.
Is our city a good place to do what you do?
Yes, definitely. However, since so much of what I do is online, I can do this business from anywhere. But, Phoenix is a place with such a diverse group of people. It has a large population and the cost of living and starting a business if very low. So, if you can make it anywhere else, you can certainly make it in Phoenix. My suggestion to anyone starting a business would be to join some groups, perhaps Rotary or Chamber, and some meet up groups and get to know the people in the local area that you can network with and spread the word about your business.
