Solution Oriented Hypnosis with Bill Ohanlon

Ever since I got my hands on Bill Ohanlon’s A Guide To Trance Land, I fell in love with his work.  Primarily his approach to solution oriented work.  In a nutshell, solution oriented therapies focus on finding solutions, rather than solving problems.

It’s often seen as a radical approach.

Recently I had the chance to interview Bill Ohanlon.  Aside from being a swell guy, he’s also a trailblazer in the hypnosis world.

Have fun digging into this interview.

My healing journey at Hypnothoughts Live with Ken Guzzo

This podcast is an update from my healing journey with Ken Guzzo at Hypnothoughts Live last year.

I was lucky enough to be chosen as a demo subject for his 4 hour talk. This was a demo of something known as Prime Potential. Before we dive too deep into this podcast…let me just say that I’m about as skeptical as they come.

Ken Guzzo didn’t let me down.

Without going into the gory details, he helped me to unshed a lot of emotional baggage I’ve been holding onto over the years. There was one specific memory that seemed to be dragging me down quite a bit. In the matter of about two hours we were able to bring myself into an emotional state where I was literally buzzing with freedom.

The only way to describe it was a feeling of freedom and stepping into my true authentic self.

Listen to the interview below to discover what happened to me since this demo at Hypnothoughts Live 2016.

What’s Ken Guzzo up to at Hypnothoughts Live 2017?

He’s finally lifting the curtain on his ground-breaking “Guzzo Protocol” that is the backbone that allows him to charge $595 per smoking cessation session.  He’s also running a workshop with Martin Peterson called Hypnotic Excellence.

Hypnotic Language Mastery Review with Keith Livingston

How would you like to tap into the raw power of hypnotic language patterns?

We’re not sure how being able weave hypnotic language patterns into your conversations sounds…but to the rest of us, it sounds like a no brainer.

Keith Livingston and I recorded a podcast about Hypnotic Language Patterns.  Enjoy!

Want to check this Hypnotic Language Patterns interview on youtube?

I reached out to Keith Livingston to review his Hypnotic Language Mastery program.  It teaches the nuts and bolts of Hypnotic language patterns:

  • The milton model patterns
  • metaphor creation from stem to stearn
  • and the elusive slight of mouth patterns

Buckle your seat up because we’ve got a story for you. Its a familiar story and it usually goes like this:

You’ve been reading about hypnotic language patterns. You’ve also thought how you’d use them in your everyday life. And perhaps you’ve imagined these patterns flowing smoothly like honey from your mouth.

That is until its game time. Right when you’re going to wow someone with your hypnotic language skills (hopefully without them knowing) you start to choke up a bit.

It begins with a feeling of sheer terror exploding in your chest. You freeze in your tracks like a deer caught in the headlights.

And soon you’re drowning in a sea of negative thoughts that are hammering away at you:

“Am I going to sound like an idiot?”
“What if they catch me?!?”

But you push on with the hope it’ll work itself out…but it doesn’t…and you fall flat on your face.

Listen up.  We’ve all been there.  In a moment you’re going to hear how I used some of these patterns at a sales job I used to have.

But first things first…lets

I was at a job where I signed people up for timeshare sales presentations.

Its hard as hell to convince people to sit through a 2 hour high pressure presentation.

Once people here the word timeshare their defenses shoot up like a missile.

I couldn’t manage to get anyone signed up for a timeshare presentation.  Rent was coming up and I was at the end of my rope.

So I tried this “secret weapon” used by politicians.  It goes like this – “The issue isn’t X, its Y which means Z”

“I don’t have enough time to do a 2 hour timeshare presentation while I’m on vacation.”

“Perhaps the issue isn’t that you don’t have enough time, maybe its that you haven’t found a vacation company that values your time as an individual, which means you can look forward to how you’ll be treated during your presentation.”

They agreed and booked the presentation on the spot. BOOM!

I was speechless

The redefine pattern is only a small piece of the puzzle you’re about to get your hands on.  Let’s continue:

  • The single easiest way to change a persons imagery…and map of the world…without coming across cold as ice and rude – pg 14
  • The 6 often overlooked ways to boost the raw but ready slight of mouth patterns – pg 11
  • CAUTION: Don’t fall into the trap of taking what a client says at face value. And discover the secret question to uncover the true limiting belief – audio lesson 4
  • The 2 unique ways to gently uproot a limiting belief…and toss it to the wind. (You’re going to be blown away at how simple these are.) – pg 13
  •  PLUS! The single easiest way to change a persons imagery…and map of the world…without coming across cold as ice and rude – audio lesson 6

Well, there you have it.

What Makes Copywriter Chris Haddad Thinks Mel Gibson Is A “Good Guy”?

Yep – Chris said Mel Gibson (the alcoholic Jew Hatin’ racist) was a good guy. Any idea why he would say that?

Listen to the podcast below…

By the time you finish listening to this podcast, 1 of 2 things will happen:

You will either love Chris Haddad, or you will hate him.

Don’t shoot me, I’m just the messenger.

Not sure who Chris “Mr. Money Finger’s” Haddad is?

He’s a direct response copywriter.  “Um, what?” I can hear stirring up in your head.

Simply put, he writes marketing material.  He is a man of many words. (some of them 4 letter words)

First things first Listen to this podcast

lorrie morgan ferrero on red hot copy

It took me a while to secure an interview with Lorrie Morgan Ferrero.

She’s not a Hypnotist – yet her words are Hypnotic.

Let me explain – Lorrie produces red hot copy – aka persuasive writing that convinces people to do things.

More than likely it is to buy stuff.

She’s got a unique style.  Not hype-y (that even a word?) and masculine fueled sales copy that screams:


Its actually the complete opposite.  Its heavy on the emotional storytelling.

On the podcast Lorrie Morgan Ferrero reveals:


* The direct marketing LEGEND you should not eat with (never). Has nothing to do with his manners.

* How losing out on a copywriting job turned her into a A-Lister copywriter.

* A tragic event in 1999 that changed her life (and thousands of others Americans) forever

* The exact reason she’s a (horrible) actress. This makes her even better at writing copy.

* What sets her apart from her male counterparts that allow her writing to attract a wider audience.

* Why Lorries clients are stunned by the results she gets for them – its because of a “special” type of lizard.

* Discover why she said “Yeah, you’re going to piss some people off” (And why neither of us care)

* Get more women with Pick Up Artist tricks? WRONG! Do this instead (it also improves your copywriting – win win)

* A little-known trick she uses to “get in the mood” to write killer copy

* And much much mo’ (Yeah I know. Its cliche. Let me try one more bulletin’)

* But wait – theres more! click the video below


Want to check this Lorrie Morgan Ferrero interview on youtube?


She’s got a free resource called

The 30 Day Storytelling Playground on Facebook.

Make sure to join.  Its a blast and a half!

Every day, for 30 days she posts a (totally random) picture in the group.  Then you write a 100 to 200 word story in like 15 minutes.  It gets really creative..and fast!

When the rubber meets the road – actual hands on practice makes you ready for the real world.  This storytelling game will do just this – without you having to lift more than a few fingers – to type that is.

P.S.  Just in case you couldn’t tell – her brand Red Hot Copy – its a play on words – and on her having red hair (red heads are amazing….amirite???)
