I’m delighted to announce that I have won the ‘Business Exporter of the Year’ title at the prestigious Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) Awards.
I picked up the accolade at the FSB’s Yorkshire & Humber regional awards event at the John Smith’s Stadium in Huddersfield yesterday, and will now be shortlisted with the potential to be put through to the national finals, which will take place in May.
I’m absolutely stunned and over the moon to be recognised in this way, not just for me, but for my hypnotherapy profession.
My driving force is making hypnotherapy mainstream, so that as many people as possible can benefit from its powerful potential to transform lives for the better.
So, endorsements like this one from the FSB are important not just for me, but for all of us who practice.
I won my award for my success in building up my successful global business, which sees me teaching clinical hypnotherapy and business development techniques to thousands of fellow practitioners all over the world.
Having toured to six different countries, and addressed more than 800 conference delegates, during 2017, I’m just about to embark on my 2018 worldwide tour, with places like Switzerland, Florida and Canada on the agenda.
In fact, I’ve been living out of a suitcase ever since my pioneering ‘Virtual Gastric Band’, which helps people lose dramatic amounts of weight by re-booting the way they think, won international recognition six years ago.
Since then, I’ve built up a network of 2,500 clinical hypnotherapists, in nine countries around the world, giving them the know-how and confidence to turn their practices into business successes, using my methods.
I’ve also recently taken this one step further, by franchising my Sheila Granger brand and enabling other, carefully-selected practitioners to deliver therapist business training using my model. I now have 20 franchises in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Belgium and the United States, using my branded courses covering areas of hypnotherapy business development including marketing, business growth and financial management.
My ultimate goal is to have 200 franchises on the programme, giving me the potential to reach every hypnotherapist in the world and teach them the foundations of success.
My personal hypnotherapy manuals cover methods for dealing with everything from smoking cessation to phobia management, sugar addiction and childhood angst.
My mission is to promote real-life hypnotherapy, making the amazing benefits accessible using my tried and tested methods that work on real modern problems in the real world.
If my awards success has inspired you to consider a career in hypnotherapy, or if you think you could benefit from a course of sessions yourself, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
