August 2015 Featured Business Owner:
Sarah Lantimo, Owner of Powerful Hypnosis Healing
(By Robert Swartz, AHDMA)
 
 
Sarah Lantimo opened her practice in Union City in the Fall of 2014. She chose the Alvarado District because she enjoyed the ambiance of the area, which had several holistic/health businesses close by. The friendly, calm, less than frantic pace of the streets fit perfectly with what she was planning to provide to her clients: relief from stress, anxiety and a host of other ailments, by helping her clients achieve control of their own subconscious mind through the power of hypnosis.
 
She has learned many lessons this past year, both on a business and personal level. While the Alvarado area is low-key in many respects, Sarah found people more conservative (less-receptive) to the concept of hypnosis as a solution to their personal problems than she had first anticipated.  However, her clients have been steadily leaving her rave reviews regarding their results from working with her, and Sarah is embracing social media and the internet in general as a tool to help spread the awareness of how hypnosis can transform lives.
 
In addition to personal sessions with clients, Sarah is developing seminar/coaching sessions in order for her to work with groups of people as well. She will soon be self-publishing informative eBooks, tackling important topics of concern that she encountered in her practice and her recommended treatment advice, which will all be available on her website.  “It has been a bit overwhelming to sort through all the marketing possibilities and channels that I could focus on, and certainly it’s hard to balance all the things you have to do as an owner while being an effective provider to my clients at the same time,” Sarah explains.
 
Clients are offered ‘packages’ that usually involve up to six sessions in a two-month period.  With an impressive 35% client retention/return rate after a completed package, Sarah is already finding that her schedule is filling up, and her time to work on expanding her business is becoming ever more important to manage. “I want to provide my help to a larger group of clients, and I believe through seminars, eBooks and other types of group activities I should be able to accomplish that.” Sarah continues.
 
Sarah is on the AHDMA Art & Wine Festival organizing committee, but admits she can only attend some of the AHDMA meetings due to those very real time constraints. “I enjoy working with other local business owners, and I am learning many things from their various experiences and advice,” she stated.
 
Sarah is currently the only certified clinical hypnotherapist in Union City.  She may have started her business without a vision for financial goals, a working budget, or any training in marketing, but she is reaching out and finding sources like the Landmark Forum, where she can network and receive training on a wide variety of quality of life issues.

(The AHDMA has been operating for 14 months now, and has expanded to 32 members.)
