Hi, I'm Zachary Mortensen. I have just been certified in hypnosis through the National Guild of Hypnotists (YAY!) and now I'm ready to open my office! One small problem, I need some startup funding. I have invested in my education, paying for it out of pocket. Now I need a little more to get the doors open.


I'll be opening under the name Northern Illinois Hypnosis in Gurnee, IL. The goal open date is January 1, 2015 and I'll be offering sessions to stop smoking, lose weight, reduce or eliminate chronic pain, eliminate fears and reduce stress. Hypnosis is a medically approved process by all major health organizations.

I have spent the last year studying business, finances, hypnosis and marketing. I have some experience opening my first business operating as a professional circus performer. Now I'm refocusing on something I'm even more passionate about.

The funds will go toward rent (the office I have my eye on is in Saratoga Square in Gurnee, on the corner of Route 21 and Washington, kitty-corner to Six Flags Great America. The rent is $450/month, and I have 2 other hypnotists interested in renting my office hourly on an as-needed basis, to help pay rent while business picks up. I would also use the funds for a phone line, furniture (chairs), and other necessities.

My website is not finished, but I have the working draft made public so you can see how much energy I'm investing into this project. NOTE: The headshot is a place-holder, The logo is a place holder, and there may be stock photos/articles and broken links as this is only a draft. The only reason the website is live is so that YOU can see it! Check it out: http://www.northernillinoishypnosis.com

I will be speaking at different civic clubs and organizations on hypnosis to generate traffic as well as giving demonstrations and advertising. I'll also be creating youtube videos to generate interest and educate the public on hypnosis. You can see some rough draft videos here: http://www.youtube.com/NILHypnosis. Please note that these videos are drafts, not final copies.

I currently have a graphic designer developing a logo for my brand, and will begin developing business cards as soon as the website is ready.


So what do I need from you? A donation. I need your help to get my office open, and I don't need much. If you're short on cash, even $10 would be hugely appreciated.

Thank you all so much for helping me reach my goals and to live my passion!
