Wellness Company for Sale !!
Health and Wellness Seminars, LLC was founded by me in late 2012. I hired my brother, who is one of the leading hypnotherapists in the country. He had been working for a wellness company doing seminars for 15 years, helping people either lose weight or quit smoking. The owner of that business was 75 years old at the time, and told all of his therapists he would be slowing their schedules down, looking to retire by the end of 2012. I decided to come out of retirement to start a similar business, hence, my company was started.
The company he worked for advertised on the radio and in local newspapers for local seminars for weight loss or smoking cessation. They then booked hotel meeting rooms, charged for the seminars and sold supplements to help with their programs.
My choice was to run the company with a completely different format. Firstly, I knew very well how well the programs worked and felt the supplements were overkill. Instead, I rented out a recording studio and created hypnosis CD's that were an exact replication of the hypnosis portion of the seminars. Secondly, I really did not want to run the company by doing these seminars all over the country. Instead, my thought was to work with large businesses, who are now MANDATED and even FUNDED by the government to have Wellness programs for their employees. With the New Year coming, my brother felt it would be wise to start the company by doing seminars, see how it goes, and then potentially switch to my idea. January through April is always the best time for this type of business, particularly with post holiday New Year's resolutions.
We recorded and manufactured 15,000 CD's. I set up the advertising and booked hotels for seminars in early 2013. My general lack of experience with these types of ads made it difficult to fill many of the seats early in the year, therefore the company was losing money. By the middle of the year, I was refocused on running the business the way I had originally intended to. By October 2013, everything was ready to go. I was in negotiations on contracts with a few companies when, on November 22nd, my brother suffered a heart attack.
This business is a great opportunity! If it was 20 years ago, I probably would not have said that, after all, hypnosis certainly is not a traditional method of treating either weight loss or the need to quit smoking. Today's companies and people, in general, are much more open to non-traditional, holistic, means of treating many different afflictions.
If you do nothing else but sell the nearly 10,000 remaining CD's I have in a warehouse, the business is worth over 5 times what I'm selling it for. This business, however, can be much, much more than that.
I came out of retirement to help my brother out. Time to go back into retirement.
If you want to take a look at the CD's you can find them at an online store I set up. The site is http://www.health-and-wellness-seminars-llc.myshopify.com
