Your job getting you down? Want to chuck it all and be your own boss?
It’s a great career.
First, you would have very little competition, no matter where you hung out your shingle.
Second, you wouldn’t have to pay for ads because word would get out that you were practicing phrenology and the media would be on your doorstep in no time.
Finally, there’s no classes, degrees or certification exams required. Anyone can practice phrenology!
Frankly, I fail to see a down side to this idea.
I mean, look. There's a psychic who has a shop on Broadway in Sacramento. Been there for years. Has neon signs in the window. That sort of thing. One time, this journalism student wrote up how uninspiring her visit to the Broadway psychic was, how she didn't learn anything, how it was all fake, blah, blah, blah. The article got published in our alternate paper. Do you think that psychic lost one bit of business? Of course she didn't. Because her clients don't read that paper. And if they did, they probably wouldn't care. See? She has perfect job security.
I'll grant you that the name 'phrenology' has a certain Victorian-era taint to it. If I went into that line of work I'd have to modify the name. Give it a 21st century edge - or at least a 20th century one. Like 'Cerebral Mapquesting'. Mwheh-heh.
