What Makes Stripping So Fun?
Being a stripper in Atlanta is one of those jobs where you really have to know what you're doing to be successful, but it also comes with a bunch of perks and is a blast once you get the hang of it! Imagine having complete control of your working schedule, making large amounts of money for only a few hours of 'work', and being the star of every show and always being in the spotlight! Exotic dancing has always gotten a bad rap and been very hush hush, but that's all based on perspective. Many men and women love working in the adult industry and actually prefer it over any other career. It's a little cliche, but you really don't know what it's like until you try it for yourself.
How To Be Successful As An Exotic Dancer
First and foremost, you have to know the audience you're preforming for and the setting that you're dancing in. It's very similar to the military (which I was in for two years.) When I got out of the Army I was a little lost in what I wanted to do with my life until I learned about the the adult entertainment company in Atlanta that I am currently with. I'm so glad I live in Atlanta, that I found this company, and most importantly, that I found an amazing job that I love. You meet so many new people in adult industry and you also learn so much from them! I have gained more confidence in the past year than I have in the 25 years of my life before dancing. This industry can truly boost your self worth if you play your cards right.
The Difference It Has Made In My Life
My previous job was working at a Chick-fil-a... Though I did enjoy working there and built some character along the way, the pay was garbage to say the least. The funniest thing to me, is that I learned far more about customer service as a stripper than any actual customer service labeled position I've ever held. You just can't beat being your own boss and getting to make your own schedule every single day. At most jobs in today's society, no matter how much effort you put in, you still make the same hourly wage.
I was also a lifeguard for 6 years and loved that job as well. I learned a lot about time management and safety. Being a private party stripper is actually similar in those aspects. You have to dress the right way and know the rules. Being proactive is key and you need to know your way around the job. You want to make as much money in as little time as possible, but you also want customers to come back and book you from the company again. The amount of money you make is solely dependent on how much effort you put into it. However, this can also be a downfall because if you don't do your job right your income suffers.
From all of the jobs that I have worked in this one is the one that taught me the most. If you are struggling and want a side job, you should really consider being a male or female stripper. You will learn a lot about yourself and learn from those around you. If you are a customer, that's good too, you could really entertain yourself with listening to dancers' stories. I love my job, and I'm glad that I do what I do!
