There's a lot that comes with being an adult entertainer in Atlanta. Mostly the backlash on one's perspective is what they think an adult entertainer is and what we do. I meet strippers all the time that work in some of the best strip clubs in Atlanta. They are really good at what they do but it's frustrating when I try to explain to them what I do as a mobile stripper. The opportunities it brings set aside from me being present in that atmosphere. A ton of adult entertainers
get comfortable where they are and are closed minded in other upcoming opportunities because it may "seem to be" whatever they picture in their mind other than actually looking into it. Most strippers I've met think adult entertainment just stops at a strip club. That's not the case at all! When I speak with a woman about doing traveling adult entertainment, they almost instantly think someone is trying "pimp" them or get over on them. Not even being interested in doing background work on looking into different options and what it's all about being a traveling adult entertainment stripper. These people have no idea how much more fun and money they will have just by looking into and trying it.
Typically a stripper that works in a Atlanta strip club will come in to start a 10 to 12 hour shift. They pay for parking, tip the Dj, house mom, may buy an outfit or food and tip out to the club anywhere from $20 to $150 or more. That's a large percentage taken away from your overall income working a shift like that. The thing about taking away that kind of pay, it may be sufficient at the time but you really don't see the bigger picture overall for the work you are performing. Being a mobile stripper is something you should do with an established company. There are scams and shady people out there. I can't stress enough to do your homework!!! If you take your time to make sure a company is well established and respected, it's easier to take a chance. Just like a well established Atlanta strip club, people trust they can be treated rite. Typically, any woman that starts working at any strip club is more than likely going to do some kind of research on it or ask around for an opinion from someone that has experience at that strip club. There are strip clubs that are better than others, which may be a final decision in ones choice. Which should be done with most decisions in anyone's lifestyle, doing research on what's consuming your time.
It's interesting having interactions with people that have a similar background and hustle as me but won't open up their mind to even consider a financial opportunity to help better their own situation. That's all it took for me, is for a business associate to approach me and explain a legitimate business opportunity that he was offering and the benefits it involved. Of course, it caught my attention but I did my homework. I found out the company that was spoken of was credited for, well established and recommended by many relevant reviewers. I gave it a chance... I was nervous, with this being my first traveling adult entertainment show but to my surprise it went much better and smoother than expected. I had a "mentor" guiding me through what was to be expected and in our agreed company terms. As far as collecting payments, following safety guidelines, what to say to customers, when to go and stop, making boundaries and ending the party with grace. It's almost like a regular office job that includes training. You are not left alone, starting out with legit companies that lead and support in an accurate way. Most female strippers get intimidated by the concept of working outside of a strip club and being a mobile stripper. When in reality you have a team that backs you up legitimately through safety, law and respect. In my experience, on any mobile entertainment booking I've been hired on, I get a full detail on who is conducting the party, how many people are attending, any requests that have been included, and your own flat fee you collect when you arrive at the party which is anywhere from $130 to $500. The max booking rate per hour could be 30 minutes to 1 hour not including the tips you make at your party overall. The flat fee
is for the entertainers guaranteed booking fee. The only thing that makes a mobile stripper stay past their booking fee time is strictly tips. They are earning past their booking fee plus more.
The more entertainment a stripper has included in their show, the more likely it is for the customers to stay interested. That's where you have space to get creative and start collecting your benefits.
Comparing the flat booking fee plus tips on top of that, a mobile entertainer's overall income compared to a top "reviewed" strip club in Atlanta that an experienced worker has worked a long shift in is non comparable. Going into a strip club nothing is guaranteed, everything is a gamble. With traveling adult entertainment you know exactly what, who, when and where, before you give a final confirmation. Being in the adult entertainment industry with everything it involves it is hard enough. Not being confident as a traveling professional entertainer
and respected as one independently instead of having a company and contacts supporting you is another confirmation.
