So, for however long now, you’ve made a career out of taking off our clothing, twirling around a pole, webcamming, escorting, working in porn or any combination of the above…and you’ve decided to make a change.
Changing careers is an exciting step! However, transitioning out of a career in adult entertainment can be tricky and in order to do it successfully and not completely disrupt your financial, mental or physical health, you’ve got some work to do in planning your future. Consider the following:
You’re paid in cash. Nightly. Probably a lot of it. Most likely you’ve been working part time hours and taking time off whenever you see fit. Speaking of fit, especially you dancers, your impressive physique has benefitted from hours and hours of cardio and strength training on the job and now you can bounce a quarter off of any part of it.
There will be some exceptions, but it’s likely your next endeavor is not going to allow for this same lifestyle and you are going to have to plan for this transition. A plan for truly breaking free from “the life” includes a realistic budget and strategy for savings. Also, it may not seem a priority, but adjusting to a new sleep/work schedule, keeping your energy up and staying healthy are important plays in this particular game.
Unfortunately, for some in the industry, what may have started as fun, an attempt to detach or to keep energy levels up has now become an issue of substance abuse or addiction. These clients will have access to one-on-one counseling with a certified rehabilitation counselor.
While your career is fairly unique if you look at what most people end up doing for work, it’s likely that you do have something in common with much of the population. That is that you have NO FREAKING CLUE as to what you should do next. Welcome to the club. Should you go to school? Write that screenplay? How about working for some big firm and climbing your way up? Or do you follow the dream of owning your own goldfish hypnotherapy clinic/ tofu bar?
We will determine how to use your sex work experience to your advantage on your resume and in your interviews. Let’s see where your strengths lie in terms of skill set, aptitude, personality and background. You can even start by taking a quiz to find out your personality type. We’ll lay out the reasons why the hypnotherapy thing is a bad, bad idea…and determine how you actually should try to make your fortune. Or fulfill your passion. Or do both.
