Strippers are Awesome

A long time back I worked with this amazing super stripper. She was that girl, the one who was always in the lap dance room all night long. If you asked her how she’d give you a bunch of great sales and marketing advice, but if you watched her you could see that it was her aura, her enthusiasm and urgency, as much as any perfectly phrased closing pitches.

I just found out that she has totally retired from stripping and re-incarnated herself by… (can you guess?) …starting a marketing group!

She’s not just any kind of marketer, though. She’s not selling any stupid stuff. Her projects are all really cool stuff that she’s genuinely excited about, and that I genuinely want! My favorite one is The Jam Poster. It’s an entirely stippled (which, for those of you who didn’t go through aspiring artist phases, means made with little dots) hand drawn tribute to the legends of rock who shaped our current rock-n-roll world.

The great thing is that if you look at it people are grouped and woven together by influence. Every single little detail is entirely significant. I can spend hours staring at it.

  1. In the long run most people are better off having a business that they enjoy. Employment may seem safe, but you only make money while actually working and that is somewhat limiting. Once a business gets going, it can often generate income 24/7/365. Eventually if you choose you can sell it and perhaps retire off the proceeds.

  2. I agree working at something you love is more absorbing than the usual 9-5. If anything you end up working more hours but you don’t mind.

    The key is talking about your work because you like it and not talking about your work because you are trying to sell something. Customers pick up on the genuine and will tell each other – sounds to me like your friend will do just fine.

    Never under estimate passion.

  3. Well good for your co-worker.

    It’s interesting when sex workers leave their our profession to do something really different, the biggest difference, IMO being Sharon Mitchell of AIM, who became a doctor.

    Great blog.
