Five yrs ago. I had what most people would consider a good life. But then everything change. I became a single mum, after my partner cheated when I was 6 mths pregnant. I kicked him out. Iv never seen him since. Iv never asked him for a thing. He’s never seen his son (his choice) This meant there was only one focus in my life. My son.
I tried a few things from home. I had an online shop first. It didn’t work out. I just wanted to fit work around school and my sons needs.
Then I got my first sex line job after a friend recommended it. She had done it before and said it was easy if you’re open minded enough. I’d known they exist. But I’d never considered it before. I wasn’t shy or unaware of what it might be like though. But I was unprepared for the variety and need for me to be completely flexible.
I had to do an interview which was very odd, I felt so nervous. But the line I worked for took me on anyway. If I’m honest I had to do a bit of research. I also spent time on calls just asking questions. I figured the more I knew the easier my new job would be.
I looked at how some other girls promoted themselves. The pics that used etc. I decided I’d be different. I didn’t post overly sexual pics, or fake ones. I didn’t “get straight into it” when I answered calls. I figured that if I found out about people my calls would be longer if callers thought I was interested in them. I remember being very nervous in the beginning. Now it’s like second nature. I just switch into my fake character.
I didn’t earn much, but it was fine as I got the life balance I wanted so much. Line workers are like sub contractors, self employed. But that suited my life at the time. Weirdly it was the best thing that’s ever happened to me. I actually liked it.
I had to learn a lot about how to deals with calls. Difficult callers. Learn how to read the situation Etc.
After a few months I started to think about how much the line was earning off me being good at what I do. Which kinda pissed me off. So I decided I’d do it for myself and take my loyal customers with me.
I started working for me. It went well. I enjoyed it. Although then I had a different problem. I found I was totally reliant on those callers. Where would I get new ones if they didn’t call?
I felt like I needed to advertise, look at what I do as a business. With that in mind I recently started thinking about having people working for me. If I was going to advertise why not make the most of it. I’d get people working for me. Which is where I am now.
Iv really thought about it. Done my research. Looked at the tech, advertising and costs involved. Looked at what I’d need to pay people (more than other lines. Which I don’t mind for good staff) training, regulation. It’s more complicated than I thought but I will get there.
So Iv gone from losing myself for a while, to chat worker to business woman! All because I’m good at talking dirty on the phone. I never thought I’d say that five years ago hehe
