Making Money Online Helped Me Quit My Job As A Male Stripper

Updated on August 13, 2012

Make Money Online And Stripping

Ok so the title of this hub may have you scratching your head and you may be curious about what this hub is about. Well as the title suggests it is about making money online and my FORMER stripping job.

This hub is going to tell you a little about myself, how I ended up stripping and why I started to try to make money online and other information that may motivate you to keep trying to making money online or make more money online.

Becoming A Male Stripper

First of all I won't give you my life story because that is not what this hub is about. So I will fast forward to being 19 years old and living on my own. I had rent to pay, food to buy and the day job was not cutting it. I was making good money and not living beyond my means at all. However I had the basic responsibilities that everybody else in the world has, such as paying rent and what not. I also had other major obligations and the job I had was not cutting it at all anymore. I tried finding another part-time job and nothing was happening.

To make matters worse I ended up being out of a job just a few weeks after trying to find a part-time job! This meant I went from earning good money to earning no money and not being able to take care of my responsibilities.

Long story short an acquaintance I worked out with, from time to time, at the gym blatantly asked me if I wanted to become a male stripper. This is what he was doing for work at the time. I said no and I went back home and thought long and hard about it and decided there were worse things in life I could be doing, so I decided that I would do it.

Male Stripping Career

I was only going to dance for a few weeks until I found another decent job. Basically I danced between the ages of 19-24 or 25. I worked at many different places all over the east coast of America. The first year it was fine and I eventually found another job but it didn't pay me well enough to support myself.

Long story short I fell into deep depression because I just could never get back on my feet and I was stripping full-time, basically 3-5 nights a week, 1-3 hour drives one way, feeling like I was degrading myself. From 20-24 or 25 years old I took a mental beating and my self confidence went down a lot. I can't really explain why I felt this way but feeling like I was not good enough was a very bad feeling. Feeling like all I was worth was being looked at as an object and being degraded and being judged every single time I went out to entertain people who really did not care about me. There was even a point when I didn't do anything for 2 weeks straight, all I did was force myself to eat and go straight to bed. A person close to me even noticed this and she felt very bad because I was not the same person I was before I started to work as a male stripper.

I won't go into any further details or try to give a sob story or say other things about stripping because I could write a 2,000+ word hub about it.

Anyway, I will say this though, I have always dabbled in trying to make money online since I was about 21-22 years old but never got serious about it until I was 24-25 years old.

Making Money Online

As mentioned above I was trying to make money online for awhile and just never could get the gist of it.

That was until I turned 24 or 25 and I fell into an even deeper depression and said enough was enough. I actually walked out of the bar I was working at, cried the entire drive home, got home and went straight to bed. When I woke up with a clear head I jumped right onto my computer and told myself it was time to start making money online. I was sick of people not hiring me for jobs I felt qualified for, even fast food jobs didn't want me! I decided that I had no choice but to make money online. It was a very scary feeling!

How I started Making Money Online

I remember joining survey sites and other sites where I got paid to complete surveys and other offers. I started to earn a little bit of money but nothing ever really solid. However I started to play around with different methods and started to see my earnings go up little by little.

I then dabbled in freelance writing and started to earn even more money, between that and doing the offers I started to generate some decent income.

Then all of a sudden I started a few blogs up and started to earn even more money!

and then I dabbled in social networking related businesses and earned even more money!!!

and then I started to do more and more and more things........

and now here I am making a full-time living online. I won't say how much I am currently making but I will say this, I am making more money now than I was working a very good job and stripping combined! It is a very amazing feeling to have this happened to me and I am very thankful for these past few years.

If I Can Do It So Can You

Guys and Girls, if I can earn money online and make a living (haha honestly, I cannot still believe it!) then you can do it too! My advice to you is to not give up, keep trying, keep writing, keep selling, keep creating, keep making, keep doing everything it is you are doing to make that money online! It is possible, it is doable and if I can do it, so can you!

Good luck and hope you start making the kind of money you want to make and never let anybody tell you that you cannot do it.

      Hi Scoop, I was in a similar position myself and I got into MLM. The secret is to get in early and not with the crowd. One such opportunity is happening this week. Just take a look...
