After attending the stripper bootcamp, I had a lot of self-reflection. The camp wasn’t just about strip tips or stripper lessons, it was really about making a career out of stripping, however short it might be. It got me thinking about what I want to do with my life, how to do it, and whether or not I want to stay in business. Finally, I decided it was best to get naked while I still looked good and had the energy to do so.
What I was missing a bit was the drive to get in there and use everything I had learned at Stripper Bootcamp.
All strippers get to a point where they have such a hard time getting up and going to the strip club to get naked and dance on the laps of strange men. I personally think it’s understandable. The problem is getting over it.
This is where a personal mission statement can help. It can motivate you to think about the WHY of your career as a stripper. Companies and schools have a mission statement: the why of the company. This is where you wonder “why have I become an exotic dancer?”
So I started thinking about MY personal mission statement. Why did I become a stripper? Yes, of course, I know you’re thinking “Money, duh”, but think beyond the obvious reason. Why do you want that money?
My personal mission statement goes like this:
I undress to make a better life for myself and my family. I go out and use everything I’ve learned to create an experience that the customer will enjoy, so they spend time and money on me, so I can make more money. With this money I will pay off my debt, go on trips and spend time with the people who matter most to me.
Why do you undress? Why do you want to be a stripper? What is YOUR personal mission statement?
