After going to SuperStripper Bootcamp, I had a lot of self-reflection going on. I was thinking about what I want to do with my life, how to go about it, and whether or not I wanted to stay in the business. I ultimately decided it is better to strip while I was still looking good and had the energy to do so.
After I returned home from the week long Bootcamp, I discovered I was lacking the drive to get back into my club and actually use all that I had learned at SuperStripper Bootcamp.
All strippers reach a point when they just have such a hard time getting up and going into the strip club to get naked and dance on strange men’s laps. I personally believe it is understandable. The problem is getting over it.
This is where the personal mission statement I crafted at Bootcamp came into play. Any legitimate businesses or school has a mission statement that states the reason why they are in business. The business mission statement usually hangs in a corporate boardroom and is revisited everytime a big decision has to be made. So why don’t most people have a personal mission statement??
So I started thinking about MY personal mission statement. During Bootcamp we were motivated to think about the reason WHY we are stripping. Why do I continue to do this job? Yes, of course, I know you thinking “Money, duh”, but think beyond the obvious reason. The more important question to ask yourself is “Why do you want that money?
Many women fall into stripping because they have a lot of bills, and they just want to get rid of their debt. So they get into stripping to get their credit card balances down to zero. Is looking at a piece of paper with a balance of zero fulfilling? Is that why you really want money? Or how about looking at a savings account with a lot of zeros? Is that fulfilling? Maybe to some people. But really, when we say we are stripping for the money, it’s really that we are stripping for the financial security, experiences, and lifestyle we can create with that money.
My personal mission statement reads like this:
I strip in order to make a better life for myself and for my family. I get out there and use all that I have learned to create an experience that the customer will enjoy, so he will spend time and money on me, so that I can earn more money. With this money I will pay off my debt, go on trips, and spend time with the people who mean the most to me.
