Ladies, needless to say, this is a terrible accident that happened in Cleveland Ohio on January 2. We don’t have all the details yet since it only happened a few days ago. We just want to wish her a full and speedy recovery.
To our students, please take note that if your club has 2 or more levels, this is a real danger. It’s a real reminder that this can and does happen.
Be careful out there!!
Here’s a link to the original story:
One peculiar thing about Dallas is the fingerprinting requirement. I briefly mentioned it last September when I worked a short trip there before the Exotic Dancer MBA event. Like many cities, Dallas requires entertainers to be fingerprinted and have a background check. However, unlike other cities… the process is not completed by state authorities but rather by a private agency. Read more... (192 words, estimated 46 secs reading time)
My good friend Panda made a stop into the strip club with a few of his associates. Panda is great fun! So I rounded up a few of my Dancer Wealth students from the club, and we headed to the VIP room. Panda is the prototype of a BLUE. He just wants everyone to have as much fun as he is having, no limits, just put it on the Amex Black Card. Panda is not only the dancer’s dream client, but every club needs a Panda to be their regular client. Read more... (346 words, estimated 1:23 mins reading time)
Saturday evening was a rockin’ night at Babe’s Cabaret in Scottsdale. Despite the 115 degree daytime heat, the desert dwellers and a random assortment of crazy out of town golfers trying to get a good rate filled the club by midnight.
Saturday night, as I have mentioned previously is usually couples night. This particular evening it was CRAZY Couples night! First was the table of four desperate housewives. They were the typical not-been-to-many-stripclubs in their life but by-golly-I’m-gonna-break-loose types! Although a bit demure at first, after a few drinks they were tipping the girls, and having fun. Then they started getting a little bit gropier as they tipped…even though they were told they still had to follow the club rules just like the guys. Then, they started taking their own tops off. That didn’t last very long…. Read more... (426 words, estimated 1:42 mins reading time)
Ah yes…the limited buyer…such an elusive bird…
The limited buyer comes in many different physical shapes, sizes, and colors. The one consistent factor is his 2-3 dance per girl limit. Sometimes he is easy to spot. He is a regular strip club patron and has honed his craft, and more often than not he has more experience in the sales game than most of the fresh faced 20 year olds who approach him with “wanna dance?” He brags about how his last girlfriend was a dancer, so that we consider him to be “one of us” not an outsider. Truth of the matter is that anyone who has dated a dancer understands the business, and tends to not be a target client. Other times the limited buyer is a bit more elusive and will attempt to manipulate you to spend much of your time trying to close a VIP sale by dangling false signals. Read more...

Anytime I goof up this blog (learning wordpress has a learning curve..there are so many more options than just type and publish) I will post on http://blog.myspace.com/azavalon
The StripandGrowRich.com/blog is down.
I can say that it is my fault.
I was in the process of installing MySpaceID. It is a tool that will allow you to leave comments on the SGR blog using your myspace screen name and avatar. Doug…you will like that since it’s a b-tch to have to enter in your info, email addy, etc each time. I like that we will once again have avatars in the blog comments, and you don’t have to create a new one. Read more... (805 words, estimated 3:13 mins reading time)
Babes Cabaret loves Bridget the Midget
Bridget the Midget featured at Babe’s Cabaret on Tuesday and Wednesday night this week. She was AWESOME! In the past, I’ve worked with features that ranged from mildly standoff-ish to downright prima-donna. I don’t remember her name, but recall one feature entertainer at HustlerSF demanding that she have her own dressing room. So they actually closed one of the two Champagne Rooms in order to accommodate her!
I don’t understand the midget fetish. It’s different than just “I like Asians” or “I prefer tall blondes with big boobs.” Regardless, it attracted a different…more distinctly hip-hop crowd to the normal middle aged golfer crowd that tends to frequent Babe’s Cabaret in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Flashback:The Beginning was originally posted in August 2007
I was asked the other night, “How on earth, did someone like you: a minister’s daughter, straight as an arrow A+ student…end up dancing.”
Well, it certainly wasn’t something that I planned. Nor was it a career highlighted by my high school guidance counselor. Although in my opinion, it should be.
Simple, I wanted to afford to eat.
It was October 1999. I had just moved 3300 miles across the country to be with Mr Wrong. Six weeks after arriving in the armpit town of San Bernardino, CA I found out just how WRONG Mr Wrong was for me. Read more... (1532 words, 1 image, estimated 6:08 mins reading time)
If you haven’t been checking out the Fun Stuff Page, or following my Facebook or Twitter…you have been missing the proliferation of mainstream newsmedia articles regarding the influx of desperate cash-strapped women to the industry.
As a result, I have gotten a lot of emails from women who want to know, “What is the absolute WORST thing that could happen to me if I decide to become a stripper?” I usually send them to this blogpost that I wrote way back in the earliest days of my blog, entitled The Weirdest Thing That Ever Happened to Me at a Strip Club. For all you newcomers, my original blog is located on Myspace. I didn’t transfer the comments when I republished the blog here at StripandGrowRich, but you can search for it using the date in the myspace sidebar if you want to read the comments. Read more...
