It is the smallest club I have ever worked, and the most friendliest. The theme of the Gentlemen’s Club Expo was Teamwork, which is easier to implement at cozy neighborhood clubs than upscale chains. One remarkable thing about Babe’s is the general respect the entertainers have towards each other’s personal belongings. Even though there are lockers available (which I personally use to lock up my purse, wallet, cell phone, and makeup bag) many of the girls feel comfortable leaving their belongings out. It is not unusually to see several expensive smartphones lined up on the counter top, and designer clothing sticking out of half open bags underneath. During the busy golf and spring training season when the club hires more girls, there is the inevitable sentiment of “It has to be the new girls…because we trust each other.” Nevertheless, this is great way to feel about the majority of your co-workers.

My evening started with the guys from West Virginia at the bar. I was sipping my Diet Coke when one of the middle aged white guys in a golf shirt stumbled over his own foot and plowed into the barstool next to me. “I’ve been drinkin’ since noon…” he mumbles. I have been actively working on my bar-hustle because I usually gravitate towards the guys sitting at a table before the guys sitting at the bar. After a bit of chit-chat I begin to set up my test-close, “The only problem with hanging out here at the bar is that you don’t have a lap!” The test close is NOT asking directly for a dance, but rather leading the conversation in that direction to gauge how ready he is to be closed. West Virginia was ready, he basically sold himself “Yeah, I need a lap for you to give me a lapdance. Lets go over there.” Read more...(378 words, estimated 1:31 mins reading time)
“You’re too tall” was my first response of the night. “Not to be rude or anything…but you’re not my type.”
I had two choices, smile and walk on by or try again. There was no one else and Mr Objection was my target client:early 40s wearing a golf shirt, his own 6 foot 2 frame sprawled across two straight backed chairs.
“Well, it all lines up when I straddle you, doesn’t it?” I replied with my best come-back.
It worked he smiled, leaned back opening up his body language and I sat in the empty chair.Read more...(199 words, estimated 48 secs reading time)
I hit Flicka’s Baja Cantina for Happy Hour on Wednesday before work with Alexis. It only took 1/4 of a Strawberry Margarita to convince me to skip work and have girls night out.
So we stocked up on Babe’s Cabaret VIP Passes and headed up to The Dirty Dawg Saloon in Scottsdale. It’s a Coyote Ugly style bar complete with dancing bartenders who hang from the rafters. A few of them had REALLY good acrobatic skills. I have long considered this type of bar job the “gateway” to stripping. I did it myself in my early twenties when I was too shy to dance. I worked as a bartender/cocktail waitress/beer tub girl at bar that was a cross between Hooters and Hard Rock Cafe. Read more...(147 words, 2 images, estimated 35 secs reading time)
9pm: DJ Billy cued my theme song (ahem…push play on the embedded video for sound effects) You’d think it would get old by now…but naaaaaah!
“Good Morning Avalon!” he says sheepishly from the elevated DJ Booth
I gave him the “huh?” look through the flashing strobe lights. “I always wanted to say that to you.” he jokes, and then proceeds to coach the crowd to sing “Avalo-on” during the chorus. The headbanger at the tip rail was loving it, as he thrashed his long brown mane up and down while showering the stage with Washingtons. Read more...(746 words, estimated 2:59 mins reading time)
The drive to Vegas was hot and sunny. I learned a long time ago that long road trips with the convertible top down REALLY tires me out. The drive took 6 hours this time due to the tourist traffic across Hoover Dam. I hope that bridge is completed soon. Took a quick nap and clocked in at Treasures at 7:30 pm. I paid the offstage fee since I walked in the door with a 5 hour deal already closed.
The Whale was waiting. Read more...(539 words, estimated 2:09 mins reading time)
I spent about four hours this afternoon on conference calls with my design and mastermind team! I’m really excited about relaunching this program and making it BETTER than it has ever been before.
Back in October 2007, I blogged about how spending $300 on Stripper Sales Training was the absolute BEST thing I did for my stripping career. Prior to Dancerwealth I was not a top income earner in my clubs. I was always profitable, I worked hard, but I didn’t have the skill set to be a SuperStripper.
Guess what: skills can be learned, mindsets can be changed.
We only get an edited look at the world around us. That is because our beliefs act as filters, screening out any evidence that doesn’t support what we want to believe is true.
1. As humans, we make life choices that harmonize with our beliefs. We unconsciously choose to put ourselves in situations and associate with people that fit our preconceptions. We avoid people and situations that might weaken or challenge what we believe to be true. Read more...(353 words, 1 image, estimated 1:25 mins reading time)
I devoured my $0.80 copy of Buyers Renters and Freeloaders yesterday as I sat in the sun.
It was well worth the eighty cents. Dr. Harley’s writing style makes it easy to read and his clear-cut philosophies just make perfect sense to me.
Although the book is designed for people who are dating, there is a lot of good info for ‘ole married broads like myself. I have always been fascinated with psychology. I want to discover why I make the choices that I do, especially if it was an out-of-character choice that is inconsistent with my typical values. Moreover, understanding other people’s motives have helped me keep my head (somewhat) straight in this crazy industry. Read more...(888 words, 2 images, estimated 3:33 mins reading time)
Nothing to write home about. As I expected I sat around for a few hours and then hustled my butt off after midnight. I did meet an interesting character who told me that the next time he came in I should wash my hair in rosemary and eat garlic. Whatever floats your boat buddy!
I have several pressing items on my agenda today, so I don’t have time for a long post. Instead, I would like to highlight a post from Kim Kiyosaki’s blog at www.richwoman.com I’m a huge fan of hers and have been gradually shifting from the traditional retirement plan to the RichWoman planning method for the past 3 years.
