OCCUPATION: Escort, Author, Advocate
LOCATION: Currently, no one location for any length of time
WHAT’S YOUR HUSTLE: Selling my time as an escort, selling my books about escort work (The Internet Escort’s Handbook Series), working to change attitudes/perceptions/laws around sex work – yeah, it’s sort of vertical integration
WHAT DOES YOUR HUSTLE MEAN TO YOU: It means I do three different jobs and only one pays the bills. But I don’t work for anyone other than myself and I like that a lot. I have the freedom to do almost anything I want — provided I have the energy/time/means to do it. It does mean I spend more time on the computer than I would like, but I guess that’s life nowadays.
IF YOU COULD HAVE ONLY THREE TOOLS FOR YOUR HUSTLE, WHAT WOULD THEY BE: laptop w/wifi, digital voice recorder, a few trusted friends
A WORD OF ADVICE TO WANNABE HUSTLERS IN YOUR FIELD: Depends on which field we’re talking about. Escorts? Research, research, research and follow your instincts. Writers? Persevere. Believe in what you’re doing or don’t bother getting started. Activists? Have a very open mind, be ready to meet some amazing people, be ready to stand up for yourself.
