Being a stripper
It takes more than pole-dance classes and locker-room selfies to become a stripper. Stripping -- and the hustle of selling your time and company -- is a competitive sales job in a highly stigmatized atmosphere. As a stripper of seven years, I know that my chosen work is not for everyone. I formerly worked in retail and healthcare, and I also know that those jobs are some of the most exploitative and depressing ways to make minimum wage. And so, when the times get tough, the tough get stripping!

In fact, strippers range in age from 18 all the way up into their 50s, and come in all different body types and shapes. Another thing to consider is whether you can deal with rejection and rude or aggressive customers on a regular basis, which will be common as a stripper.
Verified by Psychology Today. I was scared to death the day I decided to walk into a strip club for a job. I was 31 and living in Houston after graduating with a degree in art from Chatham University in Pittsburgh, where I grew up. I had just quit a corporate job painting murals in chain restaurants like the Rainforest Cafe, and after an impulsive try at stand-up, I realized my heart was in comedy.
