We know that our dancers have one common reason to work as a stripper at Rhode Island Dolls in Woonsocket, RI – the money. It’s usually the main motivation for any job. Sure, you might like the atmosphere, or you may genuinely like the job but you wouldn’t be doing it if you weren’t getting paid for it likely, would you.
If you want to make real money though, if you want dancing to be more than just a fun hobby that happens to earn a little extra spending money, showing up early for your shifts can make a big difference. Some think that they are losing money if they show up early.
Check this out for a little motivation to get to work early:
#1 Create Opportunities For Success
Although being a dancer at RI Dolls is a lot of fun most of the time, you’ve got to remember that it is a job, just like any other job. You should always do your best work. And showing up early shows that you take your job seriously. Your managers will see that you want to be successful and that you are aiming to be the best at what you do when they see you at work before your shift even start. When you get to the club early, you can get your work attitude ready before you start. Get in a good mood (this does not mean having a drink or two before work though!). Find out if there’s anything new happening, like changes in policies or new employees. See who is at the tables? Do you see your regulars or favorite customers? When you are early for work, you can find ways to be successful in your upcoming shift.
#2 Demonstrate Good Work Ethics
If you are known for showing up early, everyone will see that you have good work ethics. Managers, co-workers, and even customers will see that you are committed to your job. It also shows managers that you care about your job and that you are serious about it. If they know that they can depend on you to be there on time – even early most of the time – they will reward you in the future with your choice of shifts and even by sending new customers your way by recommending you to them.
#3 You Have More Time To Prepare For Your Shift
When you show up early for work, you won’t be rushing around to get your costume on or make sure your hair is perfect. You won’t be scrambling to put on your makeup or hope that you have time for a bathroom trip before you have to go on stage. When you show up early, you have plenty of time to prepare yourself, both physically and mental, for your shift. You can take that extra time to make sure your hair and makeup is perfect. You can listen to the music and start getting into a dancing mood. Since you’re not rushing, you probably won’t forget anything. You’ll be nice and relaxed and ready to dance, instead of being a ball of nerves from rushing.
#4 You Can Warm Up For The Crowd
You know which days are the busiest and what times the big crowds and high rollers start coming in. If you show up earlier than you’re scheduled, you’ll have time to warm up before the crowd comes in. Your first couple of dances can be thought of as stretching your body and warming up your muscles. Your confidence will be up by the time it gets busy, since you’ve “practiced” before your shift actually started.
There’s a famous phrase that states “success breeds success.” Since you already have a few bills stuffed in your garter because you were successful at the beginning of the night, you’ll be even more confident to make the big bucks during the busiest part of the evening. When the customers see the money in your garter from earlier in the day, and the other Dolls dancing have nothing in their garters yet, customers will automatically assume you’re really good. They’ll want to give you more money.
#5 More Money!
This is obvious to most strippers, but not to everyone. The more you work, the more customers you can perform for, and the more money you’ll make. So, if you show up for work an hour early, that’s just more money in your pocket at the end of the night. Even if you’re coming into work in the afternoon when things are usually quiet, you will still have more money than if you showed up for work on time.
