Dancers at strip clubs can always use more tips for making better tips, right? After all, the point of being an exotic dancer is making good money. Sure, you might like the job. You might love dancing and enjoy the freedom of being able to work a schedule you enjoy, but when it comes right down to it, you’re likely dancing because it gives you the opportunity to make the most of your time.
If you’re working as a stripper at RI Dolls in Woonsocket, RI, here are a few more ways you can maximize your income.
Don’t Drink On The Job
There are lots of dancers who love to have some drinks on the job. They might even use some recreational drugs to “enhance” their performance. But avoid it whenever possible. If you’re high or drunk when you’re working, you lose sight of what’s important – making money. Plus, if you get drunk or high while you’re working a lot, you will likely put your job at risk at some point. Stripping isn’t an excuse to party.
Know When to Walk Away
When you’re dancing for Chatty McChatterson and he’s not throwing you a single dollar, it’s time to move on. Every dancer has that one customer – and sometimes, there is more than one – who just wants to talk and talk and talk but never wants to pay. Gently remind your client that you’re on the clock and hint that he reimburse you for your time. If he doesn’t pull out his wallet, it’s time to move on to the next guest.
Work On Your Personal Life
Remember that RI Dolls is a job, not your life. Sure, you make friends when you’re working there. You have a good time and it might feel like a never ending party but it’s important to have your own life that is completely separate from your work. Take a class, join a club, go on vacation, and spend time with friends and family. These are the things that will truly make you happy and when you work on your personal life, making it into the life you want, it shows in your attitude and your outlook. And when you’re satisfied with your life as a whole and seem happy, you make more money!
Enhance Your Natural Beauty
You’re probably gorgeous when you go au natural, but it’s good to add some gloss and liner when you perform. Style your hair, slap on some makeup, and show your patrons just how beautiful you are.
Don’t Skip Workouts
Having a hot body is one perk associated with working out regularly, but it’s not the only one. Regular workouts give you the energy that you need to bump and grind all night long, and it’s a lot easier to earn extra tips when you’re not panting from exhaustion.
Despite what some onlookers may think, you’re more than just a pretty face. Clients, especially the ones who are willing to dole out large amounts of cash, want someone who is intelligent and witty. Anybody can rub against a pole, but it takes a special girl to be able to discuss the stock market or debate intellectual topics during a private session. Some men don’t care what you talk about, but you’ll learn that many of them genuinely want to hear your thoughts on various topics.
When you have a good time performing for the club, it will show with every movement that you make. Enthusiasm is just as contagious as the flu, so summon your inner cheerleader and get the crowd pumped up every time that you hit the stage. Don’t be afraid to wear silly outfits over your sexy lingerie – guests love that!
Mix it Up
There are clients who will beg you to dance to the same song every time, and it’s okay to give in most of the time. Just remember that stripping is a job, and any job gets boring when you do the same thing over and over again. Learn some new moves, switch up the songs that you dance to, or get a few new outfits. Change is always a good thing when you’re a dancer, and the benefits will be reflected when you count your tips.
You might be an awesome dancer, but you also have to be an incredible businesswoman if you want to succeed as a dancer for the RI Dolls. Know your worth, and don’t be afraid to state exactly what you want when you’re having some one-on-one interaction with a customer. Doctors, lawyers, and teachers don’t work for free or dirt cheap, and neither should you.
