Hey again! It’s me, Angie. Thanks for visiting U Camgirl – allow me to introduce myself.
Before Webcam Modeling
I’m a 25 year old girl living in Eastern Canada. Before I became a webcam model, I was really frustrated with my job. Let’s see…
- long shifts that interfered with my personal life and left me too exhausted to effectively pursue my real passion (I’m a musician)
- working my ass off just to pay my rent and scrape by
- my job was really the center of my life, but I didn’t care about the job so I was really unfulfilled.
- Omg, and working for a bunch of idiots…lol
I dreamed of the day that I would only work for one.
When I first heard about webcam modeling jobs, I was pretty interested. I have to admit, though, I was a little skeptical because of all the ads that say you can make like $10,000 a week. That’s ludicrous! ha, anyway I read in a few places that the average for first time models is around 20-40 bucks an hour. That sounded more reasonable to me – I mean, it is adult modeling.
Enter Webcam Modeling
The idea of even doubling my income was too good to pass up.
So I started moonlighting with InternetModeling.com a couple hours a day on top of my regular job just to check it out. I should mention that my boyfriend was really supportive in all of this, and nowadays he’s proud to tell his friends that he’s dating an adult model, lol.
Evidently, my moonlighting experiment went fairly well. I waited a couple months to see how consistent my income could be (it fluctuated, but averaged out to “really good”). In July 2013 I finally quit my day job. OMG I can’t even tell you how relieved and empowered I felt!! It was fucking fantastic.
One thing I was a little scared of was what other people would think of me if they found out about my new job. I mean, there’s definitely a social stigma associated with the adult industry. I usually keep what I do to myself, but that’s just me. For real, if you met me in real life you would never in a million years imagine that I’m a webcam model. I’m totally shy and I guess I seem really innocent to most people. My close friends know, and of course my boyfriend, and that’s pretty much it.
They all surprised me by being totally cool with what I do!
For the past year (writing this July 2014) I have only had to work like 3 hours a day, and I have more than doubled what I was making before (not quite tripled, but I am astonishingly lazy, haha).
I take a day off (or a month) whenever the hell I feel like it. I work when I feel like it. I can wear what I want, do what I want, be who I want to be and pursue the things that actually matter to me during all my extra free time.
I am so grateful for all the freedom I’ve found through webcam modeling. I live a life free of work-related pressure, free of constraints in terms of my time and money. Of course there are other stressors and it’s not perfect (nothing is), but it’s damn better than what I had before. Before, I was a dreamer who dabbled in recording music; now, I’m in the middle of producing my first album. I also have the opportunity to share this with you.
What are you passionate about?
You are passionate merely by the fact that you are a human being, and you have a unique gift to offer the world. Do you have a dream that is sitting on the back burner waiting for you to have the time and the means to pursue it? I have always dreamed of helping people in some way, and that’s why I’m here.
I want to help you achieve your dreams.
