As both an activist and an entrepreneur, I have found my experience in sex work invaluable. Some of the skills I have been able to transfer from sex work include:
1.) An ability to communicate with people from ALL countries and cultures regardless of whether we speak the same language or not.
2.) Confidence that I am equal to ALL people regardless of how much wealth, political power or fame they may posses.
3.) An ability to think out of the box when solving life’s inevitable problems.
4.) Sensing the secret and not so secret motivations of individuals and being able to assess their needs.
5.) Building bridges and making connections between seemingly disparate concepts.
6.) Understanding that reality is rarely reflected in conversation or convention. People have layers to their lives.
7.) Being resilient, resourceful and self-reliant. I never give up.
