What, if anything will you change?
« on: 01 April 2020, 12:02:53 pm »
The past few weeks sat at home has given me a fair bit of time to reflect on work, life, everything really as I’m sure it has many others.

For me (work wise) I think I will possibly cut a day and stop thinking I neeeeeed to do 4 days when I don’t and appreciate the money I get instead of being pissed I didn’t get X amount but il also be more into my content etc cause I’m really bad with that.

At home, I’m going to slow down, take a breathe and enjoy life properly. Stop thinking everything is a chore and (cheesy I know) but if I want to go and climb a mountain then bloody climb it instead of doing it next week, month, year. I’m so routine based and I’d like to stop that.

What, if anything are you wanting to change when we eventually get back to normality?

Great thread, PP.

Well, I realised that I just worked, worked, worked, touring relentlessly. Most were profitable but there's always a few wild cards throughout the year. I'm going to have to work hard (as are we all I am guessing) to the end of the year when we are let back out BUT I have decided to save 50% of my profits as I've realised I just don't need to spend as much as I did. So for me it is focussing on saving, not spending.

I would be more disciplined, Set aside days for me time and turn my phone off on days off. Not go on dates with guys I've serviced unless they want to pay for my time. I was getting burnt out before the lockdown so I needed and planned a break anyway.

I am definitely planning on saving more and maybe appreciating freedom more because this is soul destroying being told where we can and cannot go  >:(.

I think I am finally going to put a £10 on my hour rate, been meaning to do it for a while because my rate has been the same for ages. I also will spend a bit more time working more than normal to catch up with my saving loses. On a more personal note I've been scared about getting my lips and a few other 'personal improvements' for a a while but I think I am going to bite the bullet and I've been meaning to get a fitness trainer and now that I am missing the gym (the thing I weirdly miss the most!) it time.

Yea its going to be hard to predict. I think it depends on how long this goes on for. A short time at one end of the spectrum: guys been locked up for a month and now ravenous for sex. A long time at the other end: impacts on the economy, possible recession, lay offs, problems. But its so unpredictable. I just figure putting an extra 10 on after a break can't make much difference to custom numbers but would bring me in an extra few hundred a month which after this I could do with.

Awesome idea for a thread.

This time has made me appreciate that I can actually live on a smaller earning amount if I stop buying unnecessary crap. I'll also definitely start saving...! :FF

I'd like to say I'm going to change my work and spending habits, and mean it, but it would be a lie. I miss everything about the job, socially and financially.. just want to get back to normal and pick up where I left off.

I've noticed a spending shift away from clothes and lingerie to hardware and food, including equipment so I can do more things at home.

I've also realised I waste sooo much money on stuff I don't need. With all the expenses of working this job, and cutting back on spending £50 a day on shopping, I've realized I can live off my other earnings.

I consider it a badge of honour not to advertise on Adultwork...

I'm with you Abi - I've made all the changes I wanted for my business already and I just want to get back to work :).

Definitely will be increasing my price because I’m not sure there will be as many clients when we return so I don’t want them to think it’s a buyers market. Raising  my prices and sticking to that. So I have to see less people for a higher return.

They are all expecting us to go mega low to attract them back. But at the end of the day if they want you they pay your rate it’s that simple.

Also they have saved loads of money not punting while this has been on so why not keep the price high as their wallets are full.

I was also thinking about putting £10 onto both my 30 minute and 1 hour rates. I’m just not sure though as I have some regulars that I think visit me because me price is reasonable for the area. I wouldn’t want to raise prices and then lose clients and have to drop down again to get them back so to speak.

I’m hoping that guys still have us on their mind once this is all over. But if the economy takes a dive maybe interest will flutter on us in general for a while.

[redacted]
I have considered dropping my prices, And I will be honest about my fees. I started at £100 an hour December 2018, Feb 2019 £150 and then September 2019 £170 and December £190 and still achieved a good wage. I'm thinking back to £150 an hour.

Would appreciate opinions on rates, The price that's just right, For me £150 will get 5 bookings a day when established with FBon AW. But if you have regulars and you give s good service then before lockdown I got my £190 x 4 one day but I was in work mode lol Somethimes I'm in do the least needed mode.

I think this year profit will be lower after we spend on our office space and expenses. My home is a family home so I can't save on rent.

Sorry I do go on lol But I value the opinion of you ladies that have been WGs longer and have wisdom and experience to work out what's to come. I'm just guessing myself.
