Being An Independent PSO Is Like Running Your Own Entertainment Studio

Today there will be a taping of an Anderson Cooper show — the daytime one, not on CNN — in which phone sex work will again be discussed. I am privy to this knowledge as I was in talks with a show producer to be on the show; but declined as anonymity, so important to me, really couldn’t be arranged.

In talking with the producer, and the other producers of the media I have been involved with of late, one subject continues to come up which fascinates the producers: How being an independent PSO is like being the sole proprietor of a one-woman studio.

As I’ve said before, phone sex operators are more than actresses or even improv performers. We are writers, directors, editors, audio and visual/graphics departments, and anything else required to produce entertainment. More than that, we are also office staff, managing the mail; accountants, managing the money; marketing and advertising departments, bringing in the clients; and the sales force, closing the deals. All before we even take our calls. And, of course, we are then managers going over the books, interpreting the data, deducing which expenditures were worthy, which were not, and continually adjusting efforts for maximum rewards. We might also be making money in other ways, maximizing our websites by selling ad space, making money in affiliate sales, reviewing products, etc. We are small business owners, managing and wearing all the hats — if only to purchase/find what we need.

And we participate in continuing education in our field too.

As exhausting as that sounds, those of us successful in this business enjoy designing our businesses from the ground up, with nothing but our ideas and talents to invest and make the home based business grow. We are rewarded financially. We can set our own schedules around our other obligations and interests. We even have the nearly instant gratification of knowing that we please and satisfy each client we serve. And, in most cases, the financial rewards are also (nearly) another form of instant gratification, with payments just days away.
