After a couple of bad weeks ( I was prescribed a damn stupid medication during my last trip to the hospital and have been slogging my way through the complications) I am finally doing better… and nothing makes me feel better than making a little money. (Well, a few things- but not many).
Tonight was my second professional consulting seminar. I addressed the ladies of Rapture ( http://www.rapturenyc.com/ ); essentialy acting as a “Dominance Consultant”. Not just a paying seminar ( I’ve been doing those successfully at Purple Passion for months now)but lodging myself on the Pro-Domme food chain where my kink demands I belong- with them giving me money. They invited in a few friends from other Houses, so I hope to be addressing other pros as word spreads. At the end of the night, the manager confirmed wanting to book me for five more. Apparently they are really getting some benifit out of it.
This week is a good one for me to be feeling better- today I taught there, thursday I am part of a panel/demo for the TES Queer sig, friday I am teaching conditioning at DSF, and Saturday I do another paying seminar at Purple Passion. If only these were all paying gigs, I could make a living at this.
This is all a really good outlet for some drives of mine that used to be less productive, or even cause me trouble (“Oh, Elvis!”). I love public speaking, and I love being good at it- I want to do some of the national circuit soon, but my health issues complicate it.
