Are you a prostitute or are you a consultant?

Not sure where this list came from, but a few of them hit close to home:

  1. You work very odd hours.
  2. You are paid a lot of money to keep your client happy.
  3. You are paid well but your pimp gets most of the money.
  4. You spend a majority of your time in a hotel room.
  5. You charge by the hour but your time can be extended.
  6. Creating fantasies for your clients is rewarded.
  7. It’s difficult to have a family.
  8. If a client beats you up, the pimp just sends you to another client.
  9. People ask you, “What do you do?” and you can’t explain it.
  10. Your client pays for your hotel room plus your hourly rate.
  11. Your client always wants to know how much you charge and what they get for the money.
  12. You know the pimp is charging more than you are worth but if the client is foolish enough to pay it’s not your problem.
  13. You are rated on your “performance” in an excruciating ordeal.
  14. The client always thinks your “cut” of your billing rate is higher than it actually is, and in turn, expects miracles from you.
  15. When you deduct your “take” from your billing rate, you constantly wonder if you could get a better deal with another pimp.
