VIP escort service – Big cash for a little passion?

The discussion revolving around the topic of buyable love is just as old, as this line of business itself. In many countries, prostitution is illegal; in others it is strictly regulated, and in some places it has become a normal and accepted part of society. Many people connect prostitution to human trafficking; to failed existences and great suffering. Others see a respectable service branch, which is a fixed part of human culture. As a legit way to live out sexual fantasies, to reduce anxiety, or simply to have some fun. All opinions are valid, since this profession has many features from dark and repulsing to beautiful and positive.

A view into the history of VIP escorts

Already hundreds of years ago, so-called courtesans took care of the sensual desires of wealthy merchants, royals and kings. These ladies were not only of exquisite beauty, but also well-educated and knowledgeable about the court’s etiquette, and thus very well paid. In Rome, during the 16th century – in the time of the renaissance – courtesans were part of the high society; they were invited to sumptuous banquets, were companions of bishops, bankers and monarchs. The most famous of all courtesans of this time was a lady called Tullia d’Aragona, who pampered her suiters not only with her feminine charms, but also intellectually with philosophical discussions in different languages and – as a well-known, prolific author her impressive skills in poetry.

The major difference …

… between a professional escort service and a normal brothel is quite obvious. The courtesans of ancient times are today called VIP escort models whose service well exceeds the sensual side of the business. Eloquent and stunningly beautiful, they are self-confident companions for any sort of events and a trustworthy, intellectually stimulating temporary girlfriend. Great examples are the models of one of the most renowned escort agencies in Europe. This company exclusively works with ladies, who choose this line of work as a lucrative and enjoyable side business. The models can freely choose if they want do date the gentleman in question and how far they want to go.

A brothel on the other hand is exclusively designed to give the clients what they are looking for in the most efficient and straight forward manner: physical satisfaction.

A lucrative side job: escort model

It is a fact that women can earn quite a bit of money when working in the escort business. The most expensive escort – a lady in New York – is known to make up to $50,000 USD per date! In average, girls in this line of business earn between $200 and $400 USD for two hours. Agencies or independent escorts offering dates below this time frame are not considered professional. Ladies who work together with an agency pay a certain percentage to the company. The escort agency on the other hand takes care of all arrangements, the marketing and the financial part, which in return saves the escort time and money.

Side Business and New Investment Opportunities

Side Business and New Investment OpportunitiesMany state and local governments revised their laws in the aftermath of the recession to encourage new businesses. The reasons are clear.

Additionally, technological and cultural changes result in new opportunities. Consider the following side/main businesses:

Home Baking

If you make a fantastic specialty bread or muffin, you are in luck. Many states revised their cottage food laws, and now people can sell goods baked in their own kitchens through a variety of venues. California’s new law began in 2013, and home bakers can sell directly to consumers through farmer’s markets, roadside stands, and even online. Bakers there can even apply for a “Class B” license and sell their goods to indirect sellers such as restaurants.

Cottage food laws come with several restrictions. Selling foods that have meat or dairy are pretty much prohibited. Some states cap what you can earn from a cottage food operation. In California, cottage food operations could have annual gross sales of $45,000 in 2014 before the operator had to rent commercial kitchen space.

Tutoring

Did your friends turn to you for help with English and Math classes? Are you a teacher looking to make extra money? You should consider tutoring.

Tutoring is big business in America with revenues of $4 billion annually. Parents want to address academic concerns. In response, some areas deregulated zoning laws to allow individuals to tutor more than one person at a time. These changes permit people to tutor a group of three students as opposed to just one student at a time. Skype allows someone to tutor students from the comfort of his or her home.

Marijuana

Marijuana for recreational use is legal in 4 states. Marijuana legalization is on the ballot in Nevada in 2016, and advocates hope to have ballot initiatives in states such as California and Massachusetts for that election. With these changes, you might wonder if investing in a marijuana business is for you.

Marijuana is still illegal at the federal level. There is a risk that a new administration will crack down on marijuana businesses. You also have to be conscientious of how state laws are written. In Florida, only 21 of the 7,001 nurseries in the state are eligible for licenses to grow medical marijuana.

Factors to Consider

Make sure to check that you have the appropriate permits and insurance if you start a home-based business. Talk to a lawyer so you have a legal structure (i.e. sole proprietorship, LLC) that is right for you. Examine investments carefully to avoid fraud and limit difficulties.

Media discussions about regulations frequently concern federal agencies such as the EPA. However, state and local laws often have a strong impact on business opportunities. As a citizen, make sure you hold politicians pass regulations based on public health and safety, not fear and favoritism.
