    Dizzy I Wish I Knew Then What I Know Now. Cam Girl Regrets

    I guess it's my thread so I'll go first.
    This probably more applies to the veteran girls as others might not realize their mistakes yet.

    What is your biggest regret so far from this job. Looking back on things now my biggest regret is not capturing ANYTHING from the 2 pregnancies I went through on cam . I wasn't really into making videos at the time, so I have 0 videos and I kick myself in the ass all the time now because of it

    Check this out if your in need of some video or phone scripts
    These are good for clips4sale videos possibly even phone sex if your more of a storyteller.

    Hanging onto my stupid vanilla career for 7 long years after I started camming, thinking I was being responsible - ended up losing my job to outsourcing and wasted so much time I could have been spending actually making good money.

    I don't know if this counts, but my biggest regret is not starting sooner! I've worked for minimum wage since I got out of high school and I could have been doing this. I recently had to quit my job because of health issues and camming absolutely saved me. I'm the happiest I've ever been. I'm making good money, I love my job and I can set my own schedule. I was crazy for waiting this long to work up the courage to cam.

    Not leaving my vanilla job way sooner.
    Putting up with my boss, she was a bitch!
    Putting the animals on the back burner for my vanilla job.

    When first starting cam not having anyone to help me or talk to about my cam job for support.
    Losing many customers due to my early lack of experience thinking I could be hot (I started camming wayyy back) and talk trash. That did not work back then.
    Working in a cam house and letting the owners keep 70% of our earnings.

    *Not blocking my state sooner on MFC.

    *Letting a few members in on my name and phone number. Once you tell members that kind of info, you can't un-tell it. And God forbid you get on their bad side...it could wind up biting you in the ass. Lesson learned. I had to block an MFC member from texts a few years ago after he went off on me just because I didn't call him first thing in the morning to wish him a happy birthday. But even if that incident hadn't happened, it was still a poor decision on my part even giving him access to my number in the first place. Especially in this business where we're so careful about protecting our identity.

    My biggest regret is that I didn't put more effort in to it. For 3 years, I kind of half assed it. Always had money to get by, but there's no savings. If I got sick right now or for any reason had to take even a full week off, I'd be completely screwed.

    If I'd taken it more seriously and put the time and effort in, I have no doubt that I'd have made a good amount of money and not be living pay cheque to pay cheque now.

    Oh well, I'm doing it now so better late than never

    The other regret is not balancing work life with a social life. I became quite the shut in for awhile and am now slowly getting out of that.
    I could go days where the only interaction I had with someone was talking to typing on a screen.

    First & foremost: not getting the 920 MUCH sooner, not getting a new puter when I had the opp., bouncing around in vanilla & falling off my cam game losing regs & now having to 'start over', not putting more effort into it earlier on, listening to my former 'friend' guilt trip me about it, (this was more about phone sex, & some of the hard core stuff 'she wouldn't talk about/do' although she had no qualms about skanging me for $$$)
    There's more, that's all I can thinkof for now!

    Not starting sooner. Getting into that last relationship was such a waste of time. I could have been camming a whole year earlier. Also being consistent with camming now. I burn out easier but camming has changed so I don't actually enjoy it as I used to.

    Managing my time effectively.

    Not taking it seriously enough, not working nearly enough hours. I also wish I had upgraded my webcam, computer and internet a lot sooner because I didn't start making really good money until I did that. I don't know why it took me so long.

    - Not starting earlier - could have made SO much money during my college years! But than again, I would have probally ditched my study because I would have knew how much potential camming has
    - Signing up under a studio at streamate that took a LOT of %, had to stay a long time of streamate to be able to sign up again without the studio
    - Having my face all over internet because of previous work I have done as a fetish model, biggest mistake is that some of the photographers know my real name (2 or 3, luckily I never told anyone my last name)
    - Not giving it 100%, making days of 4 houres, while I could have made 8 or more
    - Not having my own site to promote my cammodellinl; working on it right now!
    - Starting out at 2,99, because I thought 4,99 was the max and didnt dare to more than 2,99 which I though was high allready LOL; will never go lower than 7,99 pvt and 9,99 excl.

    I haven't been camming long but I am seeing the effects of my mistakes; not taking advantage of the new girl status, not logging on regularly and not showing enough self confidence on screen. I am still making some of these but am working on it.

    I totally did this once, too. And I couldn't cam for, like, a week after. I just felt so USED.

    I also wish I'd started earlier. My university grades definitely suffered when I was working 35 hours/week (for the minimum wage!) on top of my classes.

    And I wish I could keep a goddamn schedule. I'm all over the place. I've lost so many regulars over the months from taking random hiatuses and camming on a whim.

    Last but not least: I regret the few times I've ever done something in private that made me uncomfortable rather than just saying "No!" When I was new, I took a private wherein the guy had me penetrate myself with all manner of household objects. Some girls don't mind that sort of thing, but I felt weirdly bothered by it for weeks. Now I only do shows that I *want* to do, and if it starts heading in a direction I don't like, I end it pronto.
