    No, I'd definitely never do this, as far as I'm concerned, giving any personal info out, no matter how trivial, is handing someone a stick to beat you with!

    I think it also depends where you live. When I danced I was a renter and I never had an issue. For one, I had great credit and one of the landlords (who is a total piece of shit but had a lot of properties) flat out told me he liked renting to strippers because they always paid on time and in cash.

    I must say, there are only a handful of "liberal" cities like this I can think of off the top of my head.

I will lie my ass off & say that I do graphic design, I get projects off elance.com & also work from my computer doing marketing. You can always print out recent bank statements OR past ones & just photoshop the numbers & dates if needed just to get a place asap.
    I explain my sites as those "penny hoarder" sites and then refer them to swag bucks and inbox dollars. My club says it's a grocery store on our w2s (just like our atm) which is a huge helper and one of the reasons I've been in the small club so long lol

    I've never mentioned that I was a stripper on any applications since civilians think "stripper" = crazy drug-fueled prostitute who will throw parties, host orgies, trash the place, and skip out on the rent. I usually say that I'm a self-employed makeup artist and I would theoretically submit bank statements if requested, but it has never gone that far. To be fair, I do have good credit so I've never had a problem with qualifying.

    Graphic design is a good cover, because it's generally thought to pay well and I doubt it will provoke many questions.

    I need to add the other problem with telling the property management or landlord that you strip is many maintenance men have access to paperwork & keys in the office...meaning if someone wants to break into your place to steal cash or other items you have no restitution if it's a handyman. & Yes neighbors gossip.

    Deposit your earnings every night after work. Open a business checking account, preferably with a credit union. Make nightly deposits of all your earnings for that night. At the end of the week, write yourself a check out of the business account and eposit that check in your personal checking account. I made my weekly draws a set amount that didn't change over the year. My last draw, on the last Friday of the year was a big one. That was the money I saved and invested.

    I’ve never had any major issues. We have creepy maintenance men that know me and another girl dance. One got her phone number from the files. I keep cash in a bank safety box, but not at the one you bank at.
