When the COVID pandemic hit and my business was destroyed. My sales dropping by 90%. So, I needed to do something for a living. Having put myself through college by cleaning carpets, I knew I could make some money doing that. I bought a carpet cleaning van and decided to stand out from the crowd by dressing as a maid for work. The first job I took on was April 29rh 2020. I wore a pink maids dress and had no idea what the customer’s reaction would be. They might send me on my way or worse.
It took me a good ten minutes to pluck up the courage to open the van door. Once I’d done it, I was both feet in. I unloaded the portable machine used to clean apartment carpets and buzzed my way in. The customer greeted me, and I went to work pre-spraying the carpets and cleaning them. The customer paid, and I was officially in business. I had three more bookings over the next few days to end the month.
I advertised on Craigslist in the home services section and it was very fruitful. In the nine months since, I have done 521 jobs and well over $100,000 in sales. Best of all, I get to wear a sissy dress to work all day, every day. I have been turned away by two people who were obvious transphobic but that is all. Many of my customers love my dresses and I’ve received many referrals. I’m now in my 10th month and doing repeat jobs for clients.
Compared to a few years ago, when going out dressed in daylight was an impossibility, I’m now out there in my sissy dress six days a week interacting with people as a gurl and loving it. It has been a huge boost to my self-esteem, and I am earning a living at the same time. I never would have dreamt that I would be dressing up for a living but here I am living the dream. It took courage to go to the first job and weeks before I would arrive at a job and just get out of the van without seeing who was around and if I should or should not. Now it is just who I am, and I don’t think twice about it, better still, I am proud of who I have become. I am more comfortable with the gurl within every day. Nicki has always been a part of me. Now she is me and I am enjoying every minute… and getting paid, too!
