A sobering post, for sure. Whether we're talking about sex work, sports, the music industry, or writing/publishing, there is no such thing as a get-rich-quick scheme. There are a few lucky lotto winners who were in the right place at the right time, or maybe already had the right connections to pull them to the front of the line. But success is neither easy nor quick, and that's something a lot of folks don't consider before jumping into ventures like OnlyFans. That being said, more power to the ones who do make it to the top and manage to make a career out of it. I just hope the ones who don't make it that far don't become so disillusioned with the experience that they give up on themselves and assume they have nothing of value to offer the world.
