Friday, August 14th – Office Hours Q&A
If you’ve attended my classes you know that they’re super content heavy, and while I do my best to answer questions on the fly, it’s tough to dig in to the specific answers you’re looking for.
So for the RKC Q&A’s it’s open office hours! This is a chance to get some personalized perspective on the obstacles you’re facing in your business.
- Do you have any questions from my recent classes that we didn’t get a chance to address?
- Have you gotten stuck on any aspect of the Branding Superstar or Ideal Profile Client systems?
- Do you have other issues in your business that you’re trying to figure out?

Tuesday, August 25th – You’re Not a DomBot: Professional Edition – Self-Care, Preventing Burn-out, and Dealing with the Occasional Cognitive Dissonance of being a ProDomme
In porn and professional BDSM scenes, dominants always look calm, cool and self-assured. But in the real world it’s a lot more complicated than that.
Professional domination (and other sex work) lives at a unique intersection of specialties, and while that’s often a big part of the appeal, it can also create a unique set of challenges.
Sex workers are entrepreneurs and have to juggle all the usual business needs such as content creation, customer retention, marketing, research and development, bookkeeping, and more. On top of that, there’s social stigma, political turmoil, and dangerous clients to deal with.
All while being a #TotallySexyBitchGoddessWhoHasThingsCompletelyUnderControl
But, you are not a dombot. You are a complex human who is navigating a rewarding but difficult career and lifestyle.
It can create a special kind of cognitive dissonance when your business is to appear effortlessly powerful and confident, but the reality is more like riding a unicycle on a tightwire.
We’ll talk about concrete strategies to make sure that you’re staying healthy and happy and that you control your career, rather than letting it control you.
