There really isn’t a good way to address this subject so I’ll just blurt it out. Here goes… *deep breath*
Stop drinking at work.
If you think you need alcohol to ‘get you in the mood’ or ‘enhance your effectiveness’, I’ve got news for you. You’ll turn into a alcoholic long before you get rich. Besides the empty calories, 5 drinks = 500 to 1500 cal., it is really not attractive to be a blundering idiot while trying to take your clothes off. No, your not sexy and it doesn’t help your money. All it does is make you vulnerable. Alcohol and/or drugs do not aide you in any way. If you cant strip while sober you should re-evaluate why your there and make some internal changes.
Be strong and stand up for yourself when customers strongly ‘encourage’ you to drink with them. If you are any good at what you do, you can ‘party’ with them and enhance their experience without putting yourself at risk. And if they absolutely insist, order a mixed drink and a bottled water. If that is still not acceptable, then leave the table. It is obvious that the motive of the customer is not in your best interest and you should walk away. There is always more money to be made else where.
Everyone knows that when intoxicated the first thing to be affected is your judgment. Staying sober gives you more control over the situation. Most customers want to just sit back and be entertained. Being in control also keeps you focused on the fact you are at work. How much money you go home with is all up to you. Stay sharp and your income with increase and become more stable. Part 2 >>
