"Cause you had a bad day / You're taking one down / You sing a sad song just to turn it around / You say you don't know / You tell me 'don't lie' / You work at a smile and you go for a ride / You had a bad day / The camera don't lie / You're coming back down and you really don't mind / You had a bad day / You had a bad day"
. Do these lyrics sound familiar? It's the refrain of Daniel Powter's 2005 hit "Bad Day"
, but it could also describe a not very fruitful day in the cam studio.
Although you have one of the most sought-after professions for young women in the world, since you don't need any prior experience, you don't have to undress or engage in any sexual activity, and you get to earn a lot of money, meet new people all the time, and see different interesting places, a bad day can still occur. Whether something happened at work or you are in a bad mood due to personal problems or any other unfortunate event, one thing's clear: you won't be able to concentrate properly, and this could affect your members, as well as the studio.
This is why the specific topic appeared on a private forum dedicated to the industry. A young non-adult cam girl, by the name of Sophia, asked: "Girls, how do you manage bad days in the studio? For me, the beginning of the month was great, but today was very, very bad. It demoralizes me a little and I don't understand why this happens, my score is 4.9 out of 5. Has it ever happened to you?"
. More precisely, Sophia is talking about a day with lower traffic than usual, and from her approach, you can tell that she is new to the domain
Soon, answers from more experimented webcam models came pouring in. "It happens sometimes that the traffic is bad, it's perfectly normal. The public room can't always be full of members. But if the situation persists, you can reply and I will help you with some tips",
Mallorie R. said. On the other hand, Sabrina K. answered: "It depends on many factors. Sometimes, you don't have what to do, the traffic is bad or members are not that great. It's hard, but you should get over it and understand that it's not your fault most of the time. When I have a bad day, I try to do something different since I don't have what to lose anyway".
After receiving two encouraging replies, Sophia took the time to analyze them and then posted a new message: "Thanks a lot, Mallorie! I know there are days and days, but I stress like a sucker. Thanks, Sabrina, I already feel a lot better! You are the only ones I can talk to, this is why I'm stressing you out".
In conclusion, there are things you can control and things you can't control. The important thing is not to stress about things you can't control, but rather adapt your attitude according to the situation.
