ILAB 147: Stripper Economics 101 – How Lucrative is Professional Dancing

“This whole industry is not regulated at all”

Lauren Allen


A semi-retired stripper turned Super CEO, this bitch has seen it all.

Sex, Psychedelics, Music Festivals, and an abusive relationship sent this queen on a journey of exploration and self-discovery at 18.

Hella mistakes, alcoholism, and a ballsy jump into the strip club a year later catapulted her to become her very first mindset client.

Her intuitive approach to the hustle, soulful sales strategy, humor, and trauma-informed mindset work makes her a sexy + well-rounded coach whether you’re 9-5 or shakin’ that ass.

You can expect a Sailor Levels of cursing, lots of laughs, brilliant brainstorming, and a business bestie that will hype you up as you bust through your own bullshit.
