When starting their career, many webcam models are afraid they will be exposed to family and friends, thinking “What will they say about me?” or, “Will my family accept me after they’ll find out what I’m doing?” Most prefer to have a fair talk and confess their profession, but not every model has that courage.
There are also the brave ones who tell their parents, even before starting the webcam race, no matter what the answer will be. When the reaction is positive, the model has more confidence in talking about what she does and her safety is reflected in the shows, and of course, in her income.
Something similar happened with Camila, a model with four-year experience in the field. Her family supported her and never told her to give up her dreams. She told her parents before even starting the “Camgirl” career and it was a positive experience.
When asked about her job, some friends were worried, but in time they started to understand that is just a job. Camila is just an example but out there, you will find thousands of webcam girls with successful stories. They were not afraid of what people will say about them. Instead, they chose to trust their gut and started working for a better life.
Many models expect a bad reaction when they confess what they do, because of the taboo that still exists in the industry. However, parents and friends put aside bad opinions and accompany their trajectory no matter what comes along. Dare to confess that you want to be a webcam model, it can be beneficial. Keeping a secret, for a long time, becomes a more complicated challenge every day, and it can affect your shows and work performance.
Even if your parents agree, it is okay to still feel a little fear. It is normal to be afraid to start something new. Think about videochat as any other job, where you are supposed to go and learn all you can, as fast as you can and the results will arrive immediately. Trust yourself and it will be okay!
