How Did You Get Started In The Adult Industry (Linda) and What Do You Love About Being A Part of The Australian Adult Industry?
“Introduced to the world of dance at a young age, I was a classically trained dancer at two and a half. I have had the privilege of competing in numerous state and national level dancing events, winning many titles. My most valued titles include The Royal Academy of Dancing Grade Awards & Most Potential Award. After proving my skill to the dance industry, I then began dancing full time at one of the most prestigious dance schools, Dance World 301. It was then that I decided that I would teach Contemporary and Classical dance styles. This passion for dancing led me to start dancing at adult entertainment venues in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast. I have danced at a variety of different venues across my ten year dancing career including Players Showgirls, Kittens then becoming a Bar Supervisor at The Men’s Gallery. It was during this period of my career where I found myself heading off to an accountant to get a tax return lodged as a Sole Trader. I remember the experience being not an overly great one, and on top of that, living in a small town, I was hoping what I was doing for work was going to stay in those four walls. That experience lead me to do my own tax return the following year and I found that I really enjoyed it. So, I enrolled into University and began on my path to a career in accounting. Throughout my study I continued to dance and upon finishing I found myself helping other girls I worked with to sort out and keep track of their finances. When I began my own practice a few years ago, some of my first clients were girls from the industry. This then gave me the idea to start Empire Industry, the first finance and accounting practice solely dedicated to helping those working in the arts and entertainment industry. It’s an extremely meaningful business, where I get to mentor and educate women working in the industry and assist them in achieving their financial goals. Empire has given me the platform to make tax and accounting less scary, less judgmental and continue to empower women. The business is incredibly innovative, respecting the schedule of a client working in the adult industry Australia wide."
Why Do You Feel You Deserved To Win The X Awards This Year?
“The team at Empire not only offer a service to support the adult industry, but we take time to mentor and educate our clients. Our goal is help as many industry workers and businesses as possible to empower and support in reaching financial goals."
What Do You Believe Makes You Stand Out From Other Adult Directories in Australia?
“We are 100% online/phone based which means our services are available Australia-wide. We're transparent, confidential and professional but most of all - we're relevant, kind and approachable."
