A woman who ditched a banking job to work as an escort and stripper says that she rakes in more than £27,000 ($30,000) a week during the Christmas holidays.
Mia Lee, a 35-year-old New Yorker, bid farewell to the banking industry half a decade ago. She traded the corporate rat race for a more daring and exciting lifestyle, which has not only been thrilling but also incredibly profitable.
The woman who calls herself a 'professional girlfriend' managed to earn almost £55,000 ($70,000) during the first two weeks of December. Business Insider confirmed this impressive income by checking her payments on Zelle, PayPal, and Venmo.

Lee speculated to the publication: "I think it's a combination of the cold weather and holiday parties that bring out more clients.
"And a decent number of them don't really like spending time with their families, so they're looking for an escape."
She was joined by Business Insider over the second week of December, where they chronicled the busy life of the escort.
In a week that consisted of debt collection, dinners with clients, and a call-up from the strip club to be on site in minutes, Mia takes her long hours and last-minute demands in her stride, all the while collecting eye-watering sums from customers and tips for her work.

However, she does give herself Sundays off to unwind. And during her week with Business Insider, she decided to use a gift card a client gave her at a 'tech-forward wellness spa'.
While, for most of the year, Mia prioritizes escort clients over putting in hours at the strip club, she explained it was "bustling right now."
"Many of my out-of-town strip-club regulars have returned to the city for pre-Christmas business meetings and company holiday parties," she added.
"The club's private rooms are in high demand right now, so I can count on them to pay for at least four hours alone with me, which will set them back a minimum of $1,760 (£1,390)," she continued.
She also said that, as a stripper, she's technically a "private contractor" at the club she works at, so she can "come and go as I wish."
Mia explained she's invested tens of thousands of dollars into various beauty procedures, which she has used to aid her to be even more efficient in her line of work.
This includes $10,000 on head-to-toe body hair removal; and $3,900 for a sweat-eliminating procedure "so I can shower less often than usual"- all so she can be ready to get to work at a moment's notice.
"Before going to the club or spending time with escort clients, I just need to take a quick shower, brush my teeth, and put on an outfit," she said.
Of her professional lifestyle, Mia told Business Insider: "Even though my job is exhausting, I truly love it. I get to be in charge of my schedule and figure out strategies for making even more money with each passing month and year.
"Having that independence is priceless."
