I quit my day job as a social worker and am now making 1,000 a week from my side job – it has changed my life
A social worker who quit her day job is now making a whopping £1,000 a week from her new part-time job.
Michaela Ogilvie, from Ramsgate, felt depressed about showing up for work every day before taking a leap of faith and making the shocking career change.
The 32-year-old got into an argument with her old manager and as she was driving home, an ambulance crashed into the side of her car.
Then one of her clients died in a nursing home after confiding in the social worker that she wanted to stay in her own bed.
Michaela decided this was a turning point in her life and felt unfulfilled in the role and set up an OnlyFans account.
She told KentOnline: “You have a lot of responsibilities as a social worker so it’s not a job you can do half-heartedly.
“I wasn’t happy – I was really depressed when I went to work.
“I enjoy it so much more than community work – it’s so liberating.”
Michaela said she has never been happier since she found a new sense of control in this new career.
Since the switch, the content creator has amassed nearly 20,000 followers on TikTok and 30,000 on Instagram.
And last month, the cam girl was already in the top 2 percent of creators on OnlyFans.
But Michaela admitted there are some downsides to maintaining a career in adult entertainment.
“Sometimes you get into your head and you feel a little cheap,” she said.
“Sometimes I worry about what people think of me.
“Men ask me to do things with them personally and people think I’m an asshole — but I’m actually celibate.”
The 32-year-old explained her content has leaked to other social media platforms in the past – but she’s not letting that stop her.
For Michaela, her increased sense of independence and financial stability after a tough past feels all the sweeter.
Getting to where she is today wasn’t easy for the camgirl.
She spoke about growing up in Scarborough and dreaming of becoming rich while living in foster care at the age of 13.
Michaela described being passed around from one temporary shelter to another until she found an apartment when she was 16.
But soon after things took a dark turn and she said: “I got an apartment when I was 16 but some drug dealers used me because I was vulnerable, they drugged me and got me drunk and then my apartment used as a base.
“I didn’t normalize after that, left my keys at the apartment and made myself homeless.
“Well my advice is think of your wildest dreams that make you excited to be alive.
“Achieve those dreams and just go ahead and smash those goals.”
Her top tip for success in this area is to let go of self-confidence and not worry about what others think.
“If I can rise from dependent and homeless to social worker and then to the top 2% of OnlyFans, then why can’t you achieve what will set your souls on fire and give you energy for life?” she added.
This is happening as many people around the world are resigning to pursue a career in the adult entertainment industry.
