After leaving a'male-dominated' job, an ex-cop earns $2.3 million on OnlyFans.
Charlotte Rose joined the police force at the age of 18 – but quickly left the "male-dominated" job to earn a living online.
Former police officer earns $2.3 million after abandoning her uniform and launching an OnlyFans page selling raunchy photos.
Charlotte Rose, a British woman, joined the police force at the age of 18 but left at the age of 20, claiming she disliked the male-dominated work environment and that the job was unsuitable for her.
Now 27, she earns up to £150,000 ($A270,000) a month selling an online subscription service for access to her sexy photos – and is living out a childhood dream of driving a £265,000 ($A480,000) Lamborghini.
However, while some OnlyFans creators take their images and videos to a more explicit level, Charlotte – who was invited to join the platform at its inception in 2016 – maintains a "tame" account, which she believes contributes to her success.
“Everyone assumes OnlyFans is just pornographic content – which I have nothing against, but I personally do not engage in that type of content,” she explained.
“My page is very understated, but it works because I am a niche marketer. Numerous pages are hardcore, but I will refrain from doing so. I enjoy having a unique page. I'll pretend to be a guy and speak to the camera as if it's a guy to cover some fantasies, but it's mostly just me speaking to them.”
While Charlotte initially did not take her OnlyFans account seriously, she said that as the platform grew in popularity in late 2018, she began uploading more regular content and sometimes working 14 to 16 hours a day on her online job.
“It's personal for me, and I've developed relationships with a select group of my fans with whom I communicate daily and am intimately acquainted,” she explained.
“I know their children's names and job titles, and if they're having a bad day, I'll send them a voice message and some pictures of my dogs to cheer them up.”
Charlotte's fortune, however, has come at a price – her social life.
“I might venture out once every six months for a night with the girls and the occasional dinner, but otherwise I'm at home hustling.
Typically, I work 14-16 hours per day, and even when I'm on vacation, I'll work between four and six hours to ensure that new content is always available.
“I can't recall the last time I took a day off.”
Charlotte's popularity and fortunes have soared as a result – but her fans do not want to see her content change.
“I have a devoted fan base who tell me they would leave my page if I became more explicit, and I thrive by being unique.
Other girls are astounded that I earn as much as I do without putting in more effort on camera.”
She also maintains accounts on Instagram: @charlieerose3 and @charlotterose 1993.
While she earns between £115,000 and £150,000 ($A208,000 to A270,000) per month, she has not completely transformed her lifestyle.
Charlotte claims she spends less than 5% of her monthly earnings, preferring to invest in real estate and an Amazon supplements company she purchased.
She has purchased only one high-priced item – a £265,000 ($A480,000) purple Lamborghini she has coveted since childhood.
“When I was a child, I used to dream of owning a purple Lamborghini, but no one believes children when they say such things,” she explained.
“While test-driving it, I felt on top of the world, but it now feels more normal to me.
It was a truly proud moment when I collected it – and I was accompanied by my parents, who still cannot believe how much I earn.”
Charlotte – who aspired to be a veterinarian as a child and was accepted to Cambridge University but did not attend – said her favorite aspect of the site is the freedom to be her own boss and be creative with her content, but added that it is not easy.
“The most difficult part is the competition – there are always girls chasing you to get to where you are,” she explained.
“Some people believe it's easy money and that all you have to do is post a few nudes, but they don't realize how many hours a day I work.
As far as I'm aware, I'm the highest-earning person who does what I do within the boundaries I've established, and I make a point of constantly working to earn that.”
