A former school teacher has spoken about how she earns a six-figure income online posting sexy pictures on the social media platform OnlyFans.
33-year-old Courtney Tillia, who hails from Arizona, left her job as a special needs teacher more than four years ago and now enjoys “financial freedom” thanks to her adoring fans online and a following of more than 200,000.
Tillia, who is married and has four children, says that she now provides “everything” her family needs as a result of earning four times what she was making as a teacher back in Phoenix.
Courtney Tillia, her husband, Nick, and their four children now live in Los Angeles.
Her hubby, Nick, supported her to get into fitness modeling and bodybuilding when she left her job in 2016 — not long after, she met a boudoir photographer who invited her to model.
Speaking about her success, Tillia said that she had made more money over the past year as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, which has meant millions of people have been stuck at home browsing the Internet.
She has a master’s degree in special education and now puts her teaching experience to use through a life coaching business, where she works with women all over the world to empower and help them to overcome shame and guilt about their sexuality.
The former teacher: “I work with hundreds of women all over America, Australia, Europe, and everywhere. I’m helping those clients break through the shame and guilt that’s been imposed upon them for wanting to be free to express their sexiness.”
She revealed: “I knew right then and there I wanted to keep experiencing that feeling of being powerful and sexy. And more importantly, I wanted other women to feel that way too.”
Tillia spoke about her reasons for moving away from teaching in schools and pursuing her new career, saying that she ended up hating her job and found herself in a dark place.
When she met the photographer, who introduced her to boudoir photography, she was unsure at first what to expect, but said it made her feel “liberated.”
Discussing whether she feels criticized for being a sex worker on OnlyFans, Tillia said that she was not “ashamed” and feels happy to be doing what she enjoys as well as “changing the lives” of other women.
Courtney Tillia explained: “I guess I’m a sex worker. But I’m not ashamed of that. I feel better than I ever have in my life. I’ve changed my life financially. I’m changing the lives of other women. I’m happy just doing me.”
