What is the Cost Of Living Crisis - Do You Have a Cost Of Living Side Hustle to Swerve it?
The ‘cost of living crisis’ refers to the fall in ‘real’ disposable incomes (that is, adjusted for inflation and after taxes and benefits) that the US, UK, and most other countries have experienced since late 2021. It is being caused predominantly by high inflation outstripping wage and benefit increases and has been further exacerbated by recent tax increases.

Former special needs teacher who quit her job to become an online model reveals she is now making MILLIONS of dollars from her Cost Of Living Side Hustle sharing explicit photos
- Courtney Tilla, 34, ditched her life as a teacher to become an OnlyFans model three years ago – and she now makes millions through her side hustle selling her raunchy snaps.
- The former high school educator, from Arizona, said she makes a whopping $380,734 in monthly subscriptions on her VIP OnlyFans page.
- She told TMZ that it would’ve taken her 25 years to make the same seven figure sum she has earned from OnlyFans if she remained in her previous profession.
- She also said to The Post: ‘Back when I was a teacher, my family struggled financially. OnlyFans allows me to provide everything my family needs’.
- Courtney insisted that her husband is supportive of her career change and helps her teach their kids to have an open-mind when it comes to all types of jobs.
She used the attention she gained from her sultry pics to create a ‘life coach’ business, which she hopes will teach women to own their raunchy side and work through this cost of living crisis using content creating as a side hustle too.
A former special needs teacher who ditched grading tests and assigning homework to become an Onlyfans adult content creator model has revealed that she now makes millions of dollars through selling her raunchy snaps online during the cost of living crisis. Courtney Tilla, 34, originally from Arizona but now living in California, shared her whopping earnings with us recently – and revealed it only took her three years to rake in all that money. According to the outlet, the model has three different OnlyFans accounts – a VIP page, a free page, and a merchandise store. Courtney explained that she has racked in the most money through her VIP page, where she makes $380,734 in monthly subscriptions and an additional $164,660 from messaging with subscribers who love her explicit adult content.
Covid-19 Followed by Cost Of Living Crisis Has Forced Households in to Side Hustling
Her kinky career has also given her a total of $50,045 in tips from fans. The OnlyFans star – who is also a mom-of-four – explained to the outlet that it would’ve taken her 25 years to make the same seven figure sum if she remained in her previous profession as a high school educator. Courtney previously told The Post: ‘Back when I was a teacher, my family really struggled financially. ‘As an adult content creator OnlyFans model it allows me financial freedom. I can provide everything my family needs and more. I no longer have to worry about the cost of living crisis.’
And while the model is enjoying lavish vacations to places like Columbia, Jamaica, and Hawaii, teachers across the country are struggling to make ends meet. According to Salary.com, the average salary of a teacher in Arizona is $54,667, with the average cost of living for a single person being $35,264. Many teachers are returning to the classroom this week feeling underappreciated; according to Business.org 80 per cent of educators feel like they are underpaid.
Cost Of Living Side Hustles Expected to Boom In 2023
Furthermore, teacher pay has declined over the past decade, with the average teacher making $65,090 a year in 2021.
Courtney noted that her background has helped her to become quite the philanthropist, and she told us she’s donated much of her money to homeless shelters across Los Angeles. She decided to quit her teaching gig back in 2016, and first tried her hand at bodybuilding and fitness modelling as her side hustle. And when that didn’t work out, she entered into the world of OnlyFans as her cost of living side hustle. She told The Post: ‘I was beginning to hate my job and that darkness began spilling over into other areas of my life.’
The former teacher also opened up about what her family thinks of her kinky career, revealing that her husband is supportive and helps her teach their children to have an open-mind when it comes to all types of jobs. ‘I guess I’m a sex worker. But I’m not ashamed of that,’ she said. She added that she’s also using the online attention she’s gained from her sultry snaps to create a ‘life coaching’ business that she hopes will help inspire women to own their raunchy side too. ‘I work with hundreds of women all over America, Australia, Europe, and everywhere,’ she explained.’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.’ ‘ My cost of living side hustle has changed my life forever. 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,’ she told The Post.

How to balance your full-time job with a Cost Of Living side hustle.
You may have an idea for a business but not know how to balance your cost of living side hustle with your current job – especially if this is your first time launching a business.We asked some entrepreneurs how they managed to fit in their side hustle around work. Felicity Pryke, who set up her own yoga company Finding Felicity added an extra hour to each of her working days, allowing her to switch to a four-day week while getting the salary of 4.5 days. ‘My salary only dropped by 10 per cent – your income drops by even less due to income tax. Unless you’re on a very high salary, you can probably make that back by having a full day extra to focus on your business,’ she said. Jessica Ross, founder and CEO at marketing agency Smashtag Social, reiterated the need to balance the day job and side hustle so as not to burn out.
‘Keep a list of priorities going for your side hustle, so that you have a running list to work from,’ she said. ‘Decide if it really is a side hustle that you want or whether you actually want to do that job full-time.’If your side hustle is something you’re actually working towards doing forever, just make sure it’s not a hobby as otherwise you may find yourself hating it when you have to do it under pressure.’ Finally, Julia Kermode, founder at self-employed network IWORK, stresses the need to stay on top of your finances. ‘The free trading allowance is only £1000 and you will need to tell HMRC about any income you earn over this. ‘It might be boring, but when you start your cost of living hustle it’s wise to always set aside some of your profits for tax. ‘Keeping on the straight and narrow from the outset will make life so much easier as your business grows and flourishes.’
Earning extra money on the side surges in the pandemic: More than half of Britons with 'side hustles' started them in the last 18 months
- About 10% of those surveyed are considering a side gig if they’re furloughed
- Those with side hustles added an average of £6,300 more in income this year
- Airtasker estimates side hustles are worth around £346bn to the UK economy
More than half of Britons with ‘cost of living side hustles’ started during the coronavirus pandemic, new research has found.A survey of 2,000 UK workers by online freelancer marketplace Fiverr found 58 per cent of those who are moonlighting in some form began doing so after March 2020.According to the firm, more Britons have been encouraged to earn extra money from irregular employment due to the pandemic, higher living costs and the need to ‘deliver a perfect Christmas’. In addition, it discovered that 23 per cent of workers said worries about losing their job are making them contemplate beginning a side hustle, while about 10 per cent said they would consider it if they are furloughed.Younger people are also more likely to have branched into side hustling, with 31 per cent of 16-24-year-olds having an additional job compared to about a fifth among the population overall.
Those with cost of living side hustles have added an average of £6,300 more in income this year. Examples include online sales, public relations and marketing, copywriting, gaming, website development, and television, film and music production.Though Covid-19 has encouraged more people to earn a little money on the side, side hustles have grown more common in recent years as wage stagnation has led many to find increasingly unconventional ways to pay the bills.They can also be very lucrative for the broader economy. One study by local services marketplace firm Airtasker has estimated that side hustles are worth about £346billion to the UK economy. On publishing the research, Airtasker’s co-founder Tim Fung said: ‘The global pandemic has made many of us rethink our lifestyle and what’s important to us, so it’s great to see so many Brits learning new skills – whether it’s been to pursue a passion or hobby, diversify their skillset or to further their career development.’
Rising number of UK NHS staff and carers ditch frontline jobs to become adult content creators on Fan Platforms where they make up to £50,000 A MONTH — amid cost of living crisis and Government pay row.
- Charities warned increasing numbers of NHS staff are turning to sex work
- Unions claim the Government’s pay rise has led to workers ‘leaving in droves’
- Some former carers are earning more in a week than they had done in a year
A growing number of NHS and social care staff are quitting their jobs and becoming adult content creators on Onlyfans & similar platforms like fanbombing.com, due to the cost
of living crisis, charities claim. They are swapping tireless and poorly-paid roles in frontline health and care for the adult site — where some make up to £50,000 a month.
Unions have warned staff are leaving in droves for ‘better paid, less stressful jobs’, with record inflation making this year’s 4 per cent pay rise a ‘massive pay cut’.
Campaigners said the high number of women in the sectors meant it ‘isn’t surprising’ they are being lured into online adult work.
Belle Grace, 26, from Yorkshire, left her job as a carer for children and adults with autism last year, where she was paid roughly £1,600 a month.
She has now become an OnlyFans sensation and makes between £7,000 and £51,000 monthly.
Former healthcare assistant James Cowe, 23, from Bournemouth, also made the switch last year after being ‘insulted’ by the Government’s proposed pay rise.
And Hollie Munroe, 25, from Hertfordshire, has been able to move to Marbella on the back of funds she got from quitting her job as a carer for and becoming an adult content creator.
Model Started Only Fans to Beat Cost Of Living Crisis
Heather Underwood a single mom, 32, from Stoke on Trent started an onlyfans account xHeather30x to beat the cost of living crisis. She makes around £200/day, and also does web camming to boost her income.The increase in younger entrepreneurs, as well as job volatility during the pandemic, has also led to a rise in those who started their business while not in full-time employments. The number of micro-business owners who were unemployed before starting their business was 5.7 per cent before the pandemic, while those in part-time work was 7.9 per cent. These figures have risen to 7.3 per cent and 11.7 per cent respectively. ‘I’ve run a number of side hustles in the past, from craft and knitting supplies to remainder book sales; and a hobby business is a great way for people to earn some extra money,’ said Rob Peters, a business owner who now runs brokerage Simple Fast Mortgage. ‘It’s in tougher times when the cost of everything is rising that innovative business ideas are born, and those ideas can often turn into successful full-time businesses or vocations.’ Twenty-two year old Cameron Langstow from Plaistow, East London works part-time as a postman but launched Bark + Shout, a pet accessory company, in April 2021.
'My giant M-cup boobs changed my life': Former accountant went from a dull job to making $43,400 A MONTH on OnlyFans after getting 32 litre implants.
Jazmyne Day 28, from Melbourne Australia ditched her accountancy job to become an onlyfans sensation. She thanks her M cup 32 litre breasts for her success and is considering going larger.Her assets are now 4.5kg. Now based in Las Vegas, Jazmyne is a natural D-cup, but always dreamed of having bigger breasts – particularly after losing a whopping 32kg in weight and gaining 9kg of muscle. ‘I always wanted to have a slim athletic look with big boobs’ the Welsh-born star told the News. ‘I never liked how deflated my natural breasts looked, and really wanted to get them done.’ She also revealed she ‘hated accounting’ but thought it was ‘what she was supposed to do’. ‘I never had a passion for it. I always felt repressed, like I had to be this serious business woman. It meant I couldn’t wear pink, I couldn’t embrace my feminine side,’ she said. The star also advises women to ‘live their lives for themselves’ and if they want to achieve a certain look to ‘go for it’. The Only Fans creator also said that despite having 32-litre boobs, she would still go bigger. ‘Boob greed is real. I don’t have any concrete plans, but it is something I want to do in the future. ‘I had my bum done earlier this year, and I also want to go bigger with that. ‘We will see what happens, but for now I’m the happiest I’ve ever
Are you prepared to be a Content Creator If it Mitigates Your Financial Cost Of Living?
OnlyFans is a social media platform used primarily by adult content creators, who sell personalised pictures and videos to followers who pay a monthly subscription.
Adult worker support charity Beyond The Street said it is ‘deeply concerned’ by the rise in care workers turning to the website.
A spokesperson said: ‘Financial vulnerability can be a driver into the sale of sex and online sexual content.
‘We are a charity who works alongside many women who have been exploited whilst in vulnerable situations and are deeply concerned by any increase of involvement due to the impact of the cost of living crisis.’
The charity is supporting at least one former healthcare worker who has made a similar change.
The English Collective of Prostitutes, a campaign group which supports women in adult work, told MailOnline: ‘Women, especially mums, have been the hardest hit by the cost of living crisis.
‘As nearly 80 per cent of NHS staff are women, and wages are now lower than they were in 2010, it isn’t surprising that growing numbers of NHS staff are turning to sex work to supplement wages that don’t cover the cost of living.’
Ms Grace said while she misses her old work, she prefers the new lifestyle OnlyFans has afforded her.
She started her account in May 2020 while still working as a team leader in a care institution for children and adults with autism.
Her bosses found out and confronted her with adult content creators pictures she had shared on the platform so she quit in January 2021 because she was already earning £7,000 per month from the side hustle gig. Now, on a good month, she can earn her entire old yearly salary in a fortnight.
Being an Adult Content Creator is Hard Work & Long Hours
But it isn’t easy work being an adult content creator, she said, as she still puts in 16 hours a day, seven days a week, to grow her account.
Mr Cowe earned more in his first three days after joining OnlyFans than he was getting in a month as a healthcare assistant.
He would work three 12-hour shifts a week in a dementia care home and ‘was always exhausted’.
After the Government announced a 1 per cent proposed pay rise for NHS workers last year, he said felt he ‘had no choice but to look for another industry to go into’.
He said switching to OnlyFans was ‘by far one of the best decisions’ he has ever made.
The Government has since increased the NHS pay rise to at least £1,400 for nurses, paramedics and midwives. They received a 3 per cent pay rise last year.
Care workers in the private sector do not receive the same rises, with many staff still paid minimum wage.
Doctors and nurses have threatened to strike over their salary hikes, which unions argue amounts to a ‘pay cut’ given soaring inflation.
Ms Munroe was previously earning around £8 an hour in her job as a carer for the elderly.
But she made £3,000 in her first week on the subscription site in 2019 and never looked back.
Ms Munroe moved to Marbella after a fortnight on OnlyFans as an adult content creator for what was supposed to be a holiday, but never came back.
As well as OnlyFans, carers and NHS staff have been leaving in large numbers for jobs at Amazon, Lidl and restaurants, which often pay better.
Hospitals are already short of 50,000 staff across England, according to a Government report last month.
Will Strike Action Force More NHS Women in to the Content Creator Side Hustle with Platforms like Fanbombing.com in 2023?
And the problem in social care is even worse – with an estimated 100,000 vacancies. Many female staff are leaving to become adult content creators Unite has started to ballot its 100,000 health and social care workers on possible strike action amid staffing and pay concerns. The Royal College of Nursing also started asking its 465,000 members if they want to strike. Dr Denise Chaffer, president of the Royal College of Nurses, said nurses are relying on food banks and staff retention is now a ‘critical issue’. A spokesperson for Unison, the largest trade union in Britain, told MailOnline: ‘Many health and care staff have had enough of barely-there pay rises, exhaustion and stress. The cost-of-living crisis is the final straw. Many are leaving to pre register on adult content creator sites like Fanbombing.com which launches in early 2023. ‘They know they can find work in other sectors that pay far better and don’t have the same pressure.’ ‘The government must pay better wages to retain and recruit workers.’
Meet the Brits who've traded in NHS and Social Care work to earn thousands taking their clothes off for strangers online
Belle Grace, from Yorkshire
Belle Grace, from Yorkshire, was a team leader in a care institution for children and adults with autism but now earns up to £51,000 a month on OnlyFans as an adult content creator. She started her account in May 2020 while still working there and her bosses found out later that year. They called her into a meeting and spread pictures she had shared on the site across the table, she was mortified she claims. She broke down in tears and asked her boss if she would be sacked, who said the private care home would have to take legal advice. After taking a week off work, she returned on weekend shifts to minimise how many other staff members she would have to interact with. She told the Daily Star: ‘I was so upset. I never wanted work to find out. I always wanted to keep it separate because it’s my private life, not because I’m ashamed. ‘If I was going to quit work, I would have told them why I was leaving and that I do OnlyFans as an adult content creator. ‘I didn’t mind that part but it was seeing my naked images from my OnlyFans. Nobody at work knew other than me and my boss.’ She quit in January 2021 because she was already earning £7,000 per month from the side gig, she claims. Ms Grace once got paid nearly £300 by a follower for a video of herself just washing her hair. But most men want to see more of me.
She told YorkshireLive: ‘I get requests for tickle videos, hair washing or hair plaiting videos as my hair is really long. ‘Once a guy paid £295 just for me to wash and brush my hair whilst in the shower and watch the water drip from the bottom.’ Her family and friends were ‘very supportive’ when she made the move to adult content creator, she said.But she has also received death threats from commentators on TikTok, which she uses to advertise her less explicit content.She now works 16 hours a day, seven days a week to grow her account, which has more than 1million followers. While she misses her old work, she says she prefers the new lifestyle OnlyFans has afforded her. After huge blowback from the profession, nurses received a £1,400 pay rise — around 4 per cent for most — in June, although unions have argued this amounts to a ‘real-terms pay cut’ because of sky-high inflation rates of around 11 per cent. Mr Cowe went on to earn more in his first three days than he was getting in a month after joining OnlyFans. He left his job after six years and has already amassed more than 7,000 OnlyFans followers, charging £9.88 ($11.99) a month for subscriptions. He told Pink News: ‘With the pressure from the coronavirus pandemic causing all healthcare industries huge amounts of strain, ‘I worked a total of six years in the healthcare industry for very little pay at the end of the month. ‘Starting OnlyFans as an adult content creators is by far one of the best decisions I have made in my career to date. I made over a year’s salary in 22 days through OnlyFans as an adult content creator.’
Hollie Munroe, 25, from Hertfordshire Quit NHS for Onlyfans
For some carers, switching to OnlyFans as an adult content creator hasn’t just allowed for a better life in Britain.
Hollie Munroe, 25, from Hertfordshire, quit her job caring for the elderly to jet off to Marbella in Spain, where she lives off her cash earned as an adult content creator on the site.
After five years of being a carer — in which she would work up to 60 hours in a week — she decided to give it up for some of the easiest money she’s ever made.
She told the Daily Star: ‘I get paid for doing basically nothing. I just sit on my phone for a few hours and that’s about it really.
‘Every day I get up, go to the beach, go shopping and come home. I just got sick of England and thought I could rent in Spain while doing a lot less. I don’t miss England at all.’
She was previously earning around £8 an hour but made £3,000 in her first week on the subscription site in 2019 and never looked back.
Ms Munroe moved to the Spanish city after a fortnight on OnlyFans for what was supposed to be a holiday, but never came back.
She said: ‘I was going to loads and loads of houses for really s*** money.
‘Of course, there are bits to it that I miss. I enjoyed my job, I liked all of it because it was rewarding. But it was the money for me — I only got paid £8 an hour.’
Her monthly income varies depending on how much she chooses to post on the site as an adult content creator.
But she said she has no plans to move back to the UK because she is enjoying the Spanish lifestyle too much.
How the USA and World Citizens feel about the Cost of Living Crisis
As inflation is much too high, the average price of products is also increasing in the US. Image: US Bureau of Labor Statistics.

What is the Consumer Price Index?
The Consumer Price Index (CPI) measures the change in prices that consumers pay for goods and services, explains the Bureau. It reflects spending patterns for each of two population groups: all urban consumers – which represent about 93% of the population – and urban wage earners and clerical workers. Inflation for all urban consumers is measured by two indexes: the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) and the Chained Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (C-CPI-U). The CPIs are based on prices for food, clothing, shelter, fuels, transportation, doctor and dentist services, medicine, and other goods and services that people buy for day-to-day living. Prices are collected each month in 75 urban areas across the country.
How US and global citizens feel about the cost of living.
April’s inflation figures and May’s interest rate rise come as a quarter of the global public say they are struggling financially.
In the US, 16% say they are finding the situation quite difficult or very difficult, according to an Ipsos poll for the World Economic Forum, compared to 66% of Turkish citizens.
People in the US are the most positive about disposable income over the coming year, with 26% expecting it to rise, although a third expect it to fall. However, around two-thirds of Turkish (63%) and British citizens (60%) expect their disposable income to decline.
It remains to be seen whether measures taken to reduce inflation can curb the global cost of living crisis
NHS worker in UK turns to New Fanbombing.com Adult Content Creator Platform because she can't afford to pay her bills.
The single mum from West Yorkshire says she can’t survive on an NHS wage alone.
A teenage NHS health worker has pre registered as an adult content creator with the new adult subscription platform Fanbombing.com to make ends meet. The West Yorkshire woman, who does not want to be identified because of the nature of her job, is advertising herself as
@prettyface&tinywaist says she is preparing for when the site opens in early 2023 because of the vast number of (300+) categories that adult content creators get to choose from to be listed under. They can choose 1, 2, 3, or 4 categories maximum. She says she needs the intervening time to mentally prepare herself for the explicit sexual content and nude photos & videos she will be asked for by both men and women.
She has been building up followers on instagram, twitter, tiktok and other social medias and feels that in a few months she will be best placed to earn a substantial cost of living side hustle on fanbombing.com as an adult content creator, so she can build a good future for her child and herself. As well as being available for sending pictures and videos to men, the woman said she also wants to talk about intimacy with men and women who found it difficult to speak to their partners about problems. I’m a natural listener and talker and will put my existing day job skills to good use.
Size 18 mum makes enough on OnlyFans to pay for kitchen and school trip to Italy
A mum who used to worry about her post-baby body has decided to embrace her curves – and now funds a luxury lifestyle for her children by selling raunchy snaps of an ‘average’ bod online. Sophie Geraghty, 31, is a plus-sized model selling photos of herself on Only Fans as an adult content creator and promoting body positivity – while earning money to pay for her children’s designer clothes and foreign school trips.Size 18 Sophie used to worry about her size and even banned scales from her home. But with the support of partner Simon Arnold, 32, she began posing for raunchy snaps to boost her confidence – and then realised that plenty of people would pay to see them. Sophie has been able to renovate her whole house with a new kitchen, go on family holidays, kit the whole family out with top-of-the-range phones, and even pay for her daughter’s school trip to Milan.
Sophie said: “I started doing Only Fans five months ago, and in these five months as an adult content creator, the possibilities are enormous. I have been able to do things for my family I never would have before. I no longer have to worry about where my next bit of money is coming from and no longer living day to day worrying.”I make up to £2,000 a month, as I used to be a stay at home mum this has changed my life. I have been able to renovate my house and even get a new kitchen, everything in my house is now brand new, whereas before I would struggle to even buy a washing machine. “Two days ago I was able to just spontaneously get a £1,000 tattoo as the money is now there. “
My Side Hustle has saved my Bacon
I have even been able to pay for my eldest daughter’s school trip skiing, something I wouldn’t have been able to do before, it is so good to know I don’t need to worry anymore. “We have also been able to do things as a family, we can go on holidays as well. I’ve never been in such a good financial position as a result of this cost of living side hustle, working as an adult content creator. I am taking home about £2150 a month. “I bought four brand new iPhone 13s with my first money we had from Only Fans, we’ve never all been able to have top of the range phones out of contract before. “I’ve also had the kitchen re-fitted with new furniture throughout the house, a washing machine and dryer and a new dining table which is big enough for us all an as well as an Xbox one and PS5.
“The biggest amount of my earnings are going towards my breast uplift surgery that’s costing £6,500, and I’m able to happily pay without my family worrying about how much my bills will be. It has made me be able to give my family better opportunities, it means I can send my kids all the clubs they want to go and able to buy them the trainers they want and the clothes they need for dancing classes. “The classes such as karate, football and boxing are things I could never afford to let them do before.
