Case Study

My name is Jenni Jo and I have always wanted a title. So I gave myself one! You can refer to me as Jenni Jo Tension Tamer®. I have been a licensed massage therapist since 2003, an Instructor of the Yamuna Body Rolling Self-Care method since 2011 and a dreamer since 1972. I have had the great pleasure of creating a niche market within the touring and entertainment world as “Massage therapist to the RockStars”.

I wanted something that I could drive up to a venue or to someone’s doorstep and the ambiance & environment is ready already! My Peace Pod is relatively new and working within the hours of my children’s school has kept my business flow a little limited (for now!) Even with limited availability, I’m super grateful for the interest, business and press I have received since my Launch: Airstream Life! Magazine, Massage & Bodywork Magazine & Willamette Week “Best Of”. I feel very lucky to have support and encouragement in my ‘Lil dream!

Case Study

My name is Marike van der Velden and I am the founder and owner of the largest high-end escortservice in The Netherlands: Society Service. The service we offer is called the Girlfriend Experience, which means spending time with an escort will feel similar to spending time with a girlfriend. The experience is very intimate of nature and often includes eroticism, but this is not the main focus of the experience, merely the cherry on top. The social aspect of booking is just as important, if not more.

At any given time, there are around 55 male and female escorts working with Society Service. They cater to clients from all walks of life, from ambitious businessmen to nervous virgins and curious couples. The aim is to create a mutually enjoyable, memorable, and extraordinary experience. This experience does come with a price tag of at least $1,000 per booking, resulting in a multi-million dollar annual turnover.
