Think fast: two words that best describe you? If you thought of the words “mood” “killer” or “always” “seasick” then, well, it was nice knowing you. If, however, the word “party” shortly followed by “girl” flashes before your eyes, you have come to the right place.
For years, party girls have been the black sheep of cosy family reunions and the ones who “need to get their lives back on track”. It is 2019 and times have changed.
Well-known magazine The Muse claims that “Drink and success have always been closely linked.” It is true. When is success celebrated without a cork popping or a flute glass filling to the brim? Champagne bottles have made it as far as world-revered athletics tracks and the edges of Olympic-sized swimming pools. Figures just released by the Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development suggest that the more successful you are, the more you drink. According to their articles, “People who are better educated and of higher socioeconomic status are more likely to drink alcohol than others.”
Here are 5 reasons why party girls lead successful lives in business AS WELL AS on the dancefloor…
Networking comes to you like brushing your teeth: something you dont even have to think about (and if you do still have to be reminded to brush your teeth you are probably too young to network anyway). For some, being social is a chore but for you it is a reflex, honed by years of parties: the quintessential type of social environment.
In business, fluency in networking is just as important as having a solid brain in your head. After all, businesses and countries arent run by superhuman machines, they are run by people like you and I. And that person could be the one admiring the canape assortment of the next party you go to.
For many men, a party is the ideal hunting ground for a little lady who looks good in a short dress. Partying is not a past-time for the faint-hearted or the easily-intimidated. You have had countless occasions where you have needed to stand up for yourself or a friend.
The business world is known to be dominated by assertive men who dont quite consider women “up to the job”. This is not a problem for you though. There is no way this tough “boys only” atmosphere will ruffle your sequins.
It is a widely believed opinion that you have to leave a club a few-hundred poorer if you want to have a good time. If you invest your money in sketchy deals (for example $20 for a shot) that could be the case. But party girls know how to sniff out the good deals from experience and instinct. A ten minute chat traded for a cocktail.
You learn how to prioritize your funds early on in the game, always investing in legal taxis and negotiating for free champagne.
Staying up to four A.M. is an art form – especially when you are engaging in intense physical activity such as leaping around on the dance floor. An ability to do this says a lot of things about a girl: you love life AND you have a truck-load full of stamina in your nature. This stamina is easily translated to the dimly-lit office where other people struggle to keep their eyes open from nine to five, let alone stay productive. If party girls can play hard, they can for sure work JUST as hard!
Party girls are everything but boring. A person with bounds of character and energy can be hard to come by in the monotonous corporate world so you will naturally stand out. You will be seen and talked about. Any publicity is good publicity, right? So when it is time for a promotion, your name is more likely to fill the space.
You know when to leave the mini dresses behind and slip into something a little more “office-esque” because of the hundreds of dress codes that you have had to abide by in the past. But flair is never something that has to be left behind.
