Lila Payne's background was in entertainment and the beauty business.
"I actually used to work as a children's entertainer. I was also a hair and makeup artist for circuses and theater, ballet and opera. That's what my background is. And then there was a time in Sydney, Australia when I was working as a
bartender, and I was thinking, "What do I want to do with my life?" and I had some friends who were escorting, so I asked them about it and decided to give it a try.
"I told my mom what I wanted to do and she was really supportive. My family has been really supportive, which is great. Originally, I thought I'd only do it for a year or two, but then when I got into it, I realized this is what I want to do for the rest of my life. Nothing in the world makes me happier. I think it was what I was born to do, and I can't imagine doing anything else.
