How do mermaids make money?

Mermaiding, wearing a mermaid tale and swimming, has exploded in popularity recently. And last week I had the opportunity to chat with Abby Oliver, mermaid and leader in the Indigo Child community. One of the questions I was most curious about was how do mermaids make money?

Abby answered:

  • Birthday parties and other events (although Abby doesn’t do them because she’s an introvert)
  • Film and photography – Abby is paid modelling day rates
  • Teaching people how to mermaid, mermaid schools
  • Writing and consulting about mermaids – she’s done a lot of research so is hired to help people create their content
  • Creating mermaid tails and other products (she’s looked into this but decided not to got that direction)

And she has other ways she makes money as well and we go into all the juicy details in the full interview! I had so much chatting with Abby about how she discovered her love for mermaiding, what the heck is an Indigo Child? and how to create a prosperous life outside of the 9 – 5 model. I think you’ll love it too. Watch it here!
