Carmela Clutch, a 35-year-old Las Vegas resident and former marketing manager for top sports clubs, has boldly transitioned from a gruelling corporate career to financial independence by selling adult content online. With a significant following of 349,000 on Twitter (@carmela_clutch), she openly narrates her journey from overcoming adversity to achieving fulfillment in her professional life.
Carmela’s story of transformation began in 2019, amid a bout of burnout from working over 100 hours weekly in a demanding corporate role. Despite her success and a coveted marketing degree, she faced financial struggles and disillusionment. Her life’s trajectory shifted following a stage 0 cervical cancer diagnosis, prompting a re-evaluation of her priorities.
“I quit, and at 27 years old, I moved back in with my parents to decide what to do next,” Carmela reflects.
Her journey led her back to college to study medicine, and eventually, a sabbatical opened doors to the adult content industry. Utilising her marketing acumen, Carmela embarked on a new career path, creating and marketing adult content.
“At first, I was working behind the scenes, helping on photoshoots and managing shoots. Then an unexpected opportunity arose, and I found myself starring in adult movies,” she explains.
Despite initial difficulties and lukewarm support from her biological family, Carmela’s persistence in her new venture brought her success and independence. “Once I had a taste of success, financial freedom, and personal autonomy, I knew I could never go back to anything close to a 9-5,” she declares.
Now earning a six-figure income and working predominantly from home, Carmela is preparing to launch a merchandise line and expand her brand, with ambitions to establish a production house.
“I have fun, travel, and make connections worldwide. My fans say I make a difference in their lives, and that’s all I ever wanted – to help people,” she concludes.
