Woman, 41, who left job earning six-figures to start OnlyFans hits back at claims she made a ‘terrible decision’

Woman, 41, who left job earning six-figures to start OnlyFans hits back at claims she made a ‘terrible decision’

Despite earning six figures in the day job, Zilda Williams is embarking on an OnlyFans career

A successful businesswoman who packed in her day job to start an OnlyFans has hit back at critics.

Zilda Williams, 41, has decided to throw away her corporate career as an account manager away to pursue a future in X-rated content.

Speaking in a recent interview, Zilda says her six-figure salary isn't enough to survive in today's cost of living crisis.

She told the Daily Mail: "I love my job and I've worked my butt off for years to get to where I am in this industry, but with the cost of living crisis I don't think six figures is enough to get by.

"I'm paying off a massive mortgage all by myself and I don't have a husband to split the bills with. It's just me and my rescue dog Willow."

The now former account manager actually worked as a model for numerous men's magazines her 20s, but decided to give that up to climb the corporate ladder in New Zealand's capital Auckland.

Zilda enjoys the professional 9-5 working life and the stability it provides, but when it comes to the money, something doesn't add up.

In fact, the former model says her wages are not enough to live comfortably nowadays.

Meanwhile, she noticed some of her old modelling pals were driving supercars and buying nice houses thanks to their work on OnlyFans.

She added: "I've done plenty of photoshoots in bikinis and lingerie before, so why not make a little money from it?

"I'm keeping it classy so I have nothing to be embarrassed about. It's not porn - it's tasteful stuff."

Zilda has been warned by some of her closest family and friends about ditching the 9 to 5 for an OnlyFans career.

However, she notes: "I want to pay off my mortgage and retire early. I'm never going to be able to do that in today's economy."

On top of that, Zilda also plans to start her own business with the money she makes from the adult site.

"People think I'm stupid for doing this, but I'm far from a dumb blonde. I have plans to use my earnings to start a business, so then I can be my own boss," she went on.

"At the end of the day I'm going to be the one having the last laugh. Yes it's a risk to my reputation in the corporate world, but without risk there's no reward."

Since launching her account earlier this month, Zilda says she's already making big bucks on the site.
