Claire Pelletreau was just starting to grow her side business as a Facebook ad and marketing consultant when her full-time job disappeared. Desperate to land enough clients just to pay the bills, she was disappointed at how difficult it was to find real tactical advice that would help actually her get paid month to month. The Get Paid Podcast is Claire’s attempt to pull back the curtain on the reality of running an online business. All these people pulling in “six figures” - how are they ACTUALLY doing it? What kind of money do they take home after expenses? What are those expenses, anyway? Are they truly “solopreneurs” or are they supported by a team? What does that team do for them? How are they marketing their offerings and growing their lists? How long did it take to get to where they are? You’ll discover how different entrepreneurs get paid and what it costs them to bring in that money.

If you’re someone who’s putting yourself out there, creating a personal brand, and connecting with potential customers, you’re going to find this episode particularly interesting.


I’ll be going through the 7 key skills that I think are essential if you want to set your business up for success. Here’s a quick summary:


  1. Be remarkable: You have to be compelling, interesting, and stand out from the crowd.


  1. Be able to sell: I used to get scared when it came to asking for a sale. Things were awkward and it took time to get comfortable with it.


  1. Write things that move people to take action: It doesn’t matter whether it’s social media posts, video scripts, or emails, the words you write have to motivate the reader to take the action you want them to take.


  1. Be comfortable out in public: When a big opportunity comes along, you want to already be comfortable talking to others about your profession.


  1. Tune out the noise and keep trying new things: It doesn’t matter if the noise is from those around you or your own “inner voice.” You need to learn to stay focused on what matters.


  1. Be willing and interested in doing mindset work: It took me nearly four years of being in business, but when I finally met with a mindset coach I realized what I’d been missing out on.


  1. Have a willingness to be coached: Even though I figured a lot of things out on my own, opening myself to the idea of being coached helped to scale my business and fast-track my success. 


While not everyone’s situation is the same, I believe these are the seven things you need to maximize your chances of being successful.
