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.

It’s the Season Finale of the Get Paid Podcast! I am super excited about this episode – but even more excited about our guest on the show today. She is someone I have followed for about three years – like, to the point of having “stalker-y overtones” and invites to drinks (repeatedly). Unfortunately, we have not been able to have those drinks due to the pesky thousands of miles between us, so to have her on the podcast today is pretty much the next best thing.

Ash Ambirge – the spicy writer with a love for explicit language – is the founder of The Middle Finger Project blog. Her insanely successful blog and brand is well-known throughout the blogosphere for its vulgarity, and – impressively enough – this voice has enabled her to grow her online business, using her blog as a conduit – to sell a lot of products and services online. Today, we dive into her story about how she made her blog such a huge success, what she does to market her business, and what she sells on her blog.
