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.

How did you determine the product your market needs? How did you launch your online course? How did you start getting clients? How do you get paid? These are several of the questions I ask my guests on the show and in season 1, I answered a few of these very questions on how I ran my business, worked with clients, and got paid in my first year of online business.


But, like many things - the way I get paid today is significantly different than how I did in my first year.


On today’s episode, I share my “origin story” and some of the things I did in my first year of online business. I share how things have changed and evolved over the years and the steps I took to close out a $220K year.  I also share the most shocking revelation I’ve had regarding my former attitude toward spending money as well as how I started my first group program and how it has evolved to become a huge revenue source for my business today.



“The biggest thing I learned about myself is that I seek - and flourish - off of external validation.” - Claire Pelletreau
