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.

Courtney Foster-Donahue is an actor by trade, a four-time entrepreneur by accident, and host of The Courtney Show on purpose. She helps other entrepreneurs build, grow, and scale their businesses through her suite of acclaimed online programs including FB Framework™, The Course Course, and her content-free membership, Thrivemind.


When she's not serving her students, she hosts The Courtney Show, a weekly web series combining business education with entertainment.


And today, she’s joining me so we can talk shop about what really goes into building a million dollar business, how a career singing, acting, dancing and spinning a plate on her head helped her build a million dollar business, and why Princess Parties are where it’s really at.


“A lot of people roll their eyes at evergreen funnels and things that are automated. And that doesn't make sense. Businesses should be in a place where we can get solutions to people when they need them, ” — Courtney Foster-Donahue
