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 joins me today to share why she initially followed the ‘guru track’ and culture and what led her to eventually reject it.  She explains how she became so comfortable with talking about money openly and how her circumstances led to a shift in her money mindset. She also explains why she feels the ‘guru culture’ led her to attracting the wrong kind of clients and what urged her to stop, re-evaluate, and start her business again from the ground up.
