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.

Eman Zabi started a copywriting business in the upstairs bedroom of her parents’ house in Qatar. Now the founder and copywriter behind The Scribesmith, Eman and her team work with entrepreneurs launching courses and membership platforms.  


Eventually, she realized that her love of research meant that her skills were best suited to the launch space. With a background in neuromarketing, international politics, and economics, Eman and her team take a strong research-driven approach to create copy that maximizes ROI, or as they like to say, gets clients an air-punching bottom line. 


Eman now lives in Vancouver with her cat (Scribesmith’s Chief Officer of Cuddles), traveling every other month, drinking copious amounts of tea, and complaining about how it doesn’t rain enough.


This week on the Get Paid Podcast Eman joins us to chat about investing in mentorship and building relationships, and what being a young, brown, Muslim woman in business can sometimes feel like. 


“I think there's so much noise in our industry and there's nothing I would hate more to be than to be adding to it. So until I have something that’s different and can an impact, I don’t see the point in creating a course” — Eman Zabi

The Most Important Training for Course Creators 


If you're like me, you've heard the talk: “Evergreen funnels aren't effective. Only certain types of businesses can actually sell on autopilot”. But, that's not true at all. I’ve made $50,000 in revenue with Mariah Coz’s evergreen funnel strategies. 

Now, you can walk through her entire system in her free class: ‘How To Sell More Courses With An Evergreen Sales Funnel’.  It's kinda insane how detailed she gets in this training. Visit to get it right now.
