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.

This is my open letter to business coaches. 

There’s some (perhaps well-meaning) advice too many coaches give to their clients. 

I know the intention is to reduce risk for your clients. But, most of the time, you’re setting them up for slower, more painful business growth. 

Today, I want to tell you exactly why you need to stop telling clients to wait until their business is bigger before they run ads. 


This Week on the Get Paid Podcast:

  • Why I’m mad at business coaches (and, yes, I still I love you) 

  • You can’t learn what works without this one crucial ingredient 

  • Some of you are accidentally setting your clients up for failure

  • Why ads are often less risky than relying on an organic model for growth

  • Organic social media marketing isn’t enough (or even that effective anymore) to help us learn about and improve our messaging 

  • What really goes into ads for businesses at an earlier stage (and with a smaller budget)
