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.

An award-winning screenwriter, business strategist and the creator of Story School, Jamie Jensen has helped over 700 entrepreneurs increase their sales by up to 900% with the power of effective storytelling. Prior to helping business leaders connect deeply with their audiences through copy, video, and talks, she worked in story development in Hollywood, assisting writers in both film & television. 

Today, Jamie’s on the Get Paid Podcast to chat about her transition from running a copywriting agency towards launching courses,  the strategies that worked and the ones that didn’t, dealing with grief while running a business, and how the change in business model affected her bottomline. 


“The power of authentic, vulnerable storytelling is that you create permission for other people to face things that in their own life and history that they maybe aren't looking at. ” — Jamie Jensen


“Some months ‘I'm like, oh my God, my life is over. My business is terrible. I'll never make enough money, what is happening!?’ In the next month, ‘ I'm like, this is amazing. I'm the luckiest person ever. Business is easy. I'm making so much money. I'm abundant.’ ” — Jamie Jensen

240+ Precise Interests You Can Use In Your Targeting


Today's episode is brought to you by a Google spreadsheet. People tell me all the time that choosing Facebook and Instagram ad targeting makes them want to throw their computer out the window and I don't blame them. There are a ton of options and that makes it easy for you to flush money down the Zuckerberg drain. So, I put together a big old list of what Facebook calls ‘Interests’ for you and a totally free spreadsheet separated out by niche. I also created a short PDF that explains how to go about using those interests so you don't waste a ton of time putting together your audience. 


Take the guessing out of Facebook and Instagram ad targeting.
