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.

In all the feedback I’ve gotten about the Get paid Podcast, the most common request was to hear from business owners who are outside of the B2B, teaching-people-to-build-businesses arena. So when I was introduced to Kim Greco and heard about her business, I JUMPED at the chance to interview her.

Kim is the owner of Paws and Possibilities, a dog-training business that’s expanded into multiple locations (and states!) and is starting to introduce less traditional revenue streams in order to continue its massive growth. Kim was so much fun to talk to, both about business and animal training, and her advice on hiring should NOT be missed.

In this episode you’ll hear:

-- Kim’s long and surprising history of training animals, and how she transitioned from working with some more exotic species to training dogs.

-- How Kim figured out her own secret to “having it all.”

-- The key questions she uses when interviewing potential dog trainers (which made me REALLY uncomfortable).

-- The one thing that allowed Kim to transition away from building a business that was based entirely around herself and her years of experience.

-- The details of Paws and Possibilities’ first online course, how it’s priced, and why Kim is shying away from a membership model.

-- Why she’s not all that interested in licensing her very unique dog training methodology.

-- The progression of Kim’s revenue numbers since before she brought on help until the present.
