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.

What figure comes to mind when you think about growing your business? The number most people talk about is revenue. And, when you’re focused on growing revenue, this is what drives the business decisions you make. 

During my last launch, however, I had an epiphany. There I was, getting ready to sell a valuable course on evergreen with a low price offering of around $300. If I sold 100, that would make me $30,000 – which is nothing to sneeze at, right? But then I thought about my mentors and the people that I respect (such as the many fabulous guests we have on this show). They’d be quick to tell me “don’t sell anything for less than $5k.”

This made me question myself: what am I doing launching a course that’s selling for $300? If I want to go from a $300k business to a $500k business, an extra $30k barely moves the needle.

But, should revenue growth be the most important driver in my business? I thought long and hard about it. And, when I considered what’s really important to me and my family, I had a great epiphany that led to this mindset shift. I’ll be sharing all the details with you in this episode.
