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.

Abagail and Emylee founded Think Creative Collective just months after meeting each other online. What began as a conversation over wine on Abagail’s office floor transformed into building a community and business that had ridiculous goals, dreams, and ideas. Together they built a multi-six-figure business in under 12-months by helping thousands of creative entrepreneurs build a soul-fulfilling and freaking profitable business.

When they’re not building their empire you can find Abagail arranging fresh flowers, cuddling her rescue beagles or sipping on a McDonald’s Coke (yes, even she has weaknesses). If you want to catch up with Emylee you’ll need to head to the local coffee shop to find her (and make sure to buy her an extra shot). Otherwise, she’s creepily watching her daughter sleep or posing her newest houseplant for an Insta-worthy gram. 

This week on the Get Paid Podcast, Abagail and Emylee join us to chat about how they made $200k in their first year, working through adoption and brain injury to get their launch done, and the challenges of hitting $1 million.

“Find people that are adding to your bottom line. For a long time, we just hired to fill holes and do things that we used to do to get by and weren’t necessarily adding value, whereas other people were hiring people that add definite revenue.”

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.
