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.

Sarah Von Bargen is the founder of Yes and Yes, an online space dedicated to helping people spend their time, money, and energy on purpose. She teaches people how to navigate this stuff - money, habits, goals, happiness - because she doesn’t want you to waste months or years clipping coupons, starting and giving up on habits, or chasing the wrong goals, in the wrong way. She’s been writing about this for 11+ years and has since been able to help a lot of people.


Sarah’s experiences have helped her to effectively create helpful content for her courses, books, and one-on-one coaching. She brings some experience from years of being a classroom teacher, some from earning an M.A in Applied Linguistics (if you want to talk about neural pathways, brain plasticity, and impact of personal narrative, Sarah is the nerd for you!), but a lot of it comes from years of trial and error and lessons-learned-the hard way.


Sarah joins me today to share how her blogging and writing experiences paved the way to becoming an expert coach and consultant. She also shares how she attracts 150-300 guests in each of the live rounds of her programs, why she keeps her prices low (compared to so many others in the online business world), and how she pays herself more than $100,000 each year...

The Lead Lab: Get Paid to Grow Your List


This episode is sponsored by The Lead Lab, the program where I teach course creators and coaches how to get paid from their ads as quickly as humanly possible. I created The Lead Lab in response to the NEW reality of Facebook and Instagram ads. Once upon a time, it was relatively easy to spend a dollar and make 4 or 5 in return. But now that everyone and their mother have discovered the power of Facebook’s advertising algorithm, costs have gone up. That’s why I teach a straightforward strategy for recovering most if not all of your ad spend on your list-building ads. In other words? You get paid to grow your list.
