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.

Steph Crowder is the former Director of Customer Success at Fizzle and a business strategist that helps entrepreneurs balance “the head and heart of entrepreneurship.” Through her group coaching and signature program, Crickets to Customers, she equips business owners on how to develop an engaged community. Steph is the host of the Courage & Clarity podcast, where she explores what it truly takes to be a successful entrepreneur and create a life filled with love and passion for what you do.


Today, Steph shares how she honed her coaching skills and was able to apply it in a different setting that’s an excellent fit for her. She explains how it allowed her to earn over $163k in revenue in a single year, discusses how she identified the business she wanted to start, and how her business kicked off while maintaining good relationships with her former colleagues. Steph also shares the gifts she possesses that allow her to see the necessary business tweaks and opportunities that other coaches and entrepreneurs don’t see as well as her ultimate goal for any coaching interaction she has with her clients.


“Strategy divorced from vision is kind of just taking blind action.” - Steph Crowder
