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.

How does a fiction author make a living? When it comes to finding an agent, working with editors, and getting paid, Stephanie Feldman, author of Saturnalia and The Angel of Losses, is an open book about the good, the bad, and the honestly confusing side of publishing. She shows us just how much “rejection is not personal” matters when it comes to getting your work out into the world. And that perseverance to navigate an often harsh industry has resulted in two published novels, being the co-editor of the multi-genre anthology Who Will Speak for America? and her stories and essays appearing in Asimov’s Science Fiction, Catapult Magazine, Electric Literature, The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, The Rumpus, and Vol. 1 Brooklyn
