About today’s guest

Claire Pelletreau is a Facebook Ads expert and host of the Get Paid Podcast which is all about having honest money conversations with the top online business owners!

Starting an online business is by no means a walk in the park, and it’s easy to feel alone when you face failure or something not going the way you had hoped in business.

In this episode, we hope to show you that all the successful business owners you’ve been fan-girling over have actually gone through their fair share failures and challenges themselves!

Claire is sharing an honest year-by-year look at what’s been happening in her business and the good and the bad along the way.

We are chatting all things money and revenue streams, both in her business, and the businesses of the women that she interviews in her podcast (including rare insights into their top money-making strategies!)

A few highlights

It’s my goal to help as many go-getter girls just like yourself to ditch their 9-5 and get on with living their best life, and as it turns out, the iTunes Gods love reviews just as much as I love frozen margs.

Your review directly helps me to win over the iTunes Gods and get this show in front of more girls just like you!

So thanks in advance for leaving a review, I’m so grateful to you! (Oh and the girl sitting bored to tears at her desk right now currently planning her escape, she’s grateful to you too.)
