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?

    Gina Knox: From a $200 Side Hustle to a $324K Launch

    A financial coach with a background in interaction design, Gina Knox teaches entrepreneurs how to save $100k and then build seven-figure wealth portfolios.
     
    Her motto: “Wealth building is for everyone.” 
     
    She joins me today to share the behind the scenes of building her business, including how she went from a $200 year to making $324,000 in one single launch. 
     
    She also gives us a very generous free masterclass on her unique financial frameworks that have saved her clients over seven million dollars. 
     
    Note: This is an episode where you definitely want to take notes. 
     
    This Week on the Get Paid Podcast:
    Why Gina wouldn’t have to work for the next 13 years if she didn’t want to
    The three phases of financial independence 
    Letting go of certain things your business doesn’t need (right now)
    Prioritizing savings over immediate debt repayment
    Using “SOLVE” to figure out what problem you really need to invest in 
    Knowing when that investment is right or when it’s an emotional decision 
    The main three accounts small businesses should focus on (and why Gina doesn’t encourage “profit-first”)
    Having a clear cut owner’s pay no matter what every month 
    A big rebranding project in Gina’s future

    Is There Such Thing as Sending TOO Many Launch Emails?

    Is There Such Thing as Sending TOO Many Launch Emails?

    How many emails should you be sending during a launch? How do you decide? 
     
    Today is one part rant and another part my sincere advice from experience, all to help you find the right balance. 
     
    If you’re worried about sending your list too many messages, but also want to bump up those sales, this episode is for you. I’m going to tell you what we’ve been doing on our team and why it works so well for me. 
     
    This Week on the Get Paid Podcast:
    Whether or not you should worry about sending too many emails during a launch
    What happens when we more than doubled the amount of emails we send
    My opinion on taking too much advice from others
    Embracing the unsubscribe button and filtering your emails
    Should you give your list a chance to opt out of launch emails?

    Internal Debate: Did I make a Huge Business Mistake?

    Internal Debate: Did I make a Huge Business Mistake?

    I’ve made a lot of decisions in my business that, upon reflection, I’m not always sure I’d do again. 
     
    But, this particular choice really has me thinking. It might be one of my biggest regrets. 
     
    That is…raising my prices too soon. 
     
    It's not necessarily the choice, but the hastiness and motivation behind price changes. The lesson here is to discern whether you're actually initiating a new strategy or reacting to your unresolved money and selling fears. 
     
    It was a combination for me. So, I’m laying it all out there today to tell you my exact thoughts, as of today, and what I plan on doing going forward. 
     
    This Week on the Get Paid Podcast:
    The original pricing of Absolute FB Ads and why it was so low
    Why I went through so many price points and what I think about it now
    When pricing is and is not a strategy - and often there’s more to look at before you make big changes
    Learning to take the entire context of your launch and audience building into account before making big decisions 
    Why we should be collecting case studies like yesterday
    Why I’m still happy with my current prices and what it took to get there

    Hey Business Coaches: Stop Giving This Advice

    Hey Business Coaches: Stop Giving This Advice

    This is my open letter to business coaches. 
    There’s some (perhaps well-meaning) advice too many coaches give to their clients. 
    I know the intention is to reduce risk for your clients. But, most of the time, you’re setting them up for slower, more painful business growth. 
    Today, I want to tell you exactly why you need to stop telling clients to wait until their business is bigger before they run ads. 
     
    This Week on the Get Paid Podcast:
    Why I’m mad at business coaches (and, yes, I still I love you) 
    You can’t learn what works without this one crucial ingredient 
    Some of you are accidentally setting your clients up for failure
    Why ads are often less risky than relying on an organic model for growth
    Organic social media marketing isn’t enough (or even that effective anymore) to help us learn about and improve our messaging 
    What really goes into ads for businesses at an earlier stage (and with a smaller budget)

LOVED the episode with Charlotte the farming coach! I love how Claire doesn't shy away from talking about the profit, and reality of money. A conversation we all need to be having. Claire provides real, specific advice and I always walk away learning something of value.
