044 - How to Build a Blog from Scratch to a 6-Figure Business with Kate Kordsmeier


This week, I talked to Kate Kordsmeier, writer, educator, and creative entrepreneur.

For nearly a decade, Kate was a full-time, freelance journalist for over 125 magazines, newspapers and websites, including USA Today, EatingWell, Cooking Light, Travel + Leisure, The Washington Post, Forbes, Esquire, Women’s Health, Clean Eating, Wine Enthusiast, SELF and Real Simple. She’s also the author of the cookbook Atlanta Chef’s Table: Extraordinary Recipes from the Big Peach.

In October 2015, after being diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), Leaky Gut Syndrome (IBS), and hypothyroidism, and subsequently healing her symptoms naturally, Kate created Root + Revel, a holistic wellness blog with a focus on true mind-body-soul health.

After turning the blog into a profitable, six-figure business, Kate started getting questions from people nearly daily about how she did it. So she started The Six-Figure Blog Academy, her digital course where Kate empowers her students with actionable advice and inspirational content to help them make their dreams of being their own boss a reality. 

We talked about Kate’s journey from journalist to blogger to running her 6-figure business, the tactics and strategies, and more interestingly, the money mindsets needed to grow your business and income.
