From burnout to making over six figures blogging. Meet Kate Kordsmeier.

From burnout to making over six figures blogging. We’re not kidding! Meet Kate Kordsmeier

The Lola member, Kate Kordsmeier has always had a strong north star, followed her passions and lived life on her own terms. However, even the most intuitive of us sometimes need a reset. Kate decided the traditional corporate track was not for her early in her career, instead, she paved her path as a freelance journalist. After traveling the globe for more than a decade, eating in the world’s best restaurants and writing about her love of food, she hit a wall, hard. Learn how Kate switched gears and created a six-figure blogging business in less than three years. No glass ceilings here!


Kate Kordsmeier

Location: Atlanta, GA

Age: 30 years

What I do: CEO and Founder of The Six-Figure Blog Academy




Tell us about yourself:

live in Atlanta with my husband, Matt, our kiddos, Jackson and Gemma, and our 3 fur babies, Scout, Boo, and Finch (yes, like the book!). I’m a Libra, an Enneagram 3w2 (that’s code for overachiever…I’m working on it), an INTJ, a Questioner, a Generator, an outgoing introvert, a bookworm, information addict, sushi fiend, animal lover, an OCD planner and an entrepreneur down to my bones.

How did you land upon your professional path?

For nearly a decade, I 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. I’m 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 my symptoms naturally, I created Root + Revel, a holistic wellness blog with a focus on true mind-body-soul health.

After turning the blog into a profitable, multi-six-figure business, I started getting questions from people nearly daily about how I did it. So I started writing Income Reports to show people that, yes, you can actually make money blogging.

And so The Six-Figure Blog Academy was born. 6FBA is my digital course where I empower my students with actionable advice and inspirational content to help them make their dreams of being their own boss a reality. It’s the exact, step-by-step system I used to grow Root + Revel into a six-figure business in just three years.

I now have another course, 21 Days to Impact, a podcast, Success with Soul, and a forthcoming group coaching program: the Success with Soul Incubator.

How do you define success for yourself?

I’ve been self-employed for over 10 years now, and while taking strategic action is important, mindset is perhaps the most integral part of a successful business. Success for this heart-centered entrepreneur is when I’m making an impact and revenue, without sacrificing relationships and mindfulness, spirituality and my health.

When I am truly working from a place of rest, not hustle, and have time with my family, taking care of the one body I’ve been given, and helping others, above any profits, fame, or fortune, I feel I have found true, sustainable success as an online entrepreneur.
