High Touch Service in No-Touch Times with Elaine Lou Cartas

I’m so excited to introduce you to Kate Kordsmeier, founder of Root and Revel, and the Six-Figure Blog Academy. She’s also one of my mastermind sisters! 

Kate was a freelance journalist who wrote for some of the top names in media today. She left her full-time career to become a blogger and created a six-figure blog within three years. 

She now has a digital course that teaches people how to create the businesses of their dreams through blogging, and I can’t wait for you to learn how you can add another income stream to your own business with a blog.

Listen to hear some of Kate’s best tips and insights about blogging for profit, including: 


  • [03:28] Why Kate snubbed the idea of blogging initially, and what finally prompted her from being a journalist to becoming a blogger
  • [05:29] How much money Kate made her first year of blogging, and how much she made her second year, and what she makes now (the answer will shock you)
