Hi there!

I live in Atlanta with my husband, Matt, our kiddos, Jackson and Gemma, and our 2 fur babies, Scout and Boo (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.

I’m Kate Kordsmeier, a working mom, writer, educator, coach and creative entrepreneur.

Though my first digital course, 6FBA (the exact, step-by-step system I used to grow Root + Revel into a valuable asset I later sold for multiple six-figures) was successful, that's not the whole picture.

Let me be clear: mine isn’t an overnight success story with a “six-figure launch!” on my first try. Nor do we help our clients create momentary success. We are in this for the long haul, creating a business that can stand the test of time, leaving a legacy, and creating a future. 

It is my mission to revolutionize the way women live and work by supporting them to build highly profitable, soul-aligned and hands-off online businesses without burning out so they can reclaim their lives, and create massive wealth, power and freedom. 

I should know. While I've made over $1.7 million from my blog, courses and coaching programs, I've also had 2 babies (and taken 6 months of paid self-employed maternity leave), dealt with chronic health conditions and crippling anxiety and panic attacks, taken so many weeks of vacation, created incredible friendships and memories, and experienced more joy, freedom and fulfillment than I ever thought possible.  

USA Today, Travel + Leisure, The Washington Post, Forbes, Esquire, Conde Nast Traveler, 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) and hypothyroidism, I created Root + Revel, a holistic wellness blog with a focus on true mind-body-soul wellbeing, no dieting required! 

After turning the blog into a profitable, purpose-filled business, I started getting questions from people nearly daily about how I did it. And so the Six-Figure Blog Academy (6FBA) was born. 

For nearly a decade, I was a full-time, freelance journalist for over 125 magazines, newspapers and websites, including...

This is not an overnight success story!

How’d we get here?

It’s been A JOURNEY

Ditched corporate cube life after 4 months and became a freelance journalist with bylines in over 125 magazines, where it was literally my job to travel the world and report on the most delicious foods, hottest restaurants and happenings. Talk about a dream job--getting paid to eat and travel!


 Started a holistic wellness blog, Root + Revel, after being diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) and hypothyroidism to share my story and help others find
true mind-body-soul wellbeing.


Welcomed my first child into the world and took a 4-month paid maternity leave (something I never thought possible as a self-employed entrepreneur). Made $58,000 while not working, snuggling my newborn and healing. 


Launched the Six-Figure Blog Academy, a digital course teaching the exact, step-by-step system I used to grow Root + Revel into a six-figure business in just three years. 


The Success with Soul Podcast was born, 1 month before my 2nd child made her debut (and I made $135,000 on this maternity leave thanks to my evergreen funnel for 6FBA)! 

Launched 21 Days to Impact, my second online course, after seeing a need to simplify the tech side of creating + launching a website, blog and online business. 


Launched the Success with Soul Incubator, retired 21 Days to Impact and 6FBA, and I sold my blog, Root + Revel, for multiple six figures. Also quit social media in November 2021 (have never been back on it since!)


Got certified as an ICF-accredited Life + Success coach by the Quantum Coaching Academy, with additional certifications in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Clinical Hypnotherapy, Reiki, Emotional Freedom Technique, and the TIME Technique. 


Closed the Incubator and launched the Mindful Business Academy: Your Social-Free Path to Six-Figures+ and a $9/month membership called the Launch Lab: Your First $10k, YOUR Way. Still no social media!

OUR values

Who we are and what we care about?

Who we are and what we care about?

We Are Ambitious, Growth-Oriented Achievers.

We are a team of doers and creators who are always striving for extraordinary results and are super hungry for achievement and success. Both individually, and more importantly, as a collective. We each see the company’s success as a whole as our individual success. And we are fully, 100% committed and dedicated to making shit happen. We’re resourceful, always willing to jump in and help wherever needed. No matter what, we find a way with out-of-the-box thinking and a scrappiness to get the job done. We are a team of “intrapreneurs” who have the freedom and flexibility to love what we do and be the best at our roles.

We Actually Care.

Because we are always showing up as our fullest, truest selves, working in alignment with our soul’s purpose, and encouraging our community to do the same, we are very unlike cut-throat, bro-marketing businesses. We see leads as actual human beings. We put love over metrics. And we always do the right thing, providing the very best customer experience possible, always looking for new ways to surprise and delight our clients. We have built-in internal motivation and accountability to ourselves, the team, and those we serve. We do what we say we’re going to do and follow-through. We are women of our word and we walk the talk. We talk with radical candor, by caring personally and challenging directly in open dialogue with respect, honesty, and empathy. We receive feedback graciously and are never defensive, but aren’t afraid to give tough love when needed. We’re assertive and direct, no bullshit, no beating around the bush.

We make mistakes.

We believe the fastest path to success is failure. Imperfect action is needed to grow and learn and evolve. Mistakes are the compost that our business needs to thrive. Mistakes are expected, encouraged and celebrated because it means we are one step closer to who we are meant to be. AND we take radical responsibility and complete ownership when we fuck up. We are not afraid to apologize and admit when we were wrong. AND we don’t beat ourselves up when it happens.

We Are Always Learning.

Continuous self-improvement for both professional and personal development is at the forefront of everything we do. We take courses, read books, listen to podcasts, attend conferences and do what it takes to always be learning new skills and improving ourselves. When we don’t know the answer to something, we go out and find it. We invest in ourselves, we seek out teachers who have done what we want to do, and we share what we’ve learned within the team so all can benefit.

We are Boundary-Pushing Confident Badasses who Ask Why Not Us?

We dream big and don’t let fear hold us back. We ask for what we want because we know the answer is always no until we ask. We work through our imposter syndrome, we recognize all potential partnerships are just other human beings, and the worst that could happen is a “not right now”. We are a positive inspiration to our community, always lifting people up, first by believing in what we do so strongly and the results we know our framework can get people and then by believing our students have what it takes.

We Take Care of Ourselves.

Self-care, rest, and play are the cornerstones of our company culture (no burnout!). While we work hard, we strive to always work smarter, to do less in order to achieve more. “The more we relax, the more money we make,” is our motto. Followed by “How can we let this be easy?” When in doubt, do less and keep it simple. After we’ve worked hard, we rest just as hard. We build naps and nature walks and snuggles with our kids/fur babies into our work day. We make time for physical, emotional and spiritual healing, with chiropractic, acupuncture, counseling, meditation, journaling, prayer, movement, and embodiment practices. We are healers, leading by example.

We Leave the World a Better Place.

With an ardent commitment to Mother Earth, we spend time in nature and employ regenerative, circular and cyclical living practices both in our personal lives and within our business because Science is Real. We are here to contribute to the progression of our society with a focus on diversity, equity and inclusion as we honor and welcome, with respect and love, those who look and think differently than us. We celebrate our innate uniqueness, inviting all different races, ethnicities, backgrounds, orientations, ages, religions, body sizes and shapes, and abilities into our communities and onto our team, as we care deeply about including diverse perspectives and experiences. We strive to amplify marginalized voices, to be an ally to our BIPOC and LGBTQ+ brothers and sisters, and to bring power and freedom to ALL women everywhere! We give back to our communities and support small businesses.
