Hi! I’m Kate Kordsmeier. I’m a writer, educator, creative entrepreneur. I live in Atlanta with my husband, Matt, our two kiddos, Jackson and Gemma, and our 3 fur babies, Scout, Boo, and Finch (yes, like the book!).
I left my flourishing freelance writing career (my byline has appeared in over 125 magazines) to start a holistic wellness blog, Root + Revel, which became a multi-six-figure business!
I now teach other heart-centered online entrepreneurs how to monetize their blog or online business with sustainable tactics – no burning out, no selling your soul – through my two courses The Six-Figure Blog Academy and 21 Days to Impact.
I am also the host of the Success with Soul podcast, and the group coaching program, the Success with Soul Incubator.

Born and raised in Arizona, I’ve grown-up with a strong affection for the simplicity of nature’s beauty and zero tolerance for anything below 70 degrees. From my dad I get my cheerful countenance, athletic aspirations and inquisitiveness, and from my mom, work ethic, communication skills and drive to constantly improve both myself and the community around me.
As an active adolescent volleyball player turned competitive bodybuilder, I cultivated an interest in nutrition younger than most. After being diagnosed with an eating disorder and being plagued with chronic illness, coupled with learning more about exercise, wellness and physiology, I stumbled upon my true love of CrossFit and Olympic Weightlifting.
These experiences gave me a opportunity to discover not only how food impacts performance and body composition, but overall quality of life. My time spent studyingjournalism and freelance writing lend itself to helping me easily convey concepts to those with no nutrition background.
My values are rooted in practicing gratitude and integrity, to always be kind and continuously learning, and live both passionately and balanced. I absolutely love helping people realize their health potential and reap its’ benefits. I believe my history and education lend me the opportunity to do just that, and I am very thankful for this platform.
