Six Figure Steps to Building a Profitable Blog

How do you earn six figures from building a profitable blog?

That’s what Kate Kordsmeier, founder of The Six-Figure Blog Academy, answers in this episode of UNTAPPED.

After working as a full-time, freelance journalist for almost 10 years, Kate decided to launch her very own blog, Root + Revel.

What started out as a way to share how she was naturally healing her symptoms for PCOS, Leaky Gut Syndrome, and hypothyroidism turned into a profitable, six-figure business.

Of course, once people saw how much success she was having with her blog (we’re talking over $100,000 in less than a year), Kate started to get a flood of messages asking what her secret was.

Thus, The Six-Figure Blog Academy was born.

As someone who’s built a business off her own humble blog when I started back in 2009, it was awesome to chat with Kate about our different experiences in monetizing our blogs.

In this episode, Kate and I talk about how she turned her humble blog into a full blown profitable business as well as her thoughts on what soulful business is and how having a holistic focus is the key to growing your business.

Tune in below to get the six-figure steps to building a profitable blog!

  • The six-figure steps to building a profitable blog
  • Why Kate thinks mindset is the most integral part of a successful business
  • How working from a place of rest instead of hustle can be the key to success

How to Plan Your Ideal Freedom Year in 2020

What does a napkin, an envelope, and a road trip have to do with planning your ideal freedom year?

Tune into this episode of Untapped to find out!

Last week, I took a road trip with Josh and the pups to Taupo, which is an absolutely amazing place to relax, take in some nature, and be able to do our Life Pilot Seasonal Dreaming session.

We spent a weekend dreaming and scheming about our life and where what goals we have for the next 3 months, 12 months and 3 years!

We did this planning and visioning while getting massages, soaking in the thermal pools, eating delicious meals, and just enjoying the breathtaking scenery at Taupo.

It was actually at our last Life Pilot session where I decided I wanted to do the half Ironman (or Iron Woman as I like to call it) hosted in Taupo next month….a 1.9km swim, 90km bike and 21km run – EEK!

This past weekend’s session was actually done on our road trip.

Mapping out your goals for 2020

Remember the napkin and envelope I mentioned at the beginning? This is where they come in.

When we decided to start planning, I just grabbed an envelope and pen and started writing down Josh and I’s goals for health, impact, and all the other categories included in our Life Pilot system.

When I had finished writing our relationship goals, I had run out of room on the envelope.

So, I grabbed a napkin and finished out our year goals for 2020.

What’s the point of all this?

The point is that taking a road trip might be the perfect way for you to clear your mind and just focus on reflecting on your past year and dreaming up all the things you want to accomplish in the next.

In this podcast episode, I give you some questions to answer that will help you think about what went well and what you hope will never happen again so that you can be able to see what it is you really want and need to do in 2020.

In this podcast you’ll learn:

  • How to reflect on your past year
  • How to plan your ideal year for 2020
  • How we turn out dreams into daily actions using Life Pilot
  • How to plan your ideal freedom year with me live this month!

If you don’t truly reflect in the year that was, you can’t truly step into the year that will be.

Luckily for you, I have something coming up that will help you map out your entire year for 2020 in under 2 hours.

That’s right, you heard me.

In under 2 hours!

Each year I host my Plan Your Ideal Freedom Year live workshop, and this year, it’s even better!

This is a 2 hour live workshop you don’t want to miss because I’ll help you map out your 2020 goals live, prioritize the most important things in your life, create your 1 Page Biz Plan and then your profitable content calendar!

Plus, you’ll get access to this workshop as a mini course for a whole entire year so that you don’t lose sight of your the goals that you’ve made.

This year, I’m also including the Life Pilot methodology, so really, you’re getting two awesome life planning tools in one!

There’s also another special reason for you to sign up.

For this year’s Plan Your Ideal Freedom Year workshop, I’ll be donating 50% of revenue to Hand Across the Water, which is a charity I’ll actually be cycling for next year in Thailand.

I’ll be cycling 100km each day for 5 days in a row in Thailand, and the destination will be Khao Lak, where I’ll actually get to meet the children that the funds raised go to.

So, if you’re ready to enter 2020 with crystal clear sight and you want to help support a life of choice for the kids in Thailand, then make sure to sign up for the Plan Your Ideal Freedom Year live workshop!
