Podcast - Business Tips From a Five Figure Food Blogger

On this episode of the SPQ Chat we hear from Kate Kordsmeier, a professional journalist turned real food blogger and Founder of the blog Root + Revel who is at the top of her game as a professional blogger and influencer on track to make six figures and she’s detailing how via monthly income reports. Her journey has taken so many exciting twists and turns and she shares it all with us as well as what she’s learned from working as a copywriter for Neiman Marcus only to quit and freelance as a journalist traveling to beautiful countries like France eating the finest cuisine. Once Kate decided to quit she was able to double her income that she was making at Neiman’s within six months. Kate speaks candidly about the changes that happened in her life to get to this point, her tips for making it as a profitable blogger and she shares her personal experiences with putting herself first. This conversation is a great real life spinoff of the topics covered in Brittany Hennessy’s book Influencer: Building Your Personal Brand in the Age of Social Media.

What we’re talking about:

  • Following your gut and making a transition early in a career

  • How she became a real food blogger

  • Tips for sales

  • How to find the right person for a brand pitch

  • The inside scoop on running a profit generating blog

  • Her monthly income reports

  • Using the Five Minute Journal

In this episode I mention my family getaway in the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander SEL.
