Our small but mighty team is growing once again and we can’t wait to have you join us as our Content Manager! Interested? Keep reading!
KateKordsmeier.com (KK) is a rapidly growing business that empowers their women with actionable advice and inspirational content to create purpose-driven, profitable online businesses without burning out/overworking so they can truly enjoy their lives and find power and freedom.
There’s a blog component, a podcast (Success with Soul) and two online courses, 21 Days to Impact and the Six Figure Blog Academy, and a group coaching program, The Success with Soul Accelerator. KK also has a sister company, Root + Revel, a holistic wellness blog. Our team works cross-functionally between all of these.
We are looking for a Content Manager to help us create (research, write, and edit) podcast content, email content, blog content, social media content and paid training course content. The number one goal of this position is to turn our customers’ and potential customers’ biggest challenges and obstacles into actionable solutions that will lead them to experience massive success.
This role is an integrated, core function of our team. While some online business knowledge of sales pages and email funnels and experience is preferred, we are less interested in what skills you have (as we can train you and provide you with further education) and much more interested in finding someone who is a natural born writer with a bold, edgy yet soulful vibe to match with Kate’s style.
Even more important: you must be super hungry for success, eager to grow into an integral part of our team, and incredibly proactive, taking initiative and full of ambition, drive and enthusiasm for the job.

Team R+R Perks
Did we forget to mention all of Team KK’s perks? While we strive to always work from a place of rest, we are RAPIDLY growing with a goal of hitting 7 figures (as in $1 million dollars in revenue!) by 2021. But we can’t do it without you! Our small but mighty team is full of talented and motivated individuals who actually enjoy going to work every day. But these awesome perks and benefits help just a little too:
Competitive compensation with room to grow, bonus commissions, profit sharing and annual raises based on performance
Complete autonomy–I don’t care when, where or how you work, so long as you get the job done and respond to team messages during the day.
Forget the traditional corporate culture. Kate only lasted 4 months in it for a reason, and Team KK’s culture couldn’t be more opposite–no micro-managing, no “working” just to look busy, no clocking in and out, no asking for time off to go to a doctor’s appointment or pick your kid up from school or have a personal life. No need to apologize or ask permission. I don’t even need to know the details! I’m not paying for seat warmers. There is no such thing as being late to work (although there is such a thing as missing deadlines). You’re not a child who needs to be watched and constantly told what to do. You choose how you get your work done. Your time is yours, so long as the work gets done and the clients are happy.
A group of co-workers that’s more like a family–we really like each other and talk often about so much more than just work. We are here to support each other and often get together in-person, whether it’s for happy hours, team trips or a friendly phone call or video chat. We even take professional and personal development courses together, attend conferences and workshops together and prioritize learning and genuine connection. We like to work hard and play hard!
While taking care of business, we like to take care of our community and the environment too! Kate will match up to $500 per year of any monetary donations you make to charity.
Full-time employees receive Health Benefits, 401k matching, 2 weeks paid vacation, plus 9 paid holidays, and more after 90 days
To apply, please email Kate at hi[at]katekordsmeier.com with “BOLD ABUNDANCE” in the subject line (so we know you’re paying attention). In your email, please include the following:
