Why quitting social media could be the best move you can make to scale your business with Kate Kordsmeier.

I want you to take a moment to imagine what your life and business would look like if you decided to completely quit social media. No more endless scrolling on TikTok or marketing on Instagram – would you still thrive? Well, guess what? My guest today, the fabulous Kate Kordsmeier, actually quit social media in 2021 and saw her business grow by a whopping 165%. It is possible, my friend! 

Now, if you know me, you know that I have a love-hate relationship with social media. There are things about it that I don't particularly like, but I also see the many benefits it brings to my business. So, today's conversation was both uncomfortable and super eye-opening for me! 

Kate is an entrepreneur and the CEO of an online business called “Success With Soul,” where she helps women become entrepreneurs without the burnout. And today, she's here to encourage you to reframe how you connect, market, and scale your businesses in the digital age. She opens up about why she permanently logged off socials, how you can determine if it's the right move for you, and shares strategies for growing your business, email list, and creativity without being so reliant on social media. 

You became an entrepreneur because you wanted to live life on your terms. So, if you've ever felt tied down to your Instagram, questioned the ROI from Facebook, or simply don’t find joy in using social media, listen in because this episode might just be the wake-up call you never knew you needed!
