Ever wonder what a day in the life is like for an Online Life Coach? Now’s your chance!
Kali Rogers of Blush Online Life Coaching was one of my first business BFFs and now good friend and client.
Kali’s story of how she started her business is so inspiring to me and I love her witty personality and generous demeanor. She’s helped me have a lot of business breakthroughs and I feel so fortunate to call her a friend.
In addition to chatting about how she started Blush, we of course chat about a typical day in her life. She doesn’t stick to the traditional entrepreneur mindset of getting up at 5 am, which is a refreshing revelation as many people assume to run a successful business you have to be a morning person.
Excited for you to tune in and hope you enjoy!

- Why she’s not a morning person and why she gave up coffee for good.
- How Blush came to be and how she pitched herself to a big company (and failed).
- How Blush works and who it’s for.
- What Kali thinks people misconceive about being a life coach.
- What the difference between life coaching and counseling is and the stigmas behind each.
- Why Kali hates having her day completely planned out ahead of time and why setting intentions work best for her.
- Why Kali doesn’t formally “exercise” and walks instead.
