12 Nov Kara Goldin: Stay Curious. Be Unstoppable!
Kara Goldin is my guest today. As many of you know, Kara is the CEO and founder of HINT Water. She’s also the author of a bestselling brand new book called, “Undaunted – Overcoming Doubts and Doubters.” In the book… she tells the story of how she defied the odds and her own fears to start and build HINT, which is the fastest-growing flavored water brand in America.
By the way, she didn’t have elite credentials. She didn’t have insider knowledge. She didn’t have high-level connections in the industry. Oh… and by the way… as she was starting HINT was pregnant with her 4th kid. Surprise!!! But… as you’ll hear… whenever she faced an obstacle, she wouldn’t give up… she kept moving forward… she was undaunted. And that’s what she wants for you too! It’s an amazing story… and I can’t wait to dive into it.
