This former tech exec couldn’t have predicted that her home experiment to make plain water less boring would quickly become one of the biggest disruptors of ‘diet culture’…
With zero experience in the beverage industry—and using her own health transformation + taste tests by parents in the local school’s drop-off lane—Kara Goldin developed the now $150M+ company Hint Inc. And I’m excited to have her back on #GlambitionRadio to catch up and celebrate her new book, ‘Undaunted’, which was just released!
Hint is a healthy lifestyle brand that produces the leading, award-winning, unsweetened flavored water, along with new, natural body care products including sunscreen and deodorant. And on today’s Glambition Radio, you’ll hear how Kara’s intrepid spirit all but guaranteed the tremendous market response to her products—much to the dismay of the traditional, ‘standard American diet’ status quo!
Kara’s numerous accolades include being named EY Entrepreneur of the Year 2017 Northern California, one of InStyle’s 2019 Badass 50, one of Fast Company’s Most Creative People in Business, and one of Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Entrepreneurs. The Huffington Post listed her as one of six disruptors in business, alongside Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg.
On this episode of #GlambitionRadio, you’ll hear:
- The major turning point that made Kara question her tech career… and ignite her desire to leave a lasting impact through her work. (Did you experience a similar realization on this fateful day?)
- How you can adopt Kara’s ‘undaunted’ attitude in your own endeavors… and why you shouldn’t let inexperience stop you from going after your dreams (never mind the naysayers!)
- Kara’s baffling dismissal by a top-level beverage exec when she offered to give him her company—and how these truths behind her mission shot Hint to the top of the industry!
- Why there’s power in accepting your past—and how to leverage failures and mistakes to propel you forward (you’ll hear how an ambitious trek through the Grand Canyon reminded Kara of her resilience…)
And I’m honored to share that Kara will be joining my new network, The Trust, at our upcoming Official Spring Meeting in Miami Beach as our Special Guest Advisor. Our members are in for a treat!
