May 12, 2022 • Entrepreneurship
Kara Goldin

Kara Goldin knows what it takes to build a business from scratch. She’s the founder of Hint, the leading unsweetened flavored water. Hint was inspired by Kara’s own health journey, when she kicked her diet soda habit by turning to fruit infused water. After discovering there was nothing like the fruit-flavored water on the market, she decided to make it herself. Kara is a former tech executive at AOL, host of the podcast The Kara Goldin Show and author of Undaunted. She’s been named one of Fast Company’s Most Creative People in Business and to Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Entrepreneurs list. On this episode, we talk about how to move forward despite uncertainty, turn criticism into motivation and create your own opportunities.
