Kara Goldin, the founder and CEO of Hint Inc, did not let fear hold her back from chasing her ambitions. Her unwavering commitment to her passions and integrity have created a career that is incredibly inspiring and a career of example. Kara is a trailblazer as she saw the value of continuing to learn and be challenged both personally and professionally. She has never settled and has strived to push herself to learn and be challenged. After having three children, Goldin realized that she wanted to spend her time creating and living a healthy lifestyle. She had trouble losing the additional baby weight and came upon the realization that everything she was drinking was sugary, unhealthy, and artificially sweetened. Goldin then took this idea and launched Hint in 2005 in San Francisco as a healthy alternative to the sugary, artificially sweetened drinks she had been consuming. Hint Water is flavored solely with natural fruit. In the 16 years since its creation, Hint Water has become an asset of the break rooms of some of Silicon Valley’s highest-profile companies, including Google, Facebook and LinkedIn. Kara is now sharing her story and lessons with her new book Undaunted and shares her incredible insight with us today.
