My guest this episode Kara Goldin, is the CEO and founder of Hint, Inc., a healthy lifestyle brand based in the United States, in San Francisco, California.
Kara is a textbook disruptor.
Although she never intended to be an entrepreneur, she has become just that. On a quest to improve her own health, Kara was struck with the realization that her go-to beverage, was holding her back. This realization triggered an avalanche of ideas. Kara had identified how to improve her health and she charted a mission to do the same for others.
Today Hint water is the number one flavored water in the U.S., generating more than $150 million in revenue / year.
Kara started her career in sales at Time Magazine and CNN. She moved to AOL, where she served as the VP for E-Commerce and Shopping. In 2005, she founded Hint, Inc. At the time unsweetened flavored water wasn’t a thing. But that’s what disruption looks like–––you play where no one else is playing – and Kara does this so well.
Kara has been widely recognized as a leading entrepreneur, being named one of Fast Company’s Most Creative People in Business; Fortune Magazine’s Most Powerful Women Entrepreneurs, was selected as the EY Entrepreneur of the Year for Northern California. And she has a new book titled Undaunted: Overcoming Doubts and Doubters.
Join us as Kara shares fascinating stories about her path to becoming an unexpected entrepreneur.
