    Hint Water’s CEO Kara Goldin

    What would you do if you weren’t afraid? 

    Kara Goldin left her VP job at AOL to launch Hint Water with one simple goal: Make water that tastes great.

    Were You Born Stupid, or...

    Were You Born Stupid, or...

    As a 20-year old college finance major, I had an amazing opportunity to work at a world-class financial service firm. When a successful adviser called asking me, “were you born stupid? Or have you just become stupid over time?” I was startled.

    Although the conversation rattled me as an intern, the reason I share this story is less about my hurt feelings or someone’s assessment of my intelligence, and much more about my manager's response and what it means for all of us today.

    Can You Give Belief, Encouragement + Love?

    Join me every Monday for a quick burst of inspiration on our Live Inspired Podcast Monday Moments segment.

    Today I share the profound impact my friend Rusty Keeley had on my life. He was encouragement when I needed a lift. Sage advice when I needed wisdom. A connector when I needed a new opportunity, a pat on the back when I needed approval and frequently a kick in the pants when I needed to take action, be brave and grow. In other words, over the past 15 years, Rusty has been my friend.

    People First, Success will Follow (Rusty Keeley)

    In my late twenties, I did not believe in myself.
    Before I realized I had a story worth sharing – or in the truth that we all have a story worth sharing – my longtime friend, Rusty Keeley, believed enough to invest in having me speak to his company. He was my first client, helping me launch my speaking career.

    Today, I'm grateful to share with you Rusty's generous heart, caring spirit + business intel that will inspire you to choose significance over success.

    Are you making assumptions? (Monday Moment ep. 295)

    Are you making assumptions? (Monday Moment ep. 295)

    Join me every Monday for a quick burst of inspiration on our Live Inspired Podcast Monday Moments segment.
    “Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in a while, or the light won’t come in.”― Isaac Asimov
    Our assumptions of others say far more about us than they do about the person or group of people we are judging.
    In a darkened marketplace with so much negativity and certainty of opinion, maybe living with a little more humility and acting a little less on assumptions will provide some desperately needed light.
