Kara Goldin is an inspiration. In her new book, “Undaunted,” she gives people the courage to own their dreams and move past their fears. After cooking up a massive beverage business in her kitchen, Kara was called “fearless” and “unstoppable” by those around her—even though she felt far from it on the inside. She shares the stories of her own doubts and fears, the challenges she faced along the way, and how she overcame them. Her advice in short: be undaunted.
