#93: Building an Empire with Kara Goldin, CEO of Hint

Want a Hint on how to start your own business?!


In this episode, we are chatting with Kara Goldin, CEO and founder of Hint Inc., the leading unsweetened flavored water, as well as author of the book, Undaunted. Kara has been named one of InStyle’s Badass 50, Fast Company’s Most Creative People in Business, Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Entrepreneurs and EY’s Entrepreneur of the Year 2017 Northern California.


In this week’s episode, we’ll cover Kara’s beginnings at Time Inc. in circulation, how she was able to get 90+ interviews right after college, and how to stand out in your job. We’ll then dive deeper into why Kara decided to start Hint, her business philosophy of ‘building the airplane as you fly it,’ and why you shouldn’t put all of your energy into worrying about outcomes.
