How does someone launch a $200 million beverage company with zero experience and four children under the age of six? Just ask super-mom, author, and Hint Water empire CEO and Founder, Kara Goldin.

Goldin was first inspired to launch her beverage company as an alternative to other unhealthy drinks on the market. Not only did Goldin manage to build a company that is now the largest privately owned non-alcoholic beverage company in America, but she placed Hint on the shelves of her local Whole Foods on the same day she went into the delivery room.

Revealing all of the ups and downs of her journey in her new book, Undaunted: Overcoming Doubt And Doubters, Goldin speaks to Foundr’s Nathan Chan about relentless pursuit of your dreams, and overcoming fears and self-doubt along the way. Key Takeaways

  • How Kara Goldin first began her mission of creating a healthier option for drinking water
  • Facing challenges everyday, and Goldin’s commitment to learning all she could about an entirely new industry
  • Why Goldin believes the best thing anyone can do for themselves is continue to learn and grow
  • Dealing with naysayers and doubters, and how Goldin decided to instead use their feedback to hone her business vision
