Make The Most of Every Day and Be Undaunted with Kara Goldin, Founder & CEO, Hint, Inc.

There are moments in our lives, when our belief in what is possible intersects with the unknown and we have to make a choice on which path to take. Embracing new opportunities can feel scary at times and we can feel frozen with fear, afraid to move forward. In this week’s HerCsuite™ Radio interview with Kara Goldin, Founder and CEO of Hint, Inc. we discover how to not let fear be thing that stop us.

Kara built her career by opening her own doors. Starting with her first job after graduating from college to becoming the CEO of Hint, Inc., she shares how she overcame ‘doubts, doubters' and remained ‘undaunted’.

You are invited to listen to this very special interview with Kara Goldin, where she shares how solving challenges along her career path was the inspiration behind hint water.

Highlights from the Interview:

Make the Most of Every Day

  • Don’t be afraid to educate people at all levels about your organization.
  • Show how human you are, build a relationships, people will remember you.
  • Ask yourself “what is the worst thing that can happen?” and seize every opportunity even if the outcome isn’t exactly what you expected.

Reach Out – Pick Up the Phone

  • Stand out by calling a person instead of emailing or texting.
  • You have to know your story, before making a call to share who you are and what you do.
  • Send a hand-written letter as a thank you note.
  • If you admire someone, learn as much as you can and share your knowledge about them. It will make you unique.

How to Keep Going

  • Try in any situation, when something doesn’t go the way you think it would, to “always give the best you can”.
  • “When you fear something…you freeze.” Look for ways to get out of an unexpected situation.
  • Watch and observe when the doors are going to be open. Be ready to walk through them.
  • Ask yourself-‘what have I learned?’ after an unexpected situation didn't turn out the way you imagined.
  • Recognize even if something ends, there is a lot of good that can come out of it.
