The Bizgnus Podcast: Kara Goldin

22 minutes

•  How a “mompreneuer” took an idea from her kitchen to a nationwide business

•  “Don’t put walls up in front of yourselves that prevent you from ultimately getting out there and doing it”

(Total Recorded Time is 31:47)


What was coming out of her tap in her home kitchen didn’t exactly thrill Kara Goldin.  Nor did diet soda because the weight never seemed to leave.

Then the idea:  unsweetened water with just a hint of fruit taste.

What started as something she made in her kitchen for family and a few friends has turned into a business that now spans 50 states and beyond.

To do it, Ms. Goldin had to invent a new product, find customers who didn’t know they needed it, and overcome other challenges including doubters inside the beverage industry as well as the typical doubts that bounce in the heads of every entrepreneur.

Kara Goldin, inventor of the “Hint” favored water brand joins us on this Bizgnus podcast.
