Publisher's summary

Don’t let anyone crush your dreams. Undaunted will inspire you to move past your fears and defy the doubters. It doesn’t matter whether you feel confident; it matters what you actually do.

A Wall Street Journal best seller!

CEO of Hint, Inc., and author Kara Goldin turned her unsweetened flavored water into one of the most successful beverage businesses of our time. As she started to achieve her goals, Kara found herself being called “fearless”, “confident” and even “unstoppable”, but nothing could be further from the truth.

In Undaunted, she shares real stories about her own fears and doubts, the challenges she encountered and what she did to overcome them to eventually build a great business and a life she loves.

This book is perfect for anyone who wants to:

  • Get fit and healthy,
  • Start a company or business,
  • Break an addiction,
  • Find a new career,
  • Just grow in life, and much more!

Part autobiography, part business memoir and lots of insights on self-development, Undaunted offers inspiring stories that impart lessons that any listener can apply to their own path. While most motivational business and life books try to offer quick fixes, Kara focuses on long-term success, showing you how to take control of breaking down barriers and moving forward.

Undaunted won’t solve your problems and challenges, you will. However, it will help you see through other’s experiences that it’s possible to do so. Accept your fears, but decide to be undaunted.

Critic reviews

"What would you do if you weren't afraid?' I've asked myself and others that question many times. Kara Goldin didn't let fear hold her back from chasing her ambitions. Undaunted is the story of how she persisted to achieve her dream of starting a company. It's a great read for any entrepreneur looking for proof that her dream, too, can come true." -- Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook and founder of LeanIn.Org

"'Undaunted is a lively account of how Kara Goldin took incredible risks and overcame huge challenges in founding Hint, which is the story of many great American businesses. She reveals how Hint water could have just been another idea that never went anywhere, if she had let her own doubts or the doubts of others be the end of the story. For anyone who has ever questioned whether it is worth taking a chance and pursuing their dreams, this is a must read." -- Jamie Dimon, Chairman and CEO of JPMorgan Chase

"Kara's story shows that bravery is just deciding to move forward despite your fear. That if you have the courage to change what you see as wrong, no matter how big the obstacles may be, it can be done. Whether you're starting a business or hoping to make a change in your life, you'll find inspiration inside Undaunted. Read it." -- John Legend, Grammy and Academy Award-winning singer-songwriter

Empowering and sweet story.

Kara made laugh and cry with her story I could relate so much about the challenges and wins when you run your own business. She inspires me to keep chasing my dreams. You won’t regret listening and the fact that she’s the one telling her story made it more special for me.

Really Great Story of an Entrepreneur!

Even though I was given this book to read I wanted to hear Kara voice it instead of reading. I’m so glad I did. Kara’s story is a good lesson in following your gut and passion and not giving up. It’s inspiration and not sappy, and anyone would benefit from reading it- even if you’re not an entrepreneur.

Amazing book! Well told story

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, before reading it I had only seen hint a couple of times but never bought it or tasted it, by the time I was done with this book I was actively searching for a bottle of hint water and hint sunscreen.

Inspiring to keep moving forward.

For the past couple of years I have been in a transitional phase of my bakery business. Even though I had a small store front, I kept dreaming of a doing more and wanting to grow in certain areas of my business and Kara’s book Undaunted encouraged me to keep propelling forward.
I never considered myself an entrepreneur so I struggled with imposter syndrome or uncertainty about what my role as a business owner/starter should look like.
Kara’s book and her podcast just helped to bring me back to what I love to do, my passion and what I want my beams to look like. Go with my gut and just keep pushing past my limitations and everyone else’s limitations. I wholeheartedly would recommend this book to everyone but especially for females who are striving to live out their life’s purpose.

Authentic and Inspiring

I purchased this book for my daughter. However, while on vacation, I started listening and am so glad I did. It started with the narrator - Kara. I was glad to hear her tell the story. It made it more personal. Her lessons were simple and impactful. Her tenacity and confidence are inspiring. I loved that she created her path. Once on it, many doors and opportunities presented themselves. That’s how it is supposed to work. This should be a must read for all of the uncertain or confused college kids out there.

Great book by a great leader!

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Kara on project and I started listening to her book during the execution of the project and her advice and stories validated many of the feelings I was experience. Phenomenal and inspirational story for those second guessing themselves.
