Publisher's Summary

Wall Street Journal number one best-selling business book

Don’t let anyone crush your dreams! Whatever you want to achieve, no matter how hard it might seem, you owe it to yourself to listen to this audiobook.

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.

Author Kara Goldin turned her unsweetened flavored water into one of the most successful beverage businesses of our time and 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 Entrepreneur of the Year for Northern California.

Undaunted is a rare opportunity to gain insights and proven advice unlike anything you’ll find in the conventional business press. Kara combines real, honest stories from her life with observations that might just change how you think about your own.

Whether you want to get healthy, start a company, break an addiction, find a new career, or just grow in life, Undaunted will inspire you to just go for it and help you find the courage to get there.

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.

Her secret? Be undaunted.

Deal with your fears. Move forward despite uncertainty. Turn criticism into motivation. Just go for it! Setbacks will come, but Kara shows you can learn from failures and frustrations and keep advancing toward your true purpose. What if not having “the right” credentials or vast industry experience was the secret to making things happen?

And what if we didn’t let our fear of failure stop us?

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, Undaunted 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. But 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

"Kara Goldin is an unstoppable force. Not because she lacks fear, but because she moves forward despite her fear and perseveres in the face of challenges. I'm buying Undaunted for my kids because I want them to see that with the right attitude and a lot of work, they can handle whatever life throws their way. What a great book for these unsettling times!" (Jenny Johnson, CEO, Franklin Templeton Investments)

"'Grit and resourcefulness define the best founders I've known and that's why I was the first investor in Hint and their biggest cheerleader throughout the company's amazing story. Read Undaunted and you'll be inspired by Kara Goldin to discover within yourself the intensity and determination that are the primary requirements for success." (Geoff Ralston, president, Y Combinator) 

"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)

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.

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.

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.

Inspiring

Whilst Kara is extremely inspirational, and I really enjoyed listening and at times I felt the book provoking me and motivating me, there were a couple of times where I felt the story dragged on a little. It was basically obstacle after obstacle and how she got through it which is fantastic but a little repetitive in that respect... But what an amazingly driven woman and very supportive husband. Well done to them
