Our conversation turns to her complete journey from going cold-turkey on diet Coca-Cola to her dislike of plain water, followed by her search for flavored water. That is, flavored water with no sugar added. Becoming an entrepreneur was not a plan, figuring out how to disrupt the beverage industry and create an unsweetened flavored water resulted in Hint® water.
Setbacks, fears, an impossible goal? Of course, but there was no stopping Kara. Undaunted, Kara has forged a path for future entrepreneurs who feel that simple couldn’t make it. And there’s more…sunscreen, deodorant, hand sanitizer and masks. All helping to put people on a path to healthier living.
