With Kara Goldin

Being a CEO and speaker is an enormous challenge and our guest embraces it fully!

Today Kara Goldin is an ultra successful business owner, author and speaker. On this edition of The Speaker Lab, she tells us how working with legendary organizations like CNN and Time magazine led her to create Hint, write her best-selling book Undaunted and become a sought-after keynote speaker.
