Hi Team...

Yesterday, I had an amazing chat with Kara Goldin, the founder of one of my favorite drink companies, HINT.

Hint is a flavored water with zero sugar and is as natural as it gets!

Kara Goldin started the company HINT, which is now valued at over $200 million because she wanted to get off of her addiction to Diet Coke and she was not into just drinking water!

It was truly an amazing story (which I will share the video later in the week) that had some great takeaways.

I asked her about following her passion....

She said this was not meant to even be a business- she just loved sharing her creation with others and helping them to live healthier... then, it became a business bigger than she ever dreamed of.

We talked about how many people today are worried about how they appear, the perception of their business, and how they do things because for the money- as opposed to doing what they love and letting that thing get wings!

Can you relate?

How often do you hold yourself back from doing things because of how it appears?

Or, maybe you think your idea is foolish to the eyes of others in your family or friend group.

Well, Kara is an example of what happens when you just "go for it!".....

If you can do what you love and get paid to do it, that is winning.

Do not underestimate a business that can make you $100k, $250k, $500k + doing what you love- that is a huge win.

When I talk to real leaders like this- that built their company with passion and focus on a cause and outcome (better health for others)... that is winning.

Now, I know some of you are not in business, but, we are actually all in business.

We are in the business of spreading a message no matter where we work or what we do.

Your company has a message....

If you align to it, spread it passionately.

You have a message....

If you are deeply connected to it, spread it passionately.

Look at what I do each day....

I spread this message through my writing each day with you....

As you go out and BUILD your life, career, and/or business, BUILD IT YOUR WAY.

Like Kara did.

Build it your way.

Do not wait for public approval or applause.

Just keep building.

You will be amazed at the end result.

Let's go!
