The Cauldron Of Competition

Dream 10X Blog Maintaining some semblance of personal physical fitness is a goal most of us shoot for, either out of a simple desire to look and feel better about ourselves, or because our longevity literally depends on losing weight and/or improving our cardiovascular fitness.

Rowing From Lima, Peru to Alexandria, Virginia

Dream 10X Blog In this our 52nd episode, we talk to entrepreneur and rowing coach, Jaime Rubini, who has had a tremendous impact on many high school and adult aged rowers in Alexandria, Virginia. Jaime's positive impact on his community has not stopped at his rowing coaching career, however. He is also the proprietor of family owned and operated, 'Rubini Jewelers', in Old Town, Alexandria, where many people, including Cindy and I, have received warm, friendly service buying wedding rings (thanks, Joanna!) and other types of jewelry (including rowing jewelry, of course!).

The Founders

Dream 10X Blog I have had the privilege of helping to grow several small companies in my career. Helping small companies achieve rapid growth as an employee is hard, but nowhere near as hard as trying to grow a company from the ground up, on your own. Now, I am attempting to start and grow my own software company at Just over a month into this exercise, I can tell you it is a terrifying experience. It's also a bit of a high-stakes gamble, where the upside can be significant (and let's just not think about the potential downsides). These sentiments are echoed in Jimmy Soni's recent book about the creation of PayPal: 'The Founders'. Here are our Top 5 takeaways from this extremely thorough and well-researched book. Read More ›
