About Tom

I am a life-long learner, passionate about improving the quality of our lives. I either commit 110% to a project I believe in or I don't commit at all. Once committed, I put on any hat necessary to make things happen.

Relevant industries above are: "Education" and "Technology" ("Health, Fitness, and Wellness" is an item I cannot delete from the list - cofounderslab error)

Quote

In a fixed mindset students believe their basic abilities, their intelligence, their talents, are just fixed traits. They have a certain amount and that's that, and then their goal becomes to look smart all the time and never look dumb. In a growth mindset students understand that their talents and abilities can be developed through effort, good teaching and persistence. They don't necessarily think everyone's the same or anyone can be Einstein, but they believe everyone can get smarter if they work at it. - Carol Dweck

Co-Founders Club helps entrepreneurs to find a co-founder while learning how to build a successful startup. Learning is the common theme of all club activities. Club members select books they want to read or they select online courses they want to take and then they study them with other club members at a set pace. All learning activities are optimized to identify the best co-founders matches and to create the highest quality database of resources useful for building businesses. www.co-founders.club

And you can enjoy taking virtual travels to other parts of the world, thanks to the joint effort of people like you.
