I often lament have left Los Angeles, my hometown, to live in San Francisco, especially now that I have a son. After Kai was born, we found ourselves making the trek up and down Interstate 5 at least once a month. On our third not-so-pleasant jaunt past the sea of cows, Kai began screaming and would not stop. Yearning for somewhere fabulous to stop so we could cuddle him without the stench of manure and diesel, we vowed to start taking the nice way. Three years later (after chalking up more than 100,000 miles)

The gig: Michael Dubin, 35, is chief executive and co-founder of Dollar Shave Club, a subscription service that delivers razors and laughs. When Dubin released a YouTube video in March 2012 introducing his company, where members can get razors starting at $1 a month (plus $2 in shipping) delivered to their door, he had no idea the replenishable razor blades were going to be such a big hit.
