Welcome into the DailyMax
My name is Maxime Barbier, I’m 35 years old and I’ve been an entrepreneur for half of my life. After 7 years in the nightlife industry, I spent 10 years in the digital industry, or to be more specific, in the social media industry as Founder of the media group Vertical Station (75 employees, 18 million subscribers and 5000 video productions per year). A company sold in 2017 to the French National TV (TF1 / Unify group) which I officially left in October 2019.
The day after I left, I found myself with a big void in my days. I asked myself what I wanted to do with my life now, what I wanted to write in this new chapter. While having many coffees with strangers, I realized that many of us have buried our personal dreams and goals. I also found that the majority think they “have time” (contradictory to all the “I don’t have time” I heard). But in reality, life is so short (if I live 90 years, I have 660 months to live) and above all, we don’t know what tomorrow will be made of.
So I asked myself what I wanted to accomplish before I die. Two weeks later, here I am, with a bucket-list of 100 things to do. Instead of waiting for the “right time”, I decided to dedicate 2020 to myself and accomplish my bucket-list! This blog is a travel diary of my adventure. You will find my thoughts, my fears, my encounters and my feedbacks.
On April 23, 2020, against all odds, I took advantage of the lockdown to launch a new startup. Its name is TimeLeft and the “WHY” is to create a world where everyone wakes up every day inspired to conquer their dreams.

Many things may seem impossible to you today, and they are. But with a little motivation to start and a good system to continue, the impossible becomes possible over time.
First trip abroad alone, first time I have nothing to hold me in Paris. But above all, the first time I’ve been away for so long!
The result is incredible, both for the body and the mind. A complicated week to spend, but then you become a true Formula 1!
I have great admiration for the blind. To “try” to understand their world, I decided to spend a whole day blindfolded.
French has always been my pet peeve. Bad spelling, even dyslexic on the edges, I quickly understood that writing would not be my strong point…
To be honest, it’s a gift I got for my 34th birthday. I think that this special attention from my girlfriend, I probably wouldn’t have
I realized over the last 10 years, I was always chasing time and that every hour of my day had to be “optimized”.
This challenge is proof that aninthing is impossible. In 6 months, I found the strength to get into the ring to overcome my fear of fighting!
