Welcome into the DailyMax
My name is Maxime Barbier, I’m 36 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 648 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 my time 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’m getting back into entrepreneurship with a new project called Timeleft. The project quickly gained momentum, with thousands of dreams created on the platform in the first few weeks. With my partner Adrien De Oliveira, we decided to create the startup in September 2020. 12 months later, we made the choice to launch our new platform on the US market and 100% Mobile App (iOS / Android).
Timeleft is a startup backed by top tier consumer and tech VCs (Paris / New York / Lisbon). All our positions are remote, with the possibility to co-work with our teams distributed in Paris, Lisbon or Los Angeles.
Ps : We all meet every month for 3 days in the beautiful city of Lisbon, to have a real time experience of brainstorm and working together.
For the past year, we have been working on the same goal: to help as many people as possible to wake up and live their dreams.
The global pandemic we just went through made us realize that life is short and what was really important to us. At Timeleft, we felt a global and sustainable need for change in people’s lives.
We have already received thousands of dreams from all over the world, showing how many people have dreams inside them, like finding a meaningful job, travel across a country on horseback or simply learning how to draw. People are not only looking forward to make those dreams come true, they also want someone to share their dreams with.
To successfully fulfill this mission, we are looking to strengthen our team and this is where you come in!

Intention is a deeply energetic process, to bridge the gap between who we are today and who we are becoming.
Unable to stop my thoughts, I have the image of a hungry lion, locked in a mosquito cage. Is this the beginning of the challenge?
1 year after the first edition, I try again the experience in San Francisco and Los Angeles. But this time, with a little twist!
When I think back to the origin of this challenge, I realise how completely programmed my brain is to respond to challenges of any kind.
Just because you work remotely most of the time doesn’t mean you have to, or should, work remotely all the time.
I guarantee that if you come to Oaxaca, you will leave with a tenfold increase in your energy level, both physically and spiritually.
Many of us want to change, but we all dream of becoming the person we want to be. Unfortunately, we have never had the instructions to get there.
