Can a Wristband Change Your Life? We Talk with Crowdfunding Entrepreneur Victor Mathieux

Designer, entrepreneur and Kickstarter crowdfunder Victor Mathieux is a great guest on this episode of Crowd Scene. Victor’s goal with the ‘Flip Band’ project is to improve peoples’ lives by providing a simple method to change their habits, stick to resolutions and meet their goals.

In this episode, Victor talks passionately about what it means for him to be an entrepreneur, how doubt is always part of the equation, and how he works past that by reminding himself that ‘haters gonna hate, makers gonna make.’ Victor also talks about his use of virtual assistants, shares his best crowdfunding hacks for running a successful campaign, gives his ‘Guest Pick’ for another favorite project, and tells hosts Mike and Pete it’s easier to replace a bad habit than to quit something.

And what words of wisdom does Victor have taped to his wall? Find out on this episode of Crowd Scene..

Words to live by

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
