Quentin Vigneau co-founded Oyst in January 2016 with a mission to revolutionize E-commerce. To make online payments faster and more secure, his startup created a button that enables users to buy products in 1-click directly from any website. From its initial team of 3, Oyst has grown over the past 2 years into a company of 70+ full-time employees, with a user base that is multiplying at a rate of 10 every 4 months.
Of Oyst’s early days, Quentin says, “Stress was everywhere. I mean, startups are based on kind of an insane premise: the idea that 2 or 3 people in a garage can do a better job than a huge company with an army of talent and resources. It presupposes that those 2 or 3 individuals will do an incredible amount of work. In those conditions, you have to know how to set limits and manage stress or you’ll burnout.” Describing the past 2 years as a “school of stress,” Quentin confirms the importance of stress management to his own individual long-term productivity and, especially, to the productivity and performance of his teams.
