Today, we have the wonderful pleasure of introducing you to a man who's waging a war for our happiness. Yes, he's leading a battle against whatever hates on all of our happiness. Tough battle? You bet, but he and his wife are doing one hell of a job! Meet Seth Matlins, a father, husband, fighter, believer, and T-shirt designer.
It all started with his daughter. When he became a father, he saw the world through the eyes of a girl for the first time and did not like what he saw. So, he set out on a mission to make a change. He’s fighting for a world that’s a better place for both his son and daughter, but for him, it’s not just about raising his children; it’s really about changing the world. He and his wife started an amazingly awesome site called, Feel More Better, to create a safe place for women to talk about what’s hating on their happy and to provide encouragement for one another in order to feel more better! Although his son and daughter are young, both understand the overall goal of making the world a better place and making women “more happy.” Several months ago, his daughter even offered up her own idea. Walking into the kitchen, she proudly presented him with a piece of paper that said, “Feel good about yourself.” “Daddy, maybe you can make this into a T-shirt,” she suggested.
If you could describe yourself in three words, what would those words be?
Grateful, loyal, tired.
Tell us about a girl in your life who rocks.
My almost 7-year-old daughter, EllaRose, rocks. She's everything I want to be and everything we'd like to see more of in the world. Kind, smart, curious, loving, funny, empathetic, appreciative, tender, observant, beautiful.
What are your dreams/goals/ambitions?
To raise EllaRose and Otis to be the happiest versions of themselves they can possibly be, to become that myself, and to build Feel More Better into the world's most meaningful women's brand.
What are you most proud of?
Cliche, but true. My kids, hands down.
What do you find most sexy about a girl?
Sexiness is about the sum of the parts and how they come together, not any one part.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I have exactly no idea.
What is the number one item on your bucket list?
To travel to the few places on the earth that still look as they did before we got here.
Who has been the biggest male influence in your life and why?
For sure, my father who's had more influence on who I am and who I've become than any other.
What is the biggest risk you've ever taken and what did you learn from it?
Leaving the safety and security of Hollywood to start Feel More Better. I've learned and re-learned so many hard lessons along the way, not the last of which is that it's really, really hard to make a great T-shirt.
What is one stereotype about men that isn't really true?
The same ones that aren't true about women. Stereotypes are dangerous; let's not perpetuate them.
