Hello, I’m Michael Sliwinski, founder of Nozbe - to-do app for modern teams. I write about productivity, #NoOffice, #iPadOnly and I believe that work is not a place you go to, it’s a thing you do.

Let’s talk about your team’s productivity!

I’m the founder of Nozbe and Nozbe Teams - to-do apps for busy professionals and teams, which I’ve been running for the last 13 years. I’m also a writer (#iPadOnly and #NoOffice) and podcaster.

With the launch of Nozbe Teams I’m all about “team productivity”. Basically:

My team is all-remote and we all work from our “home offices” (just like the one pictured above) while delivering two global apps with more than 700,000 users worldwide.

    As I upgrade my iPhone every year, I usually go with the same kind of model, just better. Three years ago I went with the iPhone X. Two years ago I had a choice between XR, XS and XS Max.
